Refresh Your Self
HOME OF INNERGY in Castell de la Solana offers an environment to, in interaction with others, take on your challenges. Realising your potential and making dreams come true often comes with hurdles and setbacks. It requires time and space, and you are the agent.
Maarten and Björn created a special place for you. A lush oasis of tranquility, in which individual, personal attention and proper nutrition establish the foundation for you to develop. Amidst the olive trees, you can find your feet, breath the air and get inspired.
Why? Because we search for a different kind of energy in this modern life’s flux. We like to be connected to nature, to that feeling we had when we were a young child, with others or, maybe, alone. Contact with real people, and talk about what it is that makes and shakes someone. Foster and nourish the connection with who we are, without running ourselves ragged. And provide others with opportunities to do just the same.
We can offer you extra tools and suggestions. Tools that may ease and scaffold the process an that you can take home. You could think of this as if it were extra nutrients, supporting an olive tree’s growth spurts. This nourishment consists of programmes offered by professional trainers. All aiming at helping you to grow.

“You’ll get to see that, like humans, also olive trees have their challenges.
At first small, protected by other vegetation, but once a grown up on their own. The struggles and triumphs cause the typical shapes that make an olive tree special. You too can turn challenges into unique achievements you can be proud on.”

balances between thinking and doing.

"I believe taking responsibility is important. Using one's daily practice and life to zoom in on patterns in behaviour, on beliefs, and on needs. The focus: what can you do differently to improve your situation?"

"In 1996, when I had some personal issues, I first experienced what it means to involve your body and physical experiences in therapy. I learned to feel and to express myself. My path took me from body-oriented therapy to working with family constellations and (OSHO) meditations. All evolving around the aim of bringing people closer to theirselves - from mind to heart."
