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.

I am being very aware of all my ANTs ("I cannot do this"....."My arms are too weak".... "I should have kept more fit") and judgements ("Gosh that wetsuit is revealing") plus of course my autopilot (For #&%## sake, why can't I learn to put my left foot forward first?) and caveman brain ("This is just too frustrating (and dangerous) - I should just give up and drink wine all day!). But I am persisting and remembering to be in the present moment and the B in the A+B=C. ...

“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”

Shell Outpost
