MBSR Training (start Friday January 7th 2022) – Online/Face to face
Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Training of 8 weeks

Mindfulness is a powerful skill that allows you to truly experience and enjoy life. Through the cultivation of presence, returning your attention to the present moment with non-judgmental awareness, mindfulness practice inspires a deeper level of connection, acceptance, and joy.

By practicing mindfulness, you will learn to make conscious choices instead of responding on autopilot. This will allow you to nip stress triggers in the bud and change how you deal with unhelpful thought patterns. It will create a higher state of awareness and better enable you to guard your boundaries.

The training of mindfulness doesn’t focus on changing problems, but on changing your attitude towards them. You can’t change tension or a stressful mood, but mindfulness helps you to look at painful issues from a different point of view. It encourages you to gently move problems out of the focal point of our awareness.

The Mindfulness training is developed for everyone who seeks to improve quality of life, especially if you want to:

  • learn how to deal with stress
  • learn how to deal with difficult emotions, like tension, anxiety or pain
  • spend less energy on worrying
  • be able to enjoy a busy life
  • find more moments of joy, peace and inner stillness
  • experience each moment with awareness
  • increase your energy levelss

Given the current circumstances (COVID-19), I will offer the training online as long as the lockdown measures apply. When lockdown measures are lifted, the training will continue face to face. I use Zoom for this purpose. You don’t need anything extra for this. When you sign up, I’ll send you a link that will give you access to the meetings.

Considerations are:

  • Will I be able to follow the training at home undisturbed?
  • Do I have enough space for all forms of meditation?
    • Session 1 & 2: a lying meditation (you can lie on your bed or on a mat, a blanket is nice)
    • Session 3 & 4: yoga exercises (a mat is nice, but not necessary).
  • Session 5 – 8: a sitting meditation (a meditation cushion is nice, but not necessary, can also sit on a straight chair)
