Our language is not large enough to embrace the fast-emerging evolutions in our culture, society and consciousness. A new and powerful conversation is upon us. It will open up new territories for us as individuals, for us in relationship to others, and for the world as a whole. To spearhead this conversation we must be prepared to think and act from wholeness, from the basis that links us together. It is only through this dialogue that we can truly find new ways to be and act. That is why I facilitate powerful conversations between leaders and entrepreneurs, and all other individuals or groups of people who are willing to play a key role in the yet to be realised connected society. Together we create awareness of the new realities and the many possibilities arising from them, opening up strategies, ideas, potential and opportunities that really matter.
After a first pilot in Rotterdam, Your Lab will start in Amsterdam, June 2012: a project for youngsters between 16 and 29, from different social and cultural backgrounds. Participants are coached for two months, two days a week and will learn skills necessary to create a culture free of opposition, narcissism, fear and strategic games. Growing up in such an opposition culture that has been set as an example by many of today’s politicians, entrepreneurs and media, is leading to crises we are seeing today.
In Your Lab participants will learn the skills to lead the transition towards a culture based on: openness, empathy, integrity, interest.
Your Lab does not focus on the development of knowledge and skills alone. Building physical awareness through sports and nutrition is addressed as well.
This project is supported financially by SKAN Fonds and VSB Fonds. There is still a need for additional finance. Interested to participate or to support this project, please send me an email:email@example.com
Your Lab has an advisory board with: Herman Wijffels, Tex Gunning, Gonnie Been, Muriel Arts en Stef van Dongen.

ProLab is a coaching programm for professionals.
All too often we do not feel connected to others and to the earth. Thinking that we are separated can be extremely uncomfortable. We hold on to ideas, creating a position which is opposite to other positions, and this immediately leads to us playing a strategic game, trying to gain and win.
By looking deep inside ourselves we can start to overcome the illusion of seperateness.
Through examples from art, poetry and film, Pro Lab will explore the space in which both connectedness and individual expression arise.
