Weekend Retreat

In this powerful retreat you can free yourself, and allow yourself to rejuvinate, empower, gain a new perspective, and change your life!

Healing Journey

We will do a series of trance dances, embedded in a program of meditation-, body-, breath- and soundwork, to energize and explore different aspects of our being.

It’s a healing journey!

Through it your mind clears up, and you profoundly (re)connect with essence, and with the source of life and creativity itself. This can bring mental clarity, healing, creativity and growth.

Profound Connection
with Essence, Source & Creativity!

Moments of silence, and time and space for yourself, are interspersed with group activities. We will work with:
