In the mid-80s, in a tumultuous period in my life, I learned to meditate with Ton Lathouwers. It was a huge revelation for me. It brought me back to something that had always been there, but from which I was completely estranged. It has remained the greatest source of inspiration in my life. In the meantime, I integrated it into my work as a psychiatrist under the heading of mindfulness and I lead a Zen group in Antwerp myself. At Lannoo I published a number of books on mindfulness and on Buddhism.
