Place: International Centre of Gandia of the UV

 
Description:

Course framed in the 36th Universitat d'Estiu de Gandia

Description

Attention is a fundamental faculty in the cognitive process that leads to the consciousness of being. A higher quality of attention favours a more trustworthy cognitive process and, therefore, a greater consciousness of being. The current education system does not provide educators and learners with tools that enable them to develop their right to grow in consciousness and, therefore, once adults, citizens cannot exercise their duty and responsibility to live awake. This course will outline proposals for implementing mindfulness in adults and show the basis for them to cultivate it in their daily lives. Theoretical principles will be presented and experimented with practical exercises. Coordinator: Francisco Dokushô Villalba, Zen Buddhist teacher, founding abbot of the Zen temple Luz Serena, founding president, teaching director of the Plena School of Attention, writer, translator and lecturer.
