Welcome to the podcast, in which we discuss mindfulness, meditation and Buddhism. 

Are you engaged in mindfulness or another form of meditation and do you want to be further inspired in this? Or maybe you want to know more about the source of mindfulness and Buddhism? Then move on! Modern mindfulness training uses ancient techniques and insights from Buddhism. They still prove to be relevant and supportive to our modern lives. Like the Buddhist teachings, you are not asked to believe anything. But let yourself be included in the conversations and pick out what you can use.

At the same time, money should never be a barrier to participation. That is why:
If it is not possible to pay the Membership base amount or a course participation fee, please contact contact us so that we can come to a suitable appointment for you.

One of the biggest obstacles people face when they first start meditating is the time it takes. There is no definite answer to the question of how long one should meditate to experience the benefits of this practice. The length of the meditation is important, but so is the quality of the meditation. Meditating for 30 minutes with constant interruptions and distractions can have the same effect as meditating for 10 minutes without distractions.

With 30NOW we choose 15 minutes because this offers enough time to take you along quietly into the topic of the day, to introduce the meditation, to experience the power of meditation yourself and to close it quietly. In addition, 15 minutes reasonably fits into any agenda.

Reactions during Live Lectures and Live Meditations are limited visibility.

If you have a Membership, you have the option, among other things, to respond to Live sessions with images afterwards.
More information about the Membership can be found here .

30NOW is structured in such a way that you gradually deepen your knowledge and experience. There is something different about content every day. In order not to miss out on valuable information and techniques, we recommend that you participate every day. If, despite your determination, you have had to miss a Day Meditation, we recommend that you listen to the Day Meditation again the following day. Every Day Meditation is during the 30 Days program 48 hours available. Immediately Membership you can listen to all meditations without limitation.

The substantive line that we at 30NOW Following is a contemporary approach to Buddhist meditation. Central is the practice of mindfulness or attention: an acknowledging awareness of physical and mental experiences. Although there are differences in styles and content of the meditations offered, they all align with the principle of mindfulness. Meditations are also offered that can develop other qualities such as calmness, kindness and compassion.
