There are two wolves inside of you
The wolf of personality and the wolf of Infinite love
Which one will win?
The one you feed

More and more people dare to trust the power of love in all aspects of life, without judgement or expectations. They share one dream: to be restored back to their original state of being, freed from all illusions and lack of freedom. They are the movers and shakers who are creating a new society where love becomes the legal tender. They are heart people who seek win-win in heart economics. They include superconscious business people, scientists, journalists, doctors, teachers, lawyers, politicians, bankers and many others. They are people forging organizations with the fire of Love, inspired by the Force of Life moving them toward a next step in human consciousness.

‘Pure Life is a choice and it’s time to make it!
- Paul Efmorfidis, CEO/Founder of COCO-MAT

‘Ivo Valkenburg (Netherlands, 1966) brings the world an important antidote to a global pandemic of debt money enslavement and trauma. Thank goodness that he did not despair over his financial problems and leave this earth, but instead chose to stay with us with a renewed passion for LOVE and a reminder that we all can and must pursue a pure life.’ 

- Mark Anielski, Author, The Economics of Happiness: Building Genuine Wealth

Ivo Valkenburg (Netherlands, 1966) stands for the enabling of an economy of well-being and happiness. He engages with substantial renewal of classical thought models and its practical applications. In doing so, he just looks beyond the material side of life. He considers that man again should correspond to the original state of being, ...

Editorial Reviews

'That’s right; we're talking too much about money and too little about love. Our friend Ivo Valkenburg combined both in his book Spirit in Finance. Very worth reading. ' Willem Middelkoop, author, journalist, entrepreneur & fund manager in News Flash Who are you still if you, as financial advisor, are almost bankrupt? That is what Ivo Valkenburg had to discover. This low point in his life earned him new insights. He now advocates the renewal of classical thought models in the financial sector and its practical applications. In his book ' Pure Life ' he writes about his ideal: an economy built on love. Bonnie van Doorn, CHANGE Magazine (Belgium) Valkenburg’s latest book is an absolute must. Valkenburg goes in-depth to that oh-so-important value – or perhaps the most important value of all: love – in a way that touches the reader. And this value is so desperately needed in the financial world. Willem Vreeswijk, VVP Magazine for Financial Professionals (Netherlands) You don’t expect from a financial expert who is active in business for 30 years, that he himself experiences a financial crisis. Yet it happened to the Ivo Valkenburg. Despite embarrassment, fear and frustration he continued onwards and began writing about money, love and forgiveness. His mission: a society of love where people, companies and organizations integrate love into their daily activities. His first book Spirit in Finance was theory, his recently published book Pure Life is practice. Daniëlla Sloots, Bliss Magazine (Belgium) In his book Pure Life Valkenburg shows how love can help man to rise above the world of duality. Duality is called dvaita in Hinduism. A-dvaita stands for non-duality. Love can help us to discover our true self, our Atman, in the language of Hinduism. "Where people innovate," Valkenburg argues, "also renewal and vitality will occur in companies and organisations. Classical organizational and business models, based on fear, control and rules are being exchanged, step by step, for new structures based on meaning, freedom and autonomy. " Rinus van Warven, Radio 5 (Netherlands) ‘An absolute must read! He challenges the reader, on the basis of examples and questions, to turn inward in yourself and go to the core. Because it’s all about that inner core. And that core is in us. ' Willem Vreeswijk, New Financial Magazine (Netherlands)
