Welcome to a journey that opens doors to imagination and sparks your innate powers. This is a workshop focused on existential health and wellbeing.
- Are you ready to explore the purpose and meaning of your life?
- Do you want to walk, contemplate, listen to music, and do art in amazing nature?
- Are you longing for a life with more freedom and deeper contact with nature?
You will meet other curious women on a quest for healing, meaning, and fulfillment.
We walk on ancient donkey trails in a land-scape filled with spring flowers, fragrant herbs, and old olive groves. Maybe we stop to contemplating under a shady almond tree. Or reflect by doing some creative work.
We take picnic lunches with breathtaking views and have dinners at the four-star Alahuar Hotel beautifully situated in the high mountains of Benimaurell.

The Journey of Life
We are remarkable beings who have the power to create vital lives and live with satisfaction, delight, and excitement. We all experience limits and challenges.
The aim of this workshop is to explore what creates meaning in your life. We will provide a permissive space for healing and sharing of life stories. And use imagination to invent new stories about who we are and want to become! We need each other. We grow in relationships and in contact with nature. This is a room for surrendering, releasing, and opening the heart to new adventures. Your body carries wisdom and guidance. Trust the creative life force to support your journey.
Margareta: PhD, licensed psychotherapist, music- and expressive arts therapist and educator.
She has conduced research on women's existential and sexual health using arts-based psychotherapy to address trauma and distress after cancer. She has worked with individual clients and facilitated groups for about 35 years. She trusts music to open expanded states of consciousness and spiritual experiences. She knows the arts are powerful paths to self-knowledge, profound change and healing. Margareta is dedicated to supporting women finding ways to live an authentic life with strength, vitality, and grace.
Jeanne: MA, biologist, nature educator, Waldorf teacher and hiking guide.
She comes from Holland, fell in love with the Spanish culture and nature, where she has lived for 35 years. She has dedicated her life to teaching and founded a Waldorf school in Spain close to Altea. For many years she lived and worked at a spiritual retreat center. Jeanne is a devoted nature lover engaged in ecology. To her the mountains are sacred places. And she loves taking groups - especially women - to meet the mountains and experience the great teachings of nature.
Margareta and Jeanne have been close friends for over three decades.
You arrive at the hotel on April 29. We start every morning with guided music meditations and poetry. After breakfast we go for a mountain walk. Now and then we will stop to rest, maybe do some art, contemplate, and reflect. We speak Swedish and English.
Jeanne is a passionate guide who will take us into magnificent mountain landscapes. The tours will be of varying length. There will be one day of rest with space for arts, writing, and other relaxing activities. The last evening we will celebrate with a Grand Fiesta. Departure from the hotel on May 6.
We will do gentle yoga in nature, engage in various forms of arts media (no previous experience needed). This will ignite your intuitive powers and help you listen more deeply to your inner voice and calling at this point in life. We will engage in conversations focused on creating meaning and purpose. And also, play and have fun!
We are all different. During this workshop, you can choose to hike with us in the mountains for the entire tour, or walk a part of the route. You can sit under a tree, philosophize, listen to the pulse of life, and hear the song of your heart. Maybe you want to draw, dance, or write... Let this journey become a life-changing next step!
