Born-and-raised a Dutchman, I now live in majestic Sedona AZ. With nothing more than an undying passion, hard dedicated work, and a dream. I am proud to say I have touched the lives of thousands by sharing my personal living philosophy.
Here’s my story…
As a deep feeler and rebel, many societal rules and structures, especially school, just felt wrong and unnatural. I ended up depressed, deflated, unmotived, and especially lost as a young teenager. Everything but myself was to blame for all that was wrong in the world, which became the very fuel for my ungroundedness and unavailability. I did not want to participate. Not much later something happened that I can only describe as my first awakening.
At the age of 13, I was deeply contemplating death and I noticed my own discontent with how I was complaining about everything. In that moment of rare clarity, something moved through me and willed myself into shape and said: “You know ending things is never an option for you, so stop complaining and go and do something about it!”
One of the things I’m often asked is
“How did you become so stable in yourself?”
To this day I am still grateful for my innate wisdom as a young teenager where I knew that the only place to start was with myself.
So after some searching, a year later (when I turned 14) I started practicing Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and Qigong. This felt like my life’s calling. The intense training felt like second nature to me, so I very quickly grew from being undisciplined and ungrounded to deciding to commit to a 1000-day challenge, where I trained for 3 years 3-4 hours a day, every single 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 (these are practices that I still developed and do to this day for 16 years). My love for understanding the nature of human life lead me to my first mentor other than my Kung Fu teacher. She was a Reiki Master and Chakra Healer. From when I was 15, she taught me everything she knew. This is where I started to learn to channel my sensitivities into tools to be offered in service.
At 18 years old, I wanted to deepen my knowledge decided to study Traditional Chinese Medicine. To put myself through schooling I started my own construction business. I utilized the tools that I learned from a very young age as I grew up on an old farm that was continuously being renovated. I had a knack for building. I worked and studied 120+ hours a week. And after 5 years of intense study in the fields of Acupuncture, Nutrition, Massage, and Western Medicine, I became the youngest licensed Traditional Chinese Medicine Therapist in Holland at the time. As part of my study, I decided to specialize in Esoteric Chinese Psychology; a deep study into human consciousness, where you learn to see the correlation between organ defects or dysfunctions and how they relate on a psychological level (in other words: how our mind affects our body very specifically).
Meanwhile, I became a certified Qigong teacher and therapist at the age of 21 after a 1-year training in The Netherlands. I continued my training with a following 5-year intensive teachers training in New Zealand (one-thousand hours of course material and many more hours of training). As part of this International Teachers Training, I was asked to teach the Chinese Medicine modalities each year thus becoming an international speaker at the age of 26. All while growing my business and becoming an entrepreneur in the field of Qigong and Esoteric Psychology, Philosophy, and Medicine.
I am privileged to have been exposed to ancient wisdom traditions from an early age, mainly through the practice of Martial Arts and Chinese Medicine. Although I have received guidance from excellent teachers, it has been primarily my own autodidactic skills, hard work, and unwavering dedication to a life of growth that I wrestled and fought my way into a certain measure of light that I offer in service to the best of my abilities.
As a result, I teach my own personal philosophy that over the work of a decade consistently and considerably increased the quality of life for many. I aim to offer a service that will allow you to stop seeking salvation outside yourself, and instead, discover -through deep inner work- liberation, direction, and strength within. A journey inwards leading to the warm life of Soul which we can call home.
For me learning never ends… you will find me studying, training, and teaching on a daily basis. This is part of the lifestyle I have forged to keep me in peak condition to offer the best quality service, presence, and guidance.
