The art of being present

15.01.2024 - 11.02.2024


Learning outcomes:  The student knows how to

  • maintain one’s attention and awareness centred on the present moment
  • observe the experience with a non-judgmental attitude
  • develop metacognitive awareness of sensations and thoughts
  • develop an ability to switch from one aspect to another flexibly intentionally


In this course, the student learns how to maintain attention and awareness in the present moment, observe experiences with a non-judgmental attitude and develop awareness of sensations and thoughts.

Students will create daily routines, integrating mindful living in their daily life.


The course doesn’t require prior knowledge or experience in mindfulness. We recommend to enroll to the course “The art of leading yourself” to get the optimal experiences and results.
