Pascale’s mentioned in the newsletter of speakers’ agency ZijSpreekt with the topics of her founding the Academie voor Zelfherstel and her new book, ‘Zelfherstel van binnenuit. Optimaliseer je gezondheid met je gedachten, gevoelens en overtuigingen’ that will be published by AnkhHermes Publishers in the summer of 2021.
19 April 2020
L1 Interview with Pascale about the ‘New Normal’ in times of covid-19. Here is the text in Ditch:
‘In de rubriek ‘Het nieuwe normaal’ komt elke week een prominente Limburger aan het woord over de coronacrisis. In het eerste interview: Pascale Bruinen, ze is schrijver, spreker en trainer.
“Deze crisis laat zien dat het leven niet honderd procent maakbaar is. Dat wisten we al, maar dat krijgen we nu in ons gezicht gedrukt. Ik besteed veel tijd aan het optimaliseren van mijn gezondheid. Verse groente en vers fruit, noten, water en groene thee. Elke dag een wandeling en bij mooi weer yoga in de tuin. Omdat de sportschool dicht is heb ik zelf barbells gemaakt door gewichten aan een bezemsteel vast te maken. Wat betreft de innerlijke kant: ik maak bewust ruimte voor mentale ontspanning.”
“Ik ontwaar dat hier en daar al. In hoeverre dat standhoudt? Ik denk daar veel over na, maar kan er nog geen antwoord op formuleren. Dat hangt af van hoelang deze crisis zal voortduren. Als deze situatie het nieuwe normaal wordt, zullen meer mensen zich die fundamentele vragen gaan stellen. Dan komt er wellicht een nieuw evenwicht.”
21 January 2020
Publication of Pascale’s article in De Limburger.
26 November 2019
Column ‘Lééf-tijd’ by Pascale in ‘Gezond in Limburg’, the annex to De Limburger with this time the theme of care for the elderly. Read Pascale’s refreshingly positive view on aging!
26 November 2019
Publication of Pascale’s article ‘De kracht van positiviteit’ in De Limburger, about the biologica effects of belief and deeply ingrained convictions.
1 May 2019
Publication of Pascale’s article ‘Het gelijk van Einstein’ about the biological effects of visualization on the body.
The new brochure featuring the sponsors of orchestra philharmonie zuidnederland has been published. Pascale is proud that she has been able to contribute to the brochure by doing three interviews with sponsors Roy Senff, Aukje Kuypers and Atzo Nicolaï. A big thank you to PR manager Maud Douwes and photographer Hugo Thomassen for the wonderful magazine!
15 January 2019
Regional newspaper De Limburger has published another article written by Pascale, entitled: ‘The healing power of the mind’. About how to use mind power – for instance with visualization – to improve your health. Not instead of regular medical treatment or medicines and a healthy lifestyle, but in addition to these, so it can strengthen their efficacy. Taking into account the many positive reactions to Pascale’s article on social media, it is clear that this is a socially relevant subject for many people.
Beautiful and encouraging to see this, because it is about time that people become more aware of these possibilities and the practical ways in which they can use these in order to become the co-directer of their own health.
14 December 2018
De Limburger has published Pascale’s article ‘Weg met het ziekenhuis’. It pleads to change some names in Dutch healthcare that have wrong, negative, associations. Pascale likes to choose new alternative names, for instance to change ‘patient’ into ‘co-director healing’. Not only can such new names lead to more positive conditioning, but they also reinforce that people take responsibility for their own health and well being.
28 November 2018
Pascale’s article on the powerful placebo effect is published in De Limburger. Read (in Dutch) how your mind influences your body.

Yesss! Marie Claire magazine has been published! Here is the long awaited interview (in Dutch).
12 April 2018
Today Pascale had the photoshoot 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. Pascale: ‘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).’
6 April 2018
Regional newspaper De Limburger has published Pascale’s piece entitled ‘Attention is the new gold’. Many readers let her know that they recognize this subject – the (impending) lack of personal connection in our digital age – very well.

