• 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!

  • 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.

  • 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)!

  • 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

  • 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 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!

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

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

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

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

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

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.
