+Kjell Weewer do you know what mushroom this is?
 
I spent last weekend in Abbey of Our Lady of Koningshoeven in Berkel-Enschot. It was a reunion of all the A Stranger in the Monastery-weekends so far. Within the hospitality of the brethren Cistercian order we explored the theme silence and celebrated the Liturgy of the Hours with them; 6 times a day between 4:30 and 19:30. A powerful and inspirational experience.

I kinda love it! :)
 
It's my birthday tomorrow, so you should all watch this commercial we did for a local cinema here in our home town.
This will be your gift to me, watching this and subscribing.
BUT, if you hate me, then you'll hate it... and I'm kinda cool with that, so it's completely up to you.

Virtual Ownership: Two Shelves of Mediocre Films, Tucked Away

Virtual ownership makes it no longer necessary to own stuff. But why can't we quite let go of our film collection?

I started this morning, Kenton and Rebecca haven't said a word too much.

I'm not sure what the neighbours think of my attempt, but I'm still vibrant. A cold shower really is the foundation under your day.

Now hoping to keep this up!
 
Looking for wild mushrooms for dinner.

Time, the Beat of Life. How Each Passes Quicker than the Last

Old people often say time flies. They should know, as they have seen so much of it. But do you remember when you were young, and the summer seemed to last forever? They can’t both be right, can they? Well imagine this. When you’re five years old, one year is 20% of your life, when you’re 80 it’s only 1,25%.

The brain-scientist that had a stroke: “And the next thing my brain says to me is, ‘Wow! This is so cool.’ (Laughter) ‘This is so cool! How many brain scientists have the opportunity to study their own brain from the inside out?’ (Laughter)”

The brain-scientist that had a stroke. She studied her experience and claims to have found Nirvana. What does that say about left- and right-brain approaches of religion?

Did you know that this year, Islamic Festival of Sacrifice (Id al-Adha) is celebrated on the same day as World Animal Day ( Saint Francis Day)?

Today I launched my Interreligious Holiday App on my website. Give it a look, it gives you 259 reasons to celebrate!

Work
Occupation
Scholar of Religion, Social Media professional.
Story
Tagline
Religious Studies Professional | Passionate about Religion, Film, Youth and Social Media | International website: gauwain.eu | Dutch website: gauwain.nl
Introduction
Hi there!
I think it's great you took the time to delve into my profile page. So, who am I?

Highlights
I'm majored in Religious Studies (MA), looking for an opportunity to spread my wings. I'm passionate about social media, religion, youth and film. If you're curious to know why, see below.

Work
I recently graduated my MA (Religious Studies) and I'm looking to join a PhD programme. Also, I'm building up my own company, Gauwain, where I connect religious institutions to social media. 
  • If you want to know more about Gauwain visit my international site gauwain.eu or my Dutch site gauwain.nl.
  • Feel free to +mention me here Google+ for questions
Social Media
Social Media are a very powerful tool to connect. I wrote an extensive blogpost about how religious institutions can use social media. It turns out they are more easy to use than you would think. You already have all the skills you need. The fact that you're reading this, proves that. 
Religion
Religion is my object of study and one of my passions. Religious beliefs are a very powerful motivator of the great majority of the world's population, how can one not want to understand that?

Youth
Every year, I staff a summer camp of (lightly game-addicted) adolescents. With my staff we try to let the games they know come to life in the woodlands of the Netherlands. Adolescents are powerful people, aspiring to grow, always changing and very very idealistic. How I wish I could have kept that idealism fully alive! If you don't work with young people, you have no clue how inspiring they can be!

Film
Films and movies tell stories. Man is made of stories. They move us and shake us. I wrote two theses on film. My MA-thesis (in Dutch) is available at gauwain.nl/kijk.

Bragging rights
I graduated my MA cum laude, won the 2nd prize in the Leo Polak Thesis-Award 2012.
