Open Up is founded by Katrien Franken and exists to open, enliven and awaken “alive learning" processes for inner innovation and personal transformation to provide holistic solutions for global problems, where skills can be developed to self-organize and self-heal human life. Skills which can inspire and engage individuals and organizations to become active co-creators for a more conscious and sustainable society.
Our goal is to build a novel foundation of Learning and Practice to open and engage with culture from an inner learning perspective to increase people’s ability to make sense of complex issues, and work on their inner growth and wellbeing for themselves, each other and the world.
We develop practices to support people to experience (sense, feel) and understand (inquire, dialogue) into their discovery, and cultivate awareness and responsibility in what is opening up.
We safely, ethically and effectively guide people in conscious connected breathing, and explore transformation through
evidence-based and science-based study.
Our aim is to create deeply meaningful changes in people's lives and in society, and encourage an educational and experiential approach in order to facilitate the exchange of ideas and discoveries for a mutual growth, understanding, and enrichment.
Breathwork is a practice of self-exploration which takes people far beyond traditional cognitive therapies. It can be both liberating and exhilarating, but also challenging.
In individual and collective experiences we expand and open up through utilising the breath, bringing you in a particular set of internal experiences. With the inner healing intelligence guiding, the quality and content brought forth are unique to each person in that particular time and place.
Our work has many dimensions and invites people to move beyond intellectual understanding to an embodied place of deeper knowing.
Inspire. Connect. Transform
Individual. Communitas. Culture
