FAQ

Below you can find an overview of the frequently asked questions. Is your question not listed? Please reach out to me and I will answer you as soon as possible.

Do I need any experience in meditation?

No not at all, you can participate in MBSR when you are completely new to meditation.

I have practiced Zen meditation and/or yoga and/or mantra meditation, is this the same?

No, in MBSR we practice the Vipasana Meditation, see https://www.dhamma.org/en/index for more info.

Do I need to wear special clothing: no, make sure you wear something comfortable and bring something to keep you warm, maybe an extra pair of socks or a jumper?

Meditation cushions, yoga mats & blankets are provided in the room.

Looking at the dates I will not make it to 2 or more dates, can I still join?

I recommend not to miss more than 2, this to ensure the stability of the group and of course also your own learning curve. When you know upfront, you will miss more than 1 session lets have the coffee together to see how it will impact your training.

Is this the same as Search Inside Yourself SIY?

No, SIY is an in company 2-day training which focusses on Mindfulness, Emotional Intelligence and Positive psychology. Practice is focussed mainly on ‘on the workplace’ implementation. MBSR is a personal development training which focusses on all aspects of your life which you can of course also implement on the job. The two have a different format and some overlapping themes.
