Mindfulness is a training for the brain that allows you to relate to and manage the adverse physical, mental and emotional effects of stress more skillfully.  The mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) training, developed by the scientist, writer and meditation teacher Jon Kabat-Zinn, provides you with the fundamentals of mindfulness and stress reduction.  Kim Brice, your trainer, is a member of the Centrum voor Mindfulness training faculty, which is one of The Netherlands’ most pre-eminent centers promoting mindfulness.
