What we're about

Looking to reduce your stress level? Seeking a way to find more focus & rest? Whatever the reason is you became interested in mindfulness and regardless of your experience, you're welcome to join this group.

My name is Francisco, I'm a mindfulness teacher and founder of Amsterdam Mindfulness. Curiosity towards life, that's what mindfulness is about for me. Curiosity is an attitude that creates positive energy. Curiosity helps you looking past labels and judgements. It helps to see and enjoy the richness of life.

These are the activities in this group:

1.Explore Meditation (every week, donation-based) - here we explore all kinds of meditations, like Osho-dynamic meditations.

2.Mindfulness Meditation (every week, donation-based) - here we do more 'traditional' mindfulness meditations like the bodyscan and moving meditations.

3.Starting your Mindfulness practice (every 2 weeks, 10€) - here mindfulness concepts & meditations are explained. You have the opportunity to share your experiences and possible challenges with the group.

4.Workshops about specific themes (for example self-compassion, grounding & centering, High Sensitivity, relationships).

* About me

I'm Francisco. A life long experience with restlessness and overthinking brought me to mindfulness. When I did my first 8-weeks mindfulness course, I felt frustrated and bored and thought that mindfulness is not for me. When I started doing the mindfulness teacher training however, I learned that I myself and people like me could benefit a great deal from mindfulness. I'm also a coach & psychologist. If you like to ask me something/share ideas, I would be happy to hear from you! You can reach me at francisco@amsterdam-mindfulness.nl.

Weekly Mindfulness Meditation Meetup

Amsterdam Mindfulness

Every Sunday at 13.00 you're welcome to join. This meetup is open for everyone (both advanced & complete beginners). Usually we are with a small group of 4-8 persons. The meetup takes place at my home. We'll do a few mindfulness meditations. Every week there's a certain topic, like for example self-acceptance or negative thought patterns. We can 'use' mindfulness in two ways; first of all as a way to explore our inner and outer world. For example when we try to connect to discomforting thoughts or feelings and curiously observe what is there to observe. Second, we can use mindfulness as a way to deal with things. For example when we try to simply stay with discomforting feelings. Many participants have their own regular meditation practice. This meetup can be of help to keep up with that. * Donation based Donations are welcome. A standard donation is 5 or 10 euro. If your income situation doesn't allow it, then it's also okay not to donate anything. You're the same welcome. * Who am I I'm Francisco, I'm teaching mindfulness through my school Amsterdam Mindfulness. if you like to know more about the courses & workshops I offer, check www.amsterdam-mindfulness.nl. Do you have any question or suggestion? Feel free to contact me at [masked]. I hope to see you at one of the meetups! - Francisco
