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.

Proches Mwanda safari cook

Proche

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.

Innocent jr

In Tanzania you immediately notice people have difficulty with taking initiative. There is a culture of waiting. So it really stands out when you meet an intelligent, authentic and very proactive young man. Innocent is full of creative and social inspired ideas. He lives together with his brother, who is even more innovative. Our Innocent is a young but inspired guide who will surprise you with his knowledge, captivating stories and of course he is a good and responsible driver. The best way to introduce Innocent is by sharing the words of a client:

“My guide Innocent, who has a degree in wildlife conservation and many years of experience conducting tours, is not only knowledgable and capable, but also a genuinely unique and interesting person”.
