Mindfulness at the workplace
Stress is our biggest occupational disease, with half of the employees suffering from physical problems due to stress, a third having difficulties in letting go of work in evenings and one out of ten has Burn-out symptoms. This is unsustainable and mindfulness at the workplace (meditation) offers a powerful way out.
Therefore it is not surprising that more and more organizations are drawn by its results of lowering stress, increasing empathy, creativity, psychological flexibility and joy and enables more aware choices. Moreover mindfulness at work has proven to increase concentration and effectiveness on the work floor.

The strength of Beyond Mindfulness
The different mindfulness techniques of Beyond Mindfulness facilitate you to really apply in your daily (work) life. The approach is down-to-earth, practical but without losing any depth. I have been working as a mindfulness trainer for almost 9 years, I have worked in business for many years and trained people from all layers of an organization.
In recent years I gave mindfulness at the workplace trainings for various organisations: Expereo, DSM, Vesteda, yoga studio Yagoy and Hogeschool Inholland. In 2021 i completed my in-depth education for mindfulness at the workplace too. So i am ready and eager to apply this knowledge to your organisation.
This training is also offered in Dutch, read more here. Want to know more how it can work for you and your organization? Do you have questions about a possible trajectory? Simply request an introductory meeting by calling me or by sending an email. Often the starting point is an one hour introduction session and then, if it was satisfactory, a more comprehensive program can be made and tailored to the needs of your organization.
"The mind is just like a muscle - the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets and the more it can expand."
“The calm and open attitude that Marc adopts ensures that you quickly feel at ease. He knows how to make a good assessment of the audience and, with a down-to-earth attitude, he was able to let many people in our office experience the value of mindfulness.”
Unlike most mindfulness teaching approaches, the Mindfulness at the workplace training is an evidence formed approach to teaching mindfulness specifically developed for the workplace.
This workplace helps employees to develop mindfulness skills over a six week period. Employees attend a one hour and fifteen training session each week delivered by a Workplace Mindfulness trainer (Marc Keller) on client premises. Each week they learn new techniques to improve productivity, leadership, well-being and resilience, which they then practice each day and apply to their work.
Workplace mindfulness is based on a ‘light’ version of MBCT mindfulness teaching. It was adapted for the workplace by the Mindfulness Exchange, and then adapted and refined over a two year period. Workplace mindfulness is the product of four years of development of experience in HR, learning design, Change and Leadership Development.
My experiences as a meditation practitioner and trainer-coach means that with Beyond Mindfulness I can offer a strong combination of group and individual trajectories. 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 awareness and a connection to life.
