Sharing our thriving life with you.
We are Markus + Micah. We live in a tiny house by the sea, grow our plants, cook plant-based food, travel, and design wellness retreats and mindful programs so we can all live meaningful lives.
What We Do
We left our standard lives, jobs, and society’s conditioning to create a slow and self-determined life that we love.
Our life is simple, delicious, spacious and focused on the essentials based on our personal values.
We create holistic wellness retreats and programs that honor movement, nature, mindfulness, and meaningful connections.

A self-determined life is available for everyone. Our retreats is only the beginning. You can design your thriving life, too. Every day, remember to:
- Focus on your essentials
- Take care of yourself
- Connect with others
- Make sustainable choices
- Have fun!
Thank you for bringing us peace, for restoring our joy, and for consuming us with so much love.
“I will do it again”
The progress that happened within myself is unforgettable and absolutely invaluable. I would definitely do it again.
This was the perfect retreat for me with a big variety of interesting and empowering activities.
