My name is Amir, and I facilitate collective development processes.
I find groups an endless resource for learning and growth. I see the challenge of connecting to the other, and of allowing others to connect to me as the most difficult and important practice of our time.
For me, coaching circles capture the essence of the future I am trying to create: It allows deep dialogue, full presence and ownership of our personal growth.
I see coaching circles as a never ending journey, and I myself participate in multiple circles regularly.
I have a BSc in psychology and MSc in organizational Psychology with complementary experience in Theory U, Dynamic Judgment Forming, and Mediation.
I live in Amsterdam with my wife and daughter, I like to cook for the people I love, solo hiking, racing bikes, meditating and swimming.
