Rebirth I

The 100 Day Warrior II has come to an conclusion. The second group was tougher for me than the first group. There were quite a few challenging moments. Sometimes I have doubted my capabilities and I had concerns about our progress. But then the magic happened and everything feel into place. During our last ceremony there were no walls, no barriers and no fear. Everybody was connected, open and present. We entered the process as strangers, we came out as friends. Everybody had changed on the inside and on the outside. To ignite such a process and witness the outcome fills me with gratitude.

Day 3: Random Things That Made Me Happy Today

Just a couple of random things that made me feel happy today:

– I flirted with the barista of the coffee place near to my new work place. And she made me a great cappuccino in return.
– My interior design and branding warriors are helping me with advice how to make my new space into a nice workspace. I feel very grateful for their help.
– My mom helped my pick out curtains (which were approved by the aforementioned design police) and we had fun doing it.
I am receiving very positive feedback from participants who are happy with their trainers. Makes me feel proud of the guys.

Eps 99: Winter Solstice

main

Today is the shortest day of the year and we are at the beginning of a new cycle. In our longest night, our deepest darkness, is where springs our new sparks of hope and our eternal inner fire is rekindled again. Tomorrow we celebrate the rebirth of the sun. Today is also day 99 of the 100 Day Warrior. Tomorrow we celebrate the birth of the warriors; our last day obviously being a new beginning. How beautiful. I didn’t plan it like that on purpose and I am a sucker for such symbolism.

Eps 95: Warrior Training Improves Sex Life (Not Kidding)

There is a small but important difference between the benefits that I expected the 100 Day Warrior would bring to the participants and the benefits that they are experiencing. One of the effects I didn’t foresee is this one: the 100 Day Warrior training will improve your sex life.
Some of my participants have been dropping hints. And apparently they have been dropping their hints also outside of the locker room and the meditation hall at Evolve. Because my phone has been ringing and new participants are signing up.

Tommy

I asked a handful of people from the creative industry to send me questions that they would like to be answered by the participants of the 100 Day Warrior. Out of approximately 30 questions I selected 13 that seem to cover most of the curiosity of most followers. Sanne went first, Esther was the second to answer them. If you are curious about what Sanne said, you can click here. But now hear what Tommy’s experience has been so far

Eps 89: Before You Die, Please Live A Little

Happy dj

Most men die at 25… we just don’t bury them until they are 70. Benjamin Franklin Benjamin Franklin himself died in 1790. Assuming that he really said this, it is a quite famous quote, it must have been some time before death. So the observation that most people don’t live their full potential is older […]

Eps 87: The Unmistaken Child

Unmistaken-Child-Poster-1

I really don’t know what to think of reincarnation. Intuitively I believe in it, rationally I can’t get my head around the idea. But I know that the rational mind is limited and I also know that my intuition hasn’t fully matured yet. I’ve had experiences in meditation that felt like glimpses of past lives […]
