Workshop ‘Magic of Manifestation: from Desire to Reality’ in retrospect

It was a memorable Sunday, April 15th 2018, full of inspiration, enthusiastic attendees and a beautiful serene location at Yoga & More Maastricht. Everyone had their radar open for new knowledge and new angles of looking at something. All the attendees connected very well together and we also enjoyed a wonderful lunch made by Adventurecook. The good vibrations were all over the room!

The workshop was held in a positive, informal and relaxed manner, which was due to everyone’s good effort and openness. For Egbert Brons and me it was a very beautiful experience to see how motivated everyone was at the end of the day to take concrete steps in the direction of their dreams. After all, that’s what we are here for! We are therefore very grateful for the results.

The reactions were so positive that we will do another workshop ‘Magic of Manifestation: from Desire to Reality’ in the fall of 2018. The exact date will be notified!

PHOTOSHOOT MARIE CLAIRE!

Last week I had the fotoshoot of Marie Claire Fashion Magazine! Thanks to the great team consisting of fashion photographer Suzanne Rensink, producer Gina Pesulima, make up artist Maaike Beijer and stylist Famke Mesman, it was a wonderful day. These four ladies are not only excellent professionals, but they also have very nice and warm personalities. For these reasons, they immediately made me feel at home so the shoot was a wrap in no time. Unfortunately, I had to give back the beautiful offwhite suit. Luckily, I decided to buy it a few days later :-). I was not so sad to hand over the shoes as I was not able to walk on them …(the evidence of which you can probably see in one of the pictures below). Mid May, the magazine will be in stores with the article about four strong women (next to me, they have portraits of a lawyer, judge and vice detective). I’ll be back on this topic!

Interview in regional newspaper De Limburger

Today, a short interview with me is published in regional newspaper De Limburger for the section ‘Getting up with…’. A big thank you to journalist Ivar Hoekstra for the text and photographer Harry Heuts for the picture! Nice atmosphere picture complete with my PJ-pants full of owls…

Spreker tijdens de Bed Talks 2018 van The Student Hotel Maastricht

Op vrijdag 2 maart 2018 ben ik van 17.30 uur tot 18.15 uur een van de sprekers tijdens de Bed Talks 2018 van The Student Hotel Maastricht. Tijdens deze dag nodigt men inspirerende sprekers oftewel game changers uit om hun ideeën over wereldverbetering met hun ‘bedpartner’ – zijnde een andere spreker aan wie ze gekoppeld worden – te delen gedurende een 45 minuten durend gesprek. De conversatie vindt plaats op, jawel!, een bed. Het is de bedoeling dat er in deze relaxte setting, samen met de daarbij aanwezigen, iets moois ontstaat in de vorm van een constructieve discussie, het delen van kennis en/of het komen tot een gezamenlijk initiatief om elkaar verder te helpen.

Mijn ‘bedpartner’ voor deze gelegenheid is Sheila Oroschin, oprichter van The Masters, een particulier initiatief voor ‘anders’ ontwikkelde jongeren om hun talenten te ontdekken, ontwikkelen en benutten. Voorwaar een zeer inspirerende dame met wie ik vast en zeker een bijzondere klik zal maken!

Ik ben zeer vereerd om deel uit te mogen maken van dit fantastische gezelschap en verheug me op de verbinding met al die andere gelijkgestemden!

Royal attention for ‘The year of the owl’!

I’m honored to receive this letter from the Secretary of Her Majesty Queen Máxima and His Majesty King Willem Alexander of the Dutch Royal Family.  With this letter they let me know that ‘they very much appreciated my kind gesture of sending my book ‘The year of the owl’ to Her Majesty Queen Máxima’.

Interview and fotoshoot for De Limburger

Just had an interview and fotoshoot for the Saturday magazine of daily regional newspaper De Limburger. The article is part of a series called ‘Getting up with…’, that’s why I’m in my PJs 🙂 Big thanks to journalist Ivar Hoekstra and photographer Harry Heuts.

Date of publication is not set yet; probably Saturday 24th of February or Saturday the 3rd of March.

 

Interview for magazine Marie Claire

On Monday the 5th of February 2018, I’ll be interviewed for the magazine Marie Claire. The magazine runs an article entitled ‘Law & Order’ in which they feature women that work (or worked, as in my case) in law enforcement. The interview will deal with what my life as a female prosecutor looked like and why I made the switch to being a fulltime writer.

Looking forward to it!

DRIJFVEREN: interviews met succesvolle vrouwen en mannen over hun heilige vuur.

In het kader van een reeks interviews getiteld “DRIJFVEREN”, interview ik succesvolle vrouwen en mannen over hun heilige vuur. Wat drijft deze bijzondere mensen eigenlijk, diep van binnen? Waar vinden zij dat het om draait in het leven? Aan welke factoren schrijven zij hun succes toe? En heeft het succes hen ook gelukkiger gemaakt?

Binnenkort start deze serie hier op mijn website onder het kopje ‘Inspirator’. Vanaf 18 januari a.s. plaats ik elke maand een nieuw interview met een spraakmakend en gedreven iemand die zijn of haar hart volgt en dromen (heeft) waar(ge)maakt.

Tot snel!
