What is mindfulness?

  • Mindfulness is a simple and powerful practice which teaches you how to give your full attention to what is happening while it is happening, in a bid to better handle the pressures of everyday life.
     

  • Practicing mindfulness builds confidence, resilience, strengthens your immune system, reduces stress, rest-lessness, anxiety and helps you make better choices in life.
     

  • By learning and practicing mindfulness meditations, you can see situations more clearly and react to them in a more mindful, open and calm manner. Practices help you to overcome challenging life situations more easily.
     

  • Mindfulness seems to allow pain sufferers to turn down the volume on pain signals and relate to their pain differently. Practicing helps to reduce the symptoms of most stress-based illnesses (IBS, high blood pressure, diabetes… etc.).

About the course

The mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) course consist of a theoretical and a practical part.
 

  • We learn about how we can become more resilient, confident, calm, more open, how we can reduce our pain and suffering.
     

  • From session to session we practice different mindfulness meditations.
     

  • We discuss our present mindfulness experience and share our experience on developing our individual mindfulness practice - sharing is optional. (No individual problems are discussed at the course.)
