We are (em-) powered by our operations guru, Joanna, who will be organising your tailor made offer so you have a worry-free stay, your way.
Aleksandra is our lead coach and is safeguarding our clients’ therapeutic processes and experience. Our top coach also selects, trains and educates new staff. Aleksandra brings harmony and life to those she connects with.
We are here to hear how we can support you and explain what we do, how we work and answer all your questions.
For most of us, providing this sacred service is the most valuable way to spend our limited time here.

Fleur started on a journey, about 10 years ago. After struggeling with anxiety and severe overthinking for a big part of her life, she decided to do things differently. She dived into the world of mindfulness, psychology & spirituality, transforming herself from a wallflower into her authentic self. She went on many explorations, both in the outer world & in her inner world, where psychedelics played a big role for her. During this process she discovered her interests and talents and she learned everything about the human mind & behaviour. Fleur now uses her experience to help others to live a more authentic life.
Practical yet deeply healing; she uses meditation for healing therapy sessions. With her calm and emphatic presence and by asking the right questions, Fleur helps people to transform limiting thoughts and behaviour into clear desires and practical goals.
Realizing that her fascination for psychedelics goes very well hand in hand with her work, Fleur wanted to take it to the next level; combining her work with trip-guiding to come to even more powerful results.
