As an extra, you will be taught specific mindfulness techniques during this course that are not taught anywhere else. They are the latest techniques in the field of mindfulness and they are very effective. With these three codes of mindfulness as well as the basics you will deal with your thoughts and emotions differently and you will learn to connect with your body, so that you can experience a higher degree of relaxation.

ONLINE SESSIONS ON ZOOM

After you signed up, we will send you a link via Zoom so you can join the online course.

WHAT WILL YOU ACHIEVE?

After this course you will be able to calm your thoughts and stop the thinking when your thoughts take the upper hand in stressful situations. You are also able to regulate your emotions much better.

It is important to control our emotions. Especially if we find ourselves in uncertain periods or moments when strong emotions such as anger, fear or frustration emerge.

Mindfulness is not about wanting to continuously stay in a kind of happy state. It’s about staying in the present moment where you can learn to accept every situation, regardless of whether it is negative or positive. Once you have mastered that by applying the right techniques, you have learned something for the rest of your life.

Niels de Stürler Boekwijt is the founder of the Inner Mind Institute. While currently living as a monk, Master Niels guides retreats in Thailand, organized by the Inner Mind Institute.

Since 2010 Master Niels traveled multiple times to Thailand to expand his knowledge about mindfulness, eventually becoming a monk for the first time in 2015. This year, in 2020, Master Niels will live as a monk for one full year. His ultimate goal is to find enlightenment and to spread his knowledge to his students.

In the Netherlands Niels works as an osteopath, treating people in the Inner Mind Center in Oegstgeest and he organizes mindfulness courses and retreats in The Netherlands and Thailand.

You can learn more about Master Niels in the documentary The White Monk. The documentary is to be released later this year. Subscribe to the newsletter to receive updates about the documentary and it’s release date.
