Hi dear Heart Travelers,
After a beautiful edition of our first HeartFire Camp Out at the beginning of the Summer of 2021, we love to gather again around the HeartFire and celebrate the beginning of the Autumn season with you all!
Ticketsales just started, here! Early Bird until the radiant full moon of aug 29st. Limited spots available!
You are welcome to go camping with us. Join us for this spontaneous camping gathering with Curawaka, Kevin James & Susana, Leonie Bos, Ecstatic Dance with DJ Anthe Aelea & DJ Sefrijn and more magic on the beautiful natural camping ground Landgoed Ottermeer. A magical place that is created with so much love and in harmony with nature. A little paradise that is welcoming us with open hearts and arms. Together we have set a strong intention to make it happen.
We are looking forward to ignite the HeartFire together!

Ottermeer family: Frans & Yvonne, Rachana, Crystal, Jera, Thom and Marnix
HeartFire CampOut is a spontaneous camping experience where you go campout with friends and family in nature. For every edition we invite artists and dj’s that have touched our hearts with their music, sacred sounds and vibrant energy. Music and Dance as Medicine!
Sacred World Music | Ceremony | Ecstatic Dance | Singing | Nature | Stillness Connection | Playfulness | Celebrating Life
In this time of transition it is important to come together in a tribe to connect with eachother and to reconnect with our hearts and to lift our spirits high. Together giving shape to the new earth where love and trust resides. Let’s gather around the HeartFire and celebrate this wonderful life.
We proudly present:
Such a gift that international quintet Curawaka will share their musical medicine with us at the CampOut with a concert and a ceremony. Their music is a doorway to the mystery and connects you with the depth of your soul. Remembering that we are not seperated from eachother and nature but that we are all part of it.
They describe their unique sound as «sacred world music». A respectful yet passionate way of connecting the new with the ancient, the open mind and searching heart with the
spiritual and ritual. The quintet leads us on a journey through the soundscape of the natural world and its native indigenous cultures, invoking a deep memory of something meaningful and profound in most of us.
more info about Curawaka on their website, curawaka.com.
Curawaka have released Call of the Wild and are currently working in the studio with new material for their new album Dreamtime. Support the music directly through their Curawaka Bandcamp Page of listen on Spotify below.
Kevin James & Susana
What a joy that Kevin James & Susana will be again part of the HeartFire CampOut with their HeartSong Chanting Circle. A co-creative and empowering experience that can have you singing your heart out, dancing in bliss and diving deep into the profound silence that follows. Kevin will also share a flute meditation that will take you on an inner journey where you will find peace and deep relaxation. We will open the Chanting Circle with cacao
☆ A powerful way to reconnect to the heart ☆

Kevin James & Susana released their latest album in 2021. The album was succesfully crowdfunded by backers all over the world through Kickstarter.
Singer songwriter, Sound Healer & Inner Voice coach, Leonie Bos. From her essence she knows how to bridge the ancient wisdom with her music to these modern times. She sings and plays from her pure heart. Leonie is working on her 2nd album which is scheduled for release at the end of 2021. This album is a manifestation from 1,5 years of The Morning Kirtan. Every month she organises Full Moon singing Circles and during our weekend Leonie will be doing a Campout Kirtan in the morning and on Sunday her Voice of Freedom workshop. Looking forward!

Leonie Bos recorded and released her latest album ‘Live & Acoustic’ during the lockdown of 2020.
Ecstatic Dance is the perfect way to get out of the mind and into the body. To let yourself be moved and touched by the music. We have selected two Ecstatic Dance DJ’s to play their wonderful music on the dancefloor.
DJ Anthe Aelea
As a DJ the sound of Anthe Aelea is warm, deep, soulful, organic, expansive and refreshing. My sets are inspired by nature and coloured by my love for exotic places, their native cultures, roots and rituals. My music resonates with the moment and provides a musical trip around the world through a dynamic flow of heartwarming world music, electronic infused ethnic beats, folk and tribal grooves, sensual tropical rhythms and mysterious melodies, sometimes even mixing in my own vocals. I love to take a crowd of dancers on a journey beyond time and space.
Sefrijn is a dj, musician and creative entrepreneur. In his work he combines expressive playfulness, meditative sound and modern Mysticism (the belief that there is hidden meaning in life or that each human being can unite with God [Cambridge Dictionary]). Growing up his mother was a music therapist, his father a jazz collector and he himself plays the piano from the age of 6. A combination of technical knowledge, creative improvisation and deep sensitivity create unique experiences.
Find him at uplifting dance meditations, conscious festivals, mantra circles, meditative live music or silent retreats. Welcome all colours of life, welcome all of you! Celebrate and meditate with Sounds & Silence.
We want to create a space where we you are invited to slow down and tune into the nature of your being. Don’t expect a full on program as we feel it is important to also have time to rest, play, connect and see what wants to unfold in the moment itself. The magic of this now moment.

From Dream to Reality. In 2000 Frans and Yvonne bought the Ottermeerhoeve, an old farm with 20 hectares of agricultural land. With the help of Brabants Landschap they have developed and implemented an estate nature plan. Planted 50,000 trees and dug 3 beautiful pools. The mature nature is one of the richest values of our estate.
The camping site is located in the midst of this nature. Their dream was and is to create a nature / paradise environment in which we can develop together in harmony with each other and with nature. It is their life project that they work on with heart and soul daily with their 4 children, supported by friends.
We are looking forward to camp together at Landgoed Ottermeer! There are camping spots with electricity available (no wifi) and plenty of caravan/camper spots (at no extra charge). There are clean, warm showers and a beautiful lake for a fresh morning dip!
