Hi, I’m Wendy, founder of One Love Mindfulness.
I taught at a top UN institute for water professionals for 20 years. I was busy and motivated, innovative and proactive.
Then suddenly I felt completely overwhelmed.
The constant flood of information and distractions left me feeling overloaded, unable to focus, stressed.
I struggled to manage my time and attention. I ignored the warning signs of fatigue – headaches and back pain. I didn’t take breaks, became totally absorbed by work, planning and overthinking. In short, I couldn’t cope.
Until I found mindfulness
A genuinely transformative experience, Mindfulness has given me the capacity to cope with adversity and recover from it. I’m no longer caught up in negative thinking, but can tune into how I really feel and consciously create the life I want on a daily basis. I’ve experienced the power of Mindfulness and seen what a huge impact it has on our overall happiness and ability to thrive, and I can’t wait to share it with you.
Do you have difficulty sleeping? Your body tired but your mind overactive with unhelpful thoughts, plans or worries?
Are you often frustrated by feelings of anxiety? Do you worry about the future, or regret the past?
Are you always short of time, unable to reach the end of your to-do list? Feeling overwhelmed?
Do you struggle to prioritize or focus on tasks? Feel restless? Under pressure?
Low on energy?
Do you need to slow down and decrease your stress?

Get Started with a Mindfulness Course
Mindfulness training is an empowering skill and an effective way to stay calm, focused and better manage the pressures of daily life.
All One Love courses are in English; Wendy is a native-speaker and expert teacher in the international community. She is a fully qualified Mindfulness Professional, MBSR & MBI Teacher, and certified member of the VVM. Health insurance recognised, so costs can be reimbursed.
In-person classes in Delft, or opt for live online classes.
Start gently with the 6-week Dealing with Stress course, or take the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course (MBSR), both accessible for beginners. In each case, we will first have a pre-course phone call to give you the opportunity to ask questions or discuss any concerns, so you can be sure the course is right for you.
Some experiences with One Love Mindfulness
I felt at ease for the duration of the course. I liked the small group environment and safety to share our unique perspectives. There was a sense of warmth, peace, and togetherness.– Josephine
What a great and deeply connected teacher. I am really thankful that I could work with Wendy and I can’t wait to learn more from her. I would deeply recommend working and learning from this wonderful woman.– Daria
What I liked very much about this course is the practical approach of Wendy. She invited me to discover my own way of mindfulness and meditation, and to discover what works for me. And also to trust it can work for me – now I sleep better and don’t wake up from the tension in my neck three times a night. I even have less cravings for chocolate, cookies and chips! Maybe miracles do exist.– Saskia

Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
8 sessions of 2.5 hours each plus an optional (highly recommended!) practice day (silent retreat). This course follows the internationally-recognised MBSR program developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at the UMASS Medical Center. It is a scientifically-grounded program, shown to reduce stress and allow us to enjoy a better quality of life. Taught in this structure, the MBSR program has been widely proven to significantly improve well-being, with lasting effect.
The program is experiential and comprises active participation rather than passive learning, taught in a supportive small group environment.

• Session 2: Exploring Perception and how it affects Responses
• Session 3: The power of being present: Living all our moments
• Session 4: Stress Reactivity
• Session 5: Responding to stress with awareness
• Session 6: Building Resilience
• Session 7: Integrating Mindfulness for better Self-care
• Session 8: A Mindful Life – Maintaining the practice
The MBSR program is available either in-person, in Delft, or LIVE online through Zoom, an easy, user-friendly platform. Zoom sessions follow the same format of meditations, discussions and learning as in-person courses, and everyone can see and hear each other and participate normally.
At the sessions:
• guided meditations (sitting, walking, lying)
• practical mindfulness exercises for everyday living
• discussing and sharing practice experiences
As well as these exercises and theory, additional course materials are provided for daily home practice:
