The training is open to women and men. MBSR has been proven to benefit anyone who wants to improve their overall quality of life. However, it is especially useful for individuals who experience any signs or symptoms of stress such as:
During the training, you will learn practices that can be integrated into you everyday life which will help you recognize your physical limits, how stress manifests itself in your body, and the habitual mental and emotional patterns that cause stress and how to relate to them in a more supportive and skillful way.
Personal investment and commitment
The training consists of 8 sessions od 2,5 hours and a day of stillness. The course fee is €475 (including 21% VAT).
You receive 26 hours of training, a workbook and recorded meditations in either English or Dutch. If you are not able to pay this fee due to financial circumstances, please send Kim an email about explaining your circumstances and why you wish to take this training.
The training is intensive and requires personal motivation as well as a substantial time commitment. In order for the training to have most effect, 45 minutes of daily practice is recommended.

What participants say about the training
“Deze training zal je helpen om meer contact te komen met jezelf. Om te schakelen van de doen modus naar de zijn modus. Ik besef me nu hoe belangriijk dat is. En Kim is de beste leraar die ik me voor kan stellen. Zo toegewijd en gepassioneerd. Ze heeft alles tot in de puntjes geregeld, is super creatif , heel begripvol en open en afgestemd op ieder uit de groep.” Drees Koren
“Wat heb ik geleerd? Poeh heeeeel veeel. Ruimte op momenten dat ik nodig heb. Ik kan dingen herkennen — dagdromen, piekeren, stress in mijn lichaam — en hier wat aan doen. Het zijn tools om je leven zelf meer in de hand te hebben in plaats van dat alles je overkomt of gewoontjes zijn. Je bent vaker bewust van eigenlijk alles. En er komt ruimte.” Joyce van Raam
“Right before the training, I started to have all the signs of a burn out. This training taught me how to recognize them and how to reduce my stress levels. It helped me go through a very difficult time. I discovered with mindfulness that I could handle pressure and difficulties without compromising my health. It helped me get on the path towards happiness. And Kim is great. She has the perfect aura to help someone in distress come back to their heart and to live with greater awareness.” Mael Gormand
The evidence: the effectiveness of mindfulness
The effects of mindfulness have been studied scientifically for the past 35 years. There are hundreds of published studies on the effects of mindfulness interventions especially MBSR and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). Research has shown that MBSR benefits individuals that experience high degrees of stress, psychological conditions such as anxiety, panic, fatigue, sleep disturbances and as prevention for individuals who seek to improve their general well-being and create more balance in their lives.
Studies show that mindfulness is proven to increase life quality and engenders positive changes in cognitive and neurobiological functioning. Moreover, mindfulness transforms the way people look at and consequently react to themselves and the people and circumstances in their lives. The broad effects of mindfulness make it of value to many.
While there are many other methods that can help with stress management and personal transformation, including time and priority management and personal coaching for example, mindfulness practices, in my view, serve as an excellent foundational basis for everything else.
