Earth Awareness

Holistisch Inspiratie Centrum 

Earth Awareness is one of the oldest and biggest off grid centre of the Netherlands, a visit is a guarantee for an unforgetable experience.

A fertile testing ground where we can observe how human beings can live symbiotacally with nature. With a flow of creativity, the ritmes of the seasons, Earth Awareness has grown out to be a cultural breeding ground and nursery for a natural lifestyle. 


The centre is located in a extraordinary green little village and is an exceptional bird paradise. Thanks to the kolossal trees and great biodiversity its an incredibly lovely place to stay.

Claybank stoves, an outside kitchen, art, eco toilets, great gardens with a greenhouse and an amazing look out platform are some of the beautiful, high quality assesories and facilities you will find and enjoy at the centre.




Nature Temple - The manifestation of the inspiration


Since 2012 Earth Awareness is creating a natural artwork, inspired on hobbit houses, cob wood building, log houses and other alternative building methods. A beautiful organic roundhouse made from big logs, curly branches, clay and glass. A majestic floor, a geodesic dome on the green roof with a fire burning in the centre.


The Nature Temple is built from pure inspiration, which contributes to the events that take place. The experience space is incredibly well set up for educational purposes, round meetings, lectures, celebrations, courses and trainings and so on.


In the near future this unique place can be used for your events too! If you are interested, we can already start investigating the possibilities, just send us a message with information.



Mystery School - An initiation centre for the people, for reflection on and reconnection with our origin and the greater whole. This unique experience space is designed for ceremonial use, it functions as a compass and initiation centre for truth-seekers. The enchantment of the Temple will take you straight to the realms of imagination. A visit will guarantee an unforgettable experience full of inspiration.


Spirit of Community - In the years that have passed more than 200 volunteers helped with the building proces. They offered their sweat, knowledge or finances to manifest this communual dream. 

With the building of the Nature Temple, we are realizing a ‘clubhouse’ for green initiatives and out of the box solutions, a place where we can meet, co create and relax together. Somewhere in time we all come to the realization that we are the ones we’ve been waiting for……… 



About Us - Mark & Maya


We are pioneers in off the grid living and are always surfing the uncharted waters. We are the beating heart of Earth Awareness and therefor know how to inspire others. 

Unlimited imagination power in combination with practical skills has enabled us to authentically create a new reality. Because of our colaberation with many indigenous wisdomkeepers for many years we were lucky to go beyond and develop different views, which we express in art and events.



Ceremonies


In essence a ceremony is about bringing sacredness into your life and about honoring something greater than you and I. There is a divine force that moves through all things. As we become more aware of this higher force moving in our lives and express our gratitude for it, it expands and colors daily life with a radiance and light that connects us to all living things.


A group ceremony in the Nature Temple is very special, as brothers and sisters from all over Europe, are gathering around the fire to seek vision, show humbleness, share gratefulness, ask healing and celebrate life. When we come together with a clear intention for health, magical things are happening. 


Our ceremonies are influenced by many shamanistic traditions, they are dynamic and alive. Together we practice how to become the masters of our shapeshifting realities. With beautiful acoustic music, sensitive and powerful songs, silence and sincere sharing around the fireplace. A team of caring and experienced assistants will be there to help you surrender to your inner journey. We organize the all kind of sacred ceremonies as a tool for awakening and conection.
