About Kris Vandenreijt

My story

I fell in love with doing business the day the first computer arrived at my parents home. Even before finishing my engineering studies, I was selling security devices and developing my own GPS tracking label. Things went well! From an oldfashioned point of view … Turnover minus expenses gave a positive profit. OK so I was climbing the social ladder. From the outside everything looked perfect! From the inside I felt empty and with a lack of purpose…

The cliché of the number on your account not being proportional to your happiness got in my face. I threw my life around and went to Costa Rica, the land of Pura Vida ( Pure Life )  and where time has no value in search for true happiness.

When was the last time I was REALLY happy!? I had to dig deep and return 30 years in time: I was about 8 years old, exams were finished, all positive grades and my parents were told I had been a good boy (for once) … Can you imagine the sense of not having a single worry on your mind and being ready to have a blast of a 2 month summer vacation!? Aiming for exactly this sensation of freedom and inner peace became my new life goal! And convincing others to make it their life goal as well.

I bumped into a lot of interesting people until one day, a person introduced me to meditation. I had heard about meditation before and yes I had  already reached Nirvana (after plenty of beers). But was it something for me?! I was barely able to sit still for 15 minutes and if I was born these days they would have put me on ADHD medication for sure! Anyhow I talked myself into finding what’s all the buzz about and joined a 10 day Vipassana meditation course

You can consider Vipassana as a course on the practical tools of Buddhism but without the religious traditions. It shook my life! I gained more life experience in 10 days sitting in silence then I normally would have learned in 10 years!

I had to spread the word but … without much success. Investing 10 days to live the life of a monk didn’t seem appealing 😀 … I had to find another way! Suddenly a spontaneity course I took many years ago popped up in my mind. I started seeing similarities and all alarm bells in my head went off: Buddha Theatre was born!

I travelled over whole Europe joining theatre courses and tweaked the techniques in order to nourish the precious Buddha values I was so eager to spread. The more I got into it the more interesting it got! I noticed that my exercises added an extra level to meditation by practicing values like awareness, trust, true connection …: FACE to FACE, in real-life situations and at the end that’s what it’s all about!

I’m fiercely enthusiastic about the power of the Buddha Theatre techniques and what they can do for you or your business. They will inspire you with authentic trust & communication and create a platform for magic to happen!
