A self-directed and supported online course to help you overcome stress, and lead a more productive and happy life.
Mindfulness is a secular meditation technique that involves learning to pay attention: on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally to whatever arises in the field of your experience.
Nowadays, stress is a common problem in modern life. We experience the adverse effects of stress in our body, our pulse increases and we feel the tension in our muscles. The causes of stress in modern life emerge from the many obligations we have to handle every day to the modern way of negative thinking.
Research on the impact of Mindfulness skills training on the brain demonstrates that it can reshape the part of the brain that impacts emotional and social intelligence, improving positive mood and well-being. Helping you to overcome stress and to live a richer more fulfilling life.
Mindfulness can help:
You stay focused and be calmly present, whatever the situation.
You develop a more aware and considered approach.
You improve self-leadership in times of high workload, time restraints, instability and major or constant change.
You develop a more thinking, emotional and instinctive mind.
You build emotional resilience.
The next course starts the week of 11th October 2017 and will last eight weeks.
Meditation and mindfulness have the potential to give you so much and create deep transformation in your life. It just might be the most powerful habit in your life and it's priceless.
Starting 1st Nov 2017

The Next Course Starts In
Mindfulness and meditation works by helping you be more;
Being open means learning to manage the unpleasant emotions that come with challenging situations and stress.
Being aware means stopping automatic reactions and beginning to connect with what is around you.
Being active simply means becoming clear on what matters to us most in life. And then taking conscious action.
I'm Gary and I've lived and worked in Brussels for the past 10 years.
I provide open, honest and effective coaching that helps you achieve your goals, have better professional relationships, overcome professional challenges and lead more purposeful and meaningful lives.
I coach because I enjoy helping people grow personally and professionally and I believe that it isn't about how much money I earn but how many lives I change. Coaching gives me the opportunity to change lives.
I enjoy helping people learn more about themselves and give them practical evidence-based tools to solve the problems in their life and reach thier goals.
My life was transformed by establishing a mindfulness and meditation practice. And now I want to share this gift with you.

Zaz Ventures Founder and Managing Partner
Gary got together a small group of men and for eight weeks led our meditations and discussions. We explored compassion, attention, and unconscious mental processes that guide a lot of our behaviour. These are all very personal matters, however, Gary facilitated our sharing and explorations. He is very honest with himself and it also became very natural for all of us to dig deep and find out more about ourselves in the process. We formed a strong bond, almost like an alliance. I learned, enjoyed myself, and am looking to spend more time with Gary in the future.”
