Mindfulness program

More peace, clarity and leadership in 1 month

Are you ambitious and is it time for your next step in Awake Leadership?
Do you notice that the old leadership is mainly focused on content, context and results?
Does this no  longer give you the success and satisfaction you are looking for?

Would you like to learn more about the human side and how this contributes to results and well-being? Awake Leadership starts with you and is essentially about who you are. It requires you to know yourself well. Raising your level of consciousness is essential in this. Self-knowledge on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level helps you to manage yourself from your deep core. By going within you will find your authenticity and you can contribute to the greater whole from a sense of purpose, powerful and vulnerable.

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom

Do you want more peace, clarity & leadership?

Awake Leadership is about doing from the quality of being. Having conscious attention and making conscious choices in your own behaviour sounds easier than it is. A large part of our behaviour arises from subconscious patterns and beliefs. We often overlook ourselves or hold ourselves back in some way. Then we experience less success or satisfaction than is possible. Getting to know your own thoughts, feelings and emotions better is enlightening. You learn to observe how your behaviour arises. This allows you to make more conscious choices and do more based on who you are in essence.

Inner work. Outer impact.

It is really nice to get to know yourself better on deeper levels

As a small child I loved the silence very much. I liked to crawl behind the curtain to listen to my breathing. I knew nothing about meditation then. My first papers were about Asia, monasteries and monks in orange dresses.

When I flipped myself up side down in the corporate world, I was intuitively drawn back to meditation and I was instantly fascinated. How could it be that from so much stress and restlessness in my head and body, I was calm and clear again in just a few minutes of meditation?


Develop your ‘quality of being’ and choose more and more consciously for who you are in essence and that which is really important to you.



I completely immersed myself in it and my search took me, amongst other places, to India, where I learned the essence of meditation. In San Francisco, I became a trainer in the ‘Search Inside Yourself’ program, developed at Google, which highlights the business application and scientific basis of mindfulness. In my hometown Amsterdam, I met Wim Hof ​​(The Iceman) and became one of his first trainers, before he became world famous.

Awake Minds is a very effective mindfulness program. Nicely modern and practical, so that it helps you to create success and satisfaction. And you can enjoy more!

Simone has been more than a facilitator. She has been the guiding light taking the group through the incredible journey  of understanding what mindfulness is and how practicing could have an extremely positive impact in our lives. We felt grateful to have the opportunity to learn from her experience. She has demonstrated such a professional and, at the same time, such a human approach, that we forgot we were in a training session. It has been really a life changing moment for most of the people in the room and we will be always thankful for having the opportunity to meet her.”

Senior Manager Learning & Development


Simone has conducted a series of online workshops 'Three Strategies for a Strong Mind'. The workshops were extremely well received. The format was very engaging and informative. Simone has a quiet strength that simultaneously puts people at ease and draws them into the story, which can be difficult virtually. Participants have reported that the workshop has given them very practical strategies to increase their resilience, that they have been able to put this into practice and experience clear benefits.

The Search Inside Yourself training I took with Simone gave me great tools, both work and private related. This is a must for everyone that is looking for a more balanced life or is struggling. SIY provides a mindset that makes you resilient in many situations and phases in your life. A very good basis to  step back, adjust and move forward. Simone is a very clear communicator and engages you step-by-step.

In a modern company culture, mindfulness has an important role to play in associates health and company achievements. Simone has helped us to roll-out the Search Inside Yourself program and supported us in the success we have seen with the sessions. The program is packed with scientific findings to illustrate the benefits of mindfulness and emotional intelligence. It has been exciting to work with Simone to realize how powerful mindfulness can be in a work environment. Simone always comes with great positivity, ready to improve the processes and fresh ideas to ensure the best outcome. We have educated more than 500 participants in PVH and heard a lot of positive feedback from associates, many seeing the program as a gift.

Simone is a modern spiritual guide with a tailor-made approach. She provides a comfortable safe space for her clients to share their challenges. The way she explains sometimes difficult concepts in simple, easy-to-understand terms has been very insightful. Simone brings relevant advice and ‘food for thought’ on how to live life in the way that we want.

The Awake Leadership training contributes to both the personal and professional developments of our employees and leaders. They received new tools to listen consciously and to connect with their surroundings in an attentive way. Also really being heard. This stimulates the emotional side of leadership and generates a part of increasing awareness. Thank you for the very valuable training Simone!

Simone gave an Effective Teaming workshop to my team. She helped us rethink our ways of working. We build a common agreement together on how to build more trust. We all learned a lot form it and very much appreciated the discussions raised. Thank you, Simone!

In times of hybrid work models, team efficiency in regards on how to engage and build trust is ever more important. Simone's approach of marrying strong concepts with awareness works great. This training made a real difference for the team!

Simone is very strong in looking at the individual and to know what this person really needs, She is capable of going into the depths with you to shine light on the underlying issues to transform them. I can honestly say that all private sessions with her have been worth every euro. Her personal approach and corporate background make Simone the ideal coach in these times in which we all look for a new balance.
