Renaissance Soul | Game changer | Fire Starter | Filmmaker | International Master Tantric Trainer & Coach & Massagetherapist.

A lot. Yes, that’s me! My father used to tell me: you’re a true Homo Universalis. It took me until I was 40 to understand what he really meant. And what a huge compliment that was. It’s true. I was born with quite an amount of different talents. And I started group-hugging them around 10 years ago, when I became an entrepreneur.

So, here I go. I teach, train, coach (here) (and here), film (here) (and: here), write, massage (tantra: here) (at law firms: here), sing (here), paint (here), miracle morning walking (while coaching), run, live, love, laugh and learn with…your (and my) heart on my tongue. I am a creative, sensitive, silly, street-smart, queer, versatile, melancholic, ambitious go-getter. I am a true Renaissance Soul. And a serial solo-entrepreneur.

Also…I am still insecure in certain areas in my life, not always emotionally detached enough to not be upset about other people’s shitty behaviours, but if I am honest: I still wouldn’t trade my life with anyone. The highs and the lows: all me.

You are welcome. You’re welcome.

“Carolien is a true Renaissance Soul. If she is really interested she can learn almost anything!”

My drive is to optimise. (Me. You. The world) (Yes, in that order, I used to think it was the exact way around, but that really did not work). My talent is my growth mindset: to get most out of every situation and see that there’s always something to learn. (Always)(Always). My passion is to create. Possibilities. Ideas. Solutions. Art. Life.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Are you looking for a filmmaker?

My professional skills in filmmaking include: I know how to make people feel comfortable so I can capture their story naturally. I have an eye for detail without losing touch with the big picture. I think every interesting story deserves to be captured cinematographically well. May be that is why I like to control-freak my gear and understand everything about it: so I know what I can get out of it and get the results I wish. I own and work with Panasonic GH4 with primes mainly, I use professional Røde/Zoom audio equipment and Manfrotto stabilizers/rigs. For editing FCPx (…) —> read more here
