International Compassion Community for People who care

Our community is a gathering place for people who care. A virtual space where you can recharge and let yourself be guided and inspired by international teachers. We cultivate a quiet meeting place, interaction is optional – only if it is right for you. Here you can take a moment for yourself away from all the hectic day to day responsibilities.

Do you desire to cultivate your calm, focus, and compassion in order to be more resilient and improve your life balance? Or rather, are you in need of support and motivation to meditate regularly? Join us and see for yourself what the community can mean for you.

We are very proud to be partner of the Global Compassion Coalition and its support of our International Compassion Community.

Our mission is to make online live guided meditations accessible to everyone; regardless of personal financial situation. That is why we have chosen to also add the option for ‘free membership’.

This is only possible through the generosity of those who can afford to take out a paid membership and thus make this not-for-profit initiative sustainably possible.

We would like to ask you to take the above into account when choosing your membership.

Thank you.

    Experienced International Meditation Teachers

    Each of these evening sessions, is a new opportunity to be guided by a very experienced meditation teacher. Our teachers come from quite diverse backgrounds and the community is inclusive for all who care. The meditations are inspired by the traditional teachings and methods and are supported by modern insights from research.




    Webinars About Mindfulness and Compassion

    Every 3-4 months you are invited to attend an hour long session for free. Our internationally renowned expert will discuss the applications and recent discoveries about meditation, mindfulness, compassion, care and or (personal) leadership.

    Some of our speakers who have rallied behind our mission are: Professor Michael West (The King’s Fund), Professor Megan Reitz (Ashridge Business  School), Robert Cusick (CCARE  Stanford), Irène Bakker (Zen Master), Barbara Doeleman-van Veldhoven (founder BFC CCMM) and many more. . .

    These webinars will alternate between Dutch and English. They will also be recorded so you can watch or re-watch them at a later moment. These webinars are offered donation-based.


    Q&A with the Meditation Teacher

    Every now and then we organize a 20-minute Q&A. This session directly follows a meditation so that you can share and ask questions about your experience. These sessions will similarly alternate between Dutch and English.
