Level 3: The ART of Leadership

hemrik, netherlands

September 6-13, 2022

New Eden Retreat Center

New Eden is a unique residential retreat center surrounded by 50 acres of calm and quiet land, 90 minutes from Amsterdam. For over 25 years, this land has hosted hundreds of events and brought inspiration to thousands of participants on the path of personal transformation.

More than a venue, New Eden is a healing environment perfectly suited for deep-dive immersive experiences, where they take great care to provide an inspirational, peaceful, comfortable and ecologically friendly environment. As this will be our second time hosting our Level 3 course at New Eden, we know that you’ll be treated like family, enjoying serene accommodations, nourishing and healthy homemade meals, while being surrounded by pristine and breathtaking nature.

Watch their video to learn more about what New Eden has to offer, or check out their website for more information on this gorgeous transformational oasis. We are so looking forward to being back!

Whether you’re lounging by the fire, meditating in the forest or the zen room, or resting in your room or a hammock outside, New Eden is designed to bring your heart and soul deep rejuvenation and well-being.

While the retreat center has much to offer in itself, the nature experience is the essence of the heart of New Eden. Take a walk in the forest, lay in the grass, sit by the pond, listen to the birds (storks, hawks, chickadees, woodpeckers and more), grab a bike and take to the beautiful forest trails (you’ll find hidden lakes and cafes along the way!) – New Eden truly is Oasis. 

New Eden delights in introducing the joy of beautiful vegetarian food made with love, that is sure to fuel your body and soul. They use local organic ingredients (many from their own garden!), and believe that it’s the best food in in the area.

Their guestrooms, common areas and event spaces are simple, serene and gorgeous, designed with participants’ peace, comfort, relaxation and rejuvenation in mind. Sunny and spacious throughout, New Eden is the perfect place to let your authentic self truly come alive.

New Eden’s central location offers a plethora of other activities during the downtime at the retreat. Visit a local stable to take a ride on a stunning black Friesian horse, take a short drive to several local spas and saunas in the area (New Eden is happy to make reservations for you!), or rent a bike for quick ride to local art galleries, shopping, restaurants and cafes.
