Janneke, Leonoor's mother, wrote beautiful poems (in Dutch: gedichten).

We, Leonoor and Marthe want to inspire people with our way of living and let people experience how nice and important it is to talk with each other, cooperate, be open for each other, love yourself and each other, take care for each other, sharing the care for children and elderly people, share experiences and knowledge, live together consume less and meditate more. Then there comes rest, light, happiness and love in our life and on earth.

De Derde Weg

made by Kate and Hidde

Contact & muziek originated through the wish to live a meaningful life. Marthe, Erik and Jeannette (she passed away the 8th of June 2017) started to live with Leonoor in her house in 2006, in the neighbourhood Lombok in Utrecht where Leonoor already lives since 1989. In our work and lives we missed room for own initiative and creativity. We started to look for a conscious way to live, live together and cooperate.

We are very grateful that we have a unique chance to be engaged with meaning, social consciousness, sustainability by our way of living together and cooperating. We talk, meditate, singen, make music, meet people and are engaged with consuminderen (consuming less). After a 8 day process in May 2014 about letting go of food, during which we did not eat or drink for three days we started a process to let go of food, in a natural, free and creative way. We find it a very beautiful, inspiring process to eat less and feel (more) conscious, experiencing what eating and not eating is doing to you(r body).

By being engaged with living on light see also our facebook page www.facebook.com/lichtvoeding we learn to know ourselves and each other in a different way. We live in a busy performance and consumption orientated society. We realize still more how dependent we are on food and how much time we are engaged with producing, transporting, buying, preparing and consuming of food. More and more people search for new ways, want to live sustainable, care for each other, live consciously, without alcohol, meat, medicine, vaccinations, with home schooling and sharing knowledge and experiences with each other.

We work hard, learn much about nature, about herbs, flowers and plants, old and new knowledge. Leonoor has contact with butterflies, who also come on her hand and flying over us, confirm us and inspire us to go further on this path.

Leonoor writes about the special contact of Leonoor and her mother, see page Leonoor-deelt.html.

Leonoor's mother Janneke, Marthe and Leonoor, 8 March 2018


Leonoor is the initiator of our living group Contact & muziek. She was a violinist and a violin teacher since she was 18 years old. She teached herself, Marthe, Jeannette and Erik to play the viola da gamba (viol) and the lute , two instruments from the renaissance.

After the 8 day process in May 2014 to be free from the necessity of food Leonoor
composed (Dutch) seven beautiful affirmations about love, light and the universe.

Leonoor develops new ways of making music, singing meditatively without a rhythm, with space and time for expression of words, like you recite a poem. Spontaneity, expressivity, creativity and spirituality, eating less, meditating and singing meditatively brings our life on a higher, lighter and more social level. Singing without eating sounds and feels spacious and open.

We built
bamboo flutes of one tone on which we can play melodies together. You can listen to us on the page music.

music lesson, (music) education, teaching materials

Leonoor teached music (viola da gamba, lute and piano) to children and adults and developed teaching materials (Dutch) and a new way of (music) education. Booklets (Dutch) with coloured notes and other teaching materials which you also can order.

Children (and adults) learned the music basics, in such a way that they really understand it. The children learn to make beautiful sounds and tones on bamboo flutes of one tone, and learn to play the viola da gamba (viol) and the lute.
We are engaged in a relaxed way with concentration, rest, (tonal) purity, working together, singing, (learn) to listen. We take time for new experiences, see

On our page activities there is an overview of activities from 2007 until now

Het is worthwhile to look at the teaching method Leonoor that developed with coloured notes at the page getekende muziek (Dutch [translation: drawn music]). She also made song texts and polyphonic arrangements of musical parts and songs.

Everything that happens with love has a healing power.
We are all connected with each other and one.
There is no distinction between me and the other.
Love connects us with each other
and solves all contradictions,
contact from soul to soul.
Every human being is a part of the whole
with his/her life and experiences.
