Linda Keen and her husband, Aart DeWaard, are founders of Mens & Intuitie, one of the largest schools for
energy awareness, intuitive healing, and psychic reading in the Netherlands. In 1993, they left Aart’s native land
to go live on the West Coast of the United States with their four children. A few years later, Mens & Intuitie
was sold to several graduates of the school who continue to keep the spirit of this wonderful institution
In 2002, Linda received her Masters of Science Degree in educational counseling. She consequently worked as a
counselor for Foster Youth Services within her local school district to help bring healing and transformation to
the grassroots level. This entirely new vocational avenue proved to be deeply challenging for Linda as well as
profoundly instructive and rewarding. She has also worked as a regular onsite school counselor since 2003. Her
husband, Aart, is busy completing his 13th year as a science (and recently, gardening) teacher at a public Waldorf
Methods inner-city high school.
Linda and her husband have four children. They have discovered how a large family has been able to provide them
with the constant challenge of bringing spiritual understanding into daily routine. Linda considers this challenge
to be the most essential aspect of existence — especially in relation to her healing work, her writing and music.
Integration of all that we know and can accomplish remains her mission.
Linda has been featured on national television and radio as a writer and has written five books, two of them
children’s books. She has recently completed a poetry collection, Shoving Off From the Shore — A Book of Collected
Thoughts. She is also busy with a new children’s story based on life experiences of inner city children.
A quote by Dr. Seuss, who shares the same birthday as Linda (March 2nd):
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t
