Resilience as key for a happy life

The ability to adjust to certain situations that appear in your life is essential for many reasons. Our pilgrimages will help you: 

  • Be better capable of dealing with stress and feel less overwhelmed.
  • Adopt a positive mindset; you look at challenges as learning moments instead of obstacles you can't overcome.
  • Improve communication in your relationships, as higher resilience leads to flexibility and understanding.
  • Develop determination and trust in yourself and your capabilities.
  • Find it easier to deal with traumas and difficult life problems.

Overall, people with a high level of resilience are more positive-minded about themselves, others, and the situations they encounter, which ultimately leads to a happier life.

Upcoming events at the Center of Resilience

We frequently organize events to enhance your resilience and can't wait to welcome you in our HOME. You will be treated as an equal, and we ask for the same level of respect in return. 

Have a look at the listed events below and reach out. Do you have another request? Let us know! Some events are upon request and set up for you personally (such as a vision quest).

"Come to the trees to forget and to remember. To forget the straightjackets of manufactured time and cubicles. To remember something much older than the Gregorian calendar and the 40+ workweek. Come to the trees: to touch and be touched by something more primary, more whole." - Gavin van Hoorn

What Visitors Say About Us

Choosing the right guidance during a journey of self-discovery is essential. Here you can read what others say about the Center of Resiliance and our support, which helps you understand our approach. In case there are any questions; reach out. 

"I did a retreat with Marjolein. As a director, but also privately, I had been anchored in my thoughts and actions for years.She offered me an individual program. It was the beautiful conversations, through Stoic philosophy, the silences, the cooperation in the food forest and the twenty-four hours in seclusion that led to very beautiful and valuable insights.

Marjolein has the skill to arrive at new insights in a relaxed but certainly challenging way, without convincing what is right or wrong. It was the "power of the mountain" and the "compass" of Marjolein that together achieved the effect that she managed to inspire me with.

This investment was very valuable . I look back on a fantastic week with this intriguing, quirky and smart coach."

"I came to the forest de dragon for letting myself be embraced by the trees and the waters. Often when I wanna dive deep within to adres these automated re actions for really making a change. My tree friends are to show me and embrace me were I still hold on to outdated experiences from the painful past. Also the beautiful water in this little valley is of a cristalline quality that nourished my blood back into more healthy ness with her lovely murmures and songs.

Marjolein co created a beautiful simple place with all her nature friends, visible and invisible to unwire from daily life and re wire our cristalline frequencies to go direct with source consciousness. Big thank you to all that contributed. And I surely hope to re turn and play more together."

“My inner fire had been quite extinguished by several events over the past few years. I was looking for the place to heal. A post: "Stay in the Dragon Forest". This immediately appealed to me and I sent a message to Marjolaine. Three days later I arrived in the Dragon Forest. It was like coming home.”

"I would like to share with many people about this place. I would prefer to keep it to myself .. together with the thoughts and feelings I have experienced here.

Yet I don't.

I want people to be able to come and experience for themselves. How simple a life of respect can be. Experience how important slowing down is. The day let itself be pushed away before my eyes. The sun crept out beautifully here, the bees apparently played tag. That wonder is what everyone should be able and want to experience more.

Thanks Marjolein and Mike. See you, a smile, a wink and a pat on the back,

Joram (sitting on a chair, amazed by the valley)"

Hi, I'm Mike

I am a micro entrepreneur and an all round forester and agriculturalist for over 40 years. My way of harvesting is to maintain the forest in a balanced way.  In this way timber production can be done in a responsible and sustainable manner. Where possible I very much support continuous cover management.

Are you interested in buying wood or made wooden products? I'm your man! Have a look at the services below and reach out in case there are any questions.
