Content Training

A mindfulness training always has the same structure, wherever you follow the training, and lasts 8 weeks. This MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) training is developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn. The training consists of 8 meetings of about 2.5 hours, a practice day and exercises for practice at home.

Your own experiences are central to this training, so we devote a lot of time to experience. During the meetings we do mindfulness exercises such as a body exploration exercise (body scan meditation), lying and standing movement exercises (yoga), and seated meditations.

Afterwards we discuss these exercises together. I provide you with the theoretical background and together we look for practical tips to integrate mindfulness into your daily life. We will elaborate on themes such as stress, emotional burden, worrying and how we can deal with them differently.

You will learn to recognise your thought patterns, your automatic reactions and your emotions during the training. By doing so, you create more space between what is happening and your reaction to it, allowing you to make a conscious choice. They sometimes say that a mindfulness training can cause a lot of stress. It involves practice and requires quite some discipline, courage and perseverance. Fortunately, the weekly group meetings and the experiences of your fellow participants will be of great help. You don’t have to do it all by yourself. The training does not take away the stress or difficult situations in your life, but teaches you to deal with them skilfully.

During the practice day we do all mindfulness exercises one after the other and we experience what it is like to be quiet for a longer period of time. That can be quite challenging, but everyone is really enthusiastic afterwards!

During the 8-week training and by practicing at home, you train your attention. Attention is like a muscle. The more you train it, the stronger it becomes. With the meetings, the practice day and practice at home, you establish a solid foundation for integrating mindfulness into your life. This provides you with all the tools you need to make mindfulness a sustainable part of your life.

For whom?

This mindfulness training is suitable for just about everyone. Who doesn’t suffer from any stress? After all, we all want to enjoy life more!

I am category 1 certified mindfulness trainer and affiliated with the Association Mindfulness Based Trainers in the Netherlands and Flanders (VMBN) and I therefore comply with the requirements for reimbursement by health insurance companies.

Many insurers reimburse mindfulness trainings from the complementary package (e.g. in the case of burnout complaints). At www.zorgwijzer.nl you can see at a glance what health insurer reimburses, what is reimbursed and what the conditions are. (in Dutch)
