STILLE AND THE CITY – citySTILLE
Living in a big city
Living in a big city nowadays can be quite challenging as these large settlements seems to emphasize most the Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity of the VUCA world we live in. Often, these unpredictable external conditions are affecting our life standard and work performance. Politics, economic intercourses and demographics across geographic and political boundaries are unpredictable. Social and cultural developments are complexed and the mantra of the future seems to be constant and fast change. Who, Where and How am I in the midst of all?
STILLE = SPACE
When we practice mindfulness and compassion, we stop living a life on automatic pilot, at the will of the external, unpredictable conditions. We start being sensitive to our everyday experiences in a different way: from the mind and the heart of a fine observer, a non-judgemental being that embraces life with peace, love and equanimity.

This awareness has the capacity to clear away the information overload that contributes to our stress. We create space in our mind and in our day by “breathing” in the present moment how it is now – not how we expected, thought or imagined it will be. Training this innate ability of mind to be present and implicitly be well – as neuroscientific evidence spots out – cultivates healthy mindsets and happy, well-being city inhabitants.
A clear and peaceful mind has a great potential for new ideas, for better decisions, focus, creativity and for being happy in every now!
“Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be aware of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and the surrounding environment in a nonjudgmental way, in the present moment.” Jon Kabat-Zinn

Breathing in…. breathing out….letting go…

„ In the midst of a fast-paced life within the city landscape nothing is more important or nurturing than sitting still and being consciously aware of that deep, sacred and healing stillness within. In this stillness we are warmheartedly connected with ourselves, with each other and with the entire universe.” Nicoleta Pfeffer-Barbela, citySTILLE founder
