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 have 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 have taken me. Issues that I have been struggling with and running into all my life they have finally managed to bring to the core in these 2 retreats and made them many times more manageable and lighter for me. I finally stand in my power again!
Over the past 20 years of trying this in many different ways through the regular Dutch system, I have not even come close to where they were after just a few sessions. I didn't think 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 still there for you at all times.
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.
Relationship Weekend Retreat
About three weeks ago we followed a relationship retreat with Ewoud and Marian. It was a nice, beautiful and special weekend. The moment we chose to seek help for our relationship, we were together for about 9 years. We are still young, 23 and 26 years old, but it was worth saving our relationship. The weekend at Arte dell 'Anima has made many things clear to us.
Actually, the first session made clear where the sore points were and we discussed how we could process this. Ewoud and Marian are so well attuned to each other that a pleasant and especially positive atmosphere emerged, in which we could be ourselves and in which we also mainly looked at the improvement and not just the difficult times behind us. Outside of the sessions we were pampered and very well looked after.
We actually concluded that it would be a supplement, enrichment or addition for each couple to follow this relationshop retreat at Arte dell 'Anima. Whether you have problems in your relationship or not, it always has added value.
Dear Marian and Ewoud, thank you so much for what you did for us. We are back on the right track and you have taken care of that. Some moments are still difficult, but other moments are better than before. We look forward to a future together in good spirits.

Review Relationship Therapy Weekend Arte dell' Anima
After 27 years, you gradually know what you have in common. Both have a trajectory behind us in which personal growth, and how we relate to each other in it, has played an important role. So the expectations we started this session with were modest. We both wanted more insight into our basic patterns and how they play out in our relationship...
Great was the surprise when this expectation was immediately exceeded on the first day. Wonderful how Ewoud and Marian interact and the care with which they uncovered the basic patterns together. Our most basic patterns were literally put in the space with everything on them and surrounded with love and respect. A safe place where everything could and was allowed to be. No need to act or keep up appearances.
The structure was clear: exploring the patterns, working out the basic pattern and providing tools to continue with this. This rounded things off nicely after the third day.
And then, of course, there was the wonderful place where the whole thing took place. The farmhouse is an oasis of calm situated in a beautiful landscape. In the front house, we had a sea of space to ourselves. Comfort topped with nostalgia.
Ewoud's exquisite cooking, hospitality, personal and loving attention from both of them made the whole weekend a warm bath in which old pain could be loosened.
It will take some time for it all to really fall into place but it already feels like we were allowed to step into Ewoud and Marian's lift for a while and we were taken up one, or maybe even a few, floors.
Marian, Ewoud thank you very much again.
