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. My audience ranges from students to mothers to high achieving professionals. My workshops and courses are hosted in a variety of locations including my living room, yoga studios & in businesses. I have an ongoing partnership with the Centre of Mindfulness.
Amsterdam has been my home since 2008. I live here with my South African partner and my 2 girls. Since becoming a mother for the first time in 2010, I know what a huge transformation becoming a parent is. I feel passionate about supporting expecting parents through this incredible life transition that is becoming a parent. As joyous as it may be, it’s a huge adjustment that can bring a lot of stress and new challenges. Therefore, I also offer mindfulness courses and workshops tailored to expecting parents to prepare mindfully for birth and well beyond. To support couples throughout their birth journey, I have further trained as a birth doula. Mindfulness is an invaluable practice to find calm in the midst of the intensity of birth. These tools also prove invaluable as one navigates the up and downs of parenting. 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. 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.
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.
