What we do

These sessions are a regular thing for me. They help me embrace the silence. Really taking the time to come back to myself.

Looking to refresh your mindfulness practice ? Longing to create space for a weekly pause from the daily stress of life? Wanting to bring greater variety to your meditation by reconnecting with some of the mindfulness practices you may have forgotten about? Or are you simply seeking to enjoy meditating with a group again? If so, the meditation evenings at the Center for Mindfulness are for you!

The sessions help me get back on my meditation cushion at home. the week after.

Practicing and exchanging in a group

The refresher meditation evenings not only offer you the opportunity to boost your meditation practice but to also to experience the benefits of practicing in a group. And just like in the mindfulness training, the sessions will also touch upon how to apply mindfulness in daily life. In essence, these evenings are intended to help you maintain and deepen your practice.

Practicing with guidance

The evenings are guided by certified mindfulness trainers. You can expect to reconnect with the classic mindfulness exercises and to be inspired by new variations. The trainer will lead each practice with a short introduction or contemplation. The sessions are intended to be light in both approach and tone. And of course, the trainers are available to answer your questions, whether they be about your home practice or mindfulness more generally.

I’ve been looking for a fixed time and space I can go to so I can maintain my mindfulness practice, just like I do with yoga. I’ve found it!

Program

The program will consist of a variety of different practices. In addition to a sitting meditation, an evening often consists of a more physically oriented meditation, such as the body scan, mindful yoga or a walking meditation. And there is always - depending on the group's needs - space for exchanging insights about your experienceduring the session as well as with integrating mindfulness in daily life. Mostly however, these sessions are meant to be a time for rest, stillness and contemplation.

Practicing with a specific teacher

In principle every teacher teaches on a fixed Tuesday or Friday evening of the month. This way, you can choose to attend the sessions of a teacher of your choice.

English and Dutch spoken Evenings

Tuesday evenings are led in English by native speakers who also understand Dutch. Friday evenings are led in Dutch by teachers who understand English. Both evenings are open to anyone who feels comfortable with guidance in either language.

For whom

The sessions are for individuals who have participated in a MBSR or other eight week mindfulness training.
