Nanke founded THUJA from her desire to guide leaders on their journeys to each finding their own unique way to serve the world.
Nanke’s own trials and tribulations led her to explore the wisdom teachings of the world. She is a student and teacher of Vipassana meditation, Yoga, Advaita Vedanta, Buddhism and Shamanism as well as in more contemporary approaches such as Transformational Psychology, Theory U and Leading Mindful Change. Over the past decade, she has found new depths in the healing power of the nature, which she had grown to know so intimately during her African childhood. Nanke is passionate about bridging the gap between the business and the natural world, because she knows this is the only way for the future.
Marieke is an adventurous soul who loves discovering new terrain, in both the inner and outer world. She lived and worked abroad and experienced the power of nature, silence and alone-time during transformative experiences in her home country and in the desert of Morocco. She is also trained in Mindfulness, NLP and Transformational breathing.
