Do you recognize any of this:

You regularly feel overwhelmed, stressed or busy
When you want to concentrate you get easily distracted
At the end of the day, your to-do list is even longer…
You are sometimes impatient and loose emotional stability when you don’t want to
You don’t have enough time and energy for yourself and loved ones

What to do?

How much longer do you want to keep up with this? You already know that you are tired of being tired. That if only you had a little more time and headspace, you would be more effective, like yourself better and be a better spouse, parent, friend, colleague etc.
Chronic stress effects your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Are your ready to break this pattern?
Do you really want to do it differently now?
Will you step into your own leadership?



This program is also for when you feel quit good and just want to know more about how to thrive as a human being!

Who should attend this Search Inside Yourself program?

People join Search Inside Yourself programs for many reasons, including personal development and experiencing SIY before bringing it to their company. Consultants, coaches and therapists also enroll in SIY to evaluate how to adopt the principles in their own work. Some attendees are new to mindfulness and meditation, while others are longtime practitioners. This program is for both beginners and advanced practitioners.

What should I expect at this Search Inside Yourself program?

This SIY is an interactive two-day, online training, followed by four weeks of online challenge and recommended peer-to-peer practices to sustain and integrate learning and self-directed growth from the inside out. SIY includes sessions on mindfulness (the science of being present), self-awareness (understanding your thoughts, emotions and habits), self-management (skillfully managing impulses and reactions), motivation (aligning your values and work), empathy (understanding others’ feelings and experiences) and leadership (influencing with compassion).

The Search Inside Yourself Program in 5 Steps

Step 1: Pre-Assessment

As a first step in the Search Inside Yourself program, you will receive a short, clear survey with concrete questions in the field of mindfulness and emotional intelligence. With your answers we will make pre-measurements of your personal score and a group overview.

Step 2: Two-day Online Training

On the online training days we come together via Zoom. These moments are highly interactive and experience oriented. About 1/3 consists of theory and 2/3 is about self-exploration, exercises and application, so that SIY is a transformational experience for you. We expect that you have your video and sound ON.

Step 3: 28-day Online Challenge

Right after the online training days we step into a 28-day online challenge together. You now have a lot of practical information and exercises, but this will only be of benefit for you when you really integrate this in your daily life. In these 28 days we will help you apply what you have learned. Through daily reminders and concrete and practical exercises you will quickly notice benefits and results.

Step 4: Post-Assessment

After the 28 day challenge, we will share a second survey with you. By comparing your answers with your previous answers, we can measure your personal growth domains. This also allows us to make a summary for the group. To measure is to know!

Step 5: Closing Webinar

To close the Search Inside Yourself program, we come together one more time in an online setting. We will share experiences, answer questions and provide you with practical tips and tools to maintain your mindfulness and emotional intelligence. We will give you new tools to strengthen these skills even more. We will make sure that this Search Inside Yourself program is a truly sustainable change for you.

As an advocate of the diversity and inclusion movement, I have been asking how someone could realize that they have an unconscious bias toward certain groups and how to get rid of the bias: I found the answer in this course.

Soh Ling Loke
