School for oneliness

Living in the Netherlands in an ‘unknown’ environment can present the necessary challenges. You are busy building your ‘new’ life such as your home, interior, job, new friends and acquaintances. But despite your ‘new’ busy life, loneliness can still strike.

Then, sometimes it seems as if everyone is working against you: your customers, your clients, colleagues, your manager, your parents (in-law), your friends and maybe even your own partner. You know somewhere that everyone wants the best for you, but at the same time it doesn’t feel that way. You catch yourself having hostile thoughts, you get stuck in worry, and all in all, you are not the best version of yourself. 

You go to your (company) doctor, you follow programs with psychologists and therapists and you reconnect with that one good friend who would understand you. But no one, from professional to intimate acquaintance, knows what’s really going on inside you. Despite all good intentions, they can’t help you. 

In this very personal crisis you can feel alone: you do not feel recognized and understood. We know this feeling like no other and found out that it can ultimately be traced back to one basic emotion: existential loneliness.  

You have lost contact with yourself and subsequently with your environment. The connection has long been present in yourself and with our learning program Unlock, Open up! we go on a journey of discovery together to rediscover this connection.

The essence of being

It is nice to notice that you are not the only one who has life questions. And also that it is not about superficial subjects, but about the essence of being.

Dissecting Loneliness

I have experienced dissecting loneliness (and / or a lonely situation) as the most valuable part of the learning program.

The most essential way

The way you approach it is the most essential way. By going to the base, the rest changes with it.

You remain connected with the School

What I like about the learning program is that it doesn't stop after completing the meetings. You stay in touch with the School and you can continue to learn or add something yourself.

Existential loneliness

The approach to loneliness as being existential loneliness gives a lot of recognition and hope that there is a way out for everyone.

Substantially strong

I find the content powerful, clear, also for people who do not have much knowledge about the feeling of “Oneliness” and also a wonderful start to integrate Oneliness for yourself into your life.

For everyone

The learning path is useful for everyone, lonely or not. There is a lot to recognize in the stories of others. Furthermore, there is enough laughter and it never gets heavy or emotional or difficult. In short, a wonderful reset button for everyone.

About us

The School for Oneliness is an idea of Sander Ritman and René Waterreus. We have both gone through a period in our lives in which we have deeply experienced existential loneliness. By examining how we limited ourselves and what really inspired us, we have gained insights. The main insight is that there is essentially no distinction; we call this Oneliness. We developed a learning program and the idea arose to start this movement together with like-minded people.
