In nature green represents balance, energy, prosperity and positive interaction.

Experiential learning is a motivating, active, challenging process where interpersonal bonding happens; it’s creative with no limit. Time to hack your settings! Start thinking differently, open up, listen, focus, embrace, learn about yourself and others and modify your thoughts and behaviours accordingly.

Giving people the chance “to breathe deeply” and find their way throughout life are one of the major objectives for green experience programs.

The fact is that companies aim for unconditional success and it is essential that company’s have to embrace and develop their employees accordingly.

Being goal oriented, proactive, an effective team player and a good listener are just some examples of the basic expected abilities of a professional. The good news is, we are all equipped with these core abilities and the better news is that these are possible to be improved.

Goodbye “classical lecturing”: now it’s time for playing and reflecting. By using effective experiential learning methodology participants are guided in a physical and psychological safe and joyful environment in which they can try out new things, focus and reflect and most importantly integrate the experience and learning into their work.

Accredited John Adair Action Centred Leadership Trainer
Experiential Training Facilitator

…here are some personal and professional milestones… born in 1970 as the youngest, my family always gave me the feeling, “yes you are welcome in this world and in this family” and this is probably why they named me Dilek, which, in Turkish, means “Wish”.

Looking back I appreciate my parents and 3 brothers supporting me to become an independent, global minded, proactive, curious, respectful and conscious human being, I appreciate the chance to be born and live until the age of 21 in Pfalzgrafenweiler, a little village in Black Forest, Germany. Being half German I am precise, punctual, and a hard worker and being half Turkish I am passionate, flexible and always open to new challenges.
Since 1997 I have been working in the field of Self Awareness & Personal Development, focusing on human behavioural issues.

I started my professional career as a trainer in 1997 at Arthur Andersen as an assistant in the Training Consulting Department, following 2 years at Ernst & Young as a senior consultant, trainer and facilitator. In 2002 I joined the DSM group as a training manager and focused on marketing, designing and running experiential training programs. Since then experiential learning has become a passion and the right methodology to express myself.

Working as a consultant, I have had the chance to work with various global brands, diverse teams and with people at all levels from different businesses. I got the privilege to attend a 2 year psychodrama workshop at the Istanbul Psychodrama Institute, participated the Human Resources Certification Program at the Yildiz Technical University and since 2013 I am an accredited John Adair Action Centred Leadership as well as a certified Youth Mindfulness Trainer. Beside my career as experiential learning facilitator, mindfulness became an important balancing factor and topic which I am practicing since 2014. Hopefully my learning journey will never stop, being curious about Gestalt Therapy, I started a certification program in Humanistic Counselling at the Gestalt Centre in London, aiming to graduate in late 2018.

Within my 20 years of experience I have had the chance to network with various other competent trainers from different countries and nationalities with whom we are running mutual programs. I am capable of running programs in my mother tongues German and Turkish as well as in English.

I am the life partner of Alper and mother of Pamir and Doruk, two great boys, always ready to challenge, fulfil and energise me.


a nourishing, supporting way of living in a hectic stressful world

Year 2014 was the first time I got to hear about MINDFULNESS. Lucky me my first experience of it was a guidance of a very dynamic and experienced facilitator who literally briefed me step by step through this mindful natural state of living. Back then I was much more fact oriented than I am now, meaning I needed proof that this is an effective tool I could use for stress reduction and a more balanced life.

Now, I know it is not only about a short term or long term outcome, but it is about trusting the process, being kind to myself and others and that I simply have to reset, refresh and remind myself about this essential mindful way of living every special breathing moment. I got my own proof that mindfulness can improve physical and mental health and overall well-being but nevertheless truth is it needs practice, practice and more practice.

That’s why I like the saying, “you have to cultivate mindfulness”, in the sense of planting and watering seeds and then tending those seeds as they first take root and grow in the soil of our hearts and then flower and bear fruit in interesting, useful and creative ways (reference “Sitting Still Like a Frog by Eline Snel”).

Getting inspired and feeling motivated, I started to dig more into this “new” way of living and started to recreate and overview priorities in my life. I started to take more time for myself, my personal as well as business duties and relations, started to concentrate more on my needs and started to cultivate mindfulness through regular meditation.

This was and is my way of cultivating mindfulness; December 2015 I took the opportunity to be part of a 8 week MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) program which again supported my processing of being more mindful instead of just fullfilling ordinary to do lists. Since September 2016 I am a regular member of Giorgina Pontet’s mindful mediation sessions and in addition to my career as an experiential learning faciliator, I joined a train the trainer program in June 2017 at the University of Westminser in London and got certified as a “Youth Mindfulness Teacher” by

I am aiming to get more people interested in mindfulness, children as well as adults. Therefore I will be practicing mindfulness whenever, whereever I can and try my best to encourage others to do so as well in order to relax, reset and refresh themselves.

Beside running mindfulness programs at schools, I am also running mindfulness introduction programs for adults, sharing personal experience and getting more people involved in this practice. Mindfulness is definitely a capacity, that can be developed and deepened.

Thich Nhat Hanh, a Zen Buddhist Monk and spiritual master says;
“You are here for life and if you are here for life, life will be here for you. It’s simple. Peace is contagious, being simple and happy is contagious. When you practice mindful mediation, you stop being a slave of the past or the future, you get the strength to resist the tendency to be carried away by thoughts and fears. Don’t waste your time with worrying about things that have not or may never happen. Practice meditation so that the three elements of body, mind and breath become one.”

If you are interested in INDIVIDUAL, YOUTH or COOPERATE MINDFULNESS programs, please do get in touch. In my MINDFULNESS programs I do combine experiential learning tools, meditation as well as sharing cyles. I find it important to give information out as well as to give opportunities to share, understand and nourish each other.

Hope you as well will start your mindfulness journey very soon, looking forward to connect.
