Advanced Mindfulness Teacher: Marieke van den Dungen

€550 (including VAT)

This training is based on the original, evidence-based MBSR/MBCT training (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction). It has been scientifically proven that 8 weeks of practice offers lasting effects in reducing stress and various stress-related complaints.

During the course, we will practice exercises with attention, give education, and you will learn to be more aware in the here & now. We will do various exercises and meditations, such as the body scan. As a result, you will enjoy pleasant experiences more and you will learn to better deal with indicating your boundaries, difficulties, & acceptance.

The training is an effective way to control stress and improve the quality of your life. We learn to become aware of the mind’s tendency to wander between worrying about the past & the future, and we discover that there is an alternative; a space of conscious choice.
