What is Mindfulness?
Shankar gallery Richard Lazzara via Compfight
Mindfulness means “awareness of the present moment”. Mindfulness is a meditation technique that was first practiced by Buddhist monks, thousands of years ago. In the late 70s, Mindfulness was introduced to our western culture by (among others) Jon Kabat-Zinn, and has since then consistently been integrated into psychotherapy. Currently, it is an established technique in psychotherapy to improve our quality of life, and to treat problems like depression and anxiety.
Mindfulness invites us to “wake up”, by becoming more aware of the experiences in our life, to pause, and to rediscover what we already know. You’ll learn to live more the “in the present”, and enjoy the little and big moments in life.
While practicing Mindfulness you will learn to observe the thoughts that appear in your consciousness, to allow their presence, to not be judgmental towards them, to accept them and to let go of them.
Mindfulness has been scientifically proven to reduce stress, and to improve personal health and well-being.
What does the course consist of?
The course consists of 8 weekly sessions of 90 minutes. In the sessions you’ll learn Mindfulness through meditation and practical exercises that you can incorporate in your daily life. Also, in every session we’ll focus on how to apply Mindfulness to specific areas in your life. Click to go to the overview of the course.
For who is the course and what benefits will I obtain?
The course is open for everybody who’s interested in Mindfulness. It can also be a great relief if you’re feeling stressed, anxious, or easily frustrated or if you cannot let go of negative thoughts.
The course will improve your quality of life and reduce your stress levels. You’ll learn to increase your attention span in order to be more aware of the present moment.
As a result of the Mindfulness course you will feel more balanced, calm, and creative. You will notice that you’ll be less easily frustrated, and able to find tranquility, even when you’re in stressful situations.
When will the group start?
There will be two groups, one in English, starting on the 9th of March, and one in Spanish, starting on the 11h of March.
How much does it cost?
Prices will be €25 per session for the entire course. You can also assist to single sessions with a cost of €40 per session. However, it is recommended to follow the entire course, since otherwise you’ll miss out on the practices between sessions.
