Making mourning the losses of me, you and the world and the soul of all of us into an exquisite skill. Starting up a local grief circle to make that into a communial local ritual.
I am a woman and a mother. I love dancing (biodanza and tantric) and singing
(voice liberation with sounds and singing songs) I adore cooking as a deeply nourishing, healing, connecting, playful and creative practice. I have a very well trained mind as a philosopher but I tend to send this mind on holiday more and more (to Florida). I left my homecountry (Belgium) because it had become a once helpful but now destructive part of myself. My new me is living in the Netherlands.
The most serious things in life are at the same time the most funny.
