Presence & Self-Care Mentoring 

Live less in your mind and more in the present moment.

One-on-one mentoring sessions to help you live less in your thinking mind and more in tune with your heart, body and the present moment. 

The sessions are nature-based, with nature as an active partner of the process and elements of forest bathing and EcoNIDRA. They have a tailor-made approach focusing on topics like for instance:

  • How to stop overthinking and start living in a more easeful and lighter way,
  • How to un-busy and start living the life you really want to live,
  • How to navigate challenging life periods and big transitions without losing yourself and suffering negative health consequences,
  • How to efficiently take care of yourself to be able to help others without negative consequences for your own wellbeing, health and relationships,
  • How to create the habit of conscious resting to be able to live and work from your highest potential without compromising your health or relationships,
  • How to learn to consciously use one of our subtle senses, the heart-felt sense of the present moment, and benefit from enhanced quality of life,
  • Cultivating the art of non-doing and non-reaction,
  • Quieting the mind and reconnecting with nature and your body,
  • How to stop feeling that you lack something or need to be fixed and start living in peace with yourself,
  • How to accept and/or change your current life situation,
  • How to let go of living in the past or constantly planning for (near) future,
  • How to let go of the need to control and just be, and much more.

Transformation needs Presence.
