Unlock Potential presents :


Multi-day RETREAT in the lap of nature

“Unlock Potential” 


We all have more talents and more to offer than we dare to admit. If we realize our potential and have enough courage to count on it, we feel stronger, both at work, and outside of it. We are also happier.

During this week you will learn to recognize and use your talents. Let's not delay any longer. Realize your potential NOW and live your life to its fullest.

Why must this period of reflection and rest be of great interest to you?

  • You take a break from the hustle and bustle of life and focus on what's really important.

  • You break through your habits, have a different perspective on things, and learn to be grateful.

  • You learn how to fully utilize free moments that you get in life.

  • You discover that you too deserve happiness and success.

  • You learn to make choices and also learn to distinguish the superfluous from the essential.

  • I teach you how to better distribute your energy between day tasks, work and leisure.

  • You begin to look at your family and friends as sources of enrichment rather than a burden.

  • You experience more freedom and less pressure from "what should".

  • Your confidence gets a boost and you shine again.

 During the retreat I will introduce you to the true POTENTIAL in you in a playful and relaxing manner.

I will show you how currently you are not using your full potential to get the best out of yourself.

I will present you with practically applicable solutions. Your learning and transformation will happen without hassle, while centering your attention to the natural environment around us.

Wi-Fi is available in public areas. It's free. To optimally use your phone batteries, it is recommended the use of GSM is kept to a minimum.


We all speak our own language. I myself I  am multilingual and I like to adapt to the group. This is to ensure that the interactions remain nice and understandable and there are no language barriers affecting the social aspect of the retreat. My experience shows that this is the best way to connect.

What are we doing ? 

Everyday we work around a theme which brings us a step closer to our "full potential". We make full use of the elements of nature and the environment during our exercises. I always outline in advance the theoretical framework that is repeated throughout the course as a handy reference work. We give the others enough space and time to fully experience the transformation (often in silence) and then share their thoughts afterwards. Interaction is important, but stillness makes us think deep.

How does a day ago during counselling?

Everyday there is a moment of reflection over the proceedings of the program and a bit of relaxation. This happens both in group as well as individual sessions. One day we all go to the beach to greet the sun.

We eat a healthy breakfast followed by training and coaching that complement each other.

After lunch we give ourselves time to absorb things mentally, physically and emotionally and assimilate them. Some enjoy the swimming pool. Some spend time in the garden and explore the surroundings.

In the afternoon we continue to build upon the ground we have prepared so far, with an excursion or an exercise. I will also provide the necessary tools to explore our theme further.

The evening meal consists of some mindful food accompanied by gratitude.

Then I call it a day and facilitate the attendees to ingrain whatever they have learned. Afterwards the participants can go for an evening walk, jot down in the journal or simply relax in the surrounding area.

A healthy dose of relaxation 

We relax, rest and reflect. All the transformations that happen during the week are supposed to come to us on their own, at their own pace. We can't speed that up. It's about the experience, living through things  and absorbing them.

In between you can also explore the area with your own transport.

There are also some cultural activities

If you want, there are lots of interesting cultural sites in the area: museums (Dali), historic villages, monasteries, etc.

And also:


  • Eat together and share the fun moments

  • Laugh and have fun

  • Make time for each other and indulge in personal conversations

  • Have silent moments and get enough space to withdraw yourself

A few reactions from participants :


"Enriching, soothing and surprising. I derived energy, strength and vitality from it. It was an intense and deep connection with myself."


"It is a week I want to experience multiple times. I know that Muriel will ensure that it runs optimally, every time."


"No ordinary training or coaching, but a unique human experience."
