Marjatta van Boeschoten
Marjatta was a Steiner Waldorf pupil and then practiced as a lawyer for 7 years. After having two children, she started a new career as a management development consultant based on the social development impulse of Bernard Lievegoed. She founded a consultancy working predominately with large national and international companies, UK government departments and the IAEA at the United Nations in Vienna. She is on a Board of Triodos Bank NL. Since 2013 she is the General Secretary of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain and is part of the Goetheanum Meditation Worldwide Initiative.
Inner development and anthroposophical meditation have become essential sources of nourishment to sustain me in a very active, world-orientated life. Along the way I have been fortunate to work with Arthur Zajonc and others whose insights have helped and encouraged me to work with the challenges of developing an inner path. I now hold talks and workshops to explore the joys and challenges of inner work and describe ways to deepen and sustain individual practice.
For many years I worked with leaders to help them develop their capacities and skills and am convinced of the central importance of an inner practice to develop wakefulness, poise and vision that can lead to beneficial and inspired action.
Marjatta van Boeschoten will be part of the workshop <Meditation and Leadership> together with Paul Mackay.
