About me

I am Caroline Dusée.

A Dutch cultural anthropologist, researcher, writer, speaker with a love for other cultures, personal growth and raising more consciousness about universal themes.  For over the last fifteen years of my life, I have lived and worked in different countries and continents for my work as a researcher. Among them, mainly South America and Africa. Currently I have been living for the last several years in The Netherlands, splitting my time between The Netherlands, South Africa. And sometimes the many other countries where I conduct (field-) work.

I grew up in a small village in the country side of the Netherlands. My upbringing and own history have been quite unusual. Due to my own background, where I grew up on small estate, with a father who was a cultural anthropologist and a mother from a wealthy family background. It was the place where my love for nature, spirituality and other cultures bloomed. But also the awareness of the inequality in the world. But also by the many losses that I endured in the first part of my life. These components and events, have later resulted in being the core and fundamental basis for my working themes and research topics. Just as well as the source from where I tell the stories of people from other cultures and share my own experience and vision.

More important than my traveling- life and the cultures where I immerse myself in, are the valuable messages and deep insights that I gain and like to share, partly based on my personal experiences as well as my field researches.

As a researcher and fieldworker, I spend a lot of time with local cultures. Besides that I live part of my life in the ‘Western world’. To bridge between both worlds, I hope to bring a message that is more profound than the fashionable stories and carries a more personal and ‘authentic voice’ as well from my own perspective together with the cultures where I work.

 

Themes

Core themes in my work are: Men and their hidden grief and emotions. And the relationship between men and women.  Death and loss, Money and power and Awareness and spirituality.

The way I speak, write and share my stories, always is a combination of the cultures where I work and where I have been invited to be part of as a fieldworker. Combined with my personal life and history.

All my work is about personal growth and awareness. I like to pay attention to stories that mirror hope and strength to change.

Men and their side of the story. A several- years long research I have carried out in mainly South Africa and partly the Western world about and amongst men. Their pain, their struggle and their vision on their position towards women. Expected book publication 2018. Documentary about the same topic in making for 2018/ 2019.

A book with a different and more positive view on death. Based on my own life history whereby I lossed both my father and brother in two different car accidents and later my dear friend and loved one in another accident. Aside from the loss of two other important men in my life. My life has been deeply touched by death. Therefore with my writings, I will offer a different but also lighter and more positive vision on how to look on death and deal with it differently than we are used to.

Through my own family background and my journey for many years in my working life in poor countries, I have been deeply intrigued by the many sides money has. The beauty and light it can bring into the world and the setup of my foundation with inherited money. As well as it’s negativity, fear and deeply rooted power structures that frequently hide behind it. In my working life I speak a lot about money and transformation for the good.

Our Western world is ingrained with being fast paced, with accomplishments, achievements, an outward focus, reasoning and thinking. Through research and the many years I spent in other cultures, I saw and came across a very different way of living, and how we can live from a more silent and intuitive source.

Victory for Equality

In conclusion: In 2006 I’ve founded the Victory for Equality foundation. Named after my deceased brother Victor, who died in a car accident. Over the years, the foundation has grown into a valuable foundation, where we support and implement projects that focuses on suppressed population groups. We currently support projects for women and men, establishing an environment where we bring women and men together to create more equality and understanding among them.
