Veet is a vegan chef and cooking instructor with a real passion for what she cooks and teaches.
To choose ethical ingredients for the meals we cook for ourselves and our loved ones is really important to her. So she has created a cooking school, where in 3 days one can learn to prepare wholesome, plant-based meals.
As there is no other training for vegan chefs available she also has created a comprehensive training to become a vegan chef.

Conversation with Janine Ma-Ree
When I think of Janine I feel my heart and my instincts becoming alive. To me she is a Feminine Mystic, she explores and embodies the feminine mysteries and powerfully transmits them through her energetic presence.
She worked as a Naturopath for 20 years, then the realms of the more hidden aspects of human life called her. She's now in the lead faculty of ISTA (International school of temple arts) and Temple Highden NZ, she has created her own workshops for women: 'The Ecstatic Menopause Retreat' and 'The Shamanic Wombjourney' and she keeps exploring life and sharing her wisdom gained out into the world.
Here we talk about Menopause as a Rite of Passage, the wisdom emerging from the Magas and Crones, Elder ship and its importance for community and our planet.
We hear also about how her naturopathic approach can support women through this transition.
A few years ago Janine founded Red Earth Temple, a living temple of activated wild land. Janine shares here about the connection to the land, her teacher and muse. We talk about her way of accessing wisdom through the womb and through working with archetypes.
Conversation with Nitya Longstrom
Nitya is a intimacy couch for men, supporting them to find into a more fulfilling intimate life.
I invited Nitya into a conversation to find out about the male experience when woman starts to be de-satisfied with the status quo of the sexual relating in the couple or while dating.
In my work with women I find that their erotic desire is often not being met beyond the high energy initiatory phase of relating or the high desirous ovulation moment of their cycle in ‘conventional’ male orientated sex practices.
During the transition into menopause the erotic desire changes even more for most women.
Nitya shares about the difficulties and stresses that men are experiencing and how she supports them into new ways of approaching a more holistic erotic life.
We talk about slowing down, bringing in the heart more consciously, the awkward moments when trying out new ways, allowing for playfulness and experimentation to become more attuned to one’s authentic, unique, erotic desire and how to share that in intimate relating with another.
This conversation is focused at first on the relating between man and woman but in second half we discuss the importance about dating oneself, meeting oneself in the erotic. Here are some pearls that are relevant for intimate meetings between two humans of any sexual orientation and gender.
