Ralf came in contact with Circling and RIA after having immersed for five years in Non-Violent Communication. He is founder of an offline community in Connective Communication located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. This form combines the explorative nature of the inquiry and the clarity on empathy of NVC. Next to RIA-like Connected Meditations, there are also NVC-based lessons aimed at bringing authenticity and connection to everyday life.
In daily life, Ralf works as a Hypnotherapist. He loves to dance, and used to teach Contact Improvisation. His international career as a light artist and sculptor is now, due to his passion in the Relating field, reduced to one or two projects a year.
