Review Personal Retreat Arte dell' Anima

"As a performing artist, freelancer and entrepreneur I function in a world with very little stability. My art is my being and the driving force, but the real life beyond imagination and flight can at times be overwhelming. The past summer I got the biggest wake-up call of my life. For the first time ever, I froze and became overwhelmed by mere fact of living. 

I am trained to always push my boundaries, to focus, to aim for my goals may it be physical or mental. I have been through 2 hard core surgeries and got back on stage, I travel the world with my work on a frequent basis. Yet, all of a sudden my soul was calling me to stop, it was hurting. It was such a scary experience and I knew right then and there that alone I will not make it - I need kindred, experienced souls to help me see my light again so I can keep on shining. 

Dear Ewoud and Marian were already present in my life from several months before, but on that specific period I was so privileged to have them by my side at every step of the way which they still do: my journey had started with them on a 5day retreat but it continues and still evolves even whilst writing these precious lines.

Through the guidance of Ewoud and Marian I went through a transformative, life changing experience. Together with both of them by my side, supporting and loving, I was able to go all the way back to the purest source of my essence, where I emerge and where myself and the world meet. I can honestly say, that without them I wouldn't have made it to be where I stand within myself today. 

They have this rare gift to see humans for who they really are, without projecting assumptions or ideas. They have the capacities to manifest sense of freedom and embodiment with the way they work. This is all taking place within the one of a kind home/ space, they created for us humans to have a little breather from life, to give ourselves the gift to listen, to heal and embrace the most beautiful version of ourselves. 

For anyone who is courageous to call for a change, invest in the work and allow himself/herself to be vulnerable in a safe space - Arte dell' Anima is a home for you".

Review personal Retreat Arte dell Anima

I experienced Ewoud and Marian as two enormously special people of integrity.
Very professional, but also very warm, loving and personal, and always extremely respectful.
I attended 2 retreats with them in a short time (1 x relationship therapy & 1 x personal growth) and never dared to dream that I would get as far in my personal development as they got me. Issues that I have been struggling with and running into all my life have finally been brought to the core in these 2 retreats and made many times more manageable and lighter for me. I finally stand in my power again!
Over the past 20 years of trying this with all kinds of other forms of therapy, I have not even come close to where they were after just a few sessions. I did not imagine at all that this result was achievable.
Once at home, you notice that what is tackled during the sessions is worked through and actually implanted in your daily life, in a practical and manageable way. Should there still be issues you are struggling with after the retreat, they are always there for you.
I feel very blessed that Arte dell' Anima came my way and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who gets the chance to attend a retreat with Ewoud and Marian. This is a life changing experience and a fantastic investment in your life, I cannot put into words how grateful I am for this experience.


Review burnout retreat Arte dell' Anima

These people, this special environment, this loving attention.This is the place where I have been helped in the inner process of healing in complete safety, and from where I go into the future stronger.
Every time, because these warm wonderful therapists are the only ones I am absolutely sure can make a difference of night and day.
Thanks to Ewoud and Marian, issues I have struggled with all my life have been mapped out so clearly and old patterns have been broken.
Tools I have now, to stay with myself and move forward.
I am grateful for this encounter and the support I have been able to receive!
I wish this experience for everyone, in whatever situation.

Review Burnout Retreat Arte dell Anima

I made the well-considered choice of making this retreat a personal gift to myself.
The initial contact was spot on and the right cord was immediately touched.
The 4D System Coaching is fast and extremely effective. All my questions, themes (even more) were fully addressed. A creative holistic approach that is effective for any individual in both private and business development.The stay at the venue was extremely soothing and healing.
An inspiring environment, creatively designed and built with love.
In my opinion, the quality aftercare once again endorses the quality and profesiionality of this team!
I highly recommend Ewoud and Marian for anyone ready for the next step.
Prepare for unprecedented journey, back to yourself!
