Guided solo retreats for women
Workshops for small groups
Maskan Aat is available for dreamers, seekers, artists… wishing to retreat into nature and into themselves, and to work on something. The dwelling place is located in the south of the Netherlands in the Limburg region, on a hectare in a little enchanted forest, with cats and dogs and chickens, gardens and herbs, and many kinds of birds. My husband and I tend and share the land with Maskan; our home is across a little bridge. Both of us writers, we value privacy and quiet. A swimming pool is on the property and by the fall of 2023 there will also be a sauna. Walking/cycling paths just across the street into a nature reserve.
Guided session take place in the yurt and in the forest/garden.

Testimonial“Lana doesn’t just teach you about dreams and the dream world, she embodies that world herself. When you are in her magical place in the Limburg woods, it is like going through a door and ending up in a new reality. An enchanting world, in which you learn to see your dreams as messages from your soul, which always want to help you grow.” (Saskia S. – Poet)

An experience:“What the dream wekend brought me was beyond expectations. The deeper layers in my dreams became more and more visible and gave more and more insight into what my soul wants to tell me. Very special to start working with the dreams in different ways and with a lot of respect. Lana is a beautiful and expressive woman who inspires and pampers her guests. The weekend was about dreams, but it also felt like a dream. A fairytale environment, a special energy and beautiful people. I would like to come back again.” (Janneke H., Coach)
