Autumn 2022 Trainings

MBSR: Mindfulness based stress reduction program 

Autumn is the season to harvest the fruits of our labor of last year and start letting go.. Trees shed their leaves and start pulling all their energy inward. Winter is the time to go fully in, reflect, contemplate, and gather energy for the rebirth in Spring. 
In our upcoming trainings, we will use these energies of Autumn and Winter to recognize and let go of the patterns that do not serve us and learn ways to calm the mind and heart and to deal better with stress.
You can complete both MBSR Training and the One Day Retreat as Fortbildung (Professional Training). VHS will provide Certificate of Attendance. 
Come join us!

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)
