  • Maitreya Instituut 109 Hoofdweg Loenen, GE, 7371 GE Netherlands (map)

The 16 Guidelines workshop provides practical tools for a more meaningful, fulfilled life. The idea is simple: to change the way we experience the world, we transform the way we think, act, and relate to others to find meaning.

What to expect

This 2-day Level 1 will explore key attitudes for developing a mindful culture in our family and community, in education, healthcare, or business. The focus will be on mindfulness, enquiry and ethics using the 16 Guidelines (16G) which provide a framework for reflecting on the ways we think, speak, act and find meaning in life.

Learn how to:

·Increase emotional resilience and confidence

·Improve relationships

·Achieve a greater sense of well-being and purpose

16 Leidraden: Wijze lessen voor een gelukkiger leven

Deze ervaringsgerichte 2-daagse workshop helpt je een nieuwe wending te geven aan de manier waarop je denkt, handelt, je verhoudt tot anderen en zin geeft aan je leven. De 16L tools zijn gericht op het bevorderen van ons mentale welzijn, het ontwikkelen van emotionele veerkracht en het werken aan positieve relaties. We reflecteren op vragen zoals: Hoe ga ik om met uitdagende situaties of mensen in mijn leven? Welke kwaliteiten kan ik verder ontwikkelen? Wat is mijn kompas voor een gelukkig leven?


Silvie en Fui Moy zijn beiden door FDCW geaccrediteerde 16L trainers en tevens gecertificeerde mindfulness trainers.
