Resilience Retreat for Men

Friday, 28. June 2024 until Sunday, 30. June 2024 10:00 - 16:00


In a society that often emphasizes the need for men to be strong and unemotional, it can be challenging to understand and express your feelings. Exploring the softer aspects of oneself is a relatively new concept for men, and it is wonderful that you have found this adventure. It demonstrates your desire for guidance in this unfamiliar territory.

"The Resilience Retreat for Men" is a transformative adventure to assist men in navigating breakups without closure, healing from past traumas, and untangling personal complexities. Through introspective exercises, practical tools, and carefully curated practices, you will start a journey of self-discovery.


What to expect of this Resilience retreat

We will get physically together in a forest in France for 3 days. During these 3 days:

  • We will dive deeper in different sovereignty themes each time while connecting with nature.
  • We will work in a small intimate group of maximum 4 other men to create a stable and safe group.
  • Connect with nature and dive into survival skills. Have you ever made an open fire, slept outside in nature and swam in rivers? That's what you will do here. 
  • There is no set up program. Instead, we flow through the day without sense of time and schedules. This is a time to BE with yourself and your emotions. We will hand practical tools, lead conversations and support you in redirecting your compass back to self. 
  • NO luxury, instead you return to your WILD and BASIC self. There is no running water or electricity 


This retreat is for you if you're ... 

Motivated to change. Change doesn’t come overnight, but requires deep inner motivation. We are here to guide and support, but the work is up to you. How would it feel for you, if you are able to feel and address your emotions? How would it be if you're able to maintain healthy relationships, first and foremost the one with yourself? 

  • Looking for a way to navigate through a breakup without healthy closure and seeking support in guidance to process your emotions
  • Curious about the basics of life and want to experience what it means to live in nature  
  • Struggling for personal growth and self-discovery 
  • Seeking for a way to create stronger and healthier relationships


What is included in this Resilience retreat?

This is a 3-day adventure in the midst of our forest. For the journey itself we ask for a financial exchange of € 489,- which includes:

  • Discovery call beforehand
  • Healthy organic, local and vegetarian food that we will prepare ourselves on an open fire (3x breakfast, 3x lunch, 2x dinner)
  • Basic accommodation in a woonden cabin or hammock - or you bring your own 
  • Coaching and practises from Melissa & Marjo 
  • Learnings about basic and natural forest living such as making a fire, archery, sleeping outside, etc. 
  • Integration call after 1 or 2 weeks 
  • Option: Include online coaching afterwards to secure changes in your daily life (personalized)
  • Option: Book another Inner Compass session to integrate your lessons. We advise at least 2 sessions or a year program (personalized). Change doesn't happen overnight and requires constant awareness. Reach out for the possibilities. 


Extend your staying

We are located in a beautiful natura 2000 environment and it would be a pity if you'd only come over for a 3-day retreat. Therefore, we suggest you extend your staying up to at least a week. We have a camping, a tipi, birch room, Tiny House, or Stone House available. Let us know your preference and we'll discuss availability. In case you'd stay here for one week, we offer the following total prices (2 nights in the forest and 5 in an accommodation). This is calculated from Saturday to Saturday, except for the Inner Compass in June which goes from Thursday till Thursday: 

  • Tiny House: € 1.042,- 
  • Stone House: € 839,-
  • Birch Room: € 699,-
  • Tipi: € 699,-
  • Camping: € 541,50 


Ready to join this Resilience retreat? 

Reach out in case there are any questions. We have been on a journey ourselves and know how challenging it can be to take the first step. We are here to offer support and answer all of your questions. You can either book instantly or send us a message. In case you really feel the calling to join this retreat, but can't make the financial exchange (in one go) reach out. We are open to discuss possibilities. Hope to see you in the forest soon!

With love, 

Melissa & Marjolein 🌻
