• 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 learnt into who we are and what we do. The impact has been immediate and keeps on going - it is an investment that positively affects the foundations 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!

  • 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!

  • Beate is really a great instructor. She has a sense for when to intervene, is clear in her guidance and has a warm voice.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 had been reading books about mindfulness and experimenting with apps and downloads but I could never really bring myself to actually applying it. After doing this course, I have a much better understanding of what mindfulness is, and I finally integrated it into my daily life. I feel much more relaxed and better able to cope with the stress of combining my job with young children.

  • The Summer retreat was like a breath of fresh air! The timing was just perfect for me. After these days I feel rested and recharged on mental and physical level. Thank you Brussels Mindfulness for organising this retreat on such an excellent level!

  • 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 to have found and attended this course. 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 findings 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!

  • 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!

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

  • A 5-day silent retreat is an excellent way to deepen one's meditation practise and push the reset button. Sometimes it is not always an easy experience but the Brussels Mindfulness staff provides excellent support to guide you through. I thoroughly recommend their retreats, which are extremely well organised

  • 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!

  • The retreat allowed me to settle my mind, to feel safe and supported. The place was ideal to relax and practice.
