After working for years as meditation teacher and therapist in the Netherlands, (naturopath, bodywork, breathwork, hypno-and regression therapy, Clarity Proces and counselor/coach), I ended up unexpectedly in Tanzania. After an inspiring search on the spiritual and therapeutic market between 1985 and 2004, I came in touch with the Clarity Proces of Jeru Kabbal. I practised his teachings on a daily basis for six years. This changed my way of looking at life radically. In essence I learned to make a sharp distinction between the world perceived from the perspective of our mind and the world as it shows itself from the perspective of our senses. Our mind follows a script which is programmed in early years and endlessly repeats itself, even if reality is totaly different. The adventure life in fact is, gets lost in the compulsive need for security. By learning to see through it, I freed myself from this script, jumped into the unknown and found myself back in an exciting African Adventure. In 2013 I founded the unique safari company that Mindful Adventure is right now.
Within Mindful Adventure I get the opportunity to connect my love for spiritual clarity, my involvement with Masaï in Ngorongoro and my respect for pure nature to inspire others, who are on their way to rediscover themselves as free human beings.
Proche is sitting in his cooking tent, protected to the wind, that can be strong in the evening at the campsite. I am looking at the chaos of food and drinks around him. Proche sits proud and calm, amidst of all of this and fabricates one lovely and healthy meal after another. He knows exactly where everything is and has good attention for the hygiene. A safari cook is working hard. In the morning is gets up first, and in the evening he is the last one to go to bed. After dinner, he often has to prepare next days lunch. I have great respect for him and I am glad that the quiet, friendly, cooking wizard Proche is part of the team of Mindful Adventure.
