1-day Intensive Mindfulness Course
Mindfulness consists of mental exercises through which attention is trained to increase the ability to create an overview and conscious presence. It is one of the most effective tools to prevent and cope with stress, worries and difficult emotions such as sadness and anger, however these are not the sole benefits of Mindfulness. When we practice Mindfulness regularly, we can achieve greater peace, energy and joy in both our private and professional lives. There is scientific evidence that Mindfulness reduces stress and difficult emotions and increases mental resilience and well-being. People practicing Mindfulness observe positive changes in their daily lives, including strengthened presence in relationships. Mindfulness also creates positive changes in brain areas related to concentration, creativity, joy and stress.

I was sceptical about Mindfulness before coming to this course, but Esen gave very clear examples and useful exercises. I feel very motivated! Thank you very much!
There was good balance between information and practice. Also Esen is friendly and very nice. I liked the way she teaches. Her answers to our questions were also very useful, they helped me get a new perspective!
I had never tried doing meditation before and I cannot believe I could sit still for 20 minutes! Thank you Esen and Mindfulness Workshops. I am impressed and looking forward to continuing with the audio files.
