GAIN A FRESH PERSPECTIVE
Are you seeking more in your life? Would you like to discover how to improve your lifestyle, mindset or relationships?
We prioritize a mental, physical, emotional, and energetic safe, and expertly-held environment in nature, therefore our retreats also take place in a legal or decriminalized setting in the Dutch and Portuguese countryside. If you’re looking to understand yourself at a deeper level and make positive changes in your life, our transformational retreats can help you do just that. In fact, past participants often tell us that their retreat changed their lives in a deeply profound way.
After a five-day stay at one of our personal growth retreats, you will be able to embrace yourself wholeheartedly with newfound resilience and clarity for your next steps in life. We create and facilitate life-changing processes that set you on the path to improve the health and wellbeing of your body, mind, heart, and spirit.

Our ProcessOverview of Experience:
The in-person five-day immersive includes in total four live group calls of 90min each.
During those calls, we will have dedicated time for preparation and integration, with tools such as:
- intention building
- diet requirement
- flower essence intake prep/healing
- cognitive, and emotional tools
- journaling exercises
- and more...Intake Process:
It is important for you and the facilitator to establish trust and rapport. This is essential for loving and safe guidance. Therefore, we will start with an online introduction chat of 30min. We both should feel into each other’s personality, ability, and readiness for the initiation, and of course, you might have questions and be in need of feedback.
During the discovery call we will walk through the following:
· Establishing rapport between participants & practitioner
· Developing personal intention
· Physical & mental, health screening including contraindicated conditions & medications
· Other necessary information for your participation (diet etc.)
· Privacy & Confidentiality
· Providing a clear overview of what to expect from the experience through the integration
