Leadership Journeys

Each year I am leading Triple Flow Leadership Journeys to a remote, untouched and culturally-rich location in the Himalayas, an area of stunning beauty of authentic nature and culture. Since 2007 we have held leadership journeys to Tibet, China, Mongolia and Bhutan.

Our next journey will again be to the beautiful Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, where we will explore the various dimensions of Gross National Happiness. See for more information and registration www.flowfoundation.nl.

The journeys consist of an ‘outer’ dimension, exploring a unique culture and unknown part of the world, as well as an ‘inner’ dimension, shedding light on our minds and inner resources, in order to better access our natural capacities for more effective sustainable leadership in the world.

We are the witnesses through which the universe becomes conscious of its glory, of its magnificence.” – Alan WattsGijs-Tibet Leadership Journey 2007 001Gijs-Tibet Leadership Journey 2007 061

Sometimes people get the mistaken notion that spirituality is a separate department of life, the penthouse of existence. But rightly understood, it is a vital awareness that pervades all realms of our being.” – David Steindl-Rast

The universe is in a constant state of becoming— an ongoing miraculous creation. Every day we awaken to that miracle with gratitude, respect, and compassion for all who share the gift of being.”
