I decided to meet Dorien this last month for a personal breathing session. I met her in a group few months ago where she show us already how to breath, even if it was not the main activity, It was already great and I felt very good and safe to have Dorien next to me. Her strong, grounded and peaceful energy really helped me to go a lot further in my process. 
This last month, I did one session with her and it was very POWERFUL! I had a lot of very old emotions to release and Dorien was perfect in her role. I really could feel all my body releasing from old tensions I even forgot it was there because it is already there for years and years. Even my boyfriend I met few hours after told me that my body was different, so much more relax. I really believe the person to do the breathing work is one of the key for a deep healing. I'm so grateful I met this wonderful soul on my way.

I'm living in Brussels, so unfortunately, I cannot go to her to make more regular work. I tried to find someone to try with in Brussels and it was absolutely not the same. If you have the luck to live nearby, go for it ! It's really worth it.

I never experienced a transformational breath session before, so I didn’t know what was going to happen exactly. Dorien guided me beautifully through our session. I felt safe, I felt helt, I felt supported in feeling everything that came up and I felt guided in releasing all that my body wished to release there and then. I wish to continue to take sessions at Dorien, and release more and go deeper. She feels safe and emits so much love.

A breath session with Dorien is always a full journey. With only little words she is able to understand what my body and my spirit need. When I am in Dorien’s hands I feel so safe that my body already opens before we even start to work. Every time we breathe she lovingly pushes me over again another boundary. Anger, sadness, fear or total madness, we have gone through quite some extremes and we always end up in total bliss. Dorien is capable of bringing breath, light and love to things that are hiding sometimes for a hundred years. Dorien has helped me to surrender and made me flourish in ways that I cannot put into words. She is an incredible woman and I would highly recommend her and her breathwork to anyone.

Wat een powervrouwen en wat en een dreamteam zijn Soraya en Dorien. Hun vrouwen cirkels zijn de meest magische en mystieke cirkels die ik heb mee gemaakt. Met een fijne afwisseling van bezinning, sharing, beweging en Breathwork creeëren zij een avond vol diepgang en sisterhood. Onder begeleiding van hun bewuste liefdevolle aanwezigheid en prachtige ziels-rakende muziek, nodigen ze je in een veilige ruimte uit voor een reis naar binnen in verbinding met het vrouwelijk collectief. Elke cirkel weer ga ik ontspannen, vervult en empowered naar huis. En ik verheug me op de volgende!

I attended one of Dorien's breathing group sessions in Amsterdam by sheer chance, having some extra time prior to my flight to London. This has lead to a beautiful and heart-opening experience, beyond what I would have expected. Surrounded by a group of brave women deeply experiencing their emotional layers - I have come to some of my own realizations and experiences. In the safe space created by Dorien, I was able to reconnect to my own buried feelings and release some heaviness I've been carrying around for a long time. This has served as a powerful transformative experience for me, leading to a deeper understanding of myself and others. Thank you for the work you are doing!

We invited Dorien to come do work at our biweekly men’s circle. It was deep, transformational and a lot of fun. We were able to get the most out of the session because of Dorien’s ability to apply soft touch and also to give us the extra push where needed, to sink deeper into ourselves and our bodies. She does beautiful work, professional and with care. I would highly recommend her, for breathwork and guidance of healing sessions. Recently she came to guide both my parents through a breath session.

Wat ik meeneem (en zittend op de rots de woorden niet voor kon vinden) is meer bewustzijn op momenten dat ik in een angst kan schieten en door dit helderdere bewustzijn en wat tools - een andere keuze te maken hoe er mee om te gaan. Het durven voelen en daar OK mee te zijn. Fijn om zo bewust 2018 af te sluiten, dingen achter me te laten en vol vertrouwen en inspiratie het nieuwe jaar in te gaan. Ik heb genoten van jullie echtheid, nuchterheid, humor en liefdevolle aanwezigheid.

I have had a number of sessions with Dorien and I am impressed and comforted by her natural way of guiding me through the more difficult parts of trauma recovery. Her sessions are very valuable to me in dealing with a hard subject. Very much recommend, including for those having difficulty "getting out of their heads".

Directe adem sessie 1op1 of in specifieke aandacht in een groep, Dorien is zo ‘dedicated’ en ‘experienced’ ze voelt en ziet precies waar je zit, wat je nodig hebt, hoe je verder kan, waar je liever of juist harder voor jezelf mag zijn. Ze weet precies waar ze even een extra ‘touch’ kan geven om jezelf nog eerlijker te ‘triggeren’. Adem en flop, en adem en flop, dat ademen dat kan ik nu na meerdere sessies ook zelf gefocused in een echt moment met mezelf. Maar met Dorien ga ik verder, dieper. Ik voel me veilig, gezien en ondersteund. Mijn focus laat zelfs het laatste beetje controle los, ja en dan ga ik echt. DANK DORIEN, je bent voor mij een belangrijke aanwinst in het spectrum van healers! Female strong, no bullshit, sincere, in depth.

The breathwork sessions with BODYDOOR, whether group sessions or privates, have been liberating experiences!

Without shame and welcoming everyone and everything, she’ll take her time for every one of us to share our stories. To figure out where we’re at, and where we’re going for this shared moment together.

I feel heard.

 

And I can learn from other people’s stories… to witness I am not alone in whatever I experience; there are always other participants with the same struggles, doubts and fears.

 

Her group sessions make me connect to people quickly! A surprise, knowing that my default and traumatized setting is to disconnect first. To isolate myself in order to protect myself and to hopefully keep me safe… eventhough as an adult, the effects are opposite to this. In BODYDOORs group sessions and privates, I feel I can open up; I am safe here with myself. I am allowed to open my heart and throat to share.

 

I will be safe here.

 

And if I doubt, or if my inner childs are starting to scream, BODYDOOR is quick to acknowledge this. With her loving and caring voice – the voice of nourishment – she puts my inner childs at ease. Like little children they seek shelter under the warm blanket of her voice and presence.

 

She guides us through the sessions, takes us by the hand when we need it, and lets us be when we can be. The fact I can sense she is with us, her being making contact with me, is all I needed to open up and explore my feelings.

 

It is painful at times, it is scary at times, it is heavy at times… but it is equally liberating, freeing and opening.

 

I have learned to breathe. I have learned to express. I have learned to let go. I have learned to relax. To be with my pain, with my trauma, with my emotions and feelings… I can practice to accept all of it, and be with it as a calm, loving and playful observer. Sometimes I fight it, but I always remember I can be at peace with it too.

 

It is all okay.

 

I am light.

Ik ben gisteren thuis gekomen van een bijzonder retreat bij Tom en Dorien. Wauw echt een life changing week. Een pittige week met alles doorvoelen wat er is en ermee ademen. Wat een ruimte en kracht voel ik nu. Ik voel me meer dan ooit verbonden met mijn hart en voel de kracht om dat alleen nog te koesteren en in liefde met mezelf te zijn.
