Stay at our Retreat Center for one of our own retreats (with Juliette en Frank), or stay here for a meaningful meeting or inspired training.
You are a guest in a living house. The Land of Now is a place for ideas to grow, a place of silence for those seeking peace and quiet, an inspiring place for encounters and deepening, and above all, a place that lives. A place that lives, where people live from the essence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And that makes the place unique.
‘You are a guest
in a living house’
Plenty of possibilities
The centrally located circular hall provides access to the various areas and the upper floors. On the ground floor there is an attractive yoga room (approximately 110m2) with a bamboo floor.
Time for a good conversation
Relax and meet
The lounge offers plenty of space to retreat with a book, or to meet others, seated by the wood-burning stove.
The conservatory is a nice intimate space with a view of the pond and can be used for individual conversations or to dream away in the sun.
Feast for the senses
The meals are enjoyed in our atmospheric restaurant where we surprise and amaze you with our menus.
Ethical Food & Drinks
Our food concept the Land of Taste, which we realise together with our enthusiastic team, brings together an inspiring vision of food, taste and ethics.
With the recipes and menus designed by chef Juliette, we amaze you with taste and we ensure not only suitable meals, but also ‘food for the soul’.
We work with fresh and organic quality products. Sustainability and vegetables play the leading role in a refined taste palette, where we inspire you with surprising dishes.
Surprising to you. Great for the world.
Comfortable and sustainable accommodation
Our Retreat Center lodges 19 spacious hotel rooms, including 1 disability-friendly room. All rooms have a private bathroom.
In total, The Land of Now has a capacity of 28 people.
The rooms are furnished with luxurious box springs and offer you a comfortable night’s sleep.
All our box springs, mattresses, duvets and pillows meet the Green Key standard and are produced completely environmentally friendly, CO2 neutral and non-toxic. We would like to offer you a lasting experience on The Land of Now and hope to inspire you.
Arriving and landing
Because many of our guests come from far, it may be nice to arrive an evening earlier.
Depending on the program you are following, and if the occupancy allows it, it is usually possible to book the night before your program starts.
and Yoga inspiration
In our intimate boutique we offer our own design line and forged jewellery. In addition, we have a nice assortment of Yoga, Meditation and Ayurveda products. You can find a.o. our The Land of Now teas, our own RAW chocolate, our hand-screened shirts and tank tops, or exclusive jewellery.
Of course we take sustainable materials into account. We love to inspire you.
Psychosocial counseling from the perspective of humanistic and person-oriented psychology. Talk therapy that offers support when you experience stress, or run into things in your personal life, relationships or work.
nutrition & lifestyle
In an Ayurvedic consultation we look at which diet and lifestyle is suitable for you so that you are able to be in optimal balance, or to restore balance. In case of complaints, advice can be given for additional treatment.
Yoga therapy integrates yogic principles, mindfulness and Ayurvedic knowledge with modern science and psychology. The therapy supports you to experience your optimal balance physically, mentally and emotionally and to reduce any complaints, or how you can deal with them.
Warmte en weldaad
Een intieme sauna middenin het groen, om letterlijk stoom af te blazen na een intense dag, of op te laden tijdens een retraite.
Atelier & Studio
Art & Design
If you go through the gate to the side of the house, you will arrive at the professional artist studio of Juliette & Frank. In the downstairs studio we work with screen printing, goldsmithing and ceramics, among other things. In the upper studio you will find photography, drawing and painting and a design studio.
Visit by appointment.
Far enough from the daily hustle, close to life
For many, a visit to the Land of Now begins with the journey, to get away from the daily activities during the car or train journey with every kilometer travelled. On arrival you land into another world: The Land of Now. A welcome home, just a few hours away from your home.
The Land of Now (Siddeburen) is in close proximity to some beautiful cycling and walking routes. Several routes take you through beautiful places in the municipalities of Slochteren and Menterwolde. For instance along the estate Fraeylemaborg and its forest, or the ‘Schildmeer’ lake. The ‘Schildmeer’ lake is close by and is popular in summer for a dip in the water, in winter for a crackling skating trip.
Of course Groningen city, with its cosy cafes and the Groninger Museum, can be easily reached.
