  • Taking back control.

    Taking back control.

    Life is good on Mallorca this January month. The days are sunny and soft, mostly 13 or 14 degrees Celsius, it feels like a mild spring, like always this time of year. But the nights are cold. Colder than other years and colder than when we lived on Ibiza. It’s around freezing temperatures and when […]

  • One Health.

    One Health.

    Damn, where is this going to? The Netherlands back in lockdown. Yes, it makes you feel down when you think of the small businesses, the folks working in hospitality,  theatres, healthcare, the constant loneliness, insecurity and fear that is pumping through young and old bodies. Exactly one year ago, I was in the Netherlands for […]

  • Ik bepaal wat er met mijn lichaam gebeurt {Dutch}.

    Ik bepaal wat er met mijn lichaam gebeurt {Dutch}.

    Het lijkt wel of ik naar een slechte B-film zit te kijken. Het voelt in ieder geval als een noodzaak hierover te schrijven. Zo langzamerhand is de tweedeling in de samenleving naar aanleiding van het vaccinatie-debat op z’n minst zorgwekkend te noemen. In Nederland en in de omringende Europese landen. Ik verzet me tegen het […]

  • De Wereld op z’n Kop!

    De Wereld op z’n Kop!

    In de strijd tegen het virus, Covid-19, zijn er volop discussies gaande over de noodzaak van het laten vaccineren, terwijl overheden nauwelijks, of zeg maar gerust niet, spreken over het belang van een gezonde levensstijl ter bevordering van de algemene gezondheid. Campagnes daarover moet ik nog altijd zien.  Nergens een geluid over gezonde voeding. Goed […]

  • Onrecht om van te janken. {Dutch}

    Onrecht om van te janken. {Dutch}

    “I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood.” ~ Audre Lorde  Nog krap een week en we komen aan bij de langste dag van het jaar. Er valt bar weinig […]

  • The Painful Contrasts in Today’s World.

    The Painful Contrasts in Today’s World.

    We live in an exceptional contrasting world. Unlike power and vulnerability which, if practiced consciously, strengthens each other, the contrasting forces in our world weakens the whole and therefore some important issues, such as climate breakdown and health, aren’t getting any easier to solve.

  • After-Corona Hippy Blur.

    After-Corona Hippy Blur.

    Why do we think we will live in a new, conscious world after the COVID-19 pandemic will be over? This new after-Corona world people talk about on social media. Is it true? Hippy-me and lawyer-me are speaking up in this article.

  • Stay True in Difficult Times? Watch Mooji’s Talk on Fear.

    Stay True in Difficult Times? Watch Mooji’s Talk on Fear.

    The comforting and powerful words of spiritual teacher, Mooji, feel like warm sunbeams touching my skin. They bring consolation and softness to my room. It’s always a pleasure to listen to Mooji’s calm voice and to look into his brown, friendly eyes. Restlessness slowly softens and disappears to the background as I listen to this heartfelt talk.

  • We’re going through changes. Right now {Poem}

    We’re going through changes. Right now {Poem}

    A world that has stopped turning madly, where the only people who have to hurry now, are the doctors and nurses. Their faces in pain of the tight masks they’re wearing Their bodies tired of the long hours they’re making Their hearts bleeding by carrying a heavy load Day in and day out, who knows.

  • Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live…And let’s change the way we treat each other.

    Let’s change the way we eat, let’s change the way we live…And let’s change the way we treat each other.

    Remember Tupac’s “Changes”? I still love this song. We’ve seen that it has been just a matter of weeks that our world has changed into a new one. The world isn’t the same anymore and there’s much uncertainty we need to deal with. It all seems quite surreal, but this is our new reality. It’s […]
