The training centre provides the infrastructure to deliver and implement open call trainings and programs funded by Erasmus+. Full time volunteers run the training centre and they maintain and prepare the buildings for these occasions.
During the projects and trainings, the organising team and the participants are solely responsible to keep these on going tasks, which results in a self-run approach. This is a fundamental reason for our great offers and pricing.
The Training centre of the foundation Olde Vechte is located in Ommen the Netherlands. It is near the river de Vecht at the edge of the historical town Ommen (17.000 inhabitants).
It is a 500 metres walk to the city centre, with supermarkets, restaurants and a wide range of shops.
Even being in the countryside, it is only 1,5 hours by train to Amsterdam airport and therefore, it is easily reachable for international travellers.
The property has two independent group accommodations. The manor house Olde Vechte has 17 sleeping rooms and the Country House Zeesse 9 sleeping rooms. Both buildings have a full-equipped kitchen, living rooms and cosy areas. There are outside terraces and surrounding playing fields with a great view over the river to the town.
In 2016 a new training room of 150 square metres was built. It has a new sustainable floor heating system where the sessions of the trainings take place and provides also a work place for groups.
The whole estate is around 4 hectares and contains also a small forest, which enables enough space to be on your own in the breaks or reflection moments during the training. It is a great spot to do all kind of outdoor activities, games or personal assignments, working in couples or small reflection groups.
It’s lovely landscape with historical places; the very small village and family farms make the countryside of Ommen. This landscape is inviting to have bicycle rides or a nice walk in the forest around the corner.
"By connecting to and harnessing my intuition, I could get insight into my systems, relationships, feelings and most importantly connection to fantastic people helping me on my journey. It opened up a wide spectrum in the world of systemic approach and systemic constellations. I truly enjoyed the playful note of the 5 days, yet it delivered great content, further information to look after and learn in the upcoming months and years. Exciting, varied means and methods. Brilliant week."
- Kata Foldes, Hungary
"I was open but reserved regarding constellations since it was my first encounter, but it took me by surprise and big time. At some points it wasn't pretty or easy to but truly healthy especially afterwards. Beautiful five days! Valuable milestone to continue live, learn and grow!"
- Artis Armalis, Latvia
"It was a trip to the mysterious world of a new coaching technique, the constellations! Following all the stars of the present, the past and the future, I experience all the different levels of work on this method. Through experiential learning I could practice my skills on this technique and explore sides of myself that were not clear and give myself some answers."
- Olga Karageorgiou, Greece
"I did quite a lot personal development trainings where I work basically with my mind and thinking. Constellations were focus only on intuition and gut feeling. And this was a huge breakthrough for me. I have never had such an interesting and intense learning experience before in such a short time. I could not say I have got a clear answer what exactly to do in every step on my life. But I can truly say I've realised the approach towards my issue I wanted to solve. And now after more than half a year of this training I feel very much ok in my path and slowly but surely building my life the way it feels relaxed, enjoyable and fulfilling."
- Ignas Skudrickas, Lithuania
"Life changing experience personally and professionally. Energy flow and feeling that it was planned to be there for me. Programme was intensive, deep, specific and significant."
- Ieva Garjane, Latvia
"This training was atypical from all points of view; it was something that couldn't have been anticipated by anyone who hadn't done constellations before. The power of the method is beyond what one would usually imagine. It quickly goes very deep and brings out essential elements of the addressed situation. It was the most powerful training I have ever attended. "
- Claudia Ilinca Toderean, Romania
"A beautifully inspiring conversation with my own intuition, and a confronting set of insights about my family and organisation that led me to take some actions and explore further. This training was a great encounter with forces beyond me."
- Miki Ambrozy, Hungary
