Mijn naam is Eva Dassen en ik ben actief als politiek activist, gespreksbegeleider en workshopfacilitator.
Ik voel me geroepen om mensen samen te brengen, gemeenschappen te vormen en betekenisvolle gesprekken te voeren. Op deze pagina kan je meer vinden over mijn opleidingsachtergrond. Een groot deel van mijn opleiding is 'zelfgestuurd'. Daar schrijf ik over op andere andere mijn blog. Een sfeerimpressie van mij werk is te vinden op de pagina 'werk'.
Feb 2023 - March 2023 Wheel of Consent 3 - day training with Marielle Spronck: The Wheel of Consent is developed by Betty Martin and describes the 'Art of Giving and Receiving' and how to create consent spaces. I apply this in my workshops as consent is essential in order to create a 'safer container' for both personal and collective processes.

Jan 2022 - June 2022 Halfyear training Polyvagal theory (6 sessions of 3 hours) & 2 online trainings (each 4 sessions) - with Marielle Spronck: the Polyvagal Theory is developed by Stephen Porges and describes the different nervous system states and how they impact us (in short: fawn, fight, flight, freeze). Deb Dana developed a more therapeutic approach that can be applied in order to respond to and regulate our nervous system states (which has impact on the way we feel, think, act and are). These trainings used insights from both Stepehen Porges and Deb Dana.
Sep 2021 - Now Host & Office Manager Young Innovators Program at the University of Utrecht
Young Innovators is an Honors Program for national and international Master's students of the Utrecht University. It aims to co-create a learning community that invites students to: reflect on one's socialization, worldview and power relations, connection to non-human nature, embody one's values, co-create interventions and (un)learn together. As a host I facilitate the processes that invites these learnings and as 'Office Manger' I maintain an overview of the organizational side.
