Our mission today, having it’s origin twenty-one years ago, can be shortly described as “facilitating and supporting personal & organizational development and well being”.
The origin of the name Koningsteen (literally ‘King’s stone’) takes us back to the 14th century, when the first stone in Oxdonk was placed on this land. This historical fact offers us a beautiful metaphor: perhaps the foundation for your own personal development can be laid here at Koningsteen as well. The king also represents the heart in the archetypical or Jungian psychology, so it seems like our mission was already incorporated in our name long ago…
For visitors, we aim to offer a calm and beautiful place, surrounded by the nearby fields and woods. An oasis of tranquility where you can just be yourself and choose from a wide range of workshops, events and other inspiring activities and individual treatments.
For organizations, coaches and trainers we offer a unique setting with rooms that each have their own atmosphere and character. Our staff aims to offers the needed facilitation and support to turn workshops, events, seminaries and activities into, we hope, a wonderful experience.
Furthermore, our vision is to offer a healthy natural environment, with a conscious focus on ecological and organic solutions. Wherever possible, our cooks use the organically grown vegetables from our own permaculture garden, and passionately turn them into delicious vegetarian meals for you and/or your organization.
Since the beginning of 2017, the team at Koningsteen has committed itself to a new and unique way of working together. Our new organizational model aims to nurture our equality, empower personal talents, strengthen inter-human connection and allowing self-organization. A model that makes personal development on the workfloor possible. Our organization model is partly inspired by sociocracy and holacracy.
