Our Signature

Institute for Meditation offers a holistic approach to meditation. This means we don’t teach one specific method, but rather give a comprehensive perspective on the various traditions of meditation.

With this training you will be able to recognize the benefits and limitations of the different approaches to meditation. This enables you to consciously choose the right meditation techniques to fit your specific interest, purpose and audience.

In the training we will teach you to use your creativity and develop your own meditations. Share your authentic guidance with the world!

Our Approach

Beliefs and ideas about who we are can restrict us to live a free and authentic life. We experience meditation as a tool to help you see and consequently dissolve limited beliefs and ideas. This enquiry creates the space to get in touch with your intuition and live a spontaneous and joyous life. 

We experience meditation as a tool to become aware of subtle tensions in the body. With this body awareness there is an opportunity to consciously relax the body. Stretching, opening and moving the body can support relaxation in the body. When tensions in the body dissolve, you will experience a more tranquil mind.

Everybody has a unique story and outlook on life. People get enriched by opening up to each other. Our insight dialogues are the most powerful way to become aware of your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Sharing gives you the opportunity to express and acknowledge whatever is present in your life.
