Andy Merckaert

Mindfulness and Meditation Trainer at World Peace Initiative

  • Belgium
  • Active Peace Architect

Andy Merckaert is more than a teacher. He is an explorer of the inner landscape, a guide for the soul. With 29 years of experience in teaching morals, ethics and philosophy, he has not only shaped young minds but also enriched his own.

In 2020, Andy received the title of certified Mindfulness and Meditation trainer. His journey began nine years ago, when he was first introduced to mindfulness and meditation. For him, these practices are not abstract concepts; they are a lifeline. They help him with self-discovery, personal growth and mental resilience.

But Andy's journey doesn't stop at the classrooms. Under the name 'Stilstand' he guides individuals and groups, he also organizes meditation days and multi-day retreats from beautiful locations in Belgium to the mystical temples of Thailand and the sun-drenched shores of Egypt, Andy's mission is clear.

Welcome aboard 'AndMe Travel', where meditation and adventure go hand in hand. Because sometimes the true journey is not to a distant destination, but to the deepest part of ourselves. 🌿🌎✨
