What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is fitness for the mind: you train awareness and concentration. Want to live life easier? Learn to cope with stress, worries and perfectionism? Mindfulness might help. By learning to be in the moment, you start to look at things differently. You experience less pressure, more resilience, and freedom.

Your Mindfulness options at USC

8-weeks Mindfulness course (MBSR)

  • The course consists of 8 classes of 2,5 hours and 1 silent meditation day of 4 hours.
  • 4 times per year, in Dutch and English!
  • This is the original MBSR (mindfulness based stress reduction) course, including a workbook and audio clips to practice at home.
  • You will have to do an intake with the teacher prior to your registration. Sign up for an intake.
  • If you have Dutch health insurance with an additional package, you might get some form of compensation for the costs of the mindfulness course (MBSR).

Several scientific studies have shown that a practicing period of just 8 weeks is long enough for lasting effects!

  • Concentrating more easily and getting less distracted
  • Better stress tolerance
