One on One  

- training in self-compassion, Mindfulness and how to Awaken Joy
Individual Training:

You may find that thoughts often take over; perhaps "worrying thoughts", and "what-if" thoughts, "what-others-might-think-about-me" or other disturbing thoughts. Maybe you are stressed, have anxiety and/or are a little harsh on yourself when you make mistakes, if you say something that you regret, etc.


Training in Mindfulness, Awakening Joy and Self-Compassion helps you:


1. to have a constructive / better relationship with your negative thoughts 

2. to treat yourself as kindly as you treat a dear friend

3. to reduce stress

Review from a One-on-One participant:

"Dorte is a warm and unpretentious person who has the ability to make meditation uncomplicated and very straightforward. For many years I have suffered from anxiety and through a course with Dorte I gained further self-insight. Through meditations with Dorte I have gained insight into how to cope with all my disturbing thoughts, learned to be more present and to find more calm " ~ Female 43 years

In the name of the daybreak
and the eyelids of morning
and the wayfaring moon
and the night when it departs,

I swear I will not dishonor
my soul with hatred,
but offer myself humbly
as a guardian of nature,
as a healer of misery,
as a messenger of wonder,
as an architect of peace.

In the name of the sun and its mirrors
and the day that embraces it
and the cloud veils drawn over it
and the uttermost night
and the male and the female
and the plants bursting with seed
and the crowning seasons
of the firefly and the apple,

I will honor all life
—wherever and in whatever form
it may dwell—on Earth my home,
and in the mansions of the stars.

School Prayer
