Ep.24 Mindfulness. Why it is not only a hype. Interview with Kristiaan bij de Vaate, Psychologist, Coach Counselor Mindfulness and Self-compassion Trainer.
Have you ever wondered why so many people talk about mindfulness, but many don't really know about its origin? In this interview with Kristiaan bij de Vaate he explains to us that Kabat-Zinn brought mindfulness out of the spiritual (Buddhist) context and introduced it in the seventies to the western psychology. Mindfulness changes the relation we have with our emotions and our thoughts and by changing this relation we can overcome chronic stress, treat depression, and prevent burnout. Kristiaan bij de Vaate graduated as a Social Psychologist and after travelling by bike from the Netherlands to India, he decided to become a mindfulness trainer. His passion for travelling took him also to Nepal and both trips changed his view of the world, he learned different meditation techniques and practiced Yoga. He works and lives in Amsterdam. His office is in Amsterdam South where he coaches people 1-1 or in group in English or Dutch. For more information check: https://www.kbdv.nl/
