Hi, I’m Olivier Devroede and I have been meditating since more than ten years now. I am in the process of becoming a professional mindfulness trainer, but I have already given a couple of trainings.

I have always been interested the eastern cultures and about ten years ago, I started to meditate. However, it was not until my father died a couple of years later and I developed a serious illness that made me keep the bed for 6 month, that I started to meditate seriously. I then took a formal 8 week MBSR training and I have never stopped the serious practice since.

This site is about the many wonderful things I learned in the process. But, since I am a scientists myself (I have a PhD in physics), I will keep a close eye on the science that is now being discovered about mindfulness. I’m particularly interested in how mindfulness can improve our happiness. Because, isn’t that what we all want, more happiness?
