Thriving Life

To us, thriving is to feel whole and content no matter the ups and downs of life. It’s about having the knowledge and skills to take care of yourself, create balance and find meaning in what you do. A thriving life is not a life of seeking pleasure but to find a lasting sense of ease and aliveness.

Thriving Work

Mindfulness has become one of the key skills for organisations in the 21st century. By teaching you mindfulness skills we can help you cope with stress, give you the tools to perform, communicate, lead and collaborate more effectively and generally improve your well-being.

Thriving Teen

As a teen, your brain is going through a huge restructuring. This makes adolescence the ideal time to establish healthy habits and behaviours that support you throughout your life. By learning and practicing mindfulness you can literally shape the brain to become more present, kinder, happier and resilient.

Said by Linda Lantieri, who is one of the experts on SEL. ...

Such clever insights in this interview, which is part of day one in Mindful Education Summit. But hurry, it is only available for 48 hours. ...

“Berit was excellent. Her calm manner and professionalism won over the severest cynic (i.e. me). Her soothing voice, sense of humour and openmindedness all stood out. She persuaded me of the need to do more mindfulness. It was an inspiring, bonding and fun experience” 


Participant at a corporate mindfulness training and teambuilding event

“Berit delivered two workshop sessions for Shell Outpost where she gave a solid understanding of mindfulness and how to practice it through exercises. It has been a pleasure working with Berit and we can recommend her as a speaker and teacher of mindfulness.”

Shell Outpost

“Berit and Tuire came to our office to introduce us to mindfulness. This moving intro inspired more than half of the participants to sign up for the eight-week MBSR course given by Berit. (…) the course was a success for our organisation. This was a good first dive into the world of mindfulness, and we are planning to continue our relationship with Thriving Life.
