Coach / Facilitator
Anita Floris is a trainer, facilitator and coach. Waking up and Growing up are the main driving forces in my life. My ‘coming out’ as a Zen monk in 2013 marked a turning point, the waking up was a private affair before, now it is an integral part of what I bring to the table. Offering virtual daily sits through Two Arrows Zen among others.
The expression of our waking up from the dream in our growing up is an ongoing challenge and at the same time the most natural thing in the world. Offering support to individuals and groups to evolve and ripen in our practice and our expression in balancing all aspects, intuition, emotional or shadowwork, fysical and rational an interpersonal
From waking up from the dream to not having the dream turn into a nightmare!
My growth evolved from my life experience and work in child protection, the last decades with unaccompanied minor asylum seekers. The collective growth in different cultures, the individual growth and challenges, the pain that that brings and how that pain points to our gateway to Big Heart. In one sentence that contains all of the many layers and intricate patterns that we weave together and is such a joy to experience, live and a challenge to our Showing up.

She is the lead facilitator of Systemic Constellation Work (SCW) on the international core teams of The Hague Centre and Integral City, where systemic design processes are used regularly for decision-making, designing creative projects, and team building.

Her work in the constellation field is published in The Knowing Field International Journal, the Integral Leadership Review, and included as chapters in two books.
Underlying all she does is her purpose: attuning to the Sacred, to participate in the movements for humanity to be in its rightful place in relationship with All-Life. She loves to ask big questions (such as: What is Conscious Dying? And What is the Imagination, really? And What is Humanity’s place in the flow of Life?) She allows these questions to be her guide on her journey leading to her researching, reporting and publishing what she discovers on the way.

Marianne de Jager
Board member and pragmatist with business background
Understanding and experiencing what lies beyond my thinking and how consciousness and perspective impact my actions is the red thread in my work and life. From the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in NYCity to IBM in Amsterdam and in between, this curiosity is leading in my personal and professional development. My mission becomes the discovery and embodiment of integral and holistic perspective also in the business context.
I enjoyed and still love the international scene and relationships, as well as the dynamics of the joint creation of projects and solutions. My work evolves from secretary in the UNDP to client executive in the financial services sector and later to senior consultant for evolutionary change in IBM. My work as change agent in the corporate environment is challenging and rewarding.
My integral practice includes ECOintention, a cutting-edge, technology-free way of healing life- and ecosystems from a distance. This practice applies the ten Principles of Energetic Guardianship, operating on a small or a large scale, showing how to energetically charge, support and guide the life-systems and ecosystems that are in our care. This 4-year vocational training is a beautiful and practical add-on to my portfolio of skills.
I presently work independently in the co- creation of conscious organisations. I am happy to contribute to the mission of The Hague Center for Global Governance, Innovation and Emergence in co-creating a world where we can all thrive.
