We live in challenging times. Turning on the television makes the vibe in the room change completely. The world outside is rumbling and when the world is rumbling, it rumbles on all levels. In our work, in our families and in our private life. Nobody can escape the change in vibes. Some experience it more […]

About children, education and connection

Sitting at the beach on a beautiful morning last week, I spoke with a friend about connection. I called her, because her name just popped up in my mind and I wondered if she wouldn’t like to join me at my fantastic freelance work spot for the day. She answered the phone with the words, […]

About KPI’s, leadership and transformation

During my professional life, I’ve encountered many companies. They each have a different story to tell about a product they deliver. As a consultant in communications and PR, it is all about delivering the right message to the right target group.

The owner, Leo Kaniok, gave up his job because he found an old bag filled with pages and pages full of stories from different mystical traditions while moving his father to another home.

How to commit to the present?

Last week a friend invited me to come with her to the ‘De Mot Verhalen‘. In a beautiful setting, all kinds of people sit together and five of them tell a story with a musical intermezzo in between.

Challenges

What if you have a meeting tomorrow that makes you nervous, the thought of it makes you tremble, of which your entire body tells you it wants to run away from it? What then? What do you do? Do you recognize that? As I am a freelance consultant I don’t have those meetings very often, […]

Awareness

‘Once you know, you can’t not know it anymore’, is what Alan Seale told us during the Manifestion Wheel. But when do you know? The problem is I know by feeling.
