What is mindfulness meditation?

A meditation for cultivating benevolence and kindness

I also started my journey on insight timer, where I will be sharing interviews, talks and meditations:

Olga started meditating at the same time as conducting scientific research on meditation in 2007/2008. Since then, Olga has a stable meditation practice, including regular silent retreats of up to 6 weeks. The meditation teachers who most influenced her are Joseph Goldstein, Sharon Salzberg, Tara Brach, Jack Kornfield, Guy Armstrong, Carol Wilson, Catherine Felder, and Reli Ellett. Olga is immensely grateful to be part of flourishing and supportive communities of fellow practitioners and meditation teachers.

Olga’s scientific research has revealed that meditation training has a positive impact on emotional well-being, brain plasticity, healthy ageing, the promotion of prosocial behaviour and conflict resolution. These scientific findings go hand in hand with Olga’s own experience of the beneficial effects (and limits) of meditation practice.

To share meditation practices, Olga is currently taking the mindfulness meditation teacher certification program with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach at the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California at Berkeley, USA. She has been teaching meditation since 2021, including 3-month courses, half-day retreats, and weekly drop-ins.

Here are offers for German courses by Manuela Tobias, who I can highly recommend:
