In this weekly meditation session: meditations, Q & A and sound gong meditatie will alternate. This hour can be the perfect start of the week. Give your home practice a boost and be inspired by meditating in a group. It is located in a beautiful, spacious and easily accessible location in Oud-Zuid, Amsterdam.
The first half of the hour is a meditation and the second half there is room to ask questions and we will end up with the sound gong (silence). Sometimes concluded with an inspiring story, poem or quote. The meditations will be a combination of mindfulness, self-compassion and self-inquiry. It might good to know that since 2012 I give mindfulness, (self) compassion and meditation trainings.

Mindfulness Tips and Exercises – make a start now
This mini-workbook stimulates you to take the first steps in the world of mindfulness and self-compassion and helps you to bring it in to practice.
The approach of Beyond Mindfulness is based on the insights and approach of the founders of mindfulness and self-compassion in the West (Jon Kabat-Zinn and Kristin Neff) and has influences of Tibetan Buddhism and Yoga philosophy. This unique combination consists of a wide range of meditation, inspirational videos, teachings/stories, mindful movement and group discussions.
With Beyond Mindfulness I aim to make some of the wisdom of the traditional movements (i.e. Buddhism) accessible to a larger group, in order to let people experience long-term inner peace, joy and happiness. In my personal quest, Due to my curious and searching nature, I have walked various paths. I studied in Wales, I lived and worked in Tanzania and worked both in business and the mental health.
I have the ambition to make a genuine contribution so that people can act less from fear and more from love and a connection to life. With my experiences as a meditation practitioner and as a professional trainer-coach I can offer an unique combination of activities.
