My name is Felice Derkinderen, and before long I won't be necessary. I’ll show you who you are. How beautiful, good, and whole you are. And that you matter.
following your own pathI’m a curious person with an open mind by nature, and am deeply inspired to figure out how things work, in my own way. By following this path I discover unusual answers that are hidden beneath the surface, which make me more and more aware of what it means to be human. As an artist and during my work as a professional photographer I became fascinated by the remarkable encounters I had, and by the process of creating an image of an essential part of a person’s personality. This led me to delve deeper into the human psyche using the powers of the imagination, and to look for methods that would make this possible.
The intensive study and practice of various wisdom traditions offered me indicators and tools on a path that led inward. Like my many travels around the world, they challenged me to come home to myself in order to find meaning and a sense of what is truly of value. I have come to realize that every living being has its own valuable place in the bigger picture. Therefore it brings me great fulfillment to inspire people to walk a path that is in harmony with their very own nature.
knowledge and loveThe Tarot has made my life richer and deeper, and I have come to love the psychology and mythology hidden within its images. I have found it to be an ingenious system for reflecting on life. An inspirational, powerful, and enlightening resource for gaining insight into inner processes. It is a privilege to be able to help others use this resource to facilitate their own development.
This knowledge and love, along with more than twenty years of study and personal experience with Eastern and Western wisdom traditions, comes together in the services I offer through ESSENCE >> coaching, where I regularly work both for and with professionals from related disciplines. My inquisitive mind is balanced by a rich imagination and a well-developed intuition. Therefore my guidance can take you both outside the logical frameworks and anchore you in reality.
