Together everyone achieves more

Open Up was founded in 2015 by Katrien Franken as a human growth school for learning and self-healing. We have build solid foundations for learning and practice which is evidence based.


In 2020 we initiated a scientific research department to build/bridge it in science and are pioneering breathwork with psychotherapy for healthcare renewal. Open Up is working with Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam, and Hersencentrum, and collaborating with an amazing team of scientific researcher and curious life explorers who bring their skills, dedication and experience to the scientific project. You can meet them here.
