by a beautiful lake


A lot is asked of us. We invest heavily in re-enacting the patterns in the systems from which we emerge. Time after time we are brave enough to look everything in the eye, say everything. Risking our own affilitation. We make our bodies available to allow information and energy to flow through. 

Selfcare is not a luxury, but a necessity. Especially with the intense and never-ending questions from our customers. Recognizable? Then this retreat is meant for you. 



what to expect


We will be staying in 2 luxury lodges close to the village Rovaniemi, near the Arctic Circle. Right on a lake to watch, swim in or row on. You share a room with one of your travel companions. There is a chef who will prepare healthy, wholesome meals for us.


All activities are meant to connect with yourself, to cleanse and restore through nature. In contact with the earth. We spend a lot of time outside. The mornings provide space for stillness. In the afternoon we go out. At night we swim, light the fire and we follow what is there.


In daily life we follow the rythm of our diary. Our clients know exactly how long something can take. At this retreat we follow the rythm of life itself. Without wanting to influence or manipulate it. Maybe we will even follow the rythm of earth itself.


Don't expect a closed program. Everything breaths, this retreat too. We have invited a local poet, fruit and herbs forager, shaman and poet to spend the afternoon with us. Connected to ourselves, these people and the moment, we create what is possible.

You are responsible for your own flight. We will advise you about the possibilities, but you make your own choices. From the airport we will use rented minivans.

the origin of this retreat

"Working with Sarah is a celebration. Sometimes we are so aligned together, it feels like we span the earth together. Despite it being impractical being at the other side of the globe from each other, Every time we finish a project I think 'now it's been enough'. And then something new arises. From our connection, from our availability. This is how this retreat was created."
Siets Bakker - the Netherlands
“In Siets' presence, you experience her alignment with the flow of life, effortless and ease combined with exploring and vitality. It is an invitation to be open for what wants to emerge. I find it irresistible and expansive. I now simply wonder what will come next, not knowing if something will or not. And somehow, something new, fresh, and enlivening arises. I choose to follow the movement that arises in me. It has always brought wonder into my life.”
