Marije - Openhand Facilitator


An explorer of life would probably best describe me. I have always been searching for a deeper truth behind my experiences in this lifetime and the reason why I am here. That journey hasn't always been easy and has taken me through deep valleys, but also over beautiful mountain tops, step by step uncovering the authentic flow of my soul in the process. And there is still so much more to explore and discover, such as how to express myself more authentically and vulnerably, rather than through filters of internal distortion and conditioning! When my explorations led me to the shores of the Openhand website, there was immediately a deep resonance and sense of coming home.

My personal journey has led to a passion for the connection between body, mind and soul, particularly all the subconscious pain, trauma and patterns that are hidden within our bodies and that are getting in the way of the authentic flow of our soul. I am also fascinated by the crucial difference between approaching challenges in our lives by merely thinking about and analyzing them with our mind versus feeling into and working through them within our bodies. In my experience the former can easily keep us stuck spinning around in circles, whereas the latter is more likely to penetrate and break through the heart of the problem.

Drawing upon my own life path and experiences, I am now available to hold a space for others to go deep within their being in order to explore and unravel blockages that disrupt the authentic flow of their soul, and eventually unleash the magical essence of who they truly are! Generally, I am known for my down-to-earth, no-nonsense approach, which includes a high level of (self-)honesty and modesty.

My service

My facilitation sessions are based on my personal approach that I have named ‘inner growth facilitation’, which is inspired by a blend of my intuition and different techniques that I have gained over the years through different teachings and trainings. The two most influential ones being the Openhand approach and the Amanae training progamme. Amanae is a type of bodywork that helps in releasing stuck emotions and incorporates intuitive touch with conscious breathing to bring the stuck emotional energy back into our consciousness so that you can work through it and let it go.

Inner growth facilitation is about uncovering the authentic flow of your soul, the essence of your being, through a guided and intuitive exploration, to establish a greater sense of authentic embodiment. During a session, we explore and unravel internal blockages that disrupt your natural flow and break through these limiting patterns, in order to realign you with the essence of who you really are. I am also experienced in assisting clients to deal with energetic entities and implants should they emerge during a session. The emphasis during a session is on feeling into the body and what it has to tell or reveal, and less on what the mind might have to say about it.

If my profile resonates with you, then do feel free to get in touch! I offer facilitation sessions either face-to-face in Lilongwe, Malawi or over Skype, in both Dutch or English. Check my website for more information:

My suggested contribution per session is €60/h, but I am able to offer concessions where needed.

Stage 2 Facilitator

If you're looking for humility, honesty and integrity in your journey, then Marije will be able to reflect that to you in abundance. The path can be a confusing journey. And the most important thing is to be fully present and honest with where you're now at. The forwards can only begin with this profound self honesty. And that's why Marije can help greatly in this regard - because she's totally honest about reality. Remarkably, at the same time, this is impossibly (almost!) blended with an incredible multidimensional expansion. In this regard, Marije is a powerfully empathic bridge into higher dimensions, embodying both the sensitive skills of deep empathy, and the activation gifts of the catalyst. In working with Marije, you'll be met exactly where you are, and gently empowered into higher dimensional experience.... Open


It's wonderful to have you join the facilitator network Marije. It's beautiful the way you blend the qualities of the gentle empath, yet the activating skills of the catalyst. I know you'll be of profound help to the people you work with.

Very best wishes

Open heart


Love your exquisite energy Marije! You bring forth depth, immense sensitivity and a natural way of beingness that uncovers and breaks down realities that don't serve.

And totally love your web site! A true wanderer - inner and outer!

Looking forwards to seeing you again. 

love and blessings for your new ventures xx


Dear Marije,

So thrilled to see you here sharing your dynamic gifts! I adore your inquisitiveness and open heart. Many will be blessed to work with you! Best wishes on this new part of your adventure! Much love, Jen

Hi Marije,

Great to see you here officially. Exciting times, yes? :-)

From our impromptu sessions I can say that you've got a knack to ask just the right questions - questions that open up a blind spot or shine a light onto the distortion that will show ego's precious constructions for what they are. It's uncomfortable and painful and liberating. And awesome.


(I feel compelled to add "Go boldly where none have travelled" here, so)


Hey Marije!  

It's great to see you on here - my facilitator partner in crime!  

One thing that has struck me while working with you is just how much you care.  Any work you do comes from an authentic yearning to be there for people and do the best you can for them.

Big hug!







Dear all,

It is heart warming to read all your beautiful words of support! I feel very blessed to be here and at same time I am very excited to see how this new adventure is going to unfold!

With love heart


Nice going Marije! Just read your website and it’s wonderful to finally understand why you were so big on each of us having our own experiences at Tofo. You truly are modest and I’m just glad you intrigued me enough for me to save going through your profile for a night like this. sometimes it all feels rather daunting, but just thinking of the knee slapping laughs we shared, it will be interesting to grow and definitely reach out as time goes and the time feels right. Its such a great comfort knowing that you’re just a button away. so glad to have met you girl and vele I am looking forward. Authentic Flow Fo Sho! OneLove!
