Präsenz-Workshop: Mindful of your headspace: Discover the benefits of mindfulness meditation

If you are looking for an effective method to deal with stress, whether in everyday life, in your studies, at work or in your relationships, and if you are also interested in increasing your self-awareness, this workshop is the right first step!

The techniques that you are introduced to in this workshop will support you in cultivating mindfulness - and thus help you create more spaciousness in your mind and around any body sensations.

Mindfulness is the ability to consciously direct and shift our focus and therefore not get stuck so easily or for so long, to always begin again and to meet with curiosity and interest what is alive in and around us in every new moment.

Mindfulness allows us to be more at peace with things that cannot be changed.

And mindfulness practice gives us the (head-) space we need to take alternative perspectives, perspectives that are more helpful and solution-focused.

Like the surfer who can only remain steady when he lifts his gaze from the wobbly board to the horizon and the direction in which he wants to ride.
