Mindfulness is a practice that cultivates a state of active, non-judgemental attention

on the present moment. Mindfulness as we know it today was developed and first

used in the late 1970s at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of

Massachusetts Medical School and has since then helped thousands improve their

mental and physical well-being.

In this workshop you will discover how mindfulness can help you, among other


• reduce stress, anxiety, and irritability.

• avoid burn-out and improve your overall health.

• respond as opposed to react to stressful situations so that you will feel calmer

  and more focused.

• improve working memory, attention span and stamina...yes, also in the booth!

• reduce mental chatter to find more inner peace.

• deal better with difficult emotions and feelings.

• and, why not, enjoy life more fully by being more present to it.


Special attention will be given to how stress functions, what its effects are and how

Mindfulness can help you deal with it.

The workshop will be conducted in English and will have a strong experiential

focus. You will learn practical exercises that you will be able to start using

immediately in your - often very busy - life.
