Bring yourself back in shape: Check out our online and inperson courses in the fall!
  • In our 8-week mindfulness courses, we teach different attitudes and practices that help boost resilience. First you learn to regulate your attention, so that you worry less about the future or ruminate about the past. You also learn how to be less affected by difficult thoughts, regulate your emotions and cultivate a more balanced mind. Furthermore, you develop the capacity to become more relaxed and ground yourself, for example through mindfulness of the body and the breath. You learn how to be kinder to yourself, listen to and respect your stress symptoms and how to take better care of yourself.

  • We suggest a maximum of 16 participants to guarantee interactivity for our courses and workshops. For our focused leadership courses, we suggest a maximum of 12 participants.

  • Yes, we offer 90-minute introductory sessions. In these sessions, we teach how mindfulness can help deal with stress better and increase wellbeing. We offer a mix of teaching, practising and sharing so that the focus is on experiencing mindfulness rather than a theoretical understanding.

  • Yes, all our workshops and courses offer meditation practices. You do not need to sit cross legged on a cushion, but can sit on a chair. Since mindfulness is a secular practice, it is important to us that everyone can meditate in whatever position possible.

  • In our 8-week mindfulness courses we meet for 1,5 or 2 hours over the period of 8 consecutive weeks. In our modular workshops we offer the content of these 8 sessions in 4 workshops of 3 hours, with the key elements of attention management, emotional balance, energy management and stress management. We suggest a period of 2 to maximum 3 weeks in between those workshops, so that participants can deepen their learning and stay tuned on the topic. You can also add further workshops on the topic of mindful communication or compassion at work to deepen the content. You can find our brochure containing more information here.

  • It is always possible to book a follow up, a refresher session or a series of guided meditations during morning or lunch breaks. We also offer mindful stretching or yoga, should you wish to include some mindful movement in your break.

  • Yes, it is possible to book a series of morning or lunch break meditations. This has become very popular during the lockdown period as a way of offering the staff a moment to recharge and to connect with their colleagues on the screen. We also offer mindful stretching or yoga, should you wish to include some mindful movement in your break.

  • In the focused leadership course, we offer techniques and attitudes specifically for people who are in leadership positions. Some are similar to the ones in the 8-week course, such as emotional regulation, attention and energy management. Others are different as we take a step back and look at what really matters to us as leaders – in order to move from fire extinguishing to a true leadership presence. Therefore, we use moments of contemplation and reflection where we step away from the busy doing to look at our vision, purpose and values in life. We believe that presence and kindness can be trained – just like any other skill – and therefore spend a great deal of this training on how to bring more humanity and kindness towards yourself and your employees.

  • In order to start a mindfulness course, it is important that participants are in relatively good physical and mental health. Especially if your colleague is suffering from acute depression or burn-out, we recommend postponing the course until they feel better. If they have professional support from a doctor or psychotherapist, they may wish to consult them first and discuss their ability to participate in the course. We invite them to discuss this with the teacher before the start of the course.

  • In each session, there will be a meditation which you will be invited to practice in between the sessions as well. If you wish to fully benefit from this training, this practice is the most important part. Many of the exercises are designed to do while you are doing the things which you already do on a daily basis, but others will require some time investment. Since many of our participants are very busy people, we recommend starting with shorter meditations of about 10 to 15 minutes a day.

  • All our trainers have followed internationally recognized teacher trainings and have been certified accordingly. They adhere to the ethical guidelines of mindfulness trainers and regularly follow retreats and workshops in their field. We are also covered by an insurance should there be any incident during the course. You can find more information about our teachers here.
