This flash session held by the ESADE Alumni Career Services will examine ideas and techniques for understanding the workings of the mind and learning how achieve peace of mind.
Peace of mind enables us to stop identifying ourselves with what is going on in our mind and be less caught up in our thoughts, emotions, desires, memories, etc. We can be happier and create a wider sphere of action in our professional and personal life.
Like the ripples on a lake after a stone is thrown in, our minds are constantly unsettled. Only when there are no waves and there is complete stillness is it possible to see the bottom of the lake and the treasures hidden there. When the mind is entirely at peace we can see our treasure, our own potential.
We will practice methods that combine theory and practice and can be used in our everyday life without taking up a minute of our time – breathing differently, being aware of what's going on in our mind, paying attention to the present moment, etc – and also an introduction to meditation. The aim of all this to achieve peace of mind.
The flash session will be led by Alfredo Rey, a biology graduate, personal and executive coach, and meditation trainer and teacher. For more than ten years, Alfredo has been spending several months a year in India. His work in Spain at the Laboratorio del Alma combines what he has learnt from traditional Indian wisdom with western coaching and emotional intelligence techniques.
