I am an event organizer, trainer and coach in the area of (inner) sustainability and leadership in the face of climate change. Through a background in organic farming and landscape architecture, I have always asked myself how we relate to nature and how we can shape our involvement and care. These questions led me to investigate the human psyche in relation to her surrounding through various nature-based traditions and Buddhist retreats, my coaching education, and finally, a facilitator training for the Work that Reconnects.
Audiences I work with
I love working with people between 20-35, who are in search of their contribution in this day and age. I am also very much at home in academic settings.
Experience facilitating other events & workshops

I have also included inspiration from the Truth Mandala practice in my one-on-one coaching sessions when I felt it could add something significant, which has been very inspiring.
