I have been striving to better myself in all aspects of life, including my relationships, sexuality, business, and health. I am fortunate to have found Chinese Martial Arts as a young boy. For over seventeen years, the virtues I learned from Daoist philosophy have offered me guidance.
What I learned is that virtues are what makes the man. They are like the tracks that make the railroad, enabling the train to move. Without virtues, we become trains without their tracks. Spiritually, we lose sight of who we are and stray from our path.
This is my journey…
Traditional Chinese Medicine Therapist since 2009, 5 years of training in the fields of Acupuncture, Nutrition, Psychology, and Western Medicine.
Clinical Qigong Teacher Since 2012, with 7 years of teachers training.
17 years of Martial Arts Training, in the fields of Kung Fu, Tai Chi, Internal Martial Arts, and Qigong.
For as long as I can remember, I have followed my truth, outside of what society told me to be.
So naturally, it became what I teach others.
This is my journey…
At school, I did not fit in
As a deep feeler and rebel, many societal rules and structures, especially school, just felt wrong and unnatural. I did not want to participate, so I chose not to. Many school days you could find me outside lying in a grassy field enjoying nature, instead of attending classes. I quickly learned at school that the teachers knew nothing more than what I was able to read myself in the books we had to study. So why go to school?
Martial Arts became my salvation
Lost as a teenager and terrible at everything school had to offer, I had to find something to prove my worth. The mysteries of Chinese Martial Arts drew me. So, at the age of 14, I started practicing Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and Qigong; this felt like my life’s calling. I loved the intense training, discipline, and structure. But most of all, I finally found something I was good at doing. As a result, I very quickly grew from being undisciplined and ungrounded to deciding to commit to a 1000-day challenge. I created a training area in my parents garden, and trained for three whole years (1000 days), 3-4 hours a day. Kung Fu made my body and spirit strong. Tai Chi taught me to become aware of all the hidden tensions in my body. And Qigong was the inner mystical alchemy that bound everything together.
I learned to channel my sensitivities
A year later, at the age of 15, my sensitivities confused me. Other people’s emotions and their thoughts were overwhelming and exhausting to pick up on all the time. At night I experienced intense prophetic dreams, and beings started talking to me. I had no idea. So I reached out for help. Caitlin, a woman who is still dear to me, became my mentor. For two years, she taught me everything she knew as a Chakra Healer and Reiki Master.
This is what I did after school was over
For as long I can remember I wanted to be a healer of some sort. First, I believed I wanted to be a regular doctor, but my distaste for societal structures prevented me from becoming one. I could not go through the school system again. So, I looked for alternatives.
At 18 years old, I decided to become an acupuncturist. Daoist philosophy inspired me, so the choice seemed natural and logical. But even the alternative schooling system was not that much different. I quickly lost interest in receiving this special piece of paper that was going to help me start my career.
I pushed through the five years of study in the fields of acupuncture, nutrition, massage, and western medicine. As part of my research, I decided to specialize in Esoteric Chinese Psychology; this is an in-depth study of human consciousness. As a result, I became the youngest licensed Traditional Chinese Medicine Therapist in Holland at the time.
From here on, things became really interesting
After working in my clinic in The Netherlands for four years, I decided to quit being an acupuncturist. Although I loved being able to provide help to those in need. As an acupuncturist, I experienced how people were unwilling to look at their stuff. I was expected to heal them in exchange for money; this did not sit right with me.
As a result, I decided to close down my clinic and start all over again. While setting up my online business, at the age of 25, I traveled the world.
I ended up in New Zealand!
For six years, I traveled to New Zealand to attend a Teachers Training in Qigong and Internal Martial Arts. The training included one-thousand hours of course material and many thousands of hours of training. All while growing my business and becoming an entrepreneur in the field of Qigong and Esoteric Psychology, Philosophy, and medicine.
I always aim to offer you the best of the best
I feel privileged to have received ancient wisdom traditions from an early age, mainly through the practice of Martial Arts and Chinese Medicine. I have received guidance from excellent teachers, and I offer them my utmost respect. But, it has been primarily my own autodidactic skills, hard work, and unwavering dedication to a life of growth that made me the man I am today. I have wrestled and fought my way into a certain measure of light that I offer in service to the best of my abilities.
I teach my philosophy that for more than a decade consistently and considerably increased the quality of life for many.
I aim to offer you a service that inspires you to stop seeking salvation outside yourself. You do not need a teacher, guru, or schooling to show you your worth. You are not here to pick from life’s menu, but to forge your unique path and truth.
Through inner work, I wish for you to discover liberation, direction, and strength — a journey inwards leading to the warm life of Soul, which we can call home.
