At Atomica Arts we promote self and collective transformation through the tools below:
The Art of Observing Ourselves
Meditation is a journey from external activity to inner silence. It is one of the best tools we have to balance our emotions, remove stress, find inner peace and present moment awareness. It has tangible benefits for mental and physical health. Meditation allows the body to shift into a state that counterbalances the fight/flight response.
Mindfulness is the practice of being fully present and engaged in the current moment, without judgment or distraction. It involves paying attention to one’s thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surroundings in a non-reactive way. Mindfulness is a skill that can be developed through regular practice, such as meditation, yoga, or other mindfulness-based exercises.
Mindfulness involves being aware of one’s thoughts and emotions without becoming overly attached to them. Instead of getting caught up in negative thoughts or difficult emotions, mindfulness encourages an attitude of curiosity and openness. By observing one’s thoughts and emotions with a non-judgmental attitude, it is possible to develop a greater understanding of one’s inner experiences.
Research has shown that mindfulness can have a range of benefits for mental and physical health. It has been found to reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood and well-being, enhance attention and cognitive function, and promote better sleep. Mindfulness has also been shown to be effective in treating a range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, and addiction.
Ayurveda/Science of Life
The Art of Observing Life
Ayurveda, which originated in India, is an ancient system of preventive health care, rejuvenation and longevity. It means science of life in Sanskrit and it is considered the worlds oldest medicine. Ayurveda is an integrated system of specific theories and techniques that use diet, herbs, exercise, meditation, yoga, and massage with the goal of achieving optimal health on all levels: physical, psychological, and spiritual.
Ayurveda is based on the principle that each individual is unique, and therefore requires personalized care and attention to achieve optimal health. This individualized approach takes into account factors such as one’s constitution, lifestyle, environment, and overall well-being. Ayurveda also recognizes the interconnectedness between the mind, body, and spirit, and aims to address imbalances in all three areas.
The Art of Observing Human Actions
Each one of us is playing different roles in different situations. We are in the same time adults, children, husbands or wives, somebody’s boss or employee, drivers or pedestrians, neighbors, clients, etc. While we play many roles in life, we are not the roles we play. We are the players and creators of our own stories.
Theater exercises can be a powerful tool for helping us understand and explore the concept that we are not defined by the roles we play in life. In the context of theater, actors often play many different roles throughout their careers, and must learn to embody each character authentically while also maintaining a sense of their own identity and personality.
Improvisation involves acting out a scene or scenario without a script, relying on spontaneous reactions and interactions between actors. This can be a powerful way to practice being present in the moment, and to cultivate the ability to adapt and respond to changing circumstances. It can also help us to develop a deeper sense of our own creativity and intuition.
The Art of Social Change
When we change how we see ourselves, we change how we see the world. Our behaviors have behind them attitudes that reflect our values and our values are based on our beliefs. Beliefs are simply thoughts that think they are facts. Through self-awareness we can bring that to our consciousness and become the change we wish to see in the world.
By becoming more self-aware and questioning our beliefs and values, we can shift our attitudes and behaviors in positive ways. Through this process of self-transformation, we can become agents of change in our own lives and in the world around us.
