This is the standard mindfulness program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn. The MBSR course is very carefully thought out to gradually teach the techniques but also the correct approach to practice for best results. The effectiveness of MBSR is scientifically documented, and besides the lasting effects, it is a wonderful tool for self-discovery.

Mindfulness teacher: Mihaela

Location: online via ZOOM

Almost all of us have experienced stress at the work place, which can leave people feel tired, burnt out, anxious and vulnerable. Practicing mindfulness not only has physiological benefits for individuals but also has a positive impact on their workplace. Mindfulness helps drive many aspects of a healthy workplace including wellbeing, relationships, and creativity.

This  particular course focuses on developing resilience and the ability to deal with difficult situations at the work place. During stressful periods, people with high levels of resilience will be able to persevere and remain engaged and productive. Mindfulness at work can support resilience by equipping people with the ability to understand their emotions, their level of stress, and their ability to influence them.

Taking just one day from time to time to return to ourselves, to reconnect and reset, is a wonderful way of cultivating balance and wisdom in our life.

Testimonials

I was sceptical at first, but it didn't take long to realise that I could lead my life in a much more peaceful, empowered, and less stressful way, using the techniques taught by Jessica. She is patient, kind, caring, and with an aura of calm, led us through different types of meditation. Thanks so much Jessica, and for those who are thinking about attending, I would encourage you to go further and take the plunge.

- Jo, Brussels, 8-week MBSR course

The few reserves that I had as we learned that the course would take place online soon evaporated, as we saw that everything was so well organised and that you were able to give the course a clear direction, which was easy to follow. I felt that all the participants shared this feeling. I feel that I am ready to practice on my own and really cannot wait to put in place my own daily routine.

- Tommi, Brussels, 8-week MBSR course

“Céline created a warm and safe virtual space for us. She is very good at listening and asking questions to dig deeper in our body and mind, feel and think more consciously about experiences, moments and exercises. Her course was like space travel within ourselves. Feeling safe was essential for me to explore the darker, more complicated areas of myself and to share them, so thank you Céline for this wonderful introduction!”

- Jorine, online 8-week MBSR course

“When I started with Céline, I was wondering “what if I could control my thoughts?”. I was also living with my anxiety, anger and many other issues. Now that I have finished the mindfulness course with Céline, all these issues are not gone, but I learned how to live with them. I learned how to accept who I am more and more. I could feel the change with every breath in and out. I can use the tools I learned in this course to face my issues. That is why I advise everyone who is looking for tools and practices to face this challenging life to give it a try. Thanks Céline.”
