In our two upcoming MBSR trainings, we will use the nourishing Womb of Winter and the renewal energies of the New Year to recognize and liberate ourselves from the patterns that do not serve us, learn ways to calm the mind and heart and to deal better with stress.
You can choose between a morning session and evening session. Evening course at ISI (on Wednesdays) is for international women residing in Berlin. Morning course (on Thursdays) at VHS-Mitte is open to all. You can complete both MBSR Trainings as Fortbildung (Professional Training).

MBSR for Migrant Women

A course for international women residing in Berlin

Description

Being a migrant woman and entrepreneur requires strength, resilience and adaptability. Migrant women have all these. Yet adapting to and surviving in a new culture and in a new business culture creates stress which might exceed the inner resources and lead at times to burnout. Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program aims to train the mind to be awake and calm, increase body awareness and provide mindful and skillful ways to deal with life’s difficulties and enjoy its everyday gifts/offerings. We will do these through movement, meditation, mini-lectures, interactive activities, home practice and sharing of our experiences in the group. Course requires commitment to attendance and to home practices, which will be interesting and joyful daily practices up to 45 min.

what happens in mbsr

In an MBSR Course, we learn in a joyful, interactive way, supported by a group:

  • What stress is (physiological mechanism of stress)
  • What triggers stress in me
  • When stressed, which thoughts, feelings arise and what do I do automatically
  • How can I learn to recognize stress, learn ways to calm my mind and body and choose to respond mindfully
  • How can I learn to take care of my mind and body and respect my limits to nourish holistic health and prevent burnout
  • How can I learn to take care of myself to nourish my positive thought, emotional and bodily habits and liberate myself from those that lead to vicious cycles

The gains are:

  • increased body awareness and body flexibility
  • focused and calmer mind
  • effective communication skills
  • improvement in perspective taking
  • learning to give love and compassion to self and others
  • learning and respecting own physical and mental boundaries
  • learning to take care of self (physically and mentally)
