  • Thank you Beate for this excellent initiative! This first free meditation session came in very timely and will surely help us all cope in these times of stress and fear. I must say I feel much better prepared to start my day now, after this nice cocktail of meditation practices, with a positive mindset! Have a good day yourself and keep up the good work!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Thoroughly enjoyed this introduction to Mindfulness. Great trainer, location and group of like-minded people. Will definitely be returning for a refresher in the near future!

  • I was practicing mindfulness meditation by myself using YouTube videos and apps, but I lacked a deep understanding of its principles and aims as well as regularity. The course has given me the tools and motivation to make it part of my daily practice. Since then I have benefited from greater focus, peacefulness and better sleep. I have learnt what my limits are and to listen to them. After this positive experience I also participated in a mindfulness retreat in beautiful Pajottenland: after the two days I was completely relaxed and even more motivated in keeping the practice. Absolutely recommended.

  • Thank you very much Beate; for a wonderful course. A wonderful simple and useful tool that has definitively helped me to look at life in a different more positive way.

  • Mindfulness is a great tool to train our minds and I would recommend this course to everyone who is looking to add quality to their lives.

  • I was very happy with the course and felt I was in very capable hands for my first course in meditation. I appreciated having an intensive course for practical reasons but would maybe like to also follow the more traditional 8 week one to have more time for exercising between sessions. Thank you, Brussels Mindfulness!

  • Read a complete report about the 8-week course by a participant here.

  • The retreat flowed. It was definitively creating inner peace. Thank you!

  • 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.

  • I am now meditating every day! I found the course a good balance of theory, practical and sharing vs actually meditating.

  • First and foremost, thank you so much for offering a safe haven in the form of mindfulness. It revives. It revitalizes. It breathes new life into our relentless heart, soul and brain.

  • I attended a 5-day summer retreat with Brussels Mindfulness and I really felt that I deepened my commitment to my mindfulness practice even more. It was a beautiful location in the middle of nature and we were able to attend an intense programme of different mindfulness practices throughout the 5 days. The teachers and the group were very kind and supportive and I felt very well taken care of during the whole stay. Thank you, Brussels Mindfulness team!

  • 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.

  • Excellent course and excellent teacher, all my expectations were fulfilled.

  • I was very happy with the course and felt I was in very capable hands for my first course in meditation. I appreciated having an intensive course for practical reasons but would maybe like to also follow the more traditional 8 week one to have more time for exercising between sessions.

  • The location, schedule and teachers [of the retreat] created an optimal environment for me to get my mind set to meditation. A wonderful and intense experience which may have lasted longer - but five days is fine!

  • 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!

  • The 8-week programme was a real eye opener. I loved the coach as well as the group. Everything was done in an atmosphere of compassion and understanding. I feel like now I have this big toolbox that I can keep developing and digging into whenever I face difficult or stressful situations.

  • High quality teachers and extraordinary communication and pedagogical tools (handbook, to-the-point emails, languages, knowledge..). Extraordinary mindfulness course which should be a must for everyone .... impossible not to like it! Mindfulness attitudes so much needed in hectic times.... and delicious raisins (you will find out why)!

  • The retreat was truly excellent. A wonderful location, a fantastic teacher, delicious food and a great group.
