We’re working to create the next step in human evolution.

A shared joyful reality will only arise when humans take the next step in evolution: wake up, take true responsibility for themselves and become inside-out creators.

But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top_multiplier=”” rc_heading_color=”dark” rc_link_color=”primary-1″ rc_link_hover_color=”primary-3″ rc_bg_type=”color” rc_bg_color=”#ffffff” rc_font_color=”#000000″][vc_column width=”1/4″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”6374″ name=”Laurens Vehmeijer” heading=”link-text” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”6375″ name=”Nanda Vehmeijer” heading=”link-text” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”6716″ name=”Joel aan ‘t Goor” heading=”link-text” identity=”Founder” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″ social_linkedin=”https://www.linkedin.com/in/joel-aan-t-goor/” email=”joel@awakeorigins.com”][vc_tta_accordion c_icon=”chevron” active_section=”” collapsible_all=”true”][vc_tta_section title=”Read more” tab_id=”1567176251580-64134b47-c99c”][vc_column_text]I am a mix of a psychologist, author and entrepreneur. In my late twenties I founded OPEN Business Leaders, a cross sectoral network of more than 700 leaders and entrepreneurs of large and medium sized companies. When I got fed up with my ‘work hard, play hard’ lifestyle I started to crack the code of reality and awakened to a deeper, profound and more joyful reality. This personal transformation intensely changed my experience of life and my view on leadership and entrepreneurship.

I believe conscious leaders, entrepreneurs and creators will act as a catalyst to manifest the desired transformation on earth. The thing I love to do most? Do what I came here for and play my part in establishing the tipping point for transformation: waking up and connecting 10% of all influential creators, entrepreneurs and leaders and creators in the world. I wrote The Journey to your Origin and launched the World Consciousness Forum.

But first and foremost I founded Awake Origins, an international movement for awake and purpose driven leaders. A tribe of next level, inside out creators that dare to truly look inside and will brighten up the future of humanity.

I have always found it difficult to find my own Purpose. I never really knew what I wanted. And after finishing my study in communication I still had no clue. I have always been interested in personal development and psychology. On a crossroad in my life, my colleague (and brother) Joel told me he came across a great scan which really helped him find clarity and meaning. It was the Purpose Scan. The scan also helped me make sense of my personal software and helped me understand myself better. I felt right away there was more for me behind this. I followed my heart, and went ALL IN for Awake Origins! 🙂

I love Psychology, working with/on personal development and playing different kinds of (strategic) games. In a way, as an entrepreneur, I’m playing with all these different aspects within Awake Origins, which is great! My main focus is working with the Purpose Scan. It’s an amazing tool and I’m grateful and amazed to see the impact it has up close on others as well.

Playing around with moving images and sound made me realize it was the best way I could communicate. Since then, I’ve been fascinated with creating videos.

From working in a media house focused on festival aftermovies, to making personal projects of my own, I have always tried to grow creatively. I believe the audiovisual language is an art that still has much to be discovered and through it, I believe we can communicate deeper ideas.

While in Brazil, I felt a single country had too many limits for my ambitions and with that in mind, I left for the Netherlands looking for a new challenge. Little after I arrived, I was meeting with Joel and Reinout for a position and just couldn’t believe how much I related to Origins’ purpose. With space to explore new ideas, we’re trying to show the world our message.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][crocal_team image_size=”square” image=”10962″ name=”Eleonora Sitovich” heading=”link-text” identity=”Event Coordinator and Support” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top_multiplier=”” rc_heading_color=”dark” rc_link_color=”primary-1″ rc_link_hover_color=”primary-3″ rc_bg_type=”color” rc_bg_color=”#ffffff” rc_font_color=”#000000″][vc_column width=”1/5″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”10901″ name=”Ewout van den Dool” heading=”link-text” identity=”Circle Facilitator / Purpose Scan Coach” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”9735″ name=”Michael Dawkins” heading=”link-text” identity=”Facilitator / Navigator” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”9721″ name=”Esther de Kruijk” heading=”link-text” identity=”Facilitator / Navigator” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”10387″ name=”Gijsje Pothoff” heading=”link-text” identity=”Purpose Scan Coach (Navigator)/Conscious Connector” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″ email=”gijsje@awakeorigins.com”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”9938″ name=”Martijn van Eijk” heading=”link-text” identity=”Conscious Connector” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top_multiplier=”” rc_heading_color=”dark” rc_link_color=”primary-1″ rc_link_hover_color=”primary-3″ rc_bg_type=”color” rc_bg_color=”#ffffff” rc_font_color=”#000000″][vc_column width=”1/5″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”9913″ name=”Jorien van Duijn” heading=”link-text” identity=”Facilitator / Navigator” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”9942″ name=”Yolanda van Die” heading=”link-text” identity=”Concsious Creator / Navigator” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”9736″ name=”Martin Friedrich” heading=”link-text” identity=”Facilitator / Navigator” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/5″][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”10350″ name=”Katharina Kugler” heading=”link-text” identity=”Conscious Connector” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″ email=”katharina@awakeorigins.com”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row disable_element=”yes”][vc_column][crocal_team image_size=”medium_large” image=”9969″ name=”Norman Wahl” heading=”link-text” identity=”Conscious Connector” shadow=”medium-shadow” radius=”radius-3″ overlay_color=”primary-1″][/vc_column][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row]
