About Us

We are a collective of friends who love working together. We met in 2018 at the Ecovillage Design Education in Schloss Glarisegg (CH), felt mutually inspired, and decided to start creating courses together in 2019. Early this year we named our collective “Pathways” and created this website. Welcome!

We have backgrounds in Permaculture Design, Authentic Vocation, Sociocracy, Ecovillage Design, Facilitation, Conflict Resolution, Yoga, Deep Ecology, Dragon Dreaming, Collaboration methods and more…


Roos Derks

Co-Founder, Permaculture  Gardener and teacher, Event Organiser

Roos, born in the Netherlands and currently living in Germany. She loves teaching permaculture and lives off the vegetables and fruits from her own gardening since 4 years. Next to that she teaches at the yearly Ecovillage Design Education, and she organizes events, such as the Dragon Seed Camp. Her heart beats for a new story: that of a positive human impact on an alive earth. Her work is to create the conditions which allow that change to happen: culturally, socially, economically.

Co-Founder, Nomadic Event Organiser

Annabelle, born in Germany, is passionate about creating spaces for transformation and exploration.

With an alive interest in human connection and communication, Annabelle co-organises various events that bring people closer to each other and themselves.
Next to these Youth Exchanges, she pours her love and energy into making the Dragon Seed Camp (a magical skill sharing gathering), Conflict Transformation Trainings, and the Ecovillage Design Education course happen. This means that her life consists of flowing from one event or preparation meeting to the next.

Annabelle is a certified Yoga teacher, creative vegan cook and a cold water enthusiast. She loves forest runs, spontaneous dancing and AcroYoga sessions.

Her vision is that empowering individuals to manifest their dreams brings about social transformation.
