Education & Activism

moving towards a better future

I always had a very strong sense of justice.

It’s hard for me to keep quiet when I see inequality. In our current climate, there is a lot of injustice happening in the world. Powerful groups of people are taking advantage of the weak or voiceless. Our precious earth is treated as a commodity, instead of being honored. Social inequalities are creating division between humans.

I am determined to do whatever it takes in this lifetime to be an inspiration for change.
To be a voice for the voiceless. And a reason for people to come together & dream of new realities.

“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing.”

empowering the women of Indonesia

By healing & supporting the feminine, we bring balance back into this world.

For centuries, the feminine has been oppressed, exploited & weakened. Feminine qualities are regarded as weak – in men & women alike. Softness & compassion had to move and make space for hard competition. This causes great imbalances in our society. We can only restore it by coming together & encourage the rise of the feminine.

We founded Wanita Bisa as a space & platform for Indonesian women to hold space, allow all feelings to arise & support each other in our healing. It is a space where women are feeling valued & honoured for who they are.

Indonesia is a highly patriarchic society, where women are regarded as less and sons are preferred over daughters. Even though there is a huge movement of the so-called “Divine Feminine” in Bali, it is still non-existent among the local community. I hope to spark a change through Wanita Bisa.

We are holding events, circles and upload educational & inspirational content for women in Indonesia.

my activist story

As an empath & overly sensitive being, it is hard for me to ignore the suffering of others – humans, animals & our earth alike. Often, it feels like it’s my own suffering. And the only way I see, is to do what is in my power to lessen the suffering, or help to lift the veil of ignorance.

Already as a teen, I became passionate to fight injustice & ignorance. I have gained awareness on topics such as the environment and feminism at a very young age. Until today, whenever I see people coming together for a common goal that is bigger than them I’m getting goosebumps.

My mother used to call me a rebellious & difficult child because I would constantly challenge the status quo, and refuse to accept what I felt was against my being. But I know that it is thanks to this inherent quality that I can become a leader of the new world.

All I want in life is to be free. But I wont be free unless all beings on earth are. And this is why I will continue to raise my voice against authorities that abuse their powers, and open my heart for those who suffer from the consequences.

“I alone cannot change society for the better.
But I can radically transform my own Consciousness, overturning the conditioning that limits my potential. We can all do this, one by one.
Over time we can change ourselves to the degree that society changes from the inside out. Giving birth to a new way of being.
Manifesting our birthright of living in a peaceful and abundant world.
Have no fear. Trust yourself. Live your full potential.”
