< My journey of Mindfulness >

When I was introduced to the concept of Mindfulness in 2009, I attended the 
8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program (MBSR), which gave me valuable insight into my own ‘patterns’ and ‘autopilot’. As an ambitious mother, I was struggling, like many of us, to keep all the balls in the air. My mind prevented me from finding the right work-life balance. As a result, I found myself striving and judging all the time. 

As practising Mindfulness became more and more important to me, I decided to follow the teacher training in 2017. From the first day, I arrived at Mindful Academy Solterreno, I soon felt it was the right decision. 
While staying in the peaceful countryside in the South East of Spain, I had the opportunity to learn from the inside out. Looking at myself as a very privileged person and being very thankful to have been taught by Bodhin Woodward, who made the experience so much vivid, safe, comprehensive and connected. During the last 18 months, I managed to cultivate, embody and breathe ‘Mindfulness’. For me, it is a journey in which I have learned so much, both professionally and personally. And the journey does not end. In fact, it has just started, and it will continue, as a way of living.

I’m very proud to announce that after 200 hours intensive practice I’m a certified & qualified Mindfulness MBSR teacher. And I would love to ‘treat’ others to experience the awareness of acknowledging the magic moments in life, the pleasant and the unpleasant. It’s the full Catastrophe.

From the TT2 Online in July 2020

It was such a rich and very well structured program. I was a little concerned about a week-long Online program however it met my expectations far better.

TT1 Online, June 2020

MBSR TT1 has been the most experiential and active learning course for me. I feel this programme includes ancient wisdom in scientific format and highly recommend to anyone looking to teach MBSR. Bodhin is a very dedicated teacher and his presence was felt throughout.

TT1 Online, June 2020

The course was substantial on multiple levels. The instructors were excellent and performed in an exemplary way. Even if I decided not to teach, what I took from this course will benefit me and others for the rest of my life. However, this course has inspired me to continue the pursuit of…
