Wonderful days on Faial island with the private retreat. The places of power experienced in silence. Enjoying all the elements with rain, sun and ocean wind. And many wonderful conversations along the way. Thanks for being there.

May 02

The first 'Vacation time on Faial' was a great experience for the traveler. An offer of accommodation and visiting the most beautiful places on the island without a retreat program. This with beautiful weather, contact with the many animals on the island and experiencing the whale- and dolphin boattour.

March 15

We had a beautiful 1 - 1 retreat on São Miguel. 5 days on the road to show the island and let the participant feel what requires attention. Which brought flow and relief and insights to move forward with. Thank you.

How nice to be invited for a 1day retreat at Pico. A day with a silentwalk, meditations, swimming in the ocean and personal coaching at a beautiful spot at the island. If you like..you can book this 1dayretreat at different islands.

January 31

This year started with 2 private retreats at Faial. With the oceanwind to blow the head empty and the feet grounding on the volcanic soil. Nice to see and hear which practical exercises and insights are taken home so that they can continue on their path. Thanks for being here.

The 5-day private retreat at Terceira turned out to be a good choice for the participant. She booked without expectations and dived in with her wish for these days. And what a lot it has brought her: rest, silence and awareness. She will take this, and the practical energetic exercises, with her to her life back home. Thank you were there.

What do you take home of this retreat? Some answers of the participants: 'The nature and its silince', 'The grounding and  knowing now how to do that." "The many insights I got about the question that I had for this retreat." "The fun, the conversations and the repectful contacts" "Being serious and also feeling pleasure and room for fun". Thank you all for these nice words.

Lovely people from different parts of the world. All with their own question and wish for this retreat. Wonderful days together where the highlight of São Miguel were visited. Where the clouds above the volcano craters sometimes obstructed the view, and where the flexibility of the participants meant that beautiful silent walks were made at lower power spots. And all with peace and relaxation in body and mind, thankfully ended the retreat.  It was great to be together these days. Thank you.

A beautiful week we experienced together at Terceira. A private retreat with the discovery of the natural and cultural beauty of this island with our own car. Offering a program of meditations and practical energetic exercises to clarify the participants question for this week. In order to experience peace, in the here-and-now, and to be able to give this further attention at home. With momets of silence, nice conversations and a lot of fun. Thank you for being there.

Rediscovering your true nature on this nature-rich island, São Jorge. Walking together in silence and enjoying beautiful views over the breathtaking ocean along the way. It was lovely.

July 15

The first private retreat on Faial was delightful. 5 days with each other and also with enough moments for ourselves. 5 days in nature. 5 days in which, due to the offer and program adapted to the participant, the answer to the question submitted and her wish became clear and she went home again in her strength. Thank you for being there.

March 19

Back from a wonderful week in São Miguel, where 2 more participants joined at the last minute and we experienced this week with a complete group of 7. Feeling the island and feeling yourself (again) releases a lot and gives so many beautiful insights and flow of bodyenergy. We explored the island from 'our' house by bus, enjoyed everything that came on our path and enjoyed each other. Thank you for experiencing this journey. It was wonderful.

I just came back from a trip to São Miguel. So good to be there again after one and a half year. With beautiful people discovering the island and themselves by meditation and relaxation. Feeling their energy flow, just like the waterfalls, full of water because of so much rain. Als in this season its nice to be on the islands: peaceful, quietness and tranquility.

What a special retreat we had. And 'we' are 1 participant and me. A personal coachingtrip, in which the participant the retreat started with a personal question to get clarity in. With of course attention for the beautiful nature, the silence of this month on the island. Nature, silence, coaching, energetic treatments and her effort changed a lot. More connected with the feeling again, full of new creative ideas and ready to make nice changes when coming home. We are both happy. Grateful.
