The entire retreat is a profound seven day ceremony into your essence in which we start with a morning ritual, we take our quality time diving deep into nature on our own while we are guided from seeing the magical presence all around us to being this magical presence. There will be time to practice mindful photography and techniques to be able to capture the Spirit with your camera or as a witness through observation. After each day of deep dive there is time for integration, after which we step into the Earthkeepers synergic sharing session. During our morning or afternoon ritual we may choose to refresh our mind, body and soul by taking  dip in the sea, visiting the most beautiful spots of the island. The entire retreat will be based upon the platform created for your profound Direct (soul) experience, developing your inner guidance and inner leader, integration, contemplation, and synergic sharing sessions into co-creation with nature that can involve practical techniques using your body as a vehicle, like authentic movement, eye gazing meditation, chi gong or anything that unfolds in the moment and that can help you

“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.”

The Artist




Creative visionary artist/ guide & Advisor - Earthkeepers coach + Filmmaker/ Photographer

MY LIFE MISSION is to guide you into seeing the world from your unique perspective, providing the platform to get in touch with and attuned to Nature (Spirit or Essence of all things) 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.

*Spirit for me is 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.


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.

As a founding chief of the Earthkeepers tribe I bring together kindred spirits from around the world with a common vision and mission, to embody the unconditional love for all living creation as a collective group of caretakers of our beloved planet.

Maurice has been working around the globe as a nature & culture conservation artist photographer & filmmaker for over decade, spreading his love for nature and her beauty he brings a wealth of experience to people 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 our essence. 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, group experiments, filmmaking and mindful photography for groups of professionals, leaders and students. Throughout my life I have been coaching and advising creative people and projects from all walks of life. The essence of this experience I brought together into the ever-growing Earthkeepers gatherings and Vision Exploration retreats 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.
