Hi, I'm Nicolas, the man behind Nivista. Our emotions, the way we act, and the goals that we pursue are all connected to our internal stories. In my own personal journey, I've lost and found myself multiple times. In fact, like many of the people I've worked with over the years, I've faced several issues on the path to self-discovery, including addictions and self-destructive patterns. I suffered from depression, experienced a number of painful burnouts, and struggled to uncover my own potential.

I grew up with little insight into who I was as a person, and what I could be. In the search for meaning, I dedicated my life to a process of self-discovery, that began with accepting and becoming my authentic self. Over the years, my personal quest has helped me to discover some vital truths about the myself, and what it takes to overcome challenging obstacles in life, from depression, to addiction, and even burn out. 

Throughout countless challenges, I've begun to find myself, and discover a deeper meaning in who I am as a person. I believe that Nivista is my opportunity to share the lessons I've learned with the people around me, teaching unique methods of self-discovery and empowerment that give individuals facing trouble the chance they need to regain control of their lives, and make decisions about their future.

I was born in France, and lived in multiple areas throughout Europe, South-East Asia, and Africa as I grew up. I'd explored 11 different countries by the time I was 15, which means that my exploration of the world has become a major part of my identity. As a teenager, I moved into the Netherlands, where I settled down and began to find my place in life.
I achieved my bachelor of Engineering, and worked as an engineer for several major gas and oil companies before I began to pursue my purpose in life. In 2017 I was initiated as a monk in the Vaishnavism tradition.


Thank you for taking the time to see what I'm up to. If you have made this far and you can identify with my story, then I would love to hear yours.
