About World of Consciousness
Meet the CEO
Solange de Booij
Solange was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Due to the political situation at the time, she and her family moved to Brussels where she followed the Lycée Français and studied Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts. Today she works under the pseudonym Sokia.
The world is constantly changing and without awareness, it is difficult to navigate. Awareness is the greatest agent for change and for gaining different perspectives.
Solange was married to Albert de Booij, founder of the international platform World of Consciousness, which guides and informs people on their journey to awareness. After he passed away, Solange decided to continue his work.
We believe that change starts with awareness, the strongest agent for change. At the same time, we want to bridge the gap between awareness and action. Humanity and all sentient beings are suffering unnecessarily.
The world we live in is a unique and beautiful place. Nevertheless, people all around the globe are concerned with the way humanity is evolving. New generations are done with being kept in the dark, done with being oppressed, controlled, and exploited.
We strongly believe that ignorance is the root of most evil. In today’s world, economy rules over ecology, law over justice, fear over privacy, capital over morality, and disease-management over health care. We want to liberate people; turn misery into happiness and cruelty into compassion. We resonate with people who have become disillusioned with the violence, civil discord, crude materialism, and carnism of modern civilization.

The WOC. team selects many interesting videos, interviews, and documentaries on various topics, such as mind science, society, nature, health, nutrition, animal welfare, ecology, and cosmos.
This website is very dear to us since it is born out of a quest for truthful information. We keep an open mind to the world and do not let our spirits be imprisoned. We follow our bliss and act out of our heart, our divine spark. Let’s enjoy our journey towards greater awareness and fascinating knowledge. We are entering the Revolution of Consciousness and this will reshape humanity as we know it.
A roar for consciousness
The number of tigers on the planet has decreased from almost 100.000 to approx 3500. The main reason: the tiger is in conflict with mankind.
The tiger symbolizes the decline of our society as well as its values and norms. WOC. has therefore chosen the tiger as a symbol of a cry for change, for more awareness. A roar for consciousness.
Humans are in conflict with themselves and are apparently not capable of finding a solution.
World of Consciousness wants to help to find an antidote by spreading knowledge, insights, and wisdom by being your curator.
