Pre-overnight stays

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.

Contact with the essence

Enjoy the many birds that sit down in the garden, or if you’re sitting still you might catch a glimpse of our regular buzzard (we call him Harry).

And if you’re really lucky you might see a deer, hare or even a fox.

Therapy and individual guidance

The Land of Now offers various forms of guidance
on a mental and physical level.

Psychosocial counselling from 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 are suitable for you so that you are able to be optimally in balance, or to restore the balance. In case of complaints, advice can be given for additional treatment.

Yoga therapy integrates yoga 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.

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.

Environment

Groninger Landscape

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.
