Mundo Resink – discovering and sharing freedom in our relationship to money and life

“In the past I have tried to make my life a product that would make me enough money. I don’t want to live this way anymore. I don’t work anymore, not like I did before. I work much better now. Who I am, where I’m from, and what I do, I discuss in my book Geld Gaat Nooit Over Geld.”

Marloes Telle Mindfulness trainer, at the Ministry of Education, Culture, and Science

Mindfulness is about being present in your own life. I believe that it helps people to feel more connected to their own life when they are making choices from a place of clarity, freedom, and power, in stead of from a place of (societal) expectations and obligations, and the stress that comes with them.”

After completing her Master in Literary Studies, Marloes worked at the Humanities faculty of Utrecht University, as an information officer at NWO, and as a speechwriter of the minister of Education, Culture, and Science. She has started giving mindfulnes training in 2014, and has started doing this at the ministry of Education, Culture, and Science in 2016.
