I believe in the power of balance between man and nature based on our accountability to the world we live in. My focus on ancient paths of Zen and Tao combined with my business knowledge brings old and new wisdom together for desired harmony.

The Earth is an abundant planet, prosperous with its 7 seas. We are here to enjoy the marvellous wonders of the world. I believe this brings with it the role of stewardship and personal accountability.

My mission, and the purpose of all my activities is to contribute to Earth’s revival.

Bodhi Svaha


Jolinda van Hoogdalem, Bas Gemmink and me, hopelessly try to provide an explanation. And somehow a lemon cake is part of our attempt.

“The heart of the matter: compassion and wisdom together…”
