My curiosity about the human spirit has led me to explore life in different ways.
First I am a mother, a grandmother, and have been married since I was 22 years of age.
I have worked as a psychotherapist in the village where I live. I wanted to work in a place where I could make a link between people who visited the doctor and my own spiritual life.
This has helped me to ground, and to find a language that could be understood by many people.
During my work I was impressed by the importance of being centered in the body, both for the client and for me as a therapist.
At the end of 2000, I started writing.
When I was studying A Course of Miracles, I wondered why the words ‘I am not my body, I am free’, troubled me.
I wanted to find out what my truth is about the relationship between body and Spirit.
This exploration resulted in two books: Wholeness and Wholeness complete.
At that time I thought I had finished writing, but my spirit moved me to write another book: Playing with the Life Force.
In this book I explore the relationship between the Tzolkin sun glyphs and 26 energy points in the body, as they are described by the ancient Japanese art Jin Shin Jyutsu®.
After my career as a psychotherapist I joined Lynn Andrews Mystery School and four years later I was ordained as a minister and a shaman.
Now I am painting feminine bodies, faces, following the 13 step method of Shiloh McCloud.
This helps me to deeper embody the feminine energy that I am.
I will also teach others to paint according to the method, in order to find the hidden places that want to be revealed and more fully expressed.
I live part of the time in the Netherlands and the other part in Spain, right at the Atlantic Ocean. When I am in Spain, I have the feeling of being attuned to the greater universe, and when I return to my house in the Netherlands, I feel that I am grounding.
All these facets are reflected on my website.
My inside does not understand
and is upset.
May we be blessed in our journey together
Oh yes, may this be.
