‘Pascale Bruinen has a compelling and beautiful story to tell about how you can live your dreams at age fifty!’ Emile Hollman, journalist and writer
‘Wonderful how Pascale has managed to link her own growth and personal development with professionality and her wish to make vulnerability a strength in the boardrooms and in the workplace. The way Pascale does this is intense, expressive and with a sparkle of humor and softness at the same time. Pascale may have given up her magistrate’s robe, but she certainly has kept her unmistakable magnificent charisma.’ Danielle Braun – Corporate Antropologist, author, speaker and chief of the Academy for Organisation Culture
Pascale gives lectures both in Dutch and English and is registered at speaker agencies ZijSpreekt, Speakers Academy and Huibers Booking Agency (for further contact details, please see below).
Your dream life is closer than you think!
According to Pascale, nothing trumps inspiring people to pursue their dreams and make the most out of their lives! If you’d also like to do something that makes your eyes sparkle, Pascale is more than happy to help you realize this goal!
* What are you waiting for? Practical tips to realize your dreams
We all know them. People who would like to get everything out of their lives that they possibly can but lack the courage to do so. At 50, Pascale has realized her dream of writing a book. At that time, she had been a public prosecutor for 17 years. Because by then she was infected with the writing virus, she decided to make a radical career switch at 52 in order to follow her heart. So on January 1st 2016, she exchanged her steady job for a completely new life as a writer and speaker. Because Pascale knows like no other how happy one can become after taking a leap of faith, she loves to share her personal experiences, advice and tips about how she conquered the fears that held her back (yes, she also had them!) In this presentation she makes short shrift with all the stories and excuses, and teaches you how to successfully build a parallel career without financial risks. This way, you’ll take concrete steps towards your new future in which you will (again) find passion, meaning and happiness in your life.
* The Year of the Owl: a journey from the head to the heart
In this lecture, Pascale candidly tells her very personal story about her mourning process and total transformation after her father’s death, as described in her book The Year of the Owl. She shares how she of all people- being an accomplished and rational prosecutor who was averse to anything spiritual and who literally made a living having to prove everything beyond a shadow of a doubt – experienced an enchanting and magical occurrence that changed her whole life forever. Whereas first she would say ‘Seeing is believing’, ever since she has learned that it’s exactly the opposite: you first have to believe it, in order to subsequently see it.
Physical and mental well-being:
* It’s all in the mind: an exploration of the power of the human mind
The power of the human mind is one of the most underestimated powers that exist. In this lecture, you’ll discover exactly how powerful it is. I’ll delve deeper into the fascinating mind-body connection and the far-reaching, positive or negative, influence of your thoughts and beliefs on your health. In this respect, I will deal with fascinating subjects like the placebo and nocebo effect and answer the question why some patients with a dire diagnosis survive and others, under the same circumstances, do not. What do those survivors have in common? Learn how you can leave your negative thoughts and limiting convictions behind in order to maximize your physical and mental wellbeing as well as your resilience.
Please note: this lecture is part of the lecture series ‘Mind over Matter’ (which also consists of ‘After the diagnosis…How to optimally prepare yourself for an operation or treatment’ and ‘Magic of Manifestation: From Desire to Reality’), but can also be attended as an individual lecture.
