Let me take you back to my 70-ties…
In my early childhood I had deep questions about myself, life and the Divine. This life (me and the world) could not be it(?)
I was often disappointed about daily life and its superficiality. From myths, legends and spiritual stories, I distilled pleasure and meaning in my play with toys, writing and reading. Mainly about knights, medieval times and magical -mysterious journeys. I found out they triggered my creativity and joy for life.
My choices of music, books, films, all pointed in the same direction (and still do). Looking back, I can say that my grandfather, my drum- teacher en karate- teacher, were my first great examples of how to live your life as your own Hero (in your own story).
They followed their own (inner) way; directed towards a destination that brought them meaning and happiness. Such a path I have followed and is still going on….
My discovery of the human being started with physiotherapy, which I professed for about 20 years in my own private practices, and taught at the university of Utrecht. There I taught physiology, anatomy, pathology and many other subjects. Through many different studies I added psychotherapy to this knowledge of the body. Gradually my work started to shift from “body work” to integrative therapy and counseling. Specially when I simultaneously combined this knowledge with the esoteric wisdom, I was (am) so in love with.
I could say that I have become my own “product”. An individual road and unique path of development.
Because of this story, I feel that I am privaledged to pass on this knowledge through teaching and counseling/ therapy.
