PAUL BERGER

Whether he’s out tour-skiing, mountain biking or langlaufen, Paul infuses anything around him with positive energy. Paul believes that the best decisions are not taken by cognitive notions, but by a deeper intuitive intelligence.

Influenced by Jungian psychology and Eastern philosophy, Niek offers a holistic approach to wellbeing, guiding individuals on journeys of self-awareness and growth, helping them find peace and strength within.

LIV STIG

HEAD OF AKADEMIA

Liv believes in the incredible power of psychedelics as a tool to bring people back into their bodies and make them listen to their bodily wisdom. She teaches people this through Ayurveda, Tantra, Breathwork and Psychedelics. Just a few of her long list of passions. Currently, she’s combining her event production skills and healing capacities as Spinoza’s Head of Akademia with much passion, joy, and love for the medicine(s) of nature.

JOCHEM LAAN

HEAD OF DIGITAL

As a true jack of all trades, Jochem has always been exploring new and different ways to express and experience. Whether it is through his (digital) creative work, reading the old teachers, or one of the nature-oriented sports he practices. Whilst working for Spinoza, he fell in love with conscious connected breathing, with which he aims to help others to rediscover their true nature and regain peace and joy.

VIOLA GROENHART

CONTENT CREATOR

Viola has been guiding people inwards for over a decade - through visual art, yoga, meditation, somatic movement, breathwork and, more recently, ceremony. She is fascinated by our complex minds, the intelligence of our bodies, the beauty of our hearts and the awareness that underlies it all. She sees that life comes with its share of struggles, but that just might have something to tell us. To her, looking deeply within is one of the most beautiful, important and transformative journeys we can make in this lifetime.”
