What does personal growth mean to you?

Because meditation rocks!

Topic: Personal growth

Growth by nature is an evolving process. It is not something static that we can ‘master’ once and for all. Yet this is an illusion so often perpetuated by the self-help industry.

Practice: mindfulness of breathing



What happens during the 1h15min urban meditation class?

What type of meditation is taught? What if I already have my own way of practicing meditation?
We practice Mindfulness Meditation, mainly mindfulness of breathing. The main purpose of this meditation is to refine and balance the attention and calm the mind. That is why it is usually considered a first step into the meditative path. This meditation does not interfere with any other practice. The class is suitable for all levels.

Do I need special clothing?
No. Wear simply some comfortable clothing. Chairs are available but also mats, cushions, benches.

Are you certified as a meditation teacher?
I am certified as a Mindfulness Meditation teacher, by Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies. I was taught by B Alan Wallace, Phd and Paul Ekman, Phd. I am also an MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) teacher, certified by the Institute for Mindfulness Based Approaches (IMA). I have an educational background as a psychologist, with interest in brain and mind interventions and have a regular meditation practice. I offer services for individuals, organizations and community at large.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for a great meditation class this evening!

    As promised here is the Study from the Max Planck Institute for
    Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences that reveal our decisions are made approx 7 seconds before we become aware of them. In other words decisions are made by the "unconscious me" 7 seconds before the "conscious me".

    I recommend watching the short video on this study bottom of the page.
