Exploring our humanity
Description of the workshop:
In this workshop we are going to dive into an exploration of core questions on what it means to be a human being on this earth. We will journey into the past to connect to where life once started, explore where we stand now, and venture into what is calling out of the future.
Key words for this workshop are: Relationship, coming home, nature mentorship, imagination, empowerment and commitment.
The intention I carry with my work and would love to share with you here is how to deepen my relationship and commitment to life and all living beings. I believe that by strengthening that relationship we learn to strive for systems that support a healthy resilient world for us all. For this we are going to be outside as much as possible!
My name is Christianne Sinoo and I am 28 years old.
After finishing high school in 2007 I studied at the Educational Applied Science department in Amsterdam where I chose Pedagogy.
Halfway through the year I realized that I was longing to explore, question more and be challenged in yet unknown ways.
I applied for The International Youth
Initiative Program (YIP), where I spend a view broadening and explorative year amongst young people from around the world.
It was exactly what I needed and broad me, eventually to study Culturele Maatschappelijke Vorming (Cultural Societal Shaping, a literal translation from Dutch).
This study led me into working with the Outdoors as a “tool” for transformation on a personal, community and societal level.
After my study I worked at YIP (2014-2016) and developed my skills as a facilitator, mentor and organizer while simultaneously deepening my nature guidance work with a 8-month training at Shumacher College (Call of the Wild).
Currently I am starting up a company guiding various outdoor journeys called “Homebound”, together with YIP alumni Inte Koster.
