Mindfulness is a way of life which develops greater self-awareness, self-regulation, empathy, and resilience. Studies show that these emotional competencies are foundational to emotional intelligence and essential to performance and well-being.

We offer 1 on 1 coaching, mindfulness workshops or the 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course.

8 week mindfulness training

Mindfulness training is an intensive experience-based training.

Mindfulness training doesn’t focus on eliminating or changing problems but rather opens doors to discover new ways to relate to them. Automatic reactions and patterns are explored and in so doing we learn to create space for creative intentional choices. Awareness of and a gentleness towards ourselves and the present moment will be cultivated.

This course is particularly relevant if you’d like to:

  • Increase your resilience
  • Productively deal with stress, difficult emotions, tension, anxiety or pain
  • Become more present and intentional in your life
  • Discover more contentment, peace, and inner stillness
  • Explore mindfulness in your life


Mindfulness is a skill which is practiced not an intellectual theory. The course consists of 8 sessions of 2.5 hours + 1 full day over a period of 8 weeks. Sessions will include guided awareness and concentration exercises, mindful movement, sitting and walking meditations as well as offer space for discussion of experiences. Additionally, you will be asked to practice 45 minutes a day with guided exercises. This format has been shown to have long-lasting positive effects.

The session themes are:

  • Session 1: Automatic pilot
  • Session 2: Working with obstacles
  • Session 3: Awareness of boundaries
  • Session 4: Exploring Stress
  • Session 5: Consciously meeting stress
  • Session 6: Thoughts aren’t facts
  • Session 7: Choosing Wellbeing
  • Session 8: The rest of your life
