What is offered?

Awareness-based circles:

- every morning to start the day and welcome what emerges in you for the coming day

- every evening to end the day and see what you want to integrate out of it

- supporting connection with self, others and nature

Combined with some supporting mini-practices, such as basic meditation, basic conscious touch, writing… and whatever (creative) practice you want to bring with you yourself

Special attention for integration and taking what comes out of this week home with you

Lots of free time for ‘just being’ or ‘doing what wants to be done’ that day

2 beautiful hikes with breathtaking views

1 day excursion to local harbour-places

Healthy delicious vegi food: nourishing breakfast and dinner

Possibility of socializing at the cozy open-air ‘Wilson’s bar’ in afternoon and the evenings

Our basic principle:

We give ourself and each other freedom before anything (honouring each others boundaries). The retreat offers several possibilities, however non of them is obligatory. We invite you to feel into what you really need or want, and to follow your inner intuition on this!


No experience what so ever needed, everything is beginners-friendly. People with experience in the done practices are also very welcome to join, and invited to refresh with ‘beginner’s mind’ or deepen their experience in the magical environment.
