Almost everyone gets lost in sombre, critical thoughts about the past or the future. About missed opportunities from the past or tough challenges that still lie ahead. Worrying about then and later, while in the meantime 'the now' is put on automatic pilot. A great pity, because it is precisely in the present that steps can be taken to give these thoughts a place.
In the Mindfulness training you learn to become aware of the moment, of everything that happens around you, but also to become aware of your own feelings and thoughts, without immediately judging them. This creates inner peace and better concentration. Through exercises, our trainers teach you to control your attention and posture. Our training is based on the ideas of the American Jon Kabatt-Zin, who is a professor at the health centre of the University of Massachusetts. With Mindfulness, he developed a successful thought training that teaches people to deal with stress and fear, but also with pain and illness. Mindfulness makes use of various forms of meditation, concentration exercises and practical assignments.

In the training we alternate between concrete experience, experimenting with behaviour and techniques, reflecting and exploring theory. This way, the training programme fits in well with all types of participants. There is a lot of action in the training, so you actually experience the effect of new behaviour. This enables the recognition of success. We also emphasise that everyone is responsible for his or her own growth process and must take ownership of it. In our training we invite you to continuously reflect and make connections with practice. Our aim is to increase your insight and to let you make the translation yourself. This will increase the chance of real behavioural change.
This training is especially meant for participants who are dealing with burn-out complaints, stress and/or participants who are struggling with life questions.
