  • Description

    I am reshaping my life in a way that is meaningful for me. 4 years ago I travelled one year in South America and that journey never felt finished for me. Seeds were planted inside me; some of them vanished along the way taking back up my conscientious life in Belgium, and some of them matured and kept on blooming so exponentially that I cannot longer hold them back. So now I quit my job to return to the continent where I feel alive and light. This time less focused on travelling, but more on my inner journey.

    My journey is all about trying to live more with my heart instead of my head. Getting back in touch with my inner child, beyond self-limiting beliefs and patterns. I want to dedicate my time to my passions: hiking, dancing, being in nature, seeing mountains... I want to deepen my (self)discovery through yoga, meditation, writing, reading, therapy, circles... In general I aim to grow, to feel, to heal, to LIVE.

    My ideal volunteering project or place holds a good balance between connection & Self time. I can forget about time when I am having fun with other people or roll into deep conversations which enrich me with new insights and give me a sense of belonging and understanding. I am fascinated by how humans (inter)act, how relationships unfold and mirror ourselves. I am open to receive the richness of deeper connection (so not much small talk) with other beings, but I also need my alone time to connect with myself and Nature. Away from distractions and other energies, I can sink in myself.

  • More details about your skills

    Let's begin with the skills I don't have fully yet, as I'm more eager to learn about the unknown instead of following the known.

    I don't have a specific set of skills in eco, DIY and construction projects yet, but I am a handy and creative person with great technical insight. So that must be enough to say I have the skills to make it as a beginner. :) I do have green fingers but I need a bit of guidance.

    My communication and journalism skills are the ones I have been investing in for the last 4 years in my job and during my studies for another 5 years. I do copywriting, social media, videography, traveljournalism, photography and interviews. I love to give visual and verbal power to my outbursts of creativity, curiosity and out-of-the-box thinking. I mostly try to put intention, soul and metaphors in my creations.

    I have a warm and open heart for children. I was volunteering in a Youth Center in La Paz, Bolivia, where I gave dance classes to children and gave assistance to their homework. I also made a video for their platforms: https://marjoleinpuype.wordpress.com/2017/07/27/cejupa-bolivia/

    Oh, I'm also having the right organizational and tidiness skills for housekeeping, cleaning and working in a a bar or restaurant.

    I'm like an alchemist who transforms pain into wisdom. I find a lot of wisdom in quotes, so I wanna share some with you.

    *Car about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner.
