Mindfulness training (MBSR/MBCT) English – Delft

Starting in January, 2019, I will be offering the 8-week mindfulness training (MBSR / MBCT) in English in Delft (The Netherlands).

Mindfulness is a evidence-based programm, that can help prevent complaints in the field of:

  • stress and burn-out;
  • anxiety and depression;
  • sleep deprivation.

In 8 weeks time you will be more happy with yourself and your life!


I am Esther Hasselman, mindfulness trainer since 2011 and certified by the professional association VMBN, cat. 1 (which means a lot of health insurance companies refund part of the mindfulness training fee*).

My mindfulness teacher training has largely been in English, and even part of the books I have read about mindfulness were in English, and have not been translated into my mother tongue (Dutch). I have been taught in English in real live by (among others):

  • Mark Williams
  • Trish Bartley
  • Christina Feldman
  • John Peacock
  • Thich Nhat Hanh
  • Shaila Catherine
  • Lawrence J. Ladden
  • Susan Gillis Chapman
  • Kristin Neff
  • Christopher Germer

*) Please contact your health insurance provider to ask about their refunds and regulations; mindfulness is a specific item on the list, in the prevention category.

During the 8-week course in English, I use of the book by Mark Williams and Danny Penman.

You can pre-order this book, e.g. at bol.com.
