International guesthouse,
course center, Yoga Teacher Training location, workplace and residence

Centre Lothlorien is an international guesthouse, course center, Yoga Teacher Training location, work and residence, and is located in the middle of the Haute Marne. Centre Lothlorien is a Dutch initiative. A place with an abundance of beautiful nature, space, time and silence. A place where you can follow courses, can rest, get acquainted with other ideas and be active outdoors. A place where new encounters are natural.

Our vision


Lothlorien has a basis of living in balance with nature and respect for everything that lives. Health of mind and body are important points of interest, so the center is ecological, as self-sufficient as possible and the cuisine is vegetarian. We aim for a more people-oriented society.

Lothlorien is the name of the elf forest from Tolkien’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’. It means ‘flower of the golden forest’: a place of peace and harmony where travelers are welcome for relaxation and good advice.

Lothlorien encourages people to find their way and go. The center is an inspiring place where people meet and exchange their ideas and personalities. We offer many courses in personal and / or creative development.



Centre Lothlorien was started at the initiative of Lucas Slager. In 2002, after working for almost 30 years in business, he decided to put his life vision in daily practice even more  and to realize his dream and life mission.

You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one I hope some day you’ll join us, and the world will live as one (John Lennon)

Lucas Slager is also a writer of various books about coaching, self-development and Mayan’s. Outside the high season he is happy to arrange a lecture in the Netherlands or Belgium. Please contact. See also: .

Centre Lothlorien is an initiative supported by The Lothlorien Friends Association.
