About this trip

Following your dreams is exciting, but also quite scary. What if you fail? Or don’t live up to your own expectations or the picture that others have drawn of you. We are often afraid to go off the beaten track. The track that “society” has set out for us. These beliefs are so deeply rooted into our systems. But you are the only one responsible for your happiness, no matter what that looks like. Deep down inside you already know what you want from life. What is holding you back? Most likely, just you. What would your life look like if you lived it on your terms? What does happiness mean to you?

This retreat is for women who are prepared to take the next step in their career, business and life. 

Under the guidance of experienced transformation- and negotiation coach Merel van der Wouden and certified yoga teacher and breathwork coach Malou Zuur, you’re going to let go of who you think you need to be, and start owning who you are in your true essence. 

Choose, jump, grow

Through transforming sessions, yoga, breathwork, hikes, the company of like minded souls, and enough you-time, you are going to make a deep dive into your own essence. You will get to know yourself on a deeper level, by recognizing and breaking through (old) patterns. After which you will be prepared to choose, jump and grow. Because deep down you can’t wait to make the next step in your business or life. Creating a life on your terms only. Try saying this out loud; “I live on my terms only.” Doesn’t that make you feel powerful already?

You will get answers to questions like;

  • Where would I like to be?
  • What are the first steps towards that place or feeling?
  • What are you prepared to invest or to change to get there?

Transformative group energy

The first steps towards change are always the hardest ones. The beautiful thing about this retreat is that you won’t have to do this alone. You will be supported by the energy of other women, going through the exact same thing as you. Don’t underestimate this very powerful transformative energy. It will lift you up and give you wings woman!

An investment in yourself

Skip one festival this summer, a new outfit and a fancy dinner, and you’ve already earned the biggest part of the participation fee for this retreat. Set your priorities straight before you think you cannot afford something like this. 

The worth of this retreat is much higher than the price. Usually Merel’s masterclasses of 1 hour cost 1.333 euro ex VAT.

  • During this retreat Merel will give no less than 8 sessions! 
  • You will become part of a valuable network of female entrepreneurs 
  • You have an all inclusive stay in luxurious villa

The price for this 5-day retreat varies between 1700 and 2400 euro (depending on the room type), so do the math. This is your sign ;)
