Awakening unto yourself

Soul Collective offers unique and transformational Soul Retreats and is founded by experienced mental healthcare professionals.

Our organisation bridges the gap between psychological interventions, bodywork and grounded sexuality.

We provide a program with several transformational Soul Retreats as a 4-day process in a safe space close to nature. These retreats support and boost the transformation of the relationship with yourself, with your loved one(s) and with life itself. The implementation and integration process has a huge impact, personally and in all your relationships.

 

Our host venue, 'The place to Be', is a magical place on Landgoed Slangenburg in the middle of nature. The historic Brunsveld farm, built in 1921 by the residents of Kasteel Slangenburg, has been converted into a place for retreats, workshops, training courses and other gatherings. From the ceremony room, the Sacred Space, you have access to the vides with more than 100m2 lounge area. Outside are several fire places and a barrel sauna with outdoor shower to relax. And the Barn offers a wonderfully spacious covered terrace.

We offer a variety of retreats, both Couple Retreats and Single Retreats.

Intimacy

A deep dive in consciousness

"As we grow in our consciousness, there will be more compassion and more love. Unconditional love really exists in each of us. It is not 'I love you for this or that' or 'I love you if you love me'.  It is a state of our deep inner being."

Ram Dass

​This beautiful animation is about the impact on relationships.

We created this animation to show the archetype conflict in relationships between intimacy and sexuality. The root of this conflict must be seen in the context of your own childhood family dynamics. In relationships the collision of two family systems can be overcome with our type of healing work and your growth in awareness and consciousness. This healing work and growth can be experienced in one of our Couple Retreats.

For Whom?

For the brave who are willing to face their demons and their own pain

For whom?

For the brave who are willing to face their own demons and their own pain.

Unfortunately, it is not unusual in (romantic) relationships to lose connection with each other, to misunderstand or to blame each other at times. The foundation of these dynamics is our unconscious loyalty to our own system of origin. Let me explain:

 

When that initial attraction and ‘falling in love’ wears off, it becomes clear that two partners are very different and prioritize different sets of values. Especially when raising children, this can become quite clear. What used to be so appealing in the other person, could now become a source of irritation or blame. And this can become very painful.

If you look at it from afar, you can see there are two family systems bumping into each other which causes bruises and/or distancing. Normally, you might start blaming or fixing the other person, but when you are brave enough, you take responsibility for your part in this dynamic. Face your own demons and take upon your own pain (connected to your childhood).

As a child, we project the ideal of each archetype on the parent of the opposite sex, and later on we project it on (romantic) partners or associates. This is when we get stuck in our relationships and what stops the growing process. The entanglements come from the collective subconsciousness, and because we are not aware of them, they are hard to recognize.

The archetypal principles, male and female, are both present in every human. Men embody the male being; the male principle. Women embody the female being; the female principle. Every human, male, female, neither or both, desires growth. The ultimate growth a person can experience is that in which the male and female principles come together and merge. One cannot exist without the other. The female openness and receptivity feed the male discernment and decisiveness, or the other way around.

 

Soul Collective offers Couple Retreats in which your unconscious dynamics become very conscious, giving you more clarity and insight into your own and each other’s inner processes. This will support you in finding your way to live the lovelife that you love.
