Me with the Great Aletsch Glacier (Switzerland) in the background.

I’m an entrepreneurial, all-round experiential coach and trainer residing in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I’m also a facilitator of change, design and futures thinking and co-owner of Business Being Human, an experiential boutique change agency. I’m holding a MA in Art History. I love hiking in the mountains, woods or flatland, sailing, cooking and gardening. Now and then I facilitate hiking journeys of self discovery in nature. The Walden Post is a hobby project for me. All I want is to inspire others and to become inspired about self sufficient living and maintaining a sustainable lifestyle. You’re welcome to connect with me on Linkedin.

Why Walden?

My great-great granduncle Jan van Dok
My great-great granduncle Jan van Dok (1865 – 1956).

In 1910 my great-great granduncle Jan van Dok had plans to participate in Frederik van Eedens Walden Colony or Community in North Carolina, USA. Due to circumstances this community never really took off. Years ago this story, when I first heard about it, and Henry David Thoreau’s book Walden; or Life in the Woods, gave me the inspiration to deep dive into cooperations, edible gardens and self sufficient living. But I never brought my ideas and learnings to life. During Covid-19 these ideas came into fruition.

Mission

I believe Covid-19 will act as a catalyst for the localization and sustainability movement. With The Walden Post, I want to make a positive contribution to this movement.
