“The Vision Exploration week with Maurice is more than a ticket to Menorca. It is a ticket to a magical world.
The combination of meditation, body work and Mindful Photography transformed every moment of the day into an exercise in attention, in which everything could just totally be itself: the hushed mystery of a prehistoric monument, the ferocious strength of a rugged coastline, the mindblowing beauty of a rock formation. In everything I saw something of myself. The creative passion of Maurice and the purity of the island reinforce each other in a special way. I have found my joy in (nature) photography. “

Lisette van de Wel – anthropologist and religion scientist

“I had a beautiful mindful Creative Vision exploration week in Menorca. Now, two weeks back home, I noticed that everything has gained momentum in my life.
You get closer to nature and therefore closer to your own nature.
I can certainly recommend it to anybody to do this!”

Jan de Kock – Holistico

Throughout my travels and nature explorations, I discovered that it takes about two years for a community to fully live in tune with each other. And in a city it can take up to a lifetime. But when we are all attuned to the Spirit of the Earth through Nature, it takes just a moment!Maurice Spees

“Together we take on a creative revolution!
Rebirthing our society from a consumer marketplace into a healthy playground for thriving Earth conscious creators co-inspired by Nature.”
Maurice Spees- EARTHKEEPER

Visionary Mindful Photography artist / teacher | Creative Life Coach & Vision Exploration Guide

MY LIFE MISSION is to guide you into seeing the world from your unique perspective, providing you the platform to get in touch with and attuned to Nature (the Nature of Spirit) to open up your heart and develop a pure relation with Spirit*. So that your true nature can unravel as a pure gift to the world. By facilitating platforms of direct individual and group experience in Nature. Using a combination of vision quests, creative visioning, exploration, movement, meditation, chi, photography and performance art as a powerful vehicle to develop a pure relation with Spirit that can bring out the best in you.

*With Spirit I mean the Sacred Spirit of the Earth that gives us access to the infinite source of potential and helps us step out of Karma and into Dharma. With my work I merge my Buddhist perspective with my relation to my beloved Spirit (Shamanism) without any labels attached, please.


Maurice Spees (1975) is an award winning wildlife, nature & culture conservationist photographer/ filmmaker.

“My employer is the Earth. I work in co-creation with Nature and in full attunement with the Spirit of Mother Nature. With a mindful and intuitive approach to my work I offer my work as a gift back to the Earth. All I ask in return is your support to make it possible to continue giving these gifts to people, to cultivate inspiration for others to be their unique gift to the world.

The people I work with are conscious entrepreneurs and artists with the same employer, working and invited to work in pure relation with Spirit.”

Maurice has been working around the globe as a nature & culture conservation artist photographer & filmmaker for over a decade, spreading his love for nature and her beauty across the world. With both film and photography Maurice shares the power of our connection with nature instilling beauty and magic into the hearts of many. His work is an invitation to attune ourselves to Nature where we can develop a pure relation with Spirit to brings out the best in us. With Mindful Photography -from seeing into being, Maurice connects people with the Spirit present all around us, connecting and engaging people with the natural beauty of our ordinary life. Using the art of film and photography as a powerful communication and transformation tool.  Tapping into the potent gift we all carry within, as caretakers of our planet; to purify ourselves, to help maintain beauty, harmony and balance that is naturally present in nature and within our own purity!


Mindful Photography arose as the synergy between my 15 years experiencing as a globetrotting professional artist, photographer and filmmaker, my self-realization experience in Asia and worldwide Nature explorations. Through intense contemplation in eastern philosophies with the help of insight vipassana meditation, I uncovered an innate ability to intuitively communicate with nature, through this I started to fully experience that all of my gifts to life depends on my relationship with Spirit, which is the primal ingredient that guided me to developing everything I teach today. The last decade I develop a joy and a knack for empowering and guiding people into their own gifts and true nature through workshops, inspirational talks and Creative Vision – Exploration Retreats.

From 2007 onwards I facilitated workshops in Intuitive Development, Authentic Movement, Filmmaking and Mindful Photography for professionals, leaders and students. The essence of this experience I brought together into the ever-growing Vision Exploration experiences I facilitate in the Balearic Islands, Nepal and SE-Asia today.”

All I do is express my love for the world through my work.”

Founding chief and member of the EARTHKEEPERS tribe and foundation.
