Taking in the Good: Developing Inner Resources Through Positive Neuroplasticity

with Kirsten Victor, certified positive neuroplasticity trainer (by Dr. Rick Hanson)

Many people think their happiness and wellbeing depends on external factors such as money, professional success, love or even the weather. But what if you could learn to be happy, independently of what life throws at you? Would it not be wonderful to know how to restore your happiness when something unwanted happens and to enjoy the good things more fully?

Reprogramming your brain

The brain is continually remodeling itself as we learn from our experiences. When we repeatedly stimulate a circuit in our brain, we strengthen it. Because our brains are like Velcro for the bad and Teflon for the good, frustration, worry and stress are quickly wired into your nervous system. To beat this negativity bias, we will teach you a powerful method - using the science of positive neuroplasticity - for truly resilient wellbeing.

Emotional healing and resilience

True happiness comes from within. Neuroscientist, psychologist, meditation teacher and best-selling author Dr. Rick Hanson has developed a powerful method to transform ordinary day-to-day experiences into inner strengths, such as resilience, self-confidence, compassion, joy and a feeling of being loved. The mindful internalisation of such psychological resources can help us deal with feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, loss and shame, and support our wellbeing, emotional healing and resilience.

Increase gratitude, self-compassion, and happiness

Increase gratitude, self-compassion, and happiness

The mind is like a garden which needs to be maintained and cultivated, because if it is left to itself it will develop some unhelpful thinking patterns. We need to regularly pull out the weeds and plant new flowers. 

A recent study published by the Journal of Positive Psychology on Learning to Learn from Positive Experiences  showed that deliberately internalizing beneficial experiences can lower anxiety and depressed mood, and increase gratitude, self-compassion, and happiness in general.

Who can benefit from a Positive Neuroplasticity Training?

This course is for everyone who is interested in personal growth or who wants to develop resilience and decrease negative thinking. It builds on elements of mindfulness and takes it further by teaching methods that can help to change your brain for the better. While it is recommended as a follow-up training to the 8-week mindfulness course, it is not required to have followed a mindfulness course. 

With this training you will learn to

  • Release fear and develop an increased sense of safety and protection
  • Develop an increased self-confidence and feeling of agency
  • Experience a greater sense of resilience and the ability to bounce back more quickly in difficult times
  • Have a greater feeling of joy, peace and happiness
  • Be able to rise to challenges by motivating yourself and overcoming old fears and pains
  • Become more focused and calmer with a strong sense of inner peace
  • Feel more connected and compassionate
  • Reduce unnecessary cravings and feel more satisfied with your life
  • Discover 15 ways to feel good

"This course has given me the language and very useful basic tools to help me have a more positive attitude towards life. I can now better understand my basic needs in order to be happy and how I can take care of them."

"After many years of searching, high & low and across several different places, courses & approaches, I can say with full confidence that the Positive Neuroplasticity course with the Brussels Mindfulness Institute IS IT. The best course & practice I have come across, in the broad field of mindfulness."

"I’m so happy and fulfilled (with work ongoing / more progress to be made still, of course!) to have found & attended it. The practice has brought a measurable change for the better in my life, I very much feel, and has helped me enormously in dealing with anxiety, stress and (post-) burnout."

"Specifically and on top of the daily practice, I loved the scientific foundations of the course, and the rational(ist) approach at its core. Very solid stuff, with leads & links to additional reading which I have found both fascinating and practically applicable in my psychological & emotive pursuits. I would recommend it very highly indeed!” 

"Without your coaching I wouldn't have the tools to explore and treat my problems. The antidotes you laid out in the pillar connection, examples like rehearsing, using I instead of you to start a conversation has helped enormously. I feel by doing just that, there is a U-turn in my life. Thanks to you and also thanks to me! "
