renewal, blossoming


Spring 2022:
08 April – 22 April in Greece, Epidavros
20 May – 10 June in Italy, Le Marche

Whether you are a scientist, artist, entrepreneur, or other professional, one of the most valuable and powerful things you can do for yourself and your company is to take a sabbatical. We need time away to reflect, dream, focus, write, get sparkling ideas, and take new steps.

Innovative ideas usually don’t come when setting at your desk. In order to renew and unleash an innovative power in your life , it can be very helpful to take time off from your daily life.
Not only in times of pressure or crisis, but also when everything is running smoothly a sabbatical leave will help you tapping into your own potential and creativity.

Artisa’s approach

ARTISA’s inspiring environment helps to get the best out of you. By our tailor-made professional and practical care, by interesting dialogues and support when needed. Also by the beauty of the place, the energy, inspiration and silence that is present.
Especially at the beginning or end of a sabbatical leave it can be very useful to stay with us. To make the transition from your daily routine to a new road untraveled of a sabbatical as well as making a smooth and meaningful transition back to working life after the sabbatical leave.

The program starts with a written and personal intake. Learning objectives and needs are distilled  and a tailor made program will be made. We use an integrated approach, in which physical, mental, expressive and emotional angles are chosen. Reflection and meditation will also be used. You will receive at least 3 personal coaching sessions and guidance throughout the week.

“The coaching sessions have helped me to get out of my head into the heart, to be more open and to feel what I really need. What I liked was that Celeste doesn’t work with preplanned models and theory  but connects to what I needed at that time. I felt at home, I could be myself and I’m touched by her commitment and genuine interest, heart to heart. ” Ottoline K. general remedial educationalist

‘De omgeving en de coachingsgesprekken hebben me geinspireerd. Tijdens het verblijf heb ik verschillende lange wandeltochten gemaakt, die een positieve invloed op me hadden. Toen ik bij Artisa aankwam zat niet lekker in m’n vel. Door het verblijf in de natuur, de verzorging, de intensieve coaching en de rust heb ik de sabbatical als erg prettig ervaren. Daarnaast heb ik verschillende dingen uit het verleden een plek kunnen geven, en heb een aantal handvatten aangereikt gekregen waardoor ik me een stuk sterker en beter voel. Erg goed. ‘ A. K., psychologie student

‘ Supermooie plek, heerlijk eten, stilte en rust, helemaal onbezorgd tot jezelf komen, inspirerende en liefdevolle coaching. Fijn! ‘ F. Advocaat

‘I just had a wonderfull time at Artisa where I talked about inspiring themes, walked the wonderfull mountains and sat by the sea while words for new stories poured in with every wave. One night I even saw bioluminescent plankton winking at me. Now I am home again, it feels if I have a brand new clean brain, bubbling with ideas. Thank you.’ A. Holshuijsen
