We blend business & spirituality in a down-to-earth way to revolutionize how we live & lead.

Founded in 2020,  we facilitate safe spaces, online & offline, to be vulnerable, and brutally honest. We dare people to dream and free themselves from what is holding them back. With humour, because that brings relief, and relief creates space for healing. 

 

We integrate Psychology, Behavioural Sciences Physiology, Neuroscience, Buddhism, Taoism, Ayurveda, Stoicism, and Indigenous wisdom into next-level programs & retreats that have empowered 100s of founders & leaders to BE ON. PURPOSE

Resulting in incredible shifts in health, relationships, work, or life circumstances.

Now that is a ripple effect
we intend 
to spread.

"INVEST IN YOURSELF. BUILD REGENERATIVE HABITS. YOU ARE THE MOST VALUABLE TOOL YOU WILL EVER OWN."

I was in my own way whenever I acted in accordance with what I was "supposed to do". In my mission to meet the expectations of others, I was (unconsciously) proving & pleasing my way through life. My ego looking for guarantees, validation & avoiding rejection. 

It was never enough (to me). I ignored my gut feeling in key decisions. It left me feeling stuck, frustrated & drained. It negatively affected my work, my health & my relationships.

I have learned a calmer way of being powerful. Not with control, tension, and unproductive drive, but through trust, and real connection with myself, others & nature.

Learning how to work with myself; my strong energy (hyper, joy, anger, downs) has been a game-changer for me.

To know how I can create the right conditions for my bold, wise, kind, true self to rise to the occasion (vs ego on the steering wheel).

I continue to question the way I live & work. Growing the inner space to be me, unapologetically. Proudly, I can say, I have designed my life, on purpose. I live off-grid, on a small homestead, understanding to natural ecosystems. 

My role is to share (new) ways of viewing the world. More specifically, that change is a constant, the emerging future of regeneration, self-organization, human leadership, and viewing people as generally good, just sometimes stuck in an ego pattern or old story.

MATT NELISSEN
ORG. ARCHITECT, WORKSHOP FACILITATOR, BREATHWORK COACH 

Matt (75) has been a certified breathwork coach and practitioner for the past 10 years, guiding people to heal old traumas stored in the body that limit their full potential.  

 

He is an engineer by degree, and a learner at heart. He has guided many large companies through cultural transformations, always putting the people at the heart of change. In those 40 years he experienced more & more that "It's not about changing minds, it's about changing hearts". He is fascinated by why some companies are buzzing of energy & innovation, and others are filled with apathy or even toxicity. In his view, making room for passion is key.

 

And it's not only our environment that can limit this passion, or freedom of expression, it's also within ourselves. Breathwork has been an approach for him to free himself of old rigid beliefs that kept him stuck, fearful or doubting himself. It's been a lifetime journey from not breathing when he was born, to allowing himself to breathe, to take up space, to follow his heart. 

 

His energy is calm, open, and focused. He is known to create safe spaces for open dialogues. Matt has been rowing at a world-class level for the past 55 years and started Karate at 56, and now has a black belt & 4th dan degree. He is a living example of never being too old to learn, or pursuing your passion.
