We are An (Ann) Paridaen and Gerard Beltman. We live in the Netherlands. We organize intimate retreats, hikes and pilgrimages in the Netherlands and throughout Europe. You could say: hiking with a spiritual aspect.
The Dutch name ‘Wandel naar Jezelf’ means something like “Wander into Yourself”, get to know yourself through hiking. We offer a respectful and safe space where people can relax mentally as they enjoy being physically active outdoors. We think having fun is important too!
Ann is life coach and yoga- and meditation teacher. Gerard is also life-coach. We are a support for you, whatever is present in your life and what you are up to. We speak Dutch, English, French and German.
For our pelgrimages, see below. Brochures in English are available for download.
For our retreats and hikes in the Netherlands, see the Dutch pages.
