We live and practice the 7 principles of Huna (be aware, be free, be focused, be here, be happy, be confident, be positive).

We offer you bodywork (Ka Huna massage, Heartworks Lomi Lomi, reflexology, reiki and biofeedback), in-depth conversations, nature walks,  yoga or dance. and just being in nature in peaceful surroundings with lots of wildlife.

Maarten & Josephine

Josephine is a dedicated, focused and passionate teacher, spiritually open, loving, deeply connected with nature and full of fun. She is able to tune into your personal needs and guide you on your spiritual journey. She will give you a sense of security and self-confidence in a loving and caring way.

Josephine facilitates Ka Huna Massage Training Courses, Spirit of Woman Retreats and the Well-being Weekends at High Spirits Retreat / Mette’s Institute for Bodywork and Personal Development Queensland Australia. Mette’s Institute of Bodywork and Personal Development was established in November, 1994, by Mette and Jorgen Sorensen. It has since grown to be both nationally and internationally recognised for its bodywork and personal development training courses, as well as spa and massage equipment designed by the Institute.

In combining Ka Huna philosophy with Mette’s teaching, the couple now assists hundreds of people in making their dreams come true. Josephine is one of the facilitators. Have a look at the ‘Faces of High Spirits’ video clip of Josephine.


Maarten is (apart of being a retired Dutch Army Officer and a freelance Marketing Consultant) a Stress Management and Stress Reduction Biofeedback Therapist, Spiritual Counsellor and a Ka Huna Bodyworker. He is passionate about Quantum Physics, Natural Healing, Bodywork and Personal and Spiritual growth.

Maarten will guide you to a deeper understanding of the energy work in Heartworks Lomi Lomi and a deeper understanding of who you are, because you are far more than you ever dream or could imagine you are.

We have both undertaken an intensive training schedule to develop not only our technical skills, but a deep understanding of the Huna philosophy to expand and develop our own awareness on all levels. We also developed the necessary counselling skills to connect with our clients and help them move forward to a state of balance harmony and peace with life. We are fellow travellers who can support you in your journey. The process ensures that we have experienced an enormous amount of personal healing through meditations and bodywork. We both have experienced major life changes to reach the point of being able to help others and maintain their own healing through the applications of this knowledge. Because we have personally experienced the process, we are able to relate with compassion and understanding to our clients.

We provide a safe, supportive and welcoming environment for you to grow and flow.
