AIIC Belgium: Seminar on mindfulness for interpreters Permalink

Discovering Mindfulness - a workshop for interpreters with Gael Sanchez.

Mindfulness is a practice that cultivates a state of active, non-judgemental attention on the present moment. Mindfulness as we know it today was developed and first used in the late 1970s at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and has since then helped thousands improve their mental and physical well-being.

In this workshop you will discover how mindfulness can help you, among other things:

  • reduce stress, anxiety and irritability
  • avoid burn-out and improve your overall health
  • respond as opposed to react to stressful situations so that you will feel calmer and more focused
  • improve working memory, attention span and stamina...yes, also in the booth !
  • reduce mental chatter to find more inner peace
  • deal better with difficult emotions and feelings
  • and, why not, enjoy life more fully by being more present to it

Special attention will be given to how stress functions, what its effects are and how mindfulness can help you deal with it.

The workshop will be conducted in English and will have a strong experiential focus. You will learn practical exercises that you will be able to start using immediately in your - often very busy - life.

We look forward to seeing you!
