About The Events

Joy of True Connection – Spiritual Retreat

This is a call for our time: to relate with presence, skill, and heart. A conscious, new way that helps us to feel alive, awake, and connected! And together we resolve the suffering we carry from past generations for so long.

If you are on a spiritual path, naturally you wish to relate consciously with each other. You want to truly see, hear and meet with another in a real and deeper way. And you probably experience this: we want to connect, but we also run away from each other. In our relationships, we experience all kinds of weather –  excitement, tenderness, fear, pain… You feel vulnerable. How do you connect with all that, deal with the challenges, and grow joy? And how do we heal the wounds between the feminine and masculine? It seems like a lot.

But, when conscious connecting becomes our spiritual practice, everything is possible then. The doors to understanding, healing, awakening, and love swing wide open for you.  

Grounded spiritual teaching, deep meditation, connection experiences with yourself, each other, and horses, and powerful spiritual practices for a new way of relating will support and inspire you during this special retreat. We join to create a revolutionary trail – for your life and your relationships, and this troubled, beautiful world to evolve and thrive!


We gather in a beautiful retreat center, where heaven and earth meet. Here you are invited to experience:

* how to relate with authenticity, loving presence, body and soul.

* how the dance of relationships can take you into sacred union of the heart.

* how to embrace our human vulnerabilities and deal with relationship difficulties and traumas with grace and ease.

* how horses help us to deeply connect, heal and change old patterns of relating

* skills for a resonant way of communicating, which leads to true connection.

* integration of the feminine chalice and the masculine sword.

* a powerful and ancient healing ritual between women and men.

* the Council of all Beings  


As a special treat, we will be learning with safe horses during a part of the retreat. Their magic will help us deepen our connection with ourselves and each other and open the heart to joy. No experience with horses is necessary.

And we will dance the 5 Rhythms with Sabine De Clerck, a fantastic dance teacher, to support us to embody this resonant way of relating.  

This retreat is ideal for singles and couples.

Join us for a life-changing retreat, where real love is given the prime seat – between us, alive, in the here and now!
