I am born in Papua New Guinea but grew up in the Netherlands. Since my childhood I have been wandering around the questions who am I, where do I come from, why am I here and where will I go to in this life and after this life?
These questions have taken me on a journey of a life time. Very idealistic I started to work and study nursery in a hospital. Since this was not satisfying I quit. Driven by interest of other ways to deal with sickness and health I started to study natural ways of healing for about 25 years.
Then permaculture came on my way. It was such an eye opener and a joy to discover how simply things can brought back to balance again. Then I was blessed with funding to join the EDE in Sieben Linden and a Gen Conference in Portugal and Hungary. Also I partipated in an European funded project for Permaculture Teachers and Food 4 Resillience.
In the Netherlands I am connected to the Dutch GEN and Ecovillage Bergen. I am developping the 4 a Happy FoodTure Project and a training to support people to live joyfully and balanced together by making the transition from an I consciousness to a We or unity consciousness.
