  • Descripción


    Living in an old farm in the forrest belonging to a 600acre nature estate called 'Slangenburg'. We are renovating the farm to a meditation centre where we will hosts people for daily yoga classes, meditation, silence, nature and sauna. Owls, deers, hares, pheasants and many other birds belong to our daily guests around the house. From the dirt road you walk directly into the forrest. It's one of the few places in the Netherlands where it's really still and really dark at night. We moved with our 3 daughters (3, 6, 7) from Amsterdam to this beautiful eastern corner of the country to realize our dream; creating a sanctuary to connect heal and grow.

    Our company is purpose driven. We are a social company, not for profits. It's our aim to make retreats available for everyone.

    Living in this beautiful part of the Netherlands is a nourishing. You can start the day with a walk in the forrest to enjoy the silence and the big and old trees.

    What we have to offer is nature and silence. The ultimate place to live mindful and really live in the nature. We are trying to create a modern monastery for mindful living. From all volunteers we ask them to respect the nature and the quietness. And all our meals will be vegetarian.

    There are 7 castles to visit in this area of witch one is our neighbour. Many walking tracks en biking tracks in this forrest ore in nearby forests.
