This 8- week training is a thorough attention training, in which you learn daily exercises that make you physically and mentally fitter and more resilient. It is a fixed program of which effectiveness has been scientifically proven over the past 35 years.
Mindfulness simply means: Being aware of the current experience. By learning to direct your attention more frequently, you become more and more aware of your automatic distractions.
You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.
We live in a busy world and are flooded with waves of impressions and challenges every day. We respond to this with ever deeper ingrained reaction patterns. This can feel like we have no choice and we are “being lived.” Stress, burnout, excessive worrying, anxiety, gloominess, depression or sleeping problems can result from this lifestyle. Through mindfulness you learn to respond more consciously to setbacks, from outside and within yourself. You train your attention and practice with a number of attitudes: non-judgment, patience, fresh perspective, non-striving and acceptance.
The training is valuable for everyone, and particularly effective for people with complaints as described above. In the words of Jon Kabat-Zinn, founder of this 8-week mindfulness training: “I have never met anyone who would not benefit from more mindfulness in his life.”
