About Kura Waka

Kura Waka, sacred house of learning [formerly known as Baba Jaga] is located in the North of Holland, in a small village called Roodeschool. Michaela has bought the location, an old school, in 1997 and started to manifest her dream; creating a center for conciousness, personal development and inspiration.

Now for over 20 years Kura Waka brings teachers and students together from all corners of the world. The wisdom of the teachers is transferred through courses, seminars, retreats, meditation, sweat lodges, ceremonies and art forms. Their contribution promotes skill and knowledge about nature, health, communication and sustainability. Awareness, healing and personal growth play an important role.

In 2016 the time called for a next step and the Kura Waka Foundation was established. The goal of the Kura Waka Foundation is to create balance in an energy taking and energy generating world. This balance is created from a loving and caring perspective. We don’t judge, we create conciousness. In this way allowing you to unfold your personal development in your own time. A place to experience, gather, meditate, have ceremony & heal

In order to run your own retreat you can rent Kura Waka.
