Act mindful

Academy for mindful action on the Stober estate

"There is no meaning in life, but meaning in life", in one's own life.

The academy idea on the Stober estate has been virulent for more than ten years. Initially intended as a mindfulness academy for junior executives and burn-out managers under university leadership, the direction expanded to include "mindfulness" and also the healing power of music, finally culminating in the academy for mindful action on the Stober estate.

It's an inspiring, authentic place with history and a positive spirit. A place that invigorates the senses. The park by the lake, old trees, 300 pairs of swallows, nature to breathe deeply meets people with inner and outer stress.

The academy offers offers for people. For people who are searching, who doubt, who sometimes despair, for lovers and for those who are not yet in love. For the lonely, the hearing and the deaf, the seeing and the blind, the feeling. Easy for everyone who is on the way. And that in a place that stands for respect for everyone, for the recognition of the dignity of every life or way of life, for solidarity and empathy of every individual...

There is not the meaning of life, but the meaning in life, says Viktor Frankl rightly. Everyone is responsible for the meaning of their life. But the path is sometimes blocked or we don't see it and that's exactly where the academy comes in with its offers

No matter how bad or how good we are, every morning the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. And in spring everything grows and thrives, in autumn it loses its leaves and in spring it begins again - and not because we humans are there, but despite it. By becoming aware of such things, dignity, respect, humility, empathy, and awareness return to us, and we feel genuine happiness, love, and well-being. We support and accompany this with our offers at the academy: from people for people, for private individuals to companies.

"We are just visitors on this planet. We may not have been here more than 90 or 100 years. During this time we should do something good and useful. If we contribute to the happiness of others, then we have recognized the meaning of life." Dalai Lama

Presentation of the coaches and seminars

Know yourself - seminar for personal development

Know thyself - is a much-quoted inscription on the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. The visitor was supposed to solve his problems and questions by coming to terms with his inner personality. The realization of one's inner life served to solve problems with the outer world. Know yourself - because it is not conformity to external norms that counts, but only the inner attitude that guides your own actions. We humans are only free when we explore ourselves... more info

Live mindfully for your grandchildren - become aware of the ecological footprint

Climate change, species extinction and growing social inequality describe the social challenges of our time. We don't want to let all this happen to us without doing anything. What can we do specifically to increase our resilience to these challenges? In the "Grandchild-friendly living" workshop, participants can work together on questions that arise. They are guided by the seminar leader in a creative process to develop solutions. It is important to get into action, regardless of whether it is a very small or even a large project. Everyone gains motivation from the ideas of the other seminar participants. In this way, they gain many ideas for their own projects and tips for practical application. The aim is for participants to support each other in implementing their plans for more grandchild-friendly living or even to form networks ... more info

For whom? Privately interested, from twelve to twenty-four people.
