    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 Science and Practice of Open-Hearted Awareness

Meditation Workshop with Loch Kelly
Berlin, September 7 – 8, 2019

“In my many years of knowing and working with Loch Kelly I feel that he is one of the clearest expressions of authentic awakened freedom and love that I know.”
– Adyashanti, from his foreword to "Shift Into Freedom"

What if you could open into a natural flow of wisdom, compassion, and joy in any moment? This possibility is closer than you think. Loch Kelly has integrated wisdom practices, neuroscience, and psychological research to support awakening as the next natural stage of human development.
