Dear friends,

Life is so exciting, intense and joyful if you want to make it yourself. It’s like a ritual of coming and going, in an ever-rotating spiral from inside to outside to inside to outside and a game between all directions and elements: earth, water, fire, air / wind …

2019 is a powerful year of transition in which you are challenged to constantly go to your heart, authentic in life and stand and listen to what really is yours. We are all  ‘Searching Souls’! Searching for truth, (h) recognize that the roles of ego and what resonates with your soul and your heart, and what your true mission on earth is. This calls to step out your victim role, no more veils or masks, and to break free from limiting beliefs, harmful emotions and stories. True to be a Guardian, to create your own healing power, write your authentic life, beyond fear, with courage and confidence.

Everything is indeed within ourselves. It is up to each of us to make the choice, connect with nature, earth, water, fire and air, and all that is, to re-member our core and our own inner wisdom.

Welcome to participate in a ritual, ceremony, initiation, retreat or training in Belgium, Netherlands or Portugal. In the Temple of the Earth, surrounded by 700ha nature reserve in Aljezur, Portugal, all facilities are present to get away from everyday life
