Stories

We interview people in search of stories about living an authentic life, at your own pace. This could be the guy buying a piece of land after graduating, the entrepreneur bringing his dreams and ideals to the world, the healer guiding people through their final phase of life, or the woman who flourishes when living in Bali for half of the year. Everyone has their own road to travel and is somewhere else on that road… but what the stories all have in common is that these people try to be as true to themselves as possible.

We collect these stories to show everyone, and in particular people with low energy levels, what happens when you stay true to yourself in the choices you make. When dealing with low energy levels this is extra necessary and not always easy. Especially when others are running so much faster than you and when you don’t always find support from the people around you to think outside the box. This is why we are gathering these examples.

We hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as we enjoyed interviewing these beautiful people!
