"A forester does not need to put a tree in the seed; his or her work is to nurture the seed and help to bring the tree out of it."

Working with nature and people is for Monica the best way to enjoy her days. Like outdoor coaching with children, life coaching in nature, teamwork, nature games and coaching a group of people with the help of horses. Experiencing nature in all kind of levels, learning from nature. And to use it as a mirror for the inner world.

Monica loves to tell all kinds of stories around herbs, trees and plants. As a horticulture teacher, she also loves to work in the garden and teach everything about it.

In the Netherlands, Monica helps with the oganising of the Dutch EDE and other kind of projects for sustainability for both schools and NGO's. Monica's big wish is to help to start up GAIA schools in the Netherlands and to support GAIA schools in general.

"Creativity comes from Silence." Jean Klein

vincenzo trainer web

I was filled with concepts and opinions until the day I felt lost and suffocated. Life then introduced me to a traditional Non Dual perspective in 1985 and I began to forget.

Today I discover myself holding the intent of uniting inner work with service to the world. In bridging inner and outer work, I explore my growing edge and this keeps me honest. I believe in continuous education and I am passionate about everything that promotes the integration of the fragmented self, communities and life systems.

In 2008 I began to explore the field of trauma and discovered ways to bring mending to myself and to the world. It is an art, a science and a practice that sustains everything I do. It also helps me to remember that happiness is our real nature.

“The teacher is of course an artist, but being an artist does not mean that he or she can shape the students. What the educator does in teaching is to make it possible for the students to become themselves.” Paulo Freire
