New location! Since 2022 our main center is in the province of Girona, where the Pyrenees meet the mediterranean sea, just under the most southern coastline of France. The medieval watermill with 4 artisticly renovated guest rooms with bathroom on the river side lies in a green valley surrounded by olive groves and wineries, hills and mountains dotted with age-old ritual stone formations, truly a magical area.

Aleid Warmelink is a qualified psychologist and yoga instructor with over 20 years of experience of therapeutic work. Doby van den Berg is a massage and Reiki therapist as well as chef. We facilitate the retreats working as a couple, sometimes adding other therapists to the household.

  • you want to enter a new phase in your life more consciously and energetically
  • you are overburdened or becoming so
  • you would like to spend time on personal development out of interest
