walk in 8 days to insight
Find peace, focus and inspiration
under the Spanish sun
Charged by the Spanish sun and probably with tired legs, you will leave Gran Canaria after a week. Inspired and motivated you return home with more overview than you have ever had. You pick up your life with full of confidence, and with both hands. You gained an unforgettable experience , you have made great new friends and you can from now on enjoy the delicious Spanish cuisine at home. But above all, you know that from now on walking gives you peace of mind, overview and insight to make decisions. And that those decisions will only be successful when you keep looking at the world from different perspectives.
Depending on the group composition, the program is in Dutch or in Dutch and English.
6 inspiring walks that will trigger you
Walking has a special effect on the brain. It calms your brain and neutralizes stress because walking uses those parts of the brain that produce stress hormones. During a walk they are no longer able to do this. The outside air makes your brain function better. By walking in nature for a few days improve your intellectual capacity up to 50%. That is why often when walking the best ideas come to mind. And then it also influences your mood enormously positively.
Hiking in Gran Canaria is a special experience. You will be surprised in every valley the varied nature that the island has to offer. It is not without reason that the island is listed no less than 5 times Unesco World Heritage List. And the island was declared one by UNESCO in 2005 World Biosphere Reserve because of the enormously varied nature on the island. During the six walks below you will discover this diversity with your own eyes.
We walk over the edge of the largest volcano crater from the island. Bare rocks and volcanic grit alternate with greenery. On one side of the path a view of the crater and on the other side of the sea or the mountains. Then we will visit the sacred mountain Humiaga and discover the imposing fortress that the original inhabitants built here.
Overview and action through 1-on-1 coaching
During the walks, cooking and meals there is plenty of opportunity to talk, exchange ideas and learn from each other's experiences. But you achieve the optimal result during the 1-on-1 coaching. During the first session we make you personal wheel of life. I explain how that works in the video next to this text. This handy remedy quickly gives an overview of your life. Based on this overview, we choose which aspect of your life we will work on this week. Every day we work together for 30 minutes. In total, we will work on your development for about 3.5 hours. I am sure that you will return home as a different person.
what they say about me
Photography to look differently
Everyone sees the world differently and experiences situations differently. That is because every person has his own perspective applies. You can easily learn through photography to look at the world in a different way. For example, by zooming in on the details, zooming out to the whole or opting for a completely different perspective. If you are aware of the different perspectives, you can use them to reach your goal more easily. Because if you look through the eyes of a different people, you know exactly what they see and what is important to them.
relax on the luxurious finca oasis
Our home base is Finca Oasis near Telde. You have access to this your own place where you can retreat to let the day sink in.

During this week we cook together with a local chef that introduces you to Spanish cuisine. For example, you learn to prepare paella and Rancho Canario. And you get the recipes home, so that you can surprise family and friends with the most delicious Spanish dishes.
