Personal Curriculum Vitae

Marten Vijn, born 1967

This makes me happy… I like exploring, recognizing, meandering and discovering what is there, not necessarily what needs to be done. I like to be close and that I can still feel: I am me and you remain you. I love the truth, how truth resonates in the heart, and the heart returns words for refinement. I like to play with language, but not with spelling. I understand quite a lot about dyslexia, autism, intelligence, loneliness and being alone. I do understand a lot about fatherhood and co-parenting. I could help your co-parenting. If wished, my co-parent can also stepin. I can do a lot with persevering, taxing, overloading, limiting, letting go, expanding, being sensitive and powerful, charging and making space, integrating, also traveling to the stars and back. Listening and feeling what is needed or wants to happen, often even before there are words; call it intuitive or highly sensitive.