Because the iconic magazine Harper’s Bazaar ‘enormously admires Pascale on account of the careerpath that she have taken’, in the spring of 2015 Pascale was chosen to be ‘Woman of the Week’, the start-up phase for the election of ‘Woman of the Year 2015’. With this election, Harper’s Bazaar pays hommage to women who have accomplished something special within their field of expertise. ‘Harper’s Bazaar honours and crowns national and international luminaries: Women who show vision, courage, engagement and style’. A great honor!
With ten out of fifty nominees there was a trailer recorded on the backseat of a very nice Mercedes and Pascale was one of the happy few. Editor-in-chief Cécile Narinx interviewed me about careerchoices and everything regarding her work as a prosecutor. For the trailer, please click on play below or click on this link:

Unfortunately, on December 14th 2015 Pascale did not win the Award for Harper’s Bazaar Woman of the Year 2015. Pascale: ‘I admit that my ego found this somewhat of a shame because when you’ve come that far, you also want to win. But I had to concede to the winner, actress Sophie Hilbrand for her tv-show ‘Sophie’s Wrinkles’ (‘Sophie in de Kreukels’). She is a justified winner!’
Knowing that Pascale was chosen by Harper’s Bazaar as a nominee together with world famous athlete Dafne Schippers, actresses Birgit and Katja Schuurman, actress and musical star Chantal Janzen, fashion icon Nikkie Plessen, actress Hanna Verboom, politician for animal rights Marianne Thieme and world class actress Carice van Houten, Pascale went back home with pride and her head held high.
So thank you very much, editor-in-chief Cécile Narinx of Harper’s Bazaar for this great honour and the unforgettable night!

Today I participated in the Info Day in Kerkrade, organized by Lieky van der Velden. There were many stalls with interesting information regarding chronic illnesses and positive and uplifting ways to deal with them. It was a day full of nice conversations, useful contacts and even some sold books. All in all a day well spent! #liekyvandervelden #infoday #positivehealth #directyourownhealth #mindpower #mindbodyconnection #selfhealing
12 December 2018
From 8.00 a.m. until 8.00 p.m. Pascale has had the honor to participate in De Droommachine (The Dreammachine) in De Grote Hegge in Thorn, an initiative of Joop Wolters, founder of PlekC. Together with 38 top entrepreneurs in Limburg she experienced a day full of inspiration and connection. A day during which many a small and large dream was fulfilled. And a day full of emotion because she saw how much (com)passion still exists for fellow human beings. It was a day full of positive energy that will linger for quite some time.
18 September 2018
Today, a personal portrait of Pascale has been published in ‘Heroine’s Journey’, a beautiful and inspiring initiative to bring an homage to women who have chosen to do what they love best. Big thanks to Peter de Kuster who has approached Pascale for this!

Today the book “Onveranderd Anders” (Unchanged Changed) has been published, a crowdwritingproject of several writers and poets out of the province of Limburg, amongst whom yours truly. The proceeds go to the Toon Hermans Houses in Limburg, because they do so much beautiful work for cancerpatients and their loved ones. It has become a wonderful book that provokes smiles as well as tears. Just in style with the late Toon Hermans (a famous Dutch comedian and poet). Here you see Pascale with author Andrea Germeraad who took the initiative for this crowdfundingproject and made it a success. Pascale’s contribution to the book is a personal story entitled ‘Sisters for always’.

14 December 2015
Gala Night of the Dutch Harper’s Bazaar Woman of the Year Award 2015. With this Award Gala, the iconic magazine honours ‘the world’s most remarkable women (…). Women with vision, guts, engagement and style. Game changers and pioneers.’ With the Woman of the Year Award, Harper’s Bazaar ‘brings an homage to women who have done something special within their field of expertise….’. Pascale is one of the nominees because Harper’s Bazaar has ‘enormous admiration for the careerpath’ that Pascale follows.
Looking back, it was a wonderful and memorable night, even though the Award eventually went to actress Sophie Hilbrand and well-deserved! And so Pascale returned home with her head held high, full of pride and gratitude to have been a part of this inspiring group of women.
