Meditation course (EN)

From to

Start off the spring season with a meditation course

The Meditation Lab offers yet another round of meditation courses. Would you like to learn how to meditate?  Would you like to get more regularity in meditating, and build a routine? Would you like to get to know other students who also meditate and inspire each other? Then this course might be for you.

The course consists of four live meetings on Tuesday afternoons.  You will also receive 10-20 minute exercises to do daily at home. Each meeting focuses on a different theme so that different aspects of meditation are addressed. The course is guided by Nynke Okma and Jacky Limvers, who both have long experience in Zen and insight meditation.

All meetings are on Thursdays from 17.15 - 18.30 in the Hijmans van der Berghgebouw room 2.79. The language of instruction is English.


  • 26 March: What is meditation? Attention to the body and breathing
  • 2 April: Dealing with thoughts and discomforts
  • 16 April: What is conducive to your meditation
  • 23 April: Open attention and focus on the observer

This is free of charge, but we do expect you to attend all times and practice at home in between.

Our no-show policy
We are happy to offer workshops for free to all Utrecht University students. However: free of charge does not mean free of responsibility. Our activities tend to be fully booked well in advance. For every late cancellation or no-show we have had to disappoint students who would have liked to attend. This is how we work: 

  • Once you have signed up for a workshop, we expect you to attend;
  • If you need to cancel your registration, do so at the earliest possible moment, at least 24 hours before the workshop.

If you have any questions, please email Jacky Limvers, or Nynke Okma,
