- Inspiring people to search for their own life path. With this purpose in mind, Hans Kloosterman decided to write From snob to Monk. He describes his career in the corporate world, his entrepreneurship in the area recruitment, his luxurious life style, several relationships and the great turnaround. A car accident pointed him towards his real life path: Buddhism and detachment. Hans Kloosterman is a Tibetan Buddhist and studies at the Tibetan Kagyu Vasjrayana Institute in the Belgian town of Huy, which has a small monastic community with a few lamas', monks and nuns. He lived as a monk in training for six years and has been studying Buddhism for nine years. He teaches hatha yoga, chi kong and meditation. During his mindfulness trainings he teaches people to be completely present in the current moment with everything they do and to become aware on three levels: physical, emotional and mental. His mission in live is: Creating Awareness.
