Hi, I'm Jonas
I support activists, changemakers and community-builders in finding a balance between the dynamics of change and the inner calm needed to be effective in the long run.
About my coaching
I work with people who recognize that systemic inequalities and injustice, are the cause of a lot of misery and suffering. It can seem very difficult to find ways to act upon this realization. Sometimes it seems even more difficult to reconcile effective transformational work and personal well-being.
It doesn’t have to be like that though. We all have the ability to recognize our most meaningful contribution and to realize it with ease – and without burning ourselves out.
I offer my support in these areas
Clarifying your vision and exploring your core values
Only when we see clearly the vision out of which we engage in transformational work and are present to our values, can we go forward authentically.
Focusing on taking action
All the realizations in the world are useless if we don’t translate them into action. Only when we see the results of our actions in physical reality is it, that we know we are doing the right thing.
Work together sustainably
In groups with strong values, that are contributing to a livable future for all, intrinsic motivation is often so big, that we tend to bite off more that we can chew sometimes. Transformational work is an enduring process though, that can only be carried forward by well rested and healthy humans.
It is my goal that you can make the contributions you are here to make - consistently and with ease and grace.
Who I work with
- activists in the areas of feminism, climate justice and regenerative agriculture
- founders of social start-ups, who’s biggest driver is to make a contributions
- humans who are creating structures of community and mutual support
- humans who’ve had enough of structural injustice, even if they don’t yet now what exactly they are going to do about it
- humans with a vision for a livable future for all
- … that want to find their shared purpose and vision
- … that want to clarify their shared relation to “self-care” and “sustainable-activism”
- … that want to uncover and dismantle hidden hierarchies and power dynamics
- ... that are looking for practical ways of living in a more communal way
