  • Description


    Hello loving people,

    We are an enthusiastic open-minded retreat centre with yoga tantra and art courses, a non-profit assosiation run by Tantra Yoga teacher Wim and art teacher and Tantra therapist Chandra.
    We like to bring people together in a green, calm and inspiring environment. You are more then welcome at our Centre for personal development and consciousness in our spring cimmunity and summer volunteer team.
    Team Coordinator Anna will guide you through the process of becomming a member of team 2023!

    Possibilities in 2023:

    1. Be part of the spring conscious community! Our center opens her doors from 14th of april to 21st of July. Come join us from 1 week up to the whole period if you like! Daily 3 hours community work, DIY, gardening etc, and time for yoga practice, meditation and co creation with like minded people from all over the world!

    2. Be part of the volunteer team in summer. 21st July to 28th of August from a minimum stay of two weeks to support the Yoga - Art and Tantra week retreats, helping behind the scenes cleaning, making peanut butter, kefir, gardening, etc.
    You are in a team of approximately 8 to 12 volunteers. Next to your working hours you can attend a daily workshop!
    Every volunteer has its own working schedule of 5 hours. You do cleaning, DIY/gardening etc. Depending your skills.
    Sent us your email address and we sent you a script, its very detailed, but it gives you a good impression of the help, and we make a video call to already meet online in advance.
    What we offer you in return: Borrow a pop up tent from us og stay in own tent on the camp site if you prefer that. Food and drinks. Next to your 5 hours help you can attend a daily workshop!! (f.e. conscious dance retreat and Tantra festival)

    Do not forget that working on and around the property is not more than moving a pile of stones from one place to the other. What's really important is YOU who's doing it, ..........and the most important Tantra lesson.... we expect nothing else than 100% of your presence.
    We work on normal speed to be able to be present in the here and now = not in slow motion, for we want to appeal to our full potential as a healthy human being, not in acceleration, for we want to be concious of the steps we take along the way.

    A stay here is all about being who you are. Being alive, awake, conscious, being present in the here and now. Putting as much love as possible in what you are doing.

    All meals are vegetarian and of course for free..... And YESSSSSSSS we have a sauna ...)

    For the safety and peace of our 2 cats and the chickens, we can't allow dogs on our property.
    The minimum age is 23 years.
    Important, we say NO to alcohol and drugs (incl plant medicine), it is a reason to ask you to go somewhere else.
    Let us know if you are up for this once in a life time experience!


    Chandra, Wim and Anna
