No matter who we are or where we live, deep inside we all feel incomplete. It’s like we have lost something and need to get it back. Just what that something is, most of us never find out. And of those who do, even fewer manage to go out and look for it.

- Elif Shafak

Principles for the development of a complete mind: Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses – especially learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.

- Leonardo Da Vinci

You cannot estimate yourself happy but not unhappy either? Do you miss a sense in your life? You never find a reason of being in your existence?

"It is this feeling of fullness from an inner harmony which brings outer harmony. It is sustainable joy whatever the changes and the events".


Do you feel shallow your life? Do you feel overwhelmed in your life and cannot manage it properly?

“Excess creates less”. This is important to apply a measure, an equilibrium, a detachment for everything.


Do you feel to be surrounded by cement buildings? Do you feel the lack of green in your life? Do you remember the sound of silence? Have you ever waken up with the sound of birds and nature?

"It is essential to reconnect to Mother Earth, to vibrate with it, to realize you need it as fish needs water. Nature makes us live and it communicates with us".


Do you know our mood is affected by what we eat? Are you aware of what you eat? Do you take your time to eat and enjoy or is it just a mission and need?

"You are what you eat, find pleasure in each bite, transmute the food."


Do you feel dependent or addicted to strong sensations? Do you feel free or enslaved by the conditioning of our modern society? Do you really want to discharge your burden and change your bad habits? Does your body need detox?

"Get cleaned and detoxified physically and mentally."


Do not you think there are other ways to develop your consciousness? When was it last time you stay alone with yourself?

“Coming back to your center”, there are many different techniques adapted to each one as there are different ways to reach the same point.


Are you ready to try different sensation? Did you find your center of interest? Does your body need physical challenges and achievements? Does your mind and soul get enough attention?

"Applying practically the philosophy and wise patterns of Life is essential by practicing the mindfulness to activate your 5 senses and thereby to develop your 6th one."

Community & Sharing

You are connected to thousands of contacts through the social media but you do not feel connected to yourself? Do you miss to be surrounded by like-minded people? Do you lack deep talks?

"Life is real especially when it is shared. Does drinking a bottle of champagne alone has the same taste?"


Are you full of many serious responsibilities? Have you lost your sense of humor? Do you see the little details of amusement?

"To be healthy you need to laugh at least 6 minutes per day. It is so essential to take an overview, detachment, and derision about our reality (daily life). Life is a game in which the first rule is to say that it is not a game."

(New) vision

Do you hear the sound of the child inside you? Do you take care of the child inside you? Do you let enough space to your inner child?

"Regaining your inner child allows to marvel at the small gifts of the present life."

Do you want to dedicate this gift to nourish yourself?
