heartmind Lab brings together a team of scientists and academics to combine the most recent breakthroughs in Western science with the wisdom and practices of the ancient Orient.

You will be taken on a personalised journey of self-rediscovery to reset the balance between your bodily ecosystem and the external environment. heartmind Lab is a truly multidisciplinary workshop, tailored to the needs of individuals and groups, which allows you to trace the map of your inner world and chart a course through the complex labyrinth of life.

To this end, genetics, neuroscience and cutting-edge stem cell research enter into dialogue with the traditions of the internal styles of Chinese martial arts, Taoist thought and Indian disciplines promoting harmony of body and mind.

Participants will be guided by masters, researchers and teachers through the discovery of the heart-brain axis and the ties between Oriental disciplines and contemporary Western research. Together, they will explore the fundamentals of a new model of self-growth founded on the innate potential of the individual.
