I wanted to share with you what has been going on the past couple of weeks. I know you have probably sensed some radio silence.. . In mid Jan, we had been working on creating a program that would inspire you on your journey and looking for collaborators that could support this dream we had. It is still the case, however, we came to the realisation a little before Chinese New Year that we might be rushing into things since a lot of the collaborators were not available in the short notice… Coming back from our respective Chinese New Year holiday, we remind ourselves of our main intention of being of service to you and offer a quality experience in your development journey and with that intention in mind, we decided it is wise to postpone it. The first idea was to do it in May, however, there were no availabilities left on the island.
So here I am writing to you with the same enthusiasm and possibly even more than the first day we launched this baby, to announce that we have set ourselves a new date end of September!!
Our next steps are to confirm the exact date with the island and then nothing is in our way to create the grandest Walkabout Festival this world has ever seen!
As we speak we are exploring with some prized collaborator the different types of workshops that can be offered during the festival. We are holding a session on the 25th of April to create a first draft. We will share with you our first draft because we will need your feedback and perspective. This is your event too!! Once we collect all your feedback, we will do another session in may and publish our final program.
So please mark your calendars and participate in the creation of this beautiful experience!!
We’ll keep you posted on our journey :)
Sending you tons of love!
When Michael first talked to me about this idea of his that has been brewing for a while, I immediately jumped in! It totally resonated with me and just the idea made my heart sing! Holding a safe space where people can be accompanied into their self-discovery through by different methods used by a wide range of collaborators. This was so exciting to me and an individual as well as a professional in what I do.
As a glimpse, I’m a warm wholehearted, compassionate space holder that helps guide, accompany and empower people on their life journey through the holistic approach of integral coaching with the support of various other practices such as somatic bodywork, singing bowl therapy to name a few. This holistic approach engages and helps connect mind, body and spirit to access your higher self and deepest most powerful potential.
Now this is just a fraction of me, and the beauty in life is that I'm ever changing, growing, unfolding to get to know more, about my story, you’ll just have to follow our blog or come meet us at the festival :)
2017. I remember the day Michael told me he wanted to organize Walkabout Now. His vision resonated a lot with what I do: help individuals, leaders and organizations become more conscious.
Fast forward to the end of 2018. We're catching up over lunch and I'm eating a delicious Phô when Michael tells me: "Remember Walkabout Now? It’s happening! Are you interested?" I felt a familiar warmth in my heart and I knew that was the answer, there was no need to think. Of course, I was in!
I guess the main reason is that I believe we need to raise our level of self-awareness. Most of us were never taught how to communicate, how to listen to our bodies, how to express our needs, how to set our boundaries or how to heal ourselves and that leads to a lot of suffering. In the workplace. At home. Within ourselves.
This need to grow and learn has become even more important as humanity is facing the biggest challenges of our time: our own survival.
But there is hope. I see more and more people around me who crave for more. More meaning. More impact. More fun. More love. They want a life worth living. Some give up. Some explore.
I chose to explore and all along this journey of self-discovery and growth I met fantastic people and received a lot from them. It’s time to give back and that's why I happily joined the team.
We need more events like Walkabout Now. Co-created. Emergent. Where everything is optional except respect, compassion and a desire to explore and grow. I’m grateful I was offered the opportunity to join such a wonderful team and I can’t wait to meet you on the island

After my visit of Pangkil Island early November, the dream started to become reality. It was love at first sight, the minute I stepped foot on the island, I knew it was the one. The vibe of the place was absolutely amazing the perfect place for a Walkabout. A part of the jungle on the island is intact, during my visit I couldn't help myself to take a barefoot walk in this energizing sanctuaries hearing the rhythm of the waves, feeling the softness of the land and leave under my feet, the smell of fresh salty air with every breath i took. Truly inspiring place. I can’t wait for you to discover it !
