8 week mindfulness course
Start Thursday evening 19th October 2017 in Brussels (Belgium)
This program is suitable for everyone who wants to cope better with the challenges of everyday life. No prior knowledge is required. It is scientifically substantiated and makes you more resistant against stress, anxiety, worry, pain and depression.
How does it work?
The training is based on two pillars: mindfulness and cognitive therapy.
Mindfulness is also called attention training. It is a meditation technique that is more than 2500 years old. Mindfulness lets you get back in touch with the power and richness of the now in every moment. Mindfulness opens up your life towards a deeper appreciation and inner freedom.
Cognitive therapy is based on the observation that negative thoughts can contribute to psychological complaints. Negative emotions can also intensify negative thoughts. Throughout the training we get deeper insight into these mechanisms and we learn to let them go.
Mindfulness cultivates attention to the only moment we have: the present moment. This allows us to live life as fully as possible, even in the most difficult moments.
What does the training consist of?
During the 8 weeks of training, we work with practical exercises and assignments.
