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

Positive aging – in Dutch

Pascale’s positive and thus fundamentally different view on getting older!  In our Western culture we’ve become conditioned to think that aging means physical and mental decline as well as loneliness. Suffice it to look at the saying: ‘Old age has its infirmities’. But what If this is not true per se?  What if there is also an alternative – more beautiful – future scenario to live towards?  A lot depends on what we believe and what we believe depends a lot on our conditioning, for instance through the emphasis on the negative effects of aging by the media and the medical world. In our Western society with a rapidly aging population, there is an ever growing group that can profit from a positive take on aging. In this lecture, Pascale shares scientific research as well as inspiring examples of old people that show that it is not only feasible to stay physically and mentally fit until old age, but that it is even possible to (partly) reverse aging. And by that she doesn’t mean plastic surgery, but positive lifestyle choices and an in-love-with-life mentality.

What are you waiting for? Practical tips to realize your dreams – in Dutch!

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 Dutch!

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.
