Mindfulness through Mental Training
More focus – less stress – maximum benefit
|“For most people nowadays, it is a natural thing to train your body and your muscles several times a week – but when will you start taking yourself seriously and train your brain, which is without doubt the part of your body with the largest unutilised potential?”|
In a world where optimisation of your performance and productivity has become everybody’s project, we often pay a high price in the form of added stress and the pressure of expectations.
Your brain is overloaded with this kind of pressure on a daily basis, and you may even be experiencing racing thoughts, worries and a lack of focus.
Simple techniques to finding inner peace in a busy everyday life can therefore be your first and most important step towards more focus and less stress.
Mindfulness has a documented effect, and yet it is merely the first step of this training process, where it is our ambition for you to benefit maximally from your efforts.
Mental training is a new discipline in a work context. The discipline originates in the world of sports, where mental training is used when high-performance athletes wish to become the best of the best.
Mental training is a unique concept that paves the way directly to your subconscious mind, thereby allowing you to work in a focused way on what you want without spending unnecessary energy doing so.
Hence, mental training is the strongest tool on the market for discovering the unsuspected, subconscious resource inherent in all of us, but which is often blurred by the demands and often hectic nature of reality.
Mental training is hence an active and creative process that takes place in a state of total mental relaxedness where our noisy consciousness has been put on hold.
This course is aimed at individuals who are managers or employees and who wish to learn simple techniques for quickly finding inner peace in any place and at any time. You also want to learn a number of effective and simple tools to help you discover your subconscious resources at any time after the training so that you can apply them for reaching your goals, increasing your performance, solving your problems, achieving greater job satisfaction and increased self-worth, producing better presentations, and much more.
Perhaps you know the feeling of having participated in an extremely inspiring course, only to find that, after two weeks, your new thoughts and intentions have been overwhelmed by reality and old habits?
Mindfulness through Mental Training is constructed in such a way that your development is retained over time and thereby also works long-term – the only requirement is that you take yourself seriously and invest 15 minutes per day during the course of the training.
Is your well-being worth it?
You will learn:
- About the immense potential of the brain and how to take control of it so that it works for you, rather than against you.
- How to achieve an increased awareness of yourself and your possibilities.
- How to experience personal development where you need it.
- To see your personal and professional goals clearly.
- How to change goals to strong images of goals and thus to fulfil them faster than you thought possible.
- To take charge of your thoughts rather than the other way around.
- To be happier and more content with yourself and your life.
Your company will gain:
- An employee with increased focus and well-being.
- An employee who has found a space within him or herself with unrestricted access to problem-solving, creativity and innovative energy.
- An employee who is more relaxed on a day-to-day basis and who is thus much better at withstanding stress.
In addition, it is a documented fact that regular mental training can reduce your biological age by seven years, and, at the same time, mindfulness/mental training contributes to producing additional myelin* in your brain – so why not enjoy the benefits of that, too?
(*Myelin is a miracle substance that strengthens the brain’s compounds, increases your learning capacity and reduces the risk of depression, Alzheimer’s disease, and more.)
In addition to a compendium that is designed to support your development throughout the course, you will receive, on an ongoing basis, audio files containing guided exercises, which you can play on your computer or MP3 for daily practice.
Form and content
Theoretical frame of reference
Mindfulness is originally part of a well-proven Buddhist form of meditation, which, in its new form, has achieved great international success. The mental training method that we use during the course was developed by the Swedish scientist and psychologist Lars-Eric Uhnestål, and consists of training and exercises that are based on his material.
Spanning five months, this course begins with a one-day fundamental introduction to mindfulness and mental training followed by a half day once a month for four months.
Mindfulness through Mental Training is divided into a number of elements that build on one another. Each element requires approximately one month’s practical training with merely a 15-minute daily effort to ensure optimal integration into your daily life. The course takes this into account.
The course mixes theory and exercises but focuses on practice to enable you to train mentally after the course.
Internationally certified ICC Coach Trainer and Mental Trainer Jørgen Svenstrup.
Jørgen Svenstrup is an in-demand trainer and keynote speaker on the international coaching stage who is deeply absorbed in developing and facilitating the personal learning process, which, according to Jørgen, should be a prerequisite for supporting others in their development without risking standing in the way yourself.
This exploration has resulted in a unique learning process (PISAL), which ensures ICC course participants worldwide, and thus also Mannaz’ course participants, are competent in several crucial parameters. The changes are long-lasting due to entrenched learning and positive changes that are implemented directly into each individual’s behaviour.
Jørgen Svenstrup is on the ICC’s Board of Directors and chairs the workgroup that aims at disseminating process-orientated inductive state-bound action learning (PISAL) to ICC trainers around the world.
