Workshop Mindfulness

Care4Minds is an international initiative led by three passionate, experienced healthcare professionals and researchers. We bring expertise in stressmanagement and resilience from very early childhood to adulthood for individuals and families, covering both medical and academic fields. Our mission is to bridge the gap by making scientific knowledge accessible for practical use by stimulating your curiosity, promoting awareness, allowing for (re)connection with yourself and others and creating space to experience.

What to Expect

During the intro workshop, you'll get insights into the science behind stress and mindfulness. But you'll also dive into practical experiences that you can apply in your daily life immediately.


The workshop is led by Esther van Duin and/or Sasja Duijff.


The exact content and focus of each workshop or training depends on the specific needs and questions of the attendees. We're happy to discuss this with you in more detail.

Workshop Mindful met je baby

Get a Taste of 'Mindful with Your Baby' Training The workshop is open to all parents who want to explore what mindfulness can mean in interacting with your baby. It's also for those who have participated before and are looking for a refresher on practicing mindfulness with their child.

What You'll Experience

The workshop focuses on how to be present for yourself while caring for your baby, both in calm and challenging moments. We'll practice recognizing your baby's signals. The session mixes meditations with educational insights about babyhood and shared experiences. There's a self-focused meditation you'll do in the presence of your baby or toddler, as well as an 'observational meditation' to practice seeing your child with an open gaze.

Workshop Mindful ouderschap van een kind met een chronische aandoening en/ of syndroom

Handling Chronic Conditions and Developmental Disorders

If your child is born with a chronic condition, syndrome, or developmental disorder, it often demands a lot from you as a parent. This is especially true if hospital visits are frequent, involving tests, blood draws, or surgeries. The workshop addresses how to manage all these extra responsibilities, not just for the child who needs medical attention but also for the rest of the family. It also looks at self-care for you as a caregiver.

Who is it for?

This workshop is geared towards parents, caregivers, and grandparents who have a child aged 0-24 with a chronic condition, developmental disorder, or syndrome and are seeking more balance in their caregiving roles. You'll get a taste of the practical exercises included.


The workshop is led by Esther van Duin and Sasja Duijff.
