This location is perfect for Plant Medicine Retreats. Easy to reach from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport, Cosy, very Clean, Eye for Details, Peaceful and full of Love. Some Shamans call this 'VIP-Plant-Medicine-Retreats'.

This location has 4 bedrooms with an option for a 5th possibility. There are beds for 12 people, but we have 19 extra Mattresses. So with Plant Medicine Retreats some people sleep in the ceremony room. This always works perfectly fine. The maximum amount of people is 15 participants.

There are 2 bedrooms with a double bed. At one of the rooms you can separate the beds. Both of these rooms are having a wonderful view over the water.

There are 2 bedrooms where you find bunk beds. In total 4 bunk beds, so place for 8 people.

Villa Maria Johanna has 2 toilets and 2 bathrooms. One big bathroom with a bath. The other is a small bathroom with a shower. It's possible for us to provide towels and beddings. We have more than enough.

The best part of this location is the beautiful view over the water and the peaceful energy.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
