Mindfulness brings me back the moment, I was living either past or future, missing the only thing that I really can be in, which is now. Along this journey of Mindfulness learning sessions, I discovered “me, my self, an I” better than ever, even though it comes to end but it was really the start for a better way to live my life. I can’t describe this experience with few words because it’s beyond letters and sentences, it’s about getting out of the matrix and jump to new dimensions with a new point of view about bring back intentions and attention to meet again, it’s the simplest form of complexity.

Life and time are the two best teachers. Life teaches us to make good use of time and time teaches us the value of life
As long as I lived, I’ve never been aware of the present moment. I was always here but not truly HERE… I never knew how to cherish the single moment I was living without thinking of the things that I needed to do next…I was always lost in my thoughts, focusing on my past and future, I was never conscious that I was ‘’here’’ because of the breaths I was taking in that specific moment!!
And that is what I enjoyed learning with you Rola! Really thank you for starting with us this journey of mindfulness! Thank you for helping us to pause, to think of our wellbeing, our existence, and to listen to our breathing and be mindful of the moment, of that breath!
Can’t thank you enough Rola!

“ Right at the very beginning of the Covid19 virus outbreak, IBE Institute was a pioneer in anticipating the mental health needs that arose from this exceptional situation. IBE provided me, through this course, with different mindfulness tools from the weekly sessions conducted online and post sessions activities, which helped me to better observe my behavior through curiosity, accept what can and cannot be changed in life and during these circumstances and adjust my behavior according to what best serves being mentally balanced, healthy and what makes me a happier person. For that, I am forever grateful and thankful to Rola Annan who has introduced me to this mindfulness lifestyle and continued to pave the way of this wonderful journey.”
