Are you ready to follow your heart?
It sounds so easy, ‘just follow your heart’, but how do you do that? Going about your demanding daily life, you feel you’re not living the way you would like to. But a different life can seem far out of reach. Even if you know it is possible, where do you start? And if it is not this, then what is it that you want?
After this program, you feel reconnected with yourself and the voice of your intuition. You have clarity on which direction you want to go and you set the first step already.
During the program, you will let go of the things that don’t serve you anymore, connect to your core, set your course from there, identify obstacles like your limiting beliefs and learn how to deal with these, get new perspectives on all that is possible, decide on your first step and take it. And you will do this together with a beautiful tribe of people that are on the same path as you are.
The sessions will include meditations, visualisations, sharing and movement (mainly the first days), as well as more design-thinking practices with brainstorming and post-it's (when we start to make things concrete). Also, you will get your hands dirty. So, we'll use all three: the heart, the head and the hands.
An example day could look like this:
11:00 working in the garden
12:30 preparing and having lunch
16:00 free time
18:00 preparing and having dinner
20:30 sharing circle/forest game
* Sitspotting is a very simple, yet powerful practice. On the first day, you will find yourself a spot in nature where you will return to every morning, just to BE, without any distractions.
This program is for you if…
You find yourself at a crossroads in life.
You want or need to change things. Workwise, personalwise, or both.
You feel there is more to life than you are getting out of it right now.
You feel you are living a life that others want for you.
You feel an itch, a little voice telling you you’re not living the life you want.
You have a billion ideas of what you would like instead, or none.
You want more nature in your life
You want to find your own path and have a happy and fulfilling life.
You are ready to follow your heart.
This is the beginning
We like to see our programs as stepping stones. When you return home, you don’t go back, but further. The program is the beginning. To make sure this program (and what it brings you) is embedded and integrated into your life, we include a 1 on 1 check-in call before and after your stay with us, for all programs.
"The sessions with Jorien bring me calm, clarity, and confidence. They bring me down to the ground and help me with making decisions and being in tune with my thoughts and feelings." - Elena, mentee
"I clearly feel again what is important to me and how I would like to give shape to my life. And I feel the power and trust to pursue this, to follow my intuition. It were intense days, and I can honestly say that you have changed my life. " - Ruben
"They help me with seeing issues from another angle and approaching them in another way. They help me to work through things I’ve gotten stuck on. And they inspire me and give me a lot of positive feelings and energy." - Ghali, mentee
Hello! We are Bastiaan and Jorien
We believe our relation to nature lies at the core of the transition to a healthy and happy world. Therefore, we envision and embody a nature-connected life.
Jorien's background is in business and sustainability. She has been working alongside social entrepreneurs, as a consultant for social initiatives, coordinating sustainable events and setting up a retreat venue in Spain. Meanwhile she has been unfolding herself on a personal and spiritual level through conscious dance (5Rhythms, Gabrielle Roth), indigenous nature rituals (VisionQuest, School of Lost Borders), mindfulness (Plum Village, Thich Nath Hanh), and as a Spirit of Nature guide. She has a strong intuition for working with our inner nature and our bodies, which she puts to use as a facilitator, space-holder and mentor.
Bastiaan studied economics, finance and psychology. His inspiration mainly came from his extensive travel experiences. During these journeys he broadened his perspective, learned from indigenous people and worked on permaculture farms. He continued his path by a dedicated (and continuous) self-study on the areas of permaculture, foraging, food forests, agroforestry, regenerative agriculture and more. He was part of various ecological projects in Mexico and Guatamala and put his knowledge into practice by creating a foodforest and kitchengarden in the Netherlands and setting up the holistic Land-management of a project in Spain, including a foodforest, kitchen garden and regenerative farm.
You can either bring your own tent or campervan, or stay in one of our spacious shared tents.
The facilities are basic but functional: there is a communal outside kitchen, dry-toilets and warm showers.
It's a remote finca: the water comes from the source and river and after use it runs back onto the land, the energy comes from solar panels. All organic waste (including from the toilets) is composted into fertile soil.
To get to the finca, you can either drive to us by car, or let us pick you up at Figueres Vilafant trainstation. This trainstation has good connections with Girona, Barcelona, Perpignan and Paris. Our programs usually start around 18:00 in the evening, and finish around 10:00 in the morning. We provide a pickup at Figueres Vilafant at 17:00h and drop-off at 11:00.
After you sign up, you will receive more extended information on how to get here. To make sure your timing is aligned with the times of the program and taxi service, please check this information before booking your travels. If you have any hesitations or questions, you can always ask us!
The price includes all food, non-alcoholic drinks, the program, and two 1:1 videocalls. It excludes accommodation costs, travel costs and potential costs for pick-up at the nearest trainstation.
The program price is €625,-

We like to have an intimate tribe, therefore there is a maximum of 12 people.
