The Dream

We, Joos Holster and Leo van Vugt, created Centrum Athanor as a realisation of a dream we shared. Captivated by the similarities between countless philosophical and mystical traditions, a yearning grew within us, a burning desire literally, to give the universal principles of those traditions shape, to bring them to life.
Free of dogma,
and with a deep respect for insights and skills developed and retained in old traditions and philosophical insights
– half-forgotten in our current society.
Our goal was, and still is, to create a place that makes the magnificence and the beauty of the life that is always present in each and every one of us tangible.
A place that invites and entices you to make new connections that enrich and deepen your life, starting from your own experience. To literally offer space to do so.
