The name Menscorpore comes from a line of verse written by the Latin poet Juvenal. “Mens sana in corpore sano” means, literally, a healthy mind in a healthy body. By understanding the indelible interdependence between the physical self and the psycho-emotional one, we interpret human health as a dynamic equilibrium. Since its creation in 2014, Menscorpore has offered a variety of different programs targeting physical-emotional and social-relational well-being. The organization is headquartered in Treviglio, east of Milan, our family’s home.

Living Nature

These walking tours take participants into places they might otherwise overlook—parts of a hillside or valley with unique stories and vistas, spaces inside our consciousness that help us know ourselves better.

 

“Forest bathing” has been shown to be very beneficial for human health, an experience that produces a profound sense of well-being and connected with nature. More than a simple walk, Living Nature is meditation in movement, led by an expert guide. Immersed in the sounds of a meadow, vineyard, or woodland, the participants’ attention is drawn from one environmental sensation to another, and then inward, to the rhythms of their own bodies. The result is a mind at peace.

 

The Living Nature Experience lasts about two hours. Introduced with a moment to create alignment among the participants, it ends with an opportunity for everyone to process and express what they have just gone through. No preparation or equipment is needed, although participants should wear good walking shoes and comfortable, loose-fitting clothing.

 

Let go and be infused with the sounds, aromas, and colors around you. Breathe in the silence, feel the firm earth, and smell the soft air. Listen, and listen to yourself. Step after step, cultivate an awareness of the whole.

 

“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you. You must travel it by yourself. It is not far. It is within reach. Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know. Perhaps it is everywhere – on water and land.”

Walt Whitman
