Meditation workshops

Every few weeks we organise workshops. They are an ideal introduction about what meditation is and how to begin meditating for people that have no or little experience with it. For people that are already experienced in meditation, it is a great way to deepen your practice or give it a fresh new start.Let us know if you want to be updated about our next workshop at roel@sento.nl.

Our approach is concrete, accessible and contemporary, completely in line with the situation and challenges of modern society. All trainings are in Dutch, unless we have English speaking participants and then they will be given in English. Registration is compulsory and can be done through the front desk at Sento or at roel@sento.nl. If you have any questions, let us know at roel@sento.nl!

 

What is meditation?
Meditation is a concrete and scientifically supported method to achieve optimal mental functioning. It is being used in the corporate world (companies like Google, Apple and Twitter have meditation trainers within their company), top level sport (think of Kobe Bryant and Novak Djokovic) and the elite units of the army, to come to more effective functioning and better achievements under pressure. It is also a very effective means to deal with stress and reduce burn-out problems. Meditation is nothing religious or airy-fairy and also isn’t to stop thinking or ‘empty the mind’, this is often assumed. It is a concrete training of the mind and does for the mind what sport does for the body: it makes it stronger, more flexible and fitter.
Regular practice brings you a more optimal mental functioning and allows you to be able to relax in a better, deeper way. No luxury in our busy modern society.
Meditation has a wide range of effects, supported by modern scientific research. Some of these are:

  • Decrease of stress and increase of stress resistance
  • Decrease of fatigue and increase of energy level
  • Decrease of symptoms of many health problems and increase of the functioning of the immune system
  • Slowing down the aging process of body cells and optimisation of body balance

After four to eight weeks of meditation there are even measurable structural changes in the brain. MRI scans have shown positive changes in regions connected to stress reduction, learning, memory, emotion regulation and being able to see things in a broader perspective and more.
