Water is my meditation

I love… swimming, surfing (wave, kite, wind) and being near water (hearing waves crushing, seeing the sun reflected in the water, smelling the ocean.)

Whenever I need inspiration or energy….I need water. It cools me down, it clears my head > no matter if I am in extreme action (jumping over a wave with my windsurf board), swimming Kilometers of croll or sitting quietly on the beach.

That explains why I choose to live near the ocean (Cape Town, Scheveningen) and spent my free moments searching for the best conditions (as a beach guard, surfing, swimming outdoors)

Find below some of my water-related-posts…

My heart in Africa

My African brother(s and sisters)

From 2006 – 2010 I lived in South Africa. Many youngsters became like a brother or sister to me. We started the project Studentsforhumanity together. Today 2011 – the project continues without me being there. It gives me a warm feeling to know that the ones that I once taught are now inspiring peers to stand up and be great. Thank you guys/girls for taking that on!

Ephraim Ntlamo flee away from Zimbabwe, ended up in the Cape Town streets, but managed to stay out of trouble and through his dedicated nature organized sponsors and schooling for himself. Ephraim used to stay with me, I learned a lot from him (dedication, inspiration, politics, friendship). Please follow Ephraim on his own blog here

On Stage

Posted January 20th, 2008 in Portfolio by Frérieke

In life and on stage only barriers exist no impossibilities

Theater is a great tool to experience real life. In South Africa, I created an ‘art and leadership’ class, in which I used a lot of (improvisational) theater as structural or energizing exercises.

Besides that I love acting (read below some posts about the plays I participated in) and going to the theater (I used to work in a theater and could see the plays for free!).
