Embraced by Each Other, Embraced by Nature

with Antoinette Lorraine & guest teachers


This is our 16th Biodanza International Tribal Gathering! It is a camp that has grown organically and some of the children who began are now teenagers and still attending. Together we create a beautiful harmonious environment filled with love and enveloped by nature. What happens is truly a miracle, everything and everyone is there for this magical transformation to take place and the effects are long lasting! And although tribe members return again and again we welcome new people. Come and join us!

Impression of biodanza tribal gathering Netherlands

‘I would like to thank you for the Biodanza Tribal Gathering in Winterswijk this year. I am very grateful for this experience and for people I have met. It was magical. I could see how with every day I was very gently evolving, opening up to new unexpected feelings and experiences. I could feel very subtle changes happening in my body. I went from being reserved and distant to relaxed and fully present, the way I have never felt before. The pure joy of life – that is how I like to call it. I like to think we have created the right environment for personal growth and development, full of love and care. We were like a true tribe – children, teenagers, younger and older adults, parents, couples, singles, everyone equally important. On one hand, we were one group, spending time together, working, playing, just being. But in the same time, in this unity and in relation to each other, we remained as individuals. There was full acceptance of each other, just the way we are. I like to compare our way of being during this Tribal Gathering to the dance of fluidity – being close and present, but respectful and aware of others’ own space.’


'I really enjoyed the beautiful viviencias, your sparkling personality, the pure nature, energy at the Zonnebloem and the beautiful people in the tribe. You made me laugh, cry, sing, smile, shake, burn, feel ecstatic, free, wondered, and happy as a child. What a freedom and connection.
'To me, our Biodanza Tribal Gathering is to prove to myself that's not just an ideal to live and love this way. To be part of this family is really a support to live openness and stand for it during the year. With the trust we will meet and feed each other again'
‘Integrating family life with Biodanza. It was an amazing time during the Biodanza gathering in Winterswijk. Most attractive to me is that the atmosphere is so full of love and unpretentious. Lots of children of all ages make it complete as they are really embraced by everyone. Combining fatherhood and vivencias was easy when I enjoyed everything in the now, and didn't struggle with expectations.Thank you Antoinette for making it happen, year after year’.
