Inspiring day trip on Ibiza

Al maanden, misschien zelfs jaren zag ik Irene’s zonovergoten foto’s op social media voorbijkomen. Telkens bleef ik hangen, wegdromende, terwijl mijn werkdeadlines verdampten. Zal ik dan toch een keer mee met Soul Island Ibiza? Toen mijn kat overleden was, hakte ik de knoop door. Nu of nooit. Doodeng vond ik het wel.

‘Stoer’, noemden mijn vrienden me. Voer voor mijn zenuwen, want als ik íets niet ben. En ja, stel dat de chemie met Irene nul is, dan zijn vier dagen een wel heel lange rit. Alle zorgen verdwenen als sneeuw voor de Spaanse zon toen ze bij het vliegveld naar me zwaaide en ik in haar trouwe bakkie stapte. Binnen een paar minuten werd duidelijk dat zij een van de meest bijzondere mensen is die ik ooit ontmoet heb.

Lief, ontspannen en warm. Een lichtje, zoals je er maar een paar in je leven tegenkomt. Die eerste minuten bleken de opmaat voor vier onvergetelijke dagen, zoals meerdere mensen terecht schrijven: een cadeau aan jezelf.

De coaching, lol en persoonlijke gesprekken liepen als een golfbeweging in elkaar over. Net als het ademwerk en de yoga. Irene werkt heel intuïtief, ze voelt ter plekke aan waar je behoefte aan hebt. Een gave die maar weinig mensen hebben, denk ik. Haar betoverende casa, bovenop de berg met een ongekend 360-graden uitzicht, omarmde me. Net als haar goede zorgen, kookkunst en opgewekte gemoed.

Eenmaal thuis heb ik nog weken in de Ibiza-modus gezeten, wat me afwisselend een lach (warme herinnering) en een traan (van heimwee) bracht. Maar met mijn aantekeningenboekje, vol met opgekrabbelde inzichten en plannen, gaat de roadtrip thuis gewoon door.

Op weg naar de toekomst. En zeker weten weer naar Ibiza!

Kimberley went on a journey with 'Soul Island Ibiza' to let go of her old life and start a new one. When we started our road trip, she was ready for a change. She was gung-ho to get a revolution going. This created a dynamic exchange between us.

Our road trip was inspiring, beautiful and great fun. The transformation that I witnessed during those four days was impressive. Kimberley reclaimed her inner wisdom and intuition. What a privilege it was to be her guide. What a lot of courage, vulnerability and spirit my youngest guest showed.

I can proudly tell you that Kimberley is building the life of her dreams today. It’s a tremendous joy to see her shine on the new adventurous path she has chosen to go.

Anne initially came to me for a one day coaching, but found it so fulfilling and rewarding that she signed up for an extra three days. In her review the psychologist and writer explains why. “This way of coaching is far more effective than weeks of talking.”

When Ingrid came to Ibiza she truly got a unique experience.

Ibiza and the mainland suffered the worst December in 35 years. Water gushing down once dry river beds. A valley of almond trees up to their knees in water. Ancient towers and walls collapsing.

Luckily it was Ingrid as my Soul Island companion, because she embraced the situation completely. Despite the almighty downpour we had an amazing four days together. Everyday we were chasing the sun.

She was my youngest client so far and I will never forget Danielle, a sparkling young woman from Australia, who left her beloved country to live a life without regrets.

Besides exploring and enjoying the island she booked a trip with Soul Island Ibiza because she wanted to get clarity on what her best life would look like. She didn’t had a clue. Yet! We had a wonderful time together, but most important is that Danielle left Ibiza with a plan that made her soul shine.

When lovely and creative Vera was on a holiday in Ibiza, we went walking every day. She enjoyed it so much, that she started to call it the 'Irene Experience'.  If you want to know why, read her post.

I’m so happy with the wonderful review Bas wrote about the four-day roadtrip we’ve made late September. Why am I so happy? Because he dares to be open. Bas tells profoundly and openly what the trip gave to him. 

Bas, thanks for our special journey together and for your comments. I’m grateful and happy that Ibiza and I could make you fly.

Early October SOUL ISLAND IBIZA went on a four-day trip with Veronique from the Netherlands. She wanted to be challenged, to feel her strength again and to realize her dreams. To stop negative thoughts, to be fulfilled in everything she does and in stead of doubting, just to go for it.  

To be powerful, energetic and decisive in doing what she was born for she needed to stop being involved in the stories of others. 

Veronique is a radiant woman and a dedicated world traveler. We had a beautiful soultrip together and now an exciting future awaits her. Wow!

At the age of 63 I was at a turning point in life. Within a month I would be a pensioner, I would stop the work of my heart. My new future frightened me. For the first time in my life there was no one to take care of, except me. My children were dispersed and happy, my husband had recently died.

And now what to do? How will I - after 38 years of fulltime work and taking care of others - give meaning to my life again? That question puzzled me when I came to the island.

With Irene I had the best time on Ibiza I could possibly imagine. She showed me secret walks along cliffs, climbing rocks, sneaking through forest and wild rosemary.  >> Click on the photo to read more...

'During my time in Ibiza I went on several day trips with Irene and it felt great to explore the island with her. Thanks to Irene's influence and imagination I experienced a magical week in Ibiza. Her passion for the island captured me straight away. Irene's selection of music to accompany our drives was perfect. She took me to the most secret and enchanting places in Ibiza. There we had many in-depth discussions, we swam and walked, took in the beauty of the island and apart from all this we laughed our heads off. 

Flow!

Thanks Irene for who you are and how you live your dreams. Very inspiring!'
