Mindfultrail Project


An endevour to share mindfulness in the Americas.


Claudio Corbelli, PhD.

I am a Biologist, a Transpersonal Counsellor, and a Meditation and Tai Chi Instructor.

I have been teaching tai chi and mindfulness and working in an Italian center for people in psychiatric distress for the last 10 years.

I decided to take on a one-year trip to bring mindfulness practices on the road, across the American Continent from Canada to Argentina.

Joining what I love best:
travelling and mindfulness practices.

The idea is to offer a seminar called
"Inner Essence", that I created for this trip, and that includes practices from tai chi, mindfulness meditation and transpersonal counselling: my three main passions at this moment. It is an integrated approach that works on body, mind and emotions, all in one-weekend seminar. All of them have "emptiness" as their main asset, the source of all mental and physical wellness,
as I also described in my counselling thesis.

This is what I feel I can offer best at this moment,
and I would like to reach a bigger audience.

The purpose of the trip is to connect with locals in a meaningful way, learning about their lives, exchanging ideas, sharing viewpoints and mindfulness practices, teaching and learning, meeting up with tai chi and meditation groups, with mental health or environmental organisations, giving people a voice through our blog and website, connecting with others, one consciousness at the time.

It is a step in the dark, but my wish is that this project will leave behind a trail of mindfulness to link people and places with a common practice and with moments of shared presence.

The trip will start on July 7th 2016, in Newfoundland Canada, and move South through the USA, and then Central and South America, until June 2017.

The idea is to travel as inexpensively as possible and in an environmentally conscientious way, using a mix of transportation, preferring ground transportation when feasible, and staying with friends, acquaintances and locals.

This would be a dream come true: to be able to travel, learn and share what I love!

I have the spirit, the skills and the time, I just need a little financial help! From YOU!

This fund raising will help me cover travel and living expenses, organize classes and workshops, set up media communication, and could be used for other unexpected expenses during the trip.

Any contribution would be greatly appreciated, and I would love to thank you in person during the trip, maybe seeing you at one of events or hopefully helping me hosting one.

10% of the fund raised will be donated to Hearing Voices Network , an International Association working towards Mental Health.
