Nienke collaborates with her teacher, mentor and friend Sandra Epstein. She created the Ararêtama Essences and educational programs have their origin in the Brazilian Atlantic RainForrest, one of the greatest biodiversity on earth. Plants come together and through their differences they build a whole tapestry of life, weaving a complex web that supports survival and abundance. Ararêtama is a Tupi-Guarani word, which means “place where the light originates”.
An Educator in essence and action and an innovative consultant for these new times, Sandra Epstein has the experience and ability to implement creative solutions that establish cooperation and balance amidst diversity.
This comes from her extensive research on the biological intelligence of the Atlantic Rainforest in Brazil, a living example of cooperation with respect for differences between species. The principles and wisdom embodied by this forest are urgently needed if humanity is to truly evolve and thrive.

Based on these principles and wisdom, where creativity, flexibility, empathy and responsibility are the vortex of a healthy society, she has developed multifaceted work and offerings. Her company, Ararȇtama, brings together her research on flowers and plants through a special line of vibrational essences and cosmetics and a range of integrative educational projects. Sandra created the Therapeutic System called EMOTIONAL FITNESS, which encompasses behavioural and emotional exercises as a gym for the emotional well-being of all of us!
Emotional Fitness works on brain neuroplasticity by integrating the 3 vital centres of the human being; the instinctive, the sentimental and the intellectual, rebalancing and aligning these basic vibrational circuits in a way that allows new perceptions, experiences and a total approximation of the original essence of each being.
Nienke is working with neuroplasticity in all she does. Working with the essences and Sandras programs herself brought the awareness of the importance of continuous work on our neuroplasticity.

Sandra offers Coaching for individuals and enterprises, educational programs and workshops, helping people find synergy between their Talents, Passion and Direction in life through the integration of 3 personal ecologies – self-development, excellence in relationships and a positive impact on the world – each individual taking responsibility for their own process.
