oneness with all life

De clou van een tevredener leven: de Cirkel van 4, start 3 November

Evert van de Ven

                                                        Life is:  making use of  free space in a creative way in the present moment


‘I consider you as a special human being with a very natural and reassuring way of working and with a very precious message to our fellow earth inhabitants.’Robert

Evert van de Ven (1960) is life coach (Zijnsoriëntatie and Zelf Kennis Methode) , writer (Het Kompas, 2011 en Een kennismaking met Eckhart Tolle, 2013) and speaker. He gives talks, workshops and trainings in The Netherlands and abroad. Over the last fourteen years his work has been strongly inspired through the encounters with Eckhart Tolle and he really loves to be together with other people to travel on this ‘road of what moves and inspires us’ together.

In his two books ‘Het Kompas’ and ‘Een kennismaking met Eckhart Tolle’ he writes about his own personal development and about the profound meaning of the Eckhart Tolle Teachings for our daily life.

Through his practical, heartwarming and humerous approach he really tickles our lust for life, by using clear excercisis and coaching we regain a clear view about our life and we rediscover the courage, the trust and the pleasure to live our day to day life with more contentment and less psycholgical suffering. One of the most important themes in his coaching is the ability to experience ‘free space’.

Evert says: “I often felt delighted during a simple game of football; a long ball could open up possibilities which were beyond imagination just a moment before.  As in football as in my profession as a Life Coach I’m together with people constantly in search of free space….opening up situations….changes of perpective…discovering space for creativity….Here and Now; to see and to experience the possibilities to create something new. All change originates Now and in free space, that’s our source of inspiration to live our life fully.”

Eckhart Tolle:”How to be at peace now? By making peace with the present moment. The present Eckhart en Evertmoment is the field on  which the game of life happeens. It cannot happen anywhere else. Once you have made peace with the present moment, see what happens, what you can do or choose to do, or rather what life does through you.”

Creating a new earth

I love music, people, travel, nature, stories, humour, food and sharing together; it gives me strength, energy, joy and inspiration. During a enjoyable workshop in Santorini Greece, in which we experienced all of these facets, I saw how beautiful these facets connect people and the powerful positive energy it gives when you experience that there is so much more which connects us than that which divides us. Within the simple experience of connecting with each other lies the powerful positive Live Now inspiration for something new. I am going to make a Journey from Hamburg to Santorini to share this Live Now inspiration with as many people possible, from 6 to 106 years of age, in as many places as possible. The inspiration experienced through a song, a dance, a story or a meeting teaches us a lot more about our life than we could have ever learned at school.


Creating a new consciousness

 Life isn’t as serious as your mind makes it out to be 

Weekend Workshops, Inspiration Circles, Stillness Walks and Stand-Up Talks form the core of The Power Flour Journey in which we feed and share our inspiration. In five clear, simple and concrete steps, we continually practice through the transition from the old to the new consciousness, from a reactive life lived from the head to a
creative life lived from the heart.

These 5 forms are:
1. storytelling,
2. dance and bodywork,
3. The Power of NOW Triad based on the Eckhart Tolle Teachings,
4. meditation and
5. sharing of self-backed Power Flour bread.

From this base we create the art and joy of living; the awareness of loving daily life for ourselves and the world around us.


Creating new ways

Letting go of your head and finding your heart step by step

Life is an adventure to share; we may wonder what we have to share: a lot! We can dance, we can talk, we can breathe; we can laugh and help someone else to laugh! We can bake, cut and share bread together. There are so many ways in which we can help each other:

Provide material

Financial support, each donation counts!

Be a travel companion for a couple of days or weeks

Participate in a Weekend Workshop, Inspirational Circle, Stillness Walk or Stand-Up Talk

Produce a Weekend Workshop, Stillness Walk or a Stand-Up Talk

I need people who want to take part in this Journey, each in his or her way, near or far, directly or indirectly; to show and celebrate that we can create a new earth.


Creating the change

Born to be the change: we can only take your first step Now 

From 29 April 2018 to 30 September 2018, The Power Flour Journey travels from Kekerdom-Netherlands, via Hamburg – Germany to Santorini – Greece (zigzagging through 12 countries over 16.000 kilometres) and I love to meet as many small and larger groups as possible in all these countries (see schedule below). During this journey it is possible for you (!) to organize/produce a Weekend Workshop, Stillness Walk or Stand-up Talk. 

Weekend workshops will be organized in Linz(Austria) and Athens(Greece). These workshops will offer you a beautiful, life changing and deeply inspiring combination of Eckhart Tolle Teachings (Evert van de Ven) and 5Rhythms dance meditation (Caroline van de Ven, Accredited 5RTeacher). If you would like to produce an additonal weekend workshop, please get in touch with me!

One day Inspirational Circles already take place in Heerlen (NL) and Düsseldorf (BRD) and are scheduled for the rest of the journey;  you can still join these circles.

Stand-up Talks take 2-3 hours and consists of five parts: storytelling, bodywork and dance, The power of NOW Triad, meditation and sharing of self-baked Power Flour bread. The organizer/producer of the talk takes care of space, people, route and a € 150 fee per talk.

A Stillness Walk consists of a meditation of 15 minutes and a walk of max. 10 kilometers. The organizer/producer of the walk takes care of space, people, route and a € 10 fee per person.

(All activities will be offered in English, Dutch or German) 

Creating support

Lighting your fire for a new earth

For The Journey I need a budget of € 24,000, – for fuel and the hire of a van, PR material, preparation costs, rent for venues, the purchase of bread ovens and mobile music equipment; these supplies could also be donated or loaned to the Power Flour Journey. A part of the amount will be collected from the Workshops, Inspirational Circles, Stillness Walks and Stand-Up talks, but I will mostly need that for my daily costs for food and overnight stays.  Crowd funding is a vital part of raising supplies and money.
I would be grateful for your support!
