Flourish through awareness, compassion and purposeful action!
Hi there and welcome!
My name is Marjorie. Since 2015 with much pleasure and many rewards, I have been supporting groups and individuals through the practice of mindfulness and self-compassion.
My mission is for you to reconnect to who you really are, what is really important to you and empower you to gradually bring more of that into daily life.
In my work, I serve everyone who is open to discover or deepen a mindful approach to life and my audience ranges from students to mothers to high achieving professionals. I host workshops and courses in a variety of locations including my living room, yoga studios, companies and have an ongoing partnership with the Centre of Mindfulness.
I am a partner and mother of 2 equally amazing and challenging girls and I know what a huge transformation becoming a parent is. I feel very passionate about supporting expecting and new parents through this incredible life transition that as joyous as it may be, can bring a lot of stress and new challenges with it. On top of open groups, I offer mindfulness courses and workshops tailored to expecting and new parents as well as not so new parents:) I also work as a doula and childbirth educator to support expecting couples through pregnancy and the beauty and intensity of birth (mindfulness is a key component throughout). The practice of mindfulness proves invaluable as one navigates the up and downs of parenting (and sometimes juggling that with a return to work). Well-being and resilience are an essential foundation when we are in a caretaker role. Mindfulness definitely facilitates connecting to ourselves, our partners and our children with more presence and kindness.
My background is in the corporate world where I worked for 15+ years advising multinational brands such as Unilever, Heineken, Nike, etc. on their global communication strategy. I know well the challenges of working in a fast-paced, demanding environment and the threats that this can pose to balance and wellbeing. For this reason, it is also close to my heart to support a professional audience and I offer trainings, workshops and sessions tailored to business and individual needs. Mindfulness in the workplace can significantly enhance wellbeing, focus and performance, collaboration and creativity and keep stress at bay as well as prevent burn-out.
I am originally from France but spent more time abroad than there : I grew up in the U.S.A and lived many years in London and Milan before moving to the Netherlands where I have lived since 2009. Most of the courses I provide are in English language to accommodate for an international crowd as well as Dutch natives. I also host occasional courses in French and speak fluent Dutch and Italian.
I believe that more mindfulness is exactly what our often stressed out, modern world needs more of. Through looking within non-reactively we come into contact with what is best in us and can begin to move from struggling towards thriving, from overwhelm & stress to joy and walk through life empowered, present and full of unfolding potential.
My own practice supports me to live my life more consciously, more in harmony with my heart, my intuition and my feeling of what is right. It has radically changed the way I relate to myself and the world around me, and amongst many other things, has had a huge impact on my interaction with others.
