– A New and Unique Method
Wider Embraces is a simple yet powerful method that opens us to a new way of being in the world.
We use the scientific worldview as our map and become aware of everything we belong to:
- The physical Embrace of the Universe.
- The biological Embrace of the Biosphere.
- The Cultural Embrace of Humanity.
- The Embrace of all of me.
- The Embrace of any other group I belong to.
We rest in each and feel a deep belonging. Unconditional.
When we are aware of one of other wider Embraces, we can lean out into it and take it as our first-person perspective; become aware
From this wider perspective, we can gain new and potent insights, often surprising ones.
Our last keyword is alignment; it’s about finding our place in all our wider Embraces. Being parts living the whole and a whole living my parts. I’m convinced that this is a necessary step for the long-term survival of any technologically advanced culture.
To read about it will give you some ideas, to get it, you have to join in and experience it yourself. Welcome!
Founder of Wider Embraces

In August 2018, I had an extraordinary experience that I’ve hesitated to share because I don’t want to be seen as crazy, nor as hopeless and pessimistic. But the more I’ve dived into the message I got, alone and together with my beautiful friends, the more I’ve come to see that it’s a very fruitful … Read more
The last days I’ve come to a point where I’m fed up with being nice. I feel trapped in a bubble of politeness and normality. Our current time on planet Earth is not normal. Positive thinking and pointing at alternatives and being polite is not the way forward anymore. It has been overdue for a long … Read more
When you think of planet Earth; do you see the oceans and the continents? The air? I guess you do. But are you aware of the inner of the planet? The part of Earth that is hidden, that we can’t see, nor visit. I must admit that I’ve almost entirely related to Earth’s surface and hardly ever conceivin … Read more
