This preventive intervention is available for In-Company annual well-being plans - LIVE STREAM ONLINE RETREAT
A complete internal reset to re-connect with nature, yourself and others
Human-challenges of the 21st century include unexpected crises, burned-out people, the rise of technology and information overload. We need new skills to thrive: human-skills or what is sometimes also called life-skills. Inspirational experiences with nature-based content can build a strong foundation of human-skills such as resilience, focus, collaboration, creative problem solving and leading others.
Human-skills drive your vitality and employability. Re-connect deeply with nature to heal your body and restore your mind. The techniques and insights can help creating inner-peace, as well as dealing with distractions, allowing you to grow from within. Only on new paths you can grow. The people around you, your projects, your organization can only grow if you grow. Re-connect with your inner wisdom and wholeness, from where all new inspirations, insights and creative solutions can grow. As John Muir said, ‘Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.’
This unique seven-days online (live streaming) program is a complete internal reset for you to re-connect with nature, yourself and others. It is your unique and individual journey that you set up on with a group of others from around the world. With this sense of connection and community, walking this path can be easier and more fun!
You will receive carefully prepared daily invitations from wise minds to reflect on, and to help you rewild your mind and spirit. On top of that, you will join a LIVE stream nature-based experience, daily. Discover the impact of virtual Shinrin-yoku nature and forest therapy walks and see what the technique can do for you in your daily life. Learn to relax on an emotional, physical and mental level with the practice of deeply relaxing EcoNidra. Re-discover your body as an intelligent living ecosystem. Experience how writing can restore human connections. Learn about the impact of nature on your plate. And more. Each day you will receive a meditation on nature sounds. Use this Rewild Yourself experience as a period of time for your own well-being and transformation and it will help you to take control of your personal and professional life.
Monday 10 – Sunday 16 July 2023
Daily global invitations to reflect and rewild during the day in your own time. Daily meditations on nature-sounds, to be enjoyed in your own time. Daily LIVE streaming nature-based experiences and workshops from 16.30 – 17.30 hrs local time Amsterdam.

Being deeply connected to (our inner) nature has a positive impact on our mental and physical well-being and therefore contributes to our resilience and vitality.
Nature heals the body
Nature connection practices reduce the feelings of anger, fear, and stress and increase well-being. The sense of connection to the whole not only makes you feel better emotionally, it activates the parasympathetic nervous system which is responsible for the stimulation of “rest-and-digest” state that is deeply healing for body, mind and emotions in the ecosystem of our bodies. Some of the physiological benefits include a general sense of wellbeing, reduced blood pressure, slowing down your heart rate, release muscle tension, and lower the production of stress hormones.
Nature restores the mind
People who connect with nature experience an improvement of their mood; changing from depressed, stressed, and anxious to more calm, balanced and grateful. Nature connection is associated with a positive mood, psychological wellbeing, meaningfulness, purpose and vitality. Nature connection restores your attention span and increases the ability to focus. This provides a break for your overactive mind, recharging your mental batteries, refreshing you for new tasks and mission.
Nature inspires feelings of connection
People who have deep nature connection have stronger feelings of unity with their communities whether these are colleagues, clients, friends or family. They are more concerned with helping and supporting each other, and have stronger feelings of belonging. Nature connection will activate the parts of your brain associated with empathy and love. Nature inspires feelings of connection to each other and the larger world of human and non-human beings.

What other people say:
‘This program demonstrates how technology can also connect us with ourselves and others.’
‘The retreat gave me new insights and good tips about a healthy body and mind. The program was very good and professional and the connection created with the coaches and other retreat members was amazing.’
‘Very personal approach, nice that it lasted the entire week so it really had an impact on me. Very interesting topics, amazing to learn about EcoNidra, forest bathing, embodiment. And nice that there was a lot of flexibility, everything is OK.’
‘I realized that being more aware and changing perspective in live can open up to a whole new world. I do not have to travel to discover new things. It is just around the corner if I open up for my senses.’
‘A boost for your energy.’
‘Rewild yourself is a great retreat for a personal reset. It offers a balanced program for mind and body that enables you to fit in your own daily schedule and to connect with others. What I found striking was the impact of nature in audio recordings and meditation exercises while consuming it online/digital. The daily invitations from people working with nature around the world helped my process of resetting. Everything was all integrated and the social connection with the group was heartwarming although we couldn’t see each other in real life. It proved to me that a retreat can be done online as well!’
