I work on the intersection of embodied presencing, choreographic and visual thinking tools, and design co-creation. I offer interventions, workshops, experiences, and research, to explore the unknown and the invisible sides of a problem, through the body movement/no movement approach, in combination with design thinking and systems thinking. My background is in interactive multimedia, graphic design/illustration, and dance/choreography. I was trained and worked as Project and Competency Coach for Design students, social design (real life), Industrial Design Department at the TU/e, Eindhoven, The Netherlands. I developed extracurricular assignments for the application of the language of the dancing body, improvisation and movement awareness, into the design research process. I’m a Certified GyrokinesisⓇ Teacher Trainer, which is a movement method that combines principles of Yoga, Dance, Tai-Chi, Chi-Kun, acupressure, and swimming. I’m a Vipassana Meditation practitioner and I’m following on the practice of Dhamma Art and the Social Presencing Theater, from the Presencing Institute. Alumnae from the Fall2020 Online Course "The Systems View of Life" from Fritjof Capra.
I have a strong belief in inner intuition, movement, and embodied awareness/interaction, as vital sources for creativity, wellbeing, and change.
I want to contribute to the awareness of embodiment into research, education, creation, science, technology and business practices, and I believe that UZAZU, is a State of the Art tool to reach this goal.
