“My trip to Sweden in 2019 was life-changing!
As a result I feel more confident, empowered and proud of the person I’ve become. Elena and Joren were incredible to work with and I always felt safe and at peace in their presence. Even though jumping into ice covered lakes was terrifying! The food was delicious and it was one of the best retreats I’ve ever done.
Would highly recommend doing a week-long adventure with Into the wild within! You won’t regret it.”
“Challenging, delightful, life-changing, inspiring, enlivening, soul-nourishing, magical.
I have brought home a renewed sense of connection with my body and with nature. I retain a sense that I am enough, have freedom from self-doubt and self-recrimination. The feeling of connection with the tribe is still strong.”
COLD NATURE IMMERSION
Daily exposure to the elements through cold water immersion in the lake.
Deeply experiencing the practice of breath & mind.
Awareness expansion through cold nature immersion rituals with sound & fire.
LIVING WITH THE EARTH
As a ritual of spiritual reconnection to our outer ecology – the earth – we practice primitive fire-making through sourcing material from the surrounding forest.
Learning the craft of working the wood with our hands and reconnecting to human invention, learning how to artfully set fire to ambers, breathing life back into them.
POWERFUL BODY & MIND PRACTICES
We use the power of breath, sound, dance and meditation to connect body & mind through energetic practices:
- Breath work practice guided by live music to cleanse and supercharge ourselves
- Sound healing journeys to relax the nervous system and tune the energetic field
- Hatha-, yin- & kundalini yoga to awaken & nourish the body-mind system
- Free flow conscious movement & ecstatic dance to release and connect
- Heart opening meditations, visualisations & yoga nidra
THRIVING WITH NATURE & TRIBE
We work together to create a home in the woods.
We gather materials from our environment, we make fire and we cook our food in the ambers.
We sing, dance and enjoy our wood fire sauna rituals by the lake.

Joren de Bruin
A perception changer, adventurer and musician, Joren is passionate about bringing the power of our innate healing ability into the world. He teaches how fear, pain, anxiety and stress can all become guides to a deepened mind-body connection, wellbeing, self development and personal freedom. After a severe injury, Joren was coached in breathing, cold and mind power methods by Wim Hof, before he rose to fame. He subsequently spent four years supporting Hof in his early work and trained under him. Currently, being 8 years into his journey of self-discovery, Joren has been fortunate to inspire thousands of people to cultivate an awareness towards a thriving and self empowered way of living through his talks, workshops and expeditions in nature.
