Drs. Wil(helmus) Burgmans
A main interest and focus of drs. Wil(helmus (Burgmans) has been to improve human life through development of the qualities of consciousness, mind and heart. As the individual improves, the effects also extent to his immediate environment, his organization and company and, in a larger context, to society.
Leadership improvement plays a key role.
From an early interest in a deeper value of life, he first attended a regular high school intended for priest students.
Later, from a fresh interest in humanistic psychology and meditation, after one year as a physics student, he made the switch to psychology.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
He received a drs. (master) degree in educational psychology, with a minor in physiological psychology, including a minor thesis on consciousness and meditation.
Already since his student time he has been coaching and teaching meditation in the Netherlands. Later he helped to establish meditation and retreat centers in the Netherlands, Bali, Indonesia, and Poland.
In the eighties he followed a work-study program*) in Switzerland, taught didactics and educational psychology courses at a teacher training college in the Netherlands, and, along with a team of friends, taught meditation to all walks of life, including managers and executives.
