Mindfulness for individuals

Individual or in groups, on location or online, in English or in Dutch often reimbursed by the employer and health insurer

Mindfulness is basically a training in attention. The primary aim is to effect a change in attitude in dealing with stress, pressure, attention, focus, while improving your communication skills and creativity. Mindfulness increases your awareness. You learn to be present in the moment, purposefully and in a non-judgmental way. With mindfulness you consciously observe the moments in your life. By opening up, you will see things as they are. This helps you to respond to pressure, thoughts or feelings and make informed decisions. 

Mindfulness makes it is easier to relax, concentrate and take some distance. It is primarily about working on a different attitude. How do you deal with changing circumstances (especially in times of COVID), stress and work pressure? How do you get more attention and focus for the things that are really important?

MBSR training for students

Learn to deal with stress and discomfort

With the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) training you learn in 8 weeks to deal differently with stress, worry, pain and discomfort. You learn to meditate, discover inner peace and headspace. This helps you to take better care of yourself, to be more balanced and to live with a fresh look and to enjoy the moment.

Mindfulness isn't a trick you can learn in a few hours. It is a posture that you can master in 8 weeks and that continues to expand and deepen over time. It is similar to surfing. You learn by trial and error and while doing so you develop and gradually expand your skills. Through continuous training you will master your board under all circumstances.

Mindful at Work

The 8-weeks Mindful at Work training is based on the scientifically proven MBSR training. It helps you to deal more effectively and healthier with stress, work pressure and changes. It opens the way to more focus, balance and creativity . 

You will learn to be present in the moment, with full attention. It helps you to recognize patterns around stress, uncertainty and discomfort and teaches you how to respond consciously.


In our changing times and demanding society, it sometimes becomes too much, with absenteeism or less optimal functioning as a result. Mindfulness coaching helps you to be more resilient, in your work and private life. 

You will be more relaxed and less rushed.  Mindfulness helps you to find the right perspective, be more creative and collaborative with others.

Compassion training

Learn to live with your heart, be kind to yourself, experience more connection with others and your surroundings. Be less afraid of making mistakes. This is what the compassion training is all about.  Deepen the effect of mindfulness with heartfulness. During 9 sessions you will learn to have more compassion, experience more happiness and deal healthier with yourself and others.


Being a parent can be challenging. The hustle and bustle of every day and the changing working conditions, make it hard to be with our children with full attention and inner peace. At times you feel more like a manager than a parent. During the 9-week Mindful Parenting training you will learn to apply mindfulness in day-to-day life, work, education and family activities.
