Each of us acts like a candle,
lighting other women’s candles until our whole world is illuminated ♥

We are connecting women from all over the world, building a platform and community where we can support and inspire each other as well as explore what it means to be a woman in today’s world.
Born from a desire of connection, to our bodies, emotions, dreams, our center and to our radiance.
We come together in day, weekend or week events to experience different parts of ourselves. Every aspect of woman is unpacked – sensuality, body, health, spirituality, career, self-worth, confidence. All guided by international, loving and passionate facilitators.
Re-connecting with ourselves, in a safe and loving space as well as a time-out just for you, meeting like-minded women and have some fun together!

On top of that you will experience the culture in our retreats by blending in with the local community through their food, music, dance, language and the local environment. At the moment you can join us one time per year for a week long experience, in new places with new and like-minded women while we stay connected through our online platform.

We give you a experience! A holiday with depth, where you will bring home a full experience which you will enjoy long after while having continuous benefits in daily life as well.
Our events are always put together with love and care, bringing you the variety of offerings as in a festival, while keeping the intimacy, depth and personal care as in a retreat.
You will be welcomed in a community of love and support, which allows you to fulfill your dreams.

“Open your heart, fling your hopes and set your dreams aloft.
I am here to hold your hand”

“Since I can remember I always wanted to experience life to the fullest, experience the beauty of this world, breathe it all in. Growing up in a village was safe and peaceful, but not big enough for me. Choosing a study Tourism was my “escape” to spread my wings and fly.
Over the 7 years that followed I worked in the tourism industry as a holiday representative in several countries. How I always loved to connect to the culture, eating local food, learn other languages, sing along local songs while driving around in my car, mostly on sunny islands and indulging in the romance of it all.. this time brought me great joy!

After a few years working with tourist was not fulfilling anymore, I was looking for something with a deeper meaning, figuring out how I could serve others which came with a longing to get to know myself on a deeper level as well.
My Winter travels lead me to Thailand where I found a place that supported me to connect to embodiment practices, several healing modalities and a whole new tribe of inspiring people. All I experienced during this time was precious, but breathwork was the most powerful for me and I found my new passion and purpose; to connect the world through the breath and using the breath as a guidance to come back home, to yourself. Just like it did for me.
The following years I passionately shared my workshop The Breath Journey in over 8 different countries, welcomed hundreds of people and up to today, I still love sharing the healing power of the breath. Training’s in yin yoga, massage and Maya Abdominal Therapy brought depth to my own experience and sharing this with others too.

By teaching these workshops I ended up at Sound & Silence Festival in Corfu, where 3 years of co-organizing would follow. This opened up a another new world for me, full of music and art. From here I ended up organizing a monthly conscious club night in Amsterdam which made me re-connect to dancing, a lot! Ecstatic Dance Festival was the next creation, which I am currently still organizing each Summer. Being part of all these events brought me the gift of attending some of the amazing workshops/classes that were programmed.
In here, I could experience different aspects of myself. Dancing wildly or softly, authentic relating, workshops about sensuality, setting boundaries, meeting your shadow, just to name a few. While I enjoyed these new experiences, often I was feeling a bit lost afterwards and missing the depth and support after experiencing a workshop like that. Being a observer and investigator, I was receiving the same feedback from other women.
The desire to create a more intimate space and container for women arose and here I am now, ready to share the unique creation of the WOMAN Experience with you. This has been and it still is, a creation process of several years, which I could not do without the support of my sisters and growing team of beautiful women. By experiencing not only the dreamy bubble of island lives, but also my own dose of insecurities, burn-out, trauma and fears over the course of my life. I feel all my experiences so far, brought me to this point.
Combining my love for travel, cultures, health & well-being, conscious living, co-creating, organizing and coming together with like-minded women is a dream come true!”
I am looking forward to welcome you at one of our events and give you a big hug!
