Experiences Melanie & Marina

Melanie de Reus and Marina Feyz share their experience about the Sept '23 Young Wise Women retreat

Ready to put yourself #1?

Choose now to live and work meaningfully, vitally and happily and become that amazing woman you are meant to be. Not by working harder or doing what others do, but following your own unique course and making conscious choices.

Say goodbye to your "please" behavior, constantly adjusting yourself and having to meet standards and expectations. Say goodbye to bullshit jobs, FOMO and the risk of burnout.

From now on, you may make choices that are right for you:

- that give you energy;

- Who put you in your power;

- And make you happy again!

The Program

Day 1


On Fridays, we welcome you from 3:30 p.m. onwards!

We'll start at 4 p.m. with, among other things, getting to know the other women. Then we will discuss the findings from your Motivation factor test and there will be plenty of room to ask questions.

After dinner, there will be time for a short walk or rest. You will discover who you really are and end the evening with a sharing session, moments of reflection and a relaxing breathing session for a wonderful night's sleep.

Day 2


At 8:15 a.m. we start with a yoga session or other physical activity. Then we will have a nice breakfast.

The first morning we will work on your desires; business and personal. After all, without desires there is no direction. And you will learn how to deal with doubt and how to make clear choices.
After a super healthy and tasty lunch, you will mentally and physically release your limiting beliefs and blockages that stand in the way of your desires.

There is also room this afternoon for 1-on-1 coaching, moments of reflection and rest.
After dinner, we will close the evening with a sharing session outside by the fire.

Day 3


At 8:30 a.m. we again start with a physical activity. This can be yoga, a walk in beautiful nature or energetic body work. Afterwards you will enjoy a delicious fresh breakfast.

This morning you are going to let go even more of what doesn't serve you, so that you come even more into your power. And you'll work with the Motivation factor workbook to discover your pitfalls, energy drains and energy contributors.
After a top-notch lunch, you'll be ready to start manifesting your desire in a guided session (physical, mental and emotional).

Around 4 p.m., we'll wrap up with a cool "game" that will bring you energy, confidence and focus.
So by 5 p.m., you'll be able to go home relaxed, happy, full of inspiration and with concrete tools to thrive professionally and privately.
