Exploring Happiness

In Exploring Happiness, we will continue to explore the topics which were touched upon in  Science of Happiness course. 

Happiness Unveiled

We’ll help you understand what happiness means and how you can make it a part of your life.


How to

Learn ways to increase mindfulness, awareness, being grateful and happy in your life.


Did you know that happiness is a skill?

In this course, we examine which factors give our lives meaning and make us happy.
The lessons provide training in how to gradually awaken and develop the potential of happiness in our lives.

Scientific research shows that by practicing mindfulness and by generating feelings of connection, gratitude, awe and (self) compassion, we can positively influence the chemistry and neurology of our body and thus our moods. In the training, we will connect this scientific research with the corresponding Buddhist teachings and practices.


Who Should Attend

This course is for anyone eager to explore the depths of happiness and overcome obstacles hindering its growth. Whether you’re new to the journey or seeking deeper wisdom, this course promises profound revelations.

Eric Soyeux

Eric met his teachers Sogyal Rinpoche and Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche in 1984 in Amsterdam. From that time on he enthusiastically threw himself into the study and practice of the Dharma. He is co-founder of the Rigpa Foundation and also of other Buddhist organizations such as the Dzogchen Foundation and the Buddhist Union of the Netherlands. Over the years he has received lessons from teachers from multiple traditions, including the Bön tradition and the Yuthok tradition associated with Tibetan medicine. With his partner Natascha Geuzenbroek, he now teaches meditation and compassion in healthcare, business and education areas.


Natascha Geuzenbroek

In the late 1990s Natascha came across ‘The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying’ by Sogyal Rinpoche and was completely captivated: this is it! For as long as she can remember she sought and longed for knowledge about her true essence in order to connect with the world around her from this state. That is why she chose to go to the three-year retreat from 2006 to 2009 in order to deeply investigate, practice and thereafter integrate the Buddhist insights and values into her daily life. This period has given her the inspiration to now, together with Eric Soyeux, offer meditation and compassion training through their company Be Real Meditation Training.
