self awareness

I grew up in my formative years in Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa and in my teens traveled to the middle-east and later the Netherlands. I was exposed at an early age to art and the power of the mind, which I however chose to set aside. After a colourful life, going from owning my own advertising agency and silkscreen shop to studying theoretical computer science, I gave up my career in the business world and got involved in development aid in higher education, which took me to Africa, later Bolivia, Curaçao, and then I ended up for some years again in Cape Town.

My own transformation came about gradually, though sometimes abruptly, like discovering almost overnight that I could do life-like portraits in oil paint and later discovering the power of self-hypnosis and regression, re-framing and finding my way back to myself.

I have now chosen to dedicate myself to the pursuit of inner understanding and offering what I have discovered to others, with the hope that it will benefit them in the pursuit of a meaningful, happy, abundant life as much as it has me.
