Beyond Mindfulness (meditation Amsterdam) offers various mindfulness-meditation trajectories. In English you can follow this mostly on individual basis, in mindfulness, stress and burn-out coaching and/or more holistic life-coaching. My way of coaching is characterized by a pragmatic, in-depth and solution-oriented approach; it facilitates you to really cope better with anxiety, stress, perfectionism and our inner critics. And maybe even more important, to really take leadership of your own (working) life.
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 and for more then 10 years i have facilitated many enterpreneurs, managers and other people within and outside the business world.
In recent years I gave mindfulness at the workplace trainings and individual trajectories for various organisations: Expereo, DSM, Vesteda, yoga studio Yagoy and Hogeschool Inholland and more. In 2021 i completed my in-depth workplace mindfulness education too. So i am ready and eager to apply this knowledge to you and/or your organisation.
Expats & internationals
I love to work with international people (expats), as i lived and worked abroad for quite some time myself. I studied in the UK, i did my internship in Kosovo and as a business consultant and trainer i worked and lived in Eastern-Africa. These experiences were livechanging and widened my view on life. It feels like such a previlige and joy to have been able to do that.

Marc’s coaching has been extremely valuable to me. I have followed a 1 on 1 coaching trajectory and have experienced his coaching as very pleasant and instructive. He listens well and introduces you to meditation and mindfulness in a way that suits you. I can recommend it to anyone who is interested in mindfulness and wants to learn more about it!
APPROACH MEDITATION AMSTERDAM
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.
For +10 years I have been coaching and guiding people in life issues, in the career field and in dealing with stress, anxieties and burnout. More and more I see that the biggest obstacle, in almost all issues, is fear. We prefer to run away from it, avoid and deny it, but if we look closely it is the driving force behind many problems: perfectionism, pleasing, lack of self-confidence, rigidness (controlling), difficulties making choices and being allowed to be ourselves,under achieving at work and difficulties in setting boundaries. During the meditation Amsterdam coaching you learn to breaks through these selfset limitations and get more out of your self, work and private life.
My approach in coaching is solution-orientated, non-judgemental, pracmatic, deepening and applicable in your day-to-day (work) life. Recently i am very inspired by the IFS approach.
Inner Family Systems is a new way of understanding and harmonizing the mind and our (internal) human systems. Inner Family Systems (IFS) is a powerful, science-based, transformative, direct and refreshing approach. In which the mind is seen as multiple and that that is good. Our inner parts contain valuable qualities and our core Self knows how to heal them, allowing us to become integrated, free, authentic and whole.
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.
