• 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 really enjoyed the course because I was able to know myself more and into depth.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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)!

  • 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!

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I was very happy with the course and felt I was in very capable hands for my first course in meditation.

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

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • The retreat is very good in grounding oneself in this fast-paced environment. I unreservedly recommend it!

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