Are we our thoughts? Does excessive thinking - or worrying - produce it's intended effects? Should we avoid discomfort, or invite it?

A very practical conversation with Prof. Filip Raes, in which we look at the question "who are we, why are we?".

I learned a lot from it about the often stormy weather conditions inside my mind, and I hope it may give you similar insights as well.

Filip teaches at KULeuven on the subject of clinical psychology. Besides that he is also a cognitive behavioural therapist. Some of his various interests include art and genealogy.

Do you want to know more about Filip's perspective on worrying, and his approach? He just wrote a book about it (in Dutch): "Weg van het piekeren. Actie als remedie." - https://www.lannoo.be/nl/weg-van-het-piekeren
