What women are saying about this retreat

Tess van der Putten

“I feel that every woman in this retreat really got to the core of what she wished for.” 

Shanna Bercy

“I experienced the deepest connection to the Divine Feminine that I ever have. From not just this light, but down to the dark and the integration of both.”

Ankie de Wert

“Nicole is really good in guiding you into your own Power”

8 days to embody your essence so deeply that your vibration naturally teaches & assists others.


This is a unique opportunity to come to a place of deep union between the dark and the light, between the masculine and the feminine, between birth and death.

So you, together with your fellow change-makers, pioneers and revolutionaries can set the vibration of the new world. Simply by being you, by radiating your Essence and soul shine into the world.

The intention for this retreat is to bring an inner union between the dark and the light, the masculine and the feminine. Opening in the ability to descend deep into darkness, into your root, matter, the density of this human body. And open high into the light, your multidimensional being,  the subtle realms of consciousness & spirit. 
Feel safe in the density of your body -> the dark
When the root is feeling unsafe, when your lower chakra’s are contracted or hiding, afraid to live or to die, ashamed and insecure, all the other chakra's cannot fully blossom and lean on a solid foundation. This retreat allows a space for a solid foundation to root into your body and being. A shift from power from a place of separation into a primal power in full communion with Life. A stability, a sense of belonging, a deep safety in Love. When you feel safe you can truly allow in the fullness of Life. 
Open into our multidimensional nature -> the light
 When you trust in that which you cannot see and be in the flow of your intuition & inner guidance, your deepest calling can come alive. Your upper chakra's can open, have overview and see the higher wisdom of things. In this retreat you 
tap into infinite Intelligence, you tune in to what's already clear in the field and in you. 
Connecting to consciousness, to your intuitive abilities and the unconditional love of the spirit world. Waking up in your Light and moving through life with a crystal clear intuition. Sensing instead of thinking, trusting instead of doubting. 
Unify in the heart of Love
When you unify the dark & the light in your own body, you will naturally allow the fullness of your Soul to come through. This is what is also known as: Soul Based Leadership - Embodying your unique Essence so deeply, you naturally inspire, assist and support others. You become a walking transmission. 
This retreat offers a space to travel between densities, between worlds, between realities, to come to a place of deep union between the dark and the light, between the masculine and the feminine, between birth and death, living resistance-free from a place of deep love in our heart. 
“I experienced the deepest connection to the Divine Feminine that I ever have. From not just this light, but down to the dark and the integration of both.”
- Shanna Bercy

 "You have all the codes already in your body, the codes to land your Soul into Matter and live your Greatest Potential. This is the medicine the world needs right now."

Hukena embodies the union of Power and Gentleness in a unique way. She has the profound ability to hold a powerful and safe space in sacred ceremonies and does so with her "all the way from the core of the earth voice and guitar".

The chants from the Yawanawa people hold a strong force of transformation and liberation. They are known as priests of the voice for a really good reason :-)

Deeply rooted, connected, fulfilled, alive and in the flow.
Experiencing your primal power and a deep intimacy with the power of your intuition & clarity.
A deep communion with the intelligence of life. Fine-tuned in how you perceive the worlds inside and around you. As well as deeply rested as Love. Unafraid & courageous, you just Know and you are ready to face many unknowns because you are now grounded in your calling and comfortable with the dynamics of death and birth inside yourself and your life. 
Blindfolded with full trust, you now walk your path as a warrior of the divine. Awake in your Soul's vibration that naturally supports others in waking up in theirs. You are ready to bring your Soul's Radiance in service to the birth of a new earth. 

Grateful that you trusted the calling, the pull, the whisper that guided you to this event in the first place.
