If you’re serious about living a life that is as healthy, happy and meaningful as possible, then expanding your knowledge about the science of flourishing is the foundation of doing so.

After all, the better you know what motivates you to make healthy life choices, what brings you joy and gives you a feeling of purpose, the more effectively you can take action to optimize your well-being.

Indeed, by learning more about yourself, it’s as if you’re gradually uncovering a dashboard full of buttons, dials and other controls that you can tweak to make your life significantly more satisfying.

“Lee’s course will help you connect to a realm of deeper understanding, fulfillment, contentment, ambition and happiness.”

“This program has helped me tremendously to sharpen my worldview and to improve my self-management capacities. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to understand and improve the quality of well-being in his or her life.”

       ~ Frans Vermeer

“I would recommend the Integral Flourishing course to anyone wanting to look deeply into themselves, while also learning about Integral Theory. Lee, the instructor, was so attentive to me and the other students and very systematically taught this theory in an organized way. Working with the other students was fun and very bonding. I enjoyed meeting others in this way–very different from a “normal” college course where competition, rather than cooperation is the norm! Thank you so much for the opportunity to share in this wonderful experience!”

My Teaching Background

At the age of 14, I had my first ever paying job as a homework tutor, teaching English to dyslexic pupils at my grammar school. 

Years later, while working as a physical therapist, it became clear to me how physical complaints are often the result of a lack of bodily awareness.

I also witnessed the relationship between various physical complaints and psychological well-being.

It became clear to me how much physical suffering human beings can avoid by learning to cultivate a healthy relationship with our body, our emotions, our thoughts and our beliefs.

As a result, I ventured more and more into education…

In-Person Teaching

  • Between 2001 and 2002, I taught a course in Bodily Awareness at the Dutch Waldorf College in Driebergen-Zeist.
  • Between 2015 and 2017, I taught 6 courses in health, well-being and self-development at the University of Amsterdam.
  • Between 2012 and 2017, I facilitated dozens of workshops within the Dutch healthcare and education sectors. 
  • Between 2015 and 2016, I taught two editions of a course titled The School of Transformation, focused on supporting personal development within a framework of Integral Theory.
  • In 2017, I also taught a stress management course for Ph.D students employed by the AMC (Academic Medical Centre) in Amsterdam.
