You can direct energy with intention
Books ‘The Field’ and ‘The Intention Experiment’
by Lynn McTaggart
All the ancient cultures had a term for life energy: e.g.
Ch’i, prana, mana. Science talks about Zero Point Energy.
This energy is present everywhere. Life energy is activated
by attention and directed by intention. This is how healthy
energy is strengthened in organizations.
Everything is possible
For 99,999999999999% an atom is made up of space filled
with (life)energy. The remaining 0,000000000001% of matter
appears not to be made up of particles but of energy.
Concrete reality exists due to our concrete convictions. It
looks like everything is fixed the way it is but in reality
matter is soft and plastic. We live in a sea of energy with
an unlimited amount of possibilities.

output. Awareness-raising and change processes happen more
quickly and the impact last longer. So far around100
ECOintention practitioners have graduated.
Many of them work freelance or for Center for

Feelgood Garden). All graduates use their ECOintention
knowledge and experience in their daily life and work.
