For many oriental disciplines, "Nabhi", the navel point, is a fundamental energy center for the harmony of the body and psyche.
Centre of fire and action, of Self-realisation through a balanced management of life, it contains the strength and the rhythm needed to keep up and constantly sustain the blooming of the heart, where the potential human unfolds and expresses itself through consciousness and conscious choices.
Welcomed by an intensely alive and present nature, our association has found an equally significant nucleus here, in the Bologna Apennines, a few meters from the border between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany and immersed in an uncontaminated, peaceful area.

We called this place "Centro della Terra", a place dedicated to mother Earth and at service of the awareness of all the beings.
It is here that we decided to realize our project of knowledge, creativity and conscious life style.
Our Centre is suitable for practicing the disciplines that most benefit from a quite, clean environment.
Here we organize courses and host people who wish to spend some days in the woods, to practice and to listen to the silence of the mountains, getting away from the chaos of the cities to get closer to their true self.

Nabhi Association

Founded in October 2016 by Ravijit, Luca and Luana, Nabhi is a no-profit cultural association that offers Kundalini Yoga courses, artistic workshops and beautiful excursions.
We promote equal exchange among people and cultures and the exploration of the multiple languages which constitute the sole voice of humanity.
We often collaborate with other associations with purposes similar to ours, promoting the dialogue between neighboring and distant realities.

Like a fabric, composed by diverse and differently coloured threads, we move following a simple and uniform weft: to live consciously and to share the gifts we receive, weaving life with fulfilment and love.
