    ACTIVITIES

    OUR HELPPOINT PROVIDES INITIAL SUPPORT FOR PEOPLE IN NEED

     Despite laws and international conventions meant to safeguard individual rights and protections, violence in all of its forms still persists in our society.

    1. HELPPOINT

      OUR HELPPOINT PROVIDES INITIAL SUPPORT FOR PEOPLE IN NEED

      The HelpPoint offers initial information, guidance and support.  The meeting is meant to create a dialogue (Cor ad cor loquitur) that allows the person to better understand the problems concerning their position and to identify viable alternatives. HelpPoint activity is essential for those who work within the Francesca Centre:  it increases awareness of the spectrum of social injustice and violence and lays the foundation for sharing a renewed social conscience between professionals and people who are experiencing injustice in their lives.

    2. FC CONVERSATIONS

       Despite laws and international conventions meant to safeguard individual rights and protections, violence in all of its forms still persists in our society.

      The collaborative work of the Francesca Centre expands the resources available to a Person subjected to violence to regain their individual worth and achieve their freedom. One resource is the Francesca Centre Conversations. Eliminating violence requires both inner and outer examination of humanistic principles that hold all people and nature in respect. To nurture this critical spirit, the Francesca Centre holds monthly Conversations in Teatro San Salvatore, which are interdisciplinary interviews followed by an extended conversation open for all to contribute. Listening, reflection and discernment, and the desire to know one’s self, encourage us to consider new perspectives, leading to action that fulfills our responsibilities to each other, to the world around us, and to Truth.

    3. La Mindfulness

      Prevention Project in Schools: A Mindful Journey from "I" to "We"

      integrating Human Values and Mindfulness in English and Italian into the school curriculum, in a practical and creative way.

      A Value is...

      what makes life worth living. Cultivating Human Values - Truth, Righteous Conduct, Peace, Love and Non-violence - in children and young people, who are the future, means laying the foundations for a new humanity, in its various aspects: physical, intellectual, emotional, mental and spiritual. Cultivating responsibility - accountability to oneself and consequently to others - with joy. 

      - Francesca Centre & Tavas

        Mindfulness is ...

      "The awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally to the unfolding of experience moment by moment"

      - Jon Kabat Zinn
