As a young girl I walked around in the world bit lost, it all felt so 'unreal'. I was touched by the thoughts of Sokrates, and I dedicated my life to living as consciously as possible, aligning my thoughts, words and actions with eachother, in a sincere search for truth. So I decided to be a nurse, to meet people when the games stopped. I have been working with dying people almost my entire professional life, with an interval of four years studying Philosophy and some years working in a therapeutic community for teenagers and adolescents living and learning in groups and communities. since 1999 I actively joined the Peace movement, from activism to pacifism, organising ceremony on special locations or special times. The last three years I started recognizing the dying process on a collective scale, and now I feel I am in a roller coaster heading towards my destiny, which is inseparable from our collective future, learning to stay in where it is silent. While meeting Extinction Rebellion I heard about"mourning circles"and I felt the call to facilitate that, from my own background. That's when I learned about the work of Joanna Macy, and grateful I take the open hand to jin the network and tune in to the work already happening.
