As an extra, there is the possibility to book individual sessions in body-workhealing, massage and counseling with the session givers that are with us during this week. These sessions are payed separately to each session giver.

As we have some amazing musicians with us, we are delighted to have live-music to many of the workshops as well as sound healing concerts and other musical highlights.

She is a world traveller, creating sacred space, women’s retreats, Living Intimacy workshops for couples, tantric gatherings and private sessions for over 25 years.

It is her passion to inspire you to live your full potential – using both her extensive training and rich life experience, as well as her intuitive guidance.




The Shaman

Marcoleon Baas (Netherlands) works as a Chinese Doctor using acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, Massage and Shamanic Rituals. His life is dedicated to bring all these healing methods into a in fusion to create new ways of healing. Together with his wife Lale he created Danspaleis030 (a spiritual dancing place), the Diamond Dance (combination of biodanza, voice and bodywork) and he hosts Ecstatic Dance Utrecht. You can find him in his practise or as a teacher (dancing, singing, acupuncture  and as a musician). 




The Healer

Prem Vimal G. Gabrielsen (Norway) works as designer and Healer. Together with her partner Praful, she travels all over the world sharing her profound gifts of Healing – through sessions and their ‘Healing Sound–Healing Touch’ event. When working with the healing, she is in a strong place inside, in the Self. From there she channels and transmits what is. “I am not ‘doing’ it, simply let this healing move where it’s needed. It knows.” Vimal explains. “This experience continues to grow stronger and stronger.”




The Sound Wizard

Praful (Germany) is a master sax & flute player, charismatic performer and pioneer in the world music community, who embraces Jazz, Soul, Dance, Indian and New World Fusion with grace and passion. He melts in love and joy with the listener and lets them disappear in sound and silence. Praful’s 8 solo albums garnered great international success. He performs all over the world at spiritual gatherings, plays regularly for teacher/author Eckhart Tolle and composes for Mantra singer Deva Premal. 




The Alchemist

Lâle Freie (Netherlands/Turkey) has been learning and working in the field of theatre, dance and personal development for the last 25 years. The accumulated life lessons enabled her to lovingly peel away our layers of defense, through movement (dance), inquiry, sharp observation and trusting her strong spirit. Her fierce ability to contribute the best, in any situation, is out of pure love and perceived as confronting. Together with her husband Marcoleón Baas she's on a devoted path of healing. This through organizing Festivals, creating and giving workshops on dance, masks, body release, partner training, inquiry (Almaas) and so much more.





Elie (France) has gathered his sensitivity into creating a new type of music blended with love, colors, silence, sensual rhythms and magical sounds from another dimension. When he is not in his studio, you can find him in spiritual festivals or Sound Transmission events, where he plays live music to create soundscapes by recording layers of melodies and rhythms with his loop-station, allowing a full range of frequencies to re-align body and mind and nourishing heart and soul.
