Mindfulness & Compassion


Mindfulness results in better mental and physical health and an improvement in everyday functioning. Compassion has a positive influence on our motivation and behaviour. It helps us to deal with life’s challenges and improve our lifestyle.

The scientifically substantiated 4-day training combines knowledge of the positive effects of mindfulness and compassion on our health and employability with practical tools to strengthen the resilience of employees. Together with Dr. David Dewulf, authority in the field of mindfulness & compassion, this training has been developed for application within occupational health. Dewulf is founder of the Institute for Attention & Mindfulness (I AM) and author of the bestseller ‘Heartful life, Mindful work. Balance your life in 7 steps’ (in Dutch only).
