Burnout Retreat Janine
“My stay with Ewoud and Marian helped me to take a new path. The voice-dialogue therapy has given me insight into the way my past has shaped me and especially how I am actually denying myself my own happiness The professional and extremely grounded way of working made me feel that I can always go to them and that they are very committed to you, even after the stay After years of regular therapy and all kinds of alternative therapy my problems are disappeared in five days I no longer have any physical complaints and am no longer being held captive by my own thoughts For two months after my stay I still feel lighter and happier and no longer consumed by my self-imposed sense of ‘must’ and will The delicious food and relaxed atmosphere feel more like a vacation than a therapy weekend and have really helped me to start a new path with a fresh start , especially with more confidence in the future.
Relationship Weekend Arte dell’ Anima
After 27 years, you know so slowly what you meanto each other. We had both a process behind us in which personal growth, and how we relate to each other, played an important role. The expectation with which we started this session was therefore modest. Both of us wanted more insight into our basic patterns and how they play through in our relationship …
The surprise was great when this expectation was immediately exceeded on the first day. Amazing how Ewoud and Marian work together and the precision which they together explaned the bare of our basic patterns. Our most primary patterns were literally placed in space surrounded with love and respect. A safe place where everything could and should be there. No need to play the stage or to keep up appearances.
The structure was clear: Exploring the patterns, elaborating the basic pattern and providing tools to continue with this. With this the whole was nicely finished after the third day.
And then of course there was the wonderful accomodation where it all took place. The farm is an oasis of tranquility situated in a beautiful landscape. In the front house we had a wealth of space for ourselves. Comfort topped with nostalgia.
The excellent culinary art of Ewoud, the hospitality, personal and loving attention of both of them made the whole weekend into a warm bath in which we could let go of old pains.
It will take some time to really let everetthing fall into place, but it already feels like we could step into the elevator. With Ewoud and Marian we have been raised one or perhaps a few floors higher.
Marian, Ewoud again thank you very much.
Personal Retreat Sander
A Personal Retreat at Arte dell ’Anima was a unique and healing experience for me. This is largely due to the extensive knowledge, experience and specific approach of Marian and Ewoud, who are “pocked and jagged” specialists in their field.
However, the deciding factor for me was the pleasant presence of themselves. Marian and Ewoud have elevated life to art and are able to play an important role in a process in which the experience of connection is central, in a involved, natural and sometimes humorous way. That is exactly what I got during my stay; I have actually been able to experience what it is like to “reconnect”. With myself, but also with others and actually with everything around me.
For me it meant the start of a process of realizing my need for that connection. I already noticed that this means that I am increasingly able to choose a lifestyle that suits me and where I can concentrate better on the here and now. And not unimportantly, in which I have more peace with the course of my life and the choices I make in it. Without immediately panicking and also increasingly without falling into depressive compulsions.
I can use the energy that I save with that to enjoy my life more and more. A life in which I know, feel and experience what suits me and in which I am connected again with myself and others.
Review Retreat Arte dell Anima
Een verblijf bij Arte dell’ Anima was voor mij een unieke en helende ervaring. Dat komt voor een belangrijk deel door de uitgebreide kennis, ervaring en specifieke aanpak van Marian en Ewoud, die ‘gepokt en gemazelde’ specialisten zijn in hun vak.
Wat voor mij echter de doorslag gaf, was de aangename aanwezigheid van hen zelf. Marian en Ewoud hebben het leven tot kunst verheven en zijn in staat om op een betrokken, natuurlijke en soms ook humorvolle manier een belangrijke rol te spelen in een proces waarin met name het ervaren van verbinding centraal staat. Dat is dan ook precies wat ik heb meegekregen tijdens mijn verblijf; ik heb daadwerkelijk kunnen meemaken wat het is om weer in ‘verbinding te komen’. Met mijzelf, maar ook met anderen en eigenlijk met alles om mij heen.
Het betekende voor mij de start van een proces van bewustwording van mijn behoefte aan die verbondenheid. Ik merk nu al dat ik daardoor steeds beter in staat ben om een levensstijl te kiezen die bij me past en waarin ik me beter kan concentreren op het hier en nu. En niet onbelangrijk, waarin ik meer vrede heb met het verloop van mijn leven en de keuzes die ik daarin neem. Zonder direct in paniek te raken en ook steeds meer zonder te vervallen in depressieve dwanggedachten.
De energie die ik daarmee bespaar kan ik steeds beter gebruiken om meer te genieten van mijn leven. Een leven waarin ik weet, voel en ervaar wat bij me past en waarin ik weer in verbinding sta met mezelf en anderen.
