I came to Portugal to live in nature and develop my creative and healing work and live a healthy off grid living.
My creative work involves with wool in always different forms.
I love to take a fleece from the sheep in my valley where i live, or from sheep from my family in Holland.
From this fleece i spin it into wool and love spinning the wool as i find it for me as a meditation.
I like to dye the wool with natural plants from the land. After this begin the exciting creative process to turn the wool in different creative products. Using knitting or croche or feltwork.
Another part of my life is healingwork. This can be with essentinal oils, feetreflexiologie, sound. I do this also online as an individual basis.
I start the day with sunrise Agnihotra "little fire- meditation".
