Are you asking yourself the following questions: What to do with struggles and unpleasant emotions? What is your true purpose in life? What do women really want? What to do to love yourself and others? …. then continue reading.
This group is for all those who want to work on their personal development, regardless of age or profession.
The group is especially suitable for people who work with people, who are in the helping professions, in leadership and account management positions or perceive themselves as overly self-critical, perfectionists, perceive the need for constant control and have difficulty relaxing.
We will challenge each other in experiential ways to find together the answers on the most important issues in men’s lives-from career and family to women and intimacy to love and spirituality and relationships-to offer a practical guidebook for living a masculine life of integrity, authenticity, and freedom.
We will practice how to respond more sympathetically to the unpleasant emotions we encounter in our daily lives, how to take care of ourselves when we go through challenging periods, how to “calm” our self-criticism, self-condemnation and perfectionism when it is not functional.
We will try to better define our personal boundaries in relationships with others, our values and needs that we often neglect in relationships with ourselves, and we often tend to place others above ourselves.
Through various experiential exercises also in the field of Mindfulness practice, conversation, we will practice how to bring self-compassion into our daily lives, how to motivate ourselves through compassion and acceptance rather than criticism and condemnation.
Depending on the dynamics and needs of the group, the coach reserves the right to tailor the program to the needs of the group members themselves, but roughly these are some of the areas we deal with:

After 7 years of running a successful Web Development company Techtwo in the Netherlands, I lost myself in depression and addiction that led to burnout. This created the opportunity to fulfill my dream of exploring myself, the world and beyond. A wonderful journey that brought me new insights and transformed my belief system of where life is about. I will embody the new generation waking up to put their gifts and skills in service of finding Purpose in Life by using Mindfulness, Coaching, e-Learning, Motivational Speaking, Marketing, Commerce and facilitating Retreats & Workshops to influence and empower corporations and the individual.

Compassion involves our ability to recognize that other people are suffering, going through a difficult period, and to respond to it through our sense of care and need to do something to help that person. Compassion also implies that we offer a person our understanding and care, rather than condemnation and criticism. Self-compassion involves behaving in the same way, but to ourselves when we go through a difficult period, when we have failed or failed or are dissatisfied with ourselves. Instead of ignoring, criticizing, condemning ourselves, we offer ourselves understanding, care, and compassion when it is difficult for us.

Mindfulness is a very powerful practice of training our attention. By training our mindfulness with the help of Mindfulness, we are learning how to be present here and now. By focusing on internal and external experiences without judgment, accepting those experiences without trying to change, suppress, or stop them. This practice is powerful because it helps us learn how to stop ourselves in our overthinking thoughts, worries, thoughts about the past, future and all that distracts us from our immediate experience in the present and provokes stress and unpleasant feelings in us. The person responsible for popularizing Mindfulness is Professor Emeritus Professor John Kabat Zin, who created an eight-week program called the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) in the late 1970s that has proven particularly successful in the areas of stress and anxiety reduction. Over time, Mindfulness is gaining importance in the fields of medicine, psychology and education, with the goal of applying it in the field of mindfulness enhancement and mental health improvement, and today, Mindfulness training participants are people of diverse needs.
