8 week mindfulness course


We can’t influence everything that happen to us. But we can influence how we deal with what happens to us. During a Mindfulness training you will learn to look at situations in your life with mildness and awareness.
Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Training (MBSR Training) is a suitable training to bring your attention to the here and now. With mildness and perceptiveness you learn to look at situations in your life. This allows you to recognize stress stimuli and automatic thought patterns faster and makes it easier to free yourself from worries and frustrations. The course consists of 8 sessions of 2.5 hours that are given weekly, plus a practice day in silence.
What does a session look like?
Body and awareness practices are discussed in each meeting. You don’t need to have any experience with meditation. And also when you meditae for years already, this training can support you. You will gain insight into what stress and stressful communication does to you, how you deal with stress yourself and how awareness helps you to recognize the first beginning signs of tension. This will make you realise that you have a choice in how you deal with stimuli. During the course we create the possibility to exchange experiences. The program helps you to gain resilience and increases you self-healing abilities.


After each session you receive practical assignments to practice at home, so that you learn to apply what you learn during the training, also in your daily life. The programme therefore also asks for a time investment next to the weekly meetings.


During the first meeting you receive a workbook and links with the meditations for the home practice.
