What I love:

I love love stories and I love writing and presenting. 

 

My childhood dream was to become a journalist and a writer and I'm very happy I could make that dream

come true. I have worked for national broadcasting services, for newspapers and magazines.
Around the age of 30 I got intrigued by the power of symbols, rituals and the path of inner growth,

discovering psychotherapy, meditation and yoga. I wrote several books about these themes. 

 

In 2007 I graduated as an integrative psychotherapist and in 2011 as a Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teacher.

In New Zealand I graduated as a celebrant at the Auckland Celebrant School and I got registered as an

official Marriage Celebrant in 2013.

 

I'm also very fond of dancing. I dance salsa, Argentine tango, African dance and freestyle, conscious dance.

I have been a party deejay for 20 years, nowadays I mainly deejay at Ecstatic Dance Events.

But, once in a while, I still throw a good party in the mix…
