A weekend for the senses, the body and the mind – empowering you to tap into the wisdom of nature in all walks of life  

Join us for a weekend dedicated to women who desire a new way of coming to life and showing up - in the workplace, at home and in their life. 


This weekend is dedicated to diving deep into the wisdom of nature applied to leadership, work lifeand lifestyle. We all hear about creativity and innovation non-stop, of new resilient and agile organizations – but what does that mean for the individual? How do you tap into ways that fill you up and nourishes you with respect for the cycles and seasons of life? How can you help blaze the trails to a new regenerative way? 


What is the new way life-affirming way of leading organizations, teams and projects? What can presence, stillnessand a close connection to your nature within and around you teach you about your essence and creative life-force? How can the wild at our feet be a masterful teacher, partner and source of inspiration in your everyday life? Nature lends her wisdom to all these questions and this is what we will uncover. 


Over the weekend we will explore how having a deeper relationship to nature can support you to show upwith presence and authenticity and how you can design your workday, meetings and approach to innovation processes in a way that feels creative and rich? HOW WE ACCESS AND CONNECT TO IT WILL BE A PART OF THE PRACTICE DURING THE RETREAT.

We will provide tools, business cases, personal stories, exercises and wisdom for the logical mind as well as guiding participants through an embodied experience sensing into the wisdom and intelligence of nature. 


Some of the questions we will address:   

  • How can you in the workplace combine the wisdom of nature’s cycles, principles and rhythms to tap into a hidden potential, get inspiration for workflow, team-work, processes and design? 

  • How do you dance between the logic of the left brain hemisphere and the creative powers of the right brain hemisphere? 

  • How can you show up in a powerful way deeply rooted in your true essence? A way that restores and regenerates instead of exploit and diminish?  

  • What are the new paradigm-shifting regenerative business models that respects our precious eco-systems while also catering to the well-being of employees and partners? 

This weekend is designed to inspire you and infuse you with the tools you need to pave the ways in the workplace towards a new way of embracing the nature within and around in the workplace.
