    Welcome to Arbor Seminare – Mindfulness Based Trainings, Seminars and Retreats

Since many years Arbor Seminare has been organizing mindfulness-based trainings such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) and Mindfulness with Children (AmiKi).

It is our aim to bring mindfulness to our society in a way that is both sustainable and true to life. We offer seminars, workshops and retreats in various places in the German-speaking region. We have a long standing cooperation with partner organizations in the United States – for example the Center for Mindfulness and the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion – and with meditation teachers for example from Spirit Rock Meditation Center and many others. 

The following events are a small selection from our current program. Please find the complete overview of all events taught in English under the menu item Events.

The Transformative Power of Compassion Training

Retreat with Tim Desmond
Castle Wasmuthhausen near Coburg, February 25 – March 1, 2020

Suffering, when met with compassion, can become wisdom, which leads to joy.

Grow Lasting Strengths like Gratitude, Motivation, and Self-Worth

Workshop with Rick Hanson
Freiburg (Germany), March 27–30, 2020

This experiential program is about building a strong, healthy, and happy brain.

An internal study on it found that participants learned how to turn everyday experiences into lasting inner strengths, such as resilience, self-worth, feeling loved, compassion, and happiness. This mindful internalization of psychological resources can help with anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, disappointment, loss, loneliness, and shame – and it supports well-being, effectiveness, satisfying relationships, emotional healing, and spiritual practice.
