Mindfulness training is developed for everyone who seeks to improve quality of life, especially for those who wish to:
• learn how to deal with stress

• spend less energy on worrying
• be able to enjoy a busy life
• find more moments of joy, peace and inner stillness
• experience each moment with awareness

Mindfulness is a skill by practicing rather than learning with the mind. The basic mindfulness course consists of eight sessions of 2 hours. It has been proven that such a practice period is long enough for lasting effects.
Every session of the course includes: guided awareness and concentration exercises, yoga exercises, sitting and walking meditations.
Besides mindfulness exercises and theoretical aspects during the sessions, there is also room for discussing the experiences. Furthermore, the mindfulness exercises at home is daily practice of 45 minutes.
Each session has its own theme:
Session 1: Automatic pilot
Session 2: Observing and basic attitude
Session 3: Limits and possibilities
Session 4: Stress and stress reactions
Session 5: Consciously discovering your source of stress
Session 6: Mindful communication
Session 7: Self care: how can I take care of myself
Session 8: Evaluation and future
Everyone, old or young, fast or slow, with or without complaints can benefit from this program.
'I've never met anyone who would not benefit from more mindfulness in his life,' says the founder of mindfulness training, Jon Kabat-Zinn.
