Who is Maria?

I love the power of touch. It's a necessity of life. Touch sometimes moves much more than words. I like to offer people a safe place where nothing is necessary, where they can be completely themselves, and where they can be touched. These beautiful encounters with others give me energy and inspiration.

The way of love

Self-examination and bodywork have become an important part of my life. I find it valuable to live and feel consciously, and to discover what is 'true' for me. I have grown in awe of my body and the wisdom it stores. I am learning to trust my gut. While old thoughts and patterns lose their grip on me, I can surrender more and more to the flow of life. This gives more happiness, freedom, pleasure and energy. It is the way of living from love. A beautiful road that I can learn daily, with trial and error. From my own experience I like to support others on this path.

A new direction

I've always been curious about the world, about other people, about myself. After my studies in Cultural Anthropology, I kept looking for what I really wanted to do. I have followed my heart and have taken a different path. I have followed courses at Holos Academy for Massage Therapy, and the School for Holistic Pulsing. I also have years of experience as a freelance masseur and I give massages at retreats. I am also very concerned with self-development, spirituality and consciousness. I do this through courses, workshops, books and meditation and silence retreats. I am inspired by spiritual teachers such as Erik van Zuydam and Jeff Foster.
