WE CANNOT WAIT TO MEET YOU

After you have booked your ticket, you can book your accommodation directly at the seminar house Shanti. You can choose between the options single room, double room, 4-bed room and camping/tent. All information can be found in the FAQs below and in the email you will receive after booking your ticket.
What is the different categories?
We are looking forward to seeing you! We are happy if you directly listen to your inner YES and decide to be there. There is no difference between the tickets of the different categories, except the time when you say YES.
We would like to support the fact that our planning reliability increases with every early decision. This is where the different categories come from.
Each ticket includes the participation in the whole experience of several weeks: the 2 Circles, the Gathering with the 4 ceremonies and the group. You will get all the important preliminary information and the preparation tasks we offer.
In case you buy your ticket after the last Circle before the Gathering you will get access to the recordings and can therefore get in deep. We work with intention and energy – you will feel it.
Is there a discount?
We look forward to welcoming as many women as possible. That’s why we have chosen the Yoga Vidya, which is not only located near the Externsteine, but also offers different accommodation options.
At the moment we are still looking forward to welcoming women to complement our GrandDaughter Collective on site. We take care of your overnight stay in a 4-bed room, you get dinner and breakfast and you are fully involved with a look behind the scenes. If you are interested, send us a message to email@example.com.
Regarding child discounts, please see below – the question will be answered there.
Are there any specific requirements for the participation?
We invite women from all generations – because each of us is a granddaughter and each of us is an ancestress. Whether you are 16 or 66, just at the beginning of your spiritual path or close to enlightenment – we look forward to meeting you. Because this is not about knowledge, but about wisdom. In short: there are no requirements except your YES!
If you feel the impulse and feel, as we do, that it is time for women and the feminine energy to regain more power in this world – then we welcome you.
And if you are just curious – then so be it!
We invite you to bring your mother or daughter, aunt or niece with you. Together we can weave the web anew over the generations.
For us and all those who come after us.
If you hear a loud YES! now – let’s go!
If you hear a soft whisper, feel this gentle impulse or notice how this old wish awakens in you again – trust yourself. We are looking forward to getting to know you.
Where exactly does the Gathering take place?
We meet in the seminar house Shanti in Horn Bad Meinberg. The seminar house is located in the immediate area of the Externsteine and the energy of the Teutoburg Forest that surrounds us can be felt everywhere.
The Silvaticum Provincial Forest Park also borders directly on the grounds of the seminar house, in the flowing transition between the Lippe forests and the well-kept health resort park in Bad Meinberg. Since the 1960s, forest and meadow landscapes from 14 regions of our earth have been cultivated here.
With its exceptional tree population and unique landscape concept, the Silvaticum radiates special power and tranquillity. It is ideal for long walks and intensive nature experiences.
On Saturday we spend a good part of the day directly at the Externsteine.

Is the Gathering barrier-free?
Some single and double rooms in the seminar house are wheelchair accessible and equipped. The seminar rooms, dining rooms, lounge and foyer are freely accessible to wheelchair users.
There is a car park at the Externsteine and the path to the stones is also barrier-free. It is a partly unpaved hiking trail. Some of the stations at the Externsteine on Saturday mornings are not barrier-free, as they are located in the forest and can be reached via stairs and/or hiking trails. According to the current planning we will have a station at the foot of the stones all the time, which should be accessible. And the energy can be felt everywhere.
The ceremonies are all at ground level, if the weather is fine they will take place outside.

The seminar house Shanti is located in Horn-Bad Meinberg between Bielefeld, Paderborn and Detmold and in the immediate vicinity of the Externsteine.
This region – also known as the mystical triangle of central Europa – is filled with ancient wisdom and remnants of pre-Christian traditions and spirituality.
The Teutoburg Forest still has mystical groves and Bielefeld is home to a black Madonna. So, next to the Externsteine, there is much else to discover. All this is woven by the web about this mystical region.
