About This Event

This intensive one on one program is based on the content of the famous MBSR program – Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction. It is design to provide you with simple and effective tools that enable you to identify and assess the decisions that are shaping your reality right now.

By identifying how stress manifests in your life, personal or professional area, you can then act and learn how to respond in a more effective fashion.

Session 1 – Intro to Mindfulness

In this session you will be introduced to Mindfulness. In this session you’ll be experientially introduced to mindful eating, and the body-scan method. In order for you to be fully engaged in the present moment through the program, each session ends with mindfulness assignments to be practiced up to the next session.

Session 2 – Perception

Perception influences deeply how we see and in consequence respond to reality. In this session we will explore how perception influences patterns of behaviour, as well-paying special attention to beliefs and how they influence the decisions we make in life. Understanding the process will allow you to make changes and therefore better respond to challenging situations.

Session 3 – Emotions

You will learn how to be mindful of emotions by seeing their true nature. We will unveil the message behind each emotion you will understand the power they have in how we act and interact with what surrounds us, and boost your focus in the face of daily challenges.

Session 4 – Stress and Response to Stress

The purpose of this session is firstly to understand the mechanism of stress, and it´s short- and long-term effects on the mind-body. Secondly is to explore transformational coping strategies to broaden your inner resources and enhance your resilience through mindfulness practice.

Silent day

The intensive session is intended to give you the opportunity to directly experiences the power of Mindfulness by combining a day where you practice all the techniques learned, preparing you for integrating them beyond the conclusion of the program.

Session 5 – Communication

This session is dedicated to the concept of Mindful Communication through the practice of active listening and the exploration of three types of communication. You will be able to see that by communicating mindfully one can transform difficult situations and improve relationships.

Session 6 – Integrating Mindfulness into daily life

At the end of the program I will guide you as you design a clear and focused plan to integrate all the knowledge and mindfulness practices to improve your everyday goals and future objectives.
