The conscious creators behind House of Essence
Meet Romy and Michelle; two women with a mission to create a more conscious and loving world. In January 2020, having been circling in each other’s networks for years, they met for the first time over coffee.
Romy had been working on the concept for House of Essence since May 2019 and Michelle was running her own conscious platform. Each on their own path towards a more conscious life; a deep connection was formed instantly. A few months after, their stories merged. Creating a place to feel, to connect and to grow.
Romy cares deeply for our planet and strongly believes there’s more to our world than meets the eye. In the past few years, she’s been working as a creative strategist for brands in sustainability and health. For most of her life, she had the belief that living a meaningful life is by working hard. This often caused her to feel stressed and even though she loved her job, it felt as if it was never enough. Until she dared to dive deeper, leaving her old beliefs behind and started truly listening to her heart.
In Spring 2019, during one of her travels, Romy found a place where she felt more connected to herself than ever before: “It was a place where I could recharge, reconnect and discover more about myself and the world around me. A place where I could create from a state of flow and allowing, instead of forcing myself to achieve. With House of Essence, I want to share this feeling with others. I strongly believe that when you connect to your inner self, you become more conscious of your own needs and desires, but also more ready to contribute to the world around you”.
Michelle is a true connector at heart; whether it’s about connecting people, ideas or concepts. She has always been sensitive for energies and was missing a true meaning and connection between people. Next to her work as a health nutritionist, she has been running her own platform to inspire people on their path towards themselves, realising a deeper connection with others and the essence of life.
Michelle truly believes that we can only make a real connection with the other, when we’re connected to ourselves. With her events, poems and stories, she aspires to show people how to get in touch with themselves and each other on a deeper level.
“I want to share with people how it feels to be more connected to your essence. I truly believe that you create the world around you. When you’re more connected to yourself, you start to view your world differently”
