Carlien Cavens - founder

As a former consultant for McKinsey, Carlien knows how important it is to unplug from time to time. In her career she’s met many successful people that felt like something was missing in their lives. That missing part has to do with authenticity, or rather, a lack of authenticity. Reconnecting to that authentic voice inside of you requires time, peace of mind, and very often people to guide you in the process. By creating 48HoursUnplug she set about to help others do just that

Through directive questions, you find the answers within yourself.  Besides asking annoying questions :-), Elisabeth also gives basic yoga exercises to reconnect the mind and body and to simply learn how to relax. If the weather allows it, she prefers to coach in nature or combine it with music meditation. The goal is to arrive at a sharp mind and a soft heart.
