Since many years we have 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.


Arbor Seminare has 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. 

On this page you find all seminars, workshops and retreats offered by Arbor Seminare, that are taught in English. All events held in English will have a German translation.

Facing the mess we're in with clarity, compassion and courage

Workshop with Linda Graham
Freiburg, April 30 – May 5, 2019

Challenges and crises are part of the human condition: for ourselves, for people we care about, for our communities and for our larger world.

This workshop offers practical tools informed by modern neuroscience to strengthen our somatic, emotional, relational and reflective intelligence to deal with any disruption to coping, across the spectrum from barely a wobble, to genuine upset, to being dumped completely out of our boats.
