Ohrdruf, Thüringen

Do you feel like listening to your own inner voice in the silence of the forest, finding more and more of your essence in nature and with professional guidance, while being pampered by me (vegan author Jumana Mattukat) with plant-based food?

Then come to your personal time out: – as a woman accompanied by me (Jumana Mattukat) – as a man accompanied by my partner (Matthias Jackel) – as a couple accompanied by both of us (same-sex couples are also welcome)

Personal time out in the forest

We invite you to embark on a three-day journey (2 nights) to yourself.
With our experience as coach, counselor and seminar leader we guide you through the process and accompany you with empathy, clarity and appreciation to your insights, gifts and visions. Together we will uncover the treasures that are waiting for you inside and strengthen your intuition, which will remain your compass in everyday life after this journey.
When you come as a couple, the focus is not only on introspection but also on the connection between you.
In the couple retreat we share our insights from our “Permaliebe-Practice” with you.


During your three-day retreat you will be accommodated in a clearing in the forest in simple lodging that warms you with wood and supports you in your personal journey to essence without distractions from the essentials.
There is running water from our own spring (approved by the health department as drinking water), which will surely taste delicious to you.

Together with my partner Matthias Jackel I experience how we develop more and more mindfulness for the resources of nature by living in the forest.
If you can imagine using the possible lack of electricity or the possible skipping of a shower as an opportunity to reflect on habits rather than as an annoyance, then you are ready for the adventure “Steigerhaus”.


You have the choice:
I will gladly prepare your vegan meal from purely organic ingredients.
If you like, we will cook together and you will get a deeper insight into my experience as a vegan author.
Depending on the season, the meal at the “Steigerhaus” includes fresh wild herbs from our meadow, fruits of the forest and vegetables from our patch.

Details like possible dates, information about the schedule or things you should bring will be sent to you after your request or registration.

At the moment the Steigerhaus is only open for retreats and community weeks; please no requests for individual overnight stays.
