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.
The first meeting with Tuma was like a storm. He was very strongly present and direct in his wishes, which is very unusual in Tanzania. With Tuma you know what you are up to. During our safaris he showed himself a wonderful cook, a hard worker, a humorous storyteller, a passionate reporter of foodball games and a vivacious personality that brings aliveness in the team. Our clients love to hear his stories. Tuma is married and has two children. He lives in Arusha and he tries to save money to start a store for body care products to uplift his lifestyle. No doubt he is going to make it.
