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 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:

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.
