About the tribe
The Moonflower is a powerful flower. She uses dark times to flourish, as she blooms overnight. After catching rays of sunshine during the day, she finds the strength to open her heart-shaped leaves to face the dark moments of the night.
This is the foundation of the Moonflower tribe. We believe strongly that humans grow when facing moments of difficulty. Our inner potential will develop as we open our arms to the challenges, like the flower opens her leaves. We invite you on a journey of your own, to become the flourishing flower you are.
Moonflower tribe is forever moving and flowing, therefore we work remotely and from different locations.

Behind the tribe
Behind the tribe, you’ll find me: Rosie. I am a warm mixture of Dutch-Italian blood. My life is currently colored by connecting with people and nature, surfing beautiful waves, and accompanying people in a journey of their own.
The foundation of the Moonflower tribe is dear to my heart, as I myself have experienced the power of growth in darker times. Like anyone, I have been faced with difficulties which made me grow into a more powerful young woman.
I started the Moonflower tribe as I wish this growth upon every single one of you. It is also found to acknowledge that it is okay to accept someone into your life to accompany you in your journey. My main mission is to invite you to get to know yourself to the fullest and embrace that self completely.
Trust, connection and realness are the values that feed the Moonflower tribe. Creating a safe space for you to embark on your personal journey.
I aspire to provide a playground, to blow off some steam, and tap into the joy of life.
I have been educated in psychology at the university of Utrecht. After that I worked in psychiatry for some time, but soon discovered that it didn’t match my beliefs. Thinking about diagnoses and problems felt too heavy hearted.
I decided to do a coaching degree, which focuses more on a person as a whole being, balance, and strengths. I followed courses in positive psychology, vitality coaching, stress-counselling, base coaching and movement coaching.
Besides my studies, I have been using surfing as a personal form of therapy and growth. My heart is dedicated to surfing. It has helped me through a lot of dark and difficult times. The salt water has proven to have a calming effect on my nervous-system, which helped me deal with my anxiety. This calming and healing effect has also been shown in a wide range of research. It has been proven to have healing effects for anxiety, depression, PTSD and much more.
Not only does the ocean calm you down, but it also functions as a mirror. The Ocean provides you with the right lessons, at the right time. I use what I have learned through my own personal journey, and the research I have done, during the surf therapy and Mindful Surfing Sessions. Throughout these sessions I use surfing as a way to map your patterns, beliefs, and challenges. After mapping this, we can use surfing to break through the barriers you have come across in your own journey.
