  • The silence retreat was a perfect experience for me. The nice location, the great food, the guided meditations by Steve and Jessica, the beautiful surroundings and the energy within the group allowed me to slow down in no-time and recharge. For me this was the first mindfulness retreat and I really enjoyed the teaching and practices in self-compassion and heart-fullness.

  • It is a very welcome one day break when you can disconnect an entire day. I liked a lot how the day was structured. Thanks for the books reference dealing with acceptance, self-compassion, imperfection - great, inspiring topics.

  • I was very happy to have offered myself this course as I learned so much about mindfulness and how it impacts my life in general. Alena is an excellent trainer and shares very efficiently what she knows and she has such a desire to do so. [The course was] extremely well organized and Alena was very sensitive to the participants needs. Well done Brussels Mindfulness for your continued and future support and I hope to remain a member of your community.

  • I liked the relaxed attitude of the meditation sessions…
    I liked the walking meditation and the tree being grounded and flexible at the top…
    I liked the crunchy noise of the ground as we stepped on apples...
    I liked the noise of the silence while we were eating…
    I liked the feeling of the group looking at each other and smiling away in the silence…
    I liked the sounds of the bells sometimes with vengeance and sometimes with love…
    I liked the walk in the open looking for beauty...
    I liked the fact that we got lost...
    I liked the clarity with which Beate explained herself…
    I liked her ease and dignity…
    I liked the karma yogis doing their part with so much spontaneity...
    I liked the ambiance of the Ayurvedic massage… and Katriens elegance…
    I liked the hands on approach of the poems…
    I liked the few bees that visited us now and then to stop us from relishing the food too much…
    And above all I liked the food the efforts behind it and not to forget the gentle the positivity she showed while preparing it.
    Thank you for a lovely unforgettable weekend with so much action and so much inaction.

  • We collaborated with Brussels Mindfulness to deliver several yoga and mindfulness sessions at our annual staff seminar in 2022. Brussels Mindfulness and the trainers really went the extra mile to make this an excellent experience and ensure the sessions were well-planned and delivered. The sessions were super-relaxing and just what was needed.

  • Thank you again for the excellent 8-week mindfulness course!!! It was amazing and helped me so much more in finding balance, calm and building resilience in these special times than I expected. I will continue this journey.

  • Excellent teacher! I would recommend the course to everyone who wants to improve and learn to use and implement their own sources.

  • It was a wonderful experience thanks to a very well-prepared trainer and the concepts learnt.

  • It was just perfect. I really feel better since I can now manage my emotions on a much more efficient way.

  • Our trainer shared with us a lot of supporting tools that are easy to use in every day life! I enjoyed the audio and the book - part of my life from now on. The mini-session with few colleagues allowing us to share personal matters was a big help for me as I am quite shy in a large group. Thank you for the fantastic training :-))

  • This retreat is a wonderful opportunity to nourish and clean your mind. You reflect on your basic mental needs and concerns and are provided with a number of tools so that you can reach greater peace of mind and alleviate any unnecessary suffering. The idea is not to forget all this when you are confronted with your real-life situations. It is a never ending journey... wonderful. And there is an omnipresent kindness and support. Thank you.

  • I highly recommend Brussels Mindfulness. The teachers and approach were the right balance of providing a conceptual understanding, hands-on practice, personal and peer reflections and dialogue to understand and integrate what we have learnt into what we do and who we are. The impact has been immediate and keeps on going- it is an investment that positively affects the foundation of self and holistic wellbeing.

  • This course was everything I expected and so much more! Beate was such a good teacher, so kind and gentle with us and our progress. I really recommend this institute if you want to learn mindfulness. Your life wont be the same afterwards, promised! Thank you so much, Beate, for everything you taught me!
