‘Silence is sometimes the best answer, Dalai Lama’

Calm, Compassion and Resilience

By connecting to yourself first, you become more aware, more resilient and start to live with a growth mindset. I help people develop what are often referred to as ‘soft skills’ and what I call the ‘hard skills’; (self)compassion, (self)awareness, meditation and more. 

Join me in my weekly free live online meditations. To calm ourselves and find focus and strength. To build resilience by opening our hearts and practising compassion. 

Normally, every Tuesday morning at 10:00 (AM)  I hold a 30-minute Zoom session. There will be a 15-minute meditation followed by questions as they come up. We will work with a theme that is relevant in light of what is going on in the world and in ourselves.

Because of the high frequency meditations of the Corona Compassion Community, I have temporarily stopped the Tuesday mornings. We start again in summer! 

You can sign-up in the form below and I will send you an email with the link to our weekly ZOOM sessions. 

In compassion, Barbara

The International Compassion Community
Free weekly meditation sessions

The Corona Compassion Community for Health Care in The Netherlands started as a spontaneous response to the first signs of overwhelm in out Heath Care system. To support our professionals in the front line, to invite us to draw upon our inner strength to support ourselves and each other with calm and compassion. We meditated for 78 consecutive days. Evidence based practices led by professionals, scientists, people who know what the benefits of meditation are.

In response to continuous request, we are continuing our meditations on Monday (in Dutch) and in English (on Thursday) until we find a new format where we can keep offering our daily meditations for Health Care Professionals.
