About The Teacher

Paul is a philosopher, massage therapist and expert meditation teacher. He was born in The Netherlands but spend the last years mostly living abroad. With Merel he has been running meditation courses in India, Portugal, Thailand and The Netherlands.
He studied meditation and Eastern philosophies while living in meditation communities in India and Australia. After seeing many teachers (and charlatans), he clearly saw the benefits and traps of the different spiritual teachings. Through his incessant curiosity and with the honest input of some teachers, he recognized the source of confusion and suffering. Consequently he realized the meaning of clarity and liberation. This is when he started to share his passion for meditation.
He has a bachelor's degree in teaching and has a Master's degree in sociology. His main focus of study was social psychology, philosophy and lifestyles.
Paul is a certified Osho Meditation facilitator (Osho International Meditation Resort, Pune, India).
Next to teaching meditation, he also works as a certified massage therapist and had more than 300 hours of training in various disciplines: rebalancing, aryuvedic yoga massage, Thai massage and Myofascial Chi-Release.
