Dragana Van de moortel
I was born as Dragana Ilić on August 14th 1962 (04h45 a.m.) in Kikinda, Yugoslavia. During my work at the university of Novi Sad (Vojvodina, Yugoslavia) as a research assistant in organic chemistry, I did not know that astrology, with which I had been fascinated during many years, would be strongly linked with my life later. Afterwards, I achieved the diploma of the
Faculty of Astrological Studies (FAS)
in London (D.F.Astrol.S.). I also completed a training in marketing and management at the MTC.
Together with my husband I made a course on CD-rom
"Serbian language for beginners" for Dutch speaking people.
To relax, I like being in a Mediteranean environment, to swim and do belly dance.
Koen Van de moortel
I was born on april 8, 1962 (12h15) in Antwerpen, Belgium. Always being curious "how the universe functioned", I studied physics at the universities of Antwerpen and Gent. Since I discovered that many interesting subjects like astrology and parapsychology are left aside by most traditional scientists, I try to help to build bridges between the worlds of traditional and "proto-"science, by organizing lectures (more info in flemish) and doing astrological research. About that, I have given lectures in Belgium, Holland, the UK, the USA and Serbia.
When I'm not working, I might be hiking in a bird reserve with my photocamera, climbing somewhere to hunt for minerals, reading about scientific research, listening to a concert, cooking a vegetarian meal with some good Belgian beer or French/Spanish wine for friends, or when I'm tired of all this: watching a good film...
Some of my favorite composers: Johann Sebastian Bach, François Couperin, Sylvius Leopold Weiss, Dietrich Buxtehude, Domenico Scarlatti, Antonin Dvorak, Edward Elgar, Arvo Pärt, and favorite performers: The King's Singers, Collegium Vocale Gent, L'Arpeggiata, Bernard Foccroulle, Octopus-kamerkoor,...
A few of my favorite movies: "Powaqqatsi" (music: Philip Glass), "Dead man" (Jim Jarmush), "Amadeus", "Dances with Wolves", "Tous les matins du monde" (music: Le Sieur de Sainte-Colombe), "The purple rose of Cairo" (Woody Allen), "Daens" (Stijn Coninckx), "Il postino", "The witches of Eastwick", "Il vangelo secondo Matteo" (Pasolini), "Urga", "The cook, the thief, his wife and her lover" (Peter Greenaway), "La vita è bella", "Back to the future", "Schindler's list", "The sixth sense", "Ghost", "Salaam Bombay"...
Favorite wines: château La Ganne (Pomerol), château Kirwan & Rauzan-Gassies (Margaux), Léoville-poyferré & Gruaud-larose (Saint-Julien), and many more.
I have a son from my first marriage, called Aschwin.
