The Awakened Living Project 3.0

Coming Soon 

July 12th - September 15th 2019


A Space To Unwind & Experience Divine Relaxation

New Eden is a sanctuary for self-healing for those wishing to upgrade their inner world, by being in connection with others who are committed to a life of joy, freedom and health.

How Does It Work?

Think of it as a mixture of retreat, conscious vacation and the best office in the world to work... whilst being around awesome people who get you, feel you and see you. We intentionally curate an experience here of embodying an 'upgraded way of living' that will leave you re-charged, renewed, upgraded and inspired.

It's a retreat + a training ground for life. 

The Awakened Living Project offers an environment that allows you to upgrade whatever it is you're ready to upgrade in your life, as well as having a training ground to actually practice and embody that. This isn't about going to a structured event or training, it's about entering an environment and culture where you can thrive. 

Choose How Long To Stay.

Experience a weekend, a week or even longer here at New Eden based on what it is that you're looking for. This is about curating the experience personal to you and what you want. 

Who Is This For?

The Awakened Living Project is designed for those who are on a mission in this life. It's a place for creative, heart-centered leaders that want to grow through community, tap deeper into their creativity and have a place where they can be held in their own process of awakening.

What's Offered at New Eden?

We create an ultimate environment for creativity and personal transformation, here's a little about what's offered.

Morning Practice

We have a culture of daily morning practice to connect with your breath, body, life-force and your intention for the day. 

Regular Classes

From purpose, creative expression and business development all the way through to yoga and ecstatic dance, each week offers a number of different classes. 



There is a beautiful community space to work together daily, offering a high energy environment for creativity to flow. 

Ecstatic Dance Nights

By day, our practice room is our temple for transformation, at night it becomes a dance Mecca with ambient lighting and 10,000 watt sound system.

High Speed WiFi

We operate here at 500 mb/s. You can upload, download, livestream and work with a better speed than you'll get in the city. 

Specialized Offerings

You can sign up for things like business consulting, personal brand development, private body work or facilitator training. 

Jacuzzi & Pool

Open day and night, we have a heated pool and jacuzzi (open from May to November) to connect, relax and unwind each day. 

Forest & Nature

Home to serene forest and surroundings. Go for a daily walk in the 40 acres of forest that surrounds the property to connect with yourself and the land. 

About New Eden

New Eden, a property located in the Heart of Friesland, Netherlands, is surrounded by 50 acres of beautiful forest and nature.  It is completely private and is gloriously free from the noise and distractions of modern life.
At New Eden you can spend quality time with yourself or your partner, collaborate with others, make new friends, recover from burnout or exhaustion and take a selection of  classes or workshops to upgrade your communication, leadership and intimacy skills.
By being together with other highly conscious and heart intelligent individuals, a powerful amplified field is created where you'll experience deep connections, incredible adventures and unique opportunities to multiply your impact and give back to humanity, so that you can play an even bigger game and significantly expand your ability to accomplish bold things.
Staying at New Eden is like stepping into a different reality of wonder and magic. We go to great lengths to create a strong and loving container for you to stretch into the best version of yourself while creating a culture of acceptance, authenticity, depth of practice, mastery and heart-centered living.

We do our best to serve organic produce, yet it's not guaranteed that all ingredients will be certified organic.

The Awakened Living Project is an adult experience, however children are welcome to be here. We do not have the staff or facilities to cater for your young ones and so they are 100% your responsibility. Children are not permitted in classes, practice sessions or circles, and must be supervised at all times.

No. We offer an environment to experience awakened living in community with others.

As such, you will be invited to contribute and give your time freely to help out around the centre. 

The experience is one of mutual giving and receiving. We will take care of you, and it's expected that you will help take care of us. Treat this as you would your own home, rather than a hotel where the expectation is to be served.
