Our Sparkle Team in Italy

A flowing collaboration

Sometimes you meet people who just align in an incredible way with your dreams, visions, desires, passions and qualities, that it’s not more than logical that you start collaborating. Four lives that got together at the right time to collectively and individually do what they love the most. That’s how it went when Mariëlle & Arjen and Heidi & Koen, met. Two couples who had been pioneering for years on their own paths.

Mariëlle & Arjen in the Netherlands and Heidi & Koen in Belgium, until they decided to emigrate to Italy in 2015 because they rediscovered their own soul in the Green Heart of Umbria and they wanted to follow it to wherever it may lead them. Both couples headed into the unknown, left everything behind them that they knew and opened up to the adventure that is called Living from the Heart. Without  any security from the outside, but with a powerful inner compass.

And then they met each other and everything fell into place…

Sparkle Paradise is an initiative by Mariëlle & Arjen. UmbriaSoul is an initiative by Heidi & Koen. Both combine perfectly with each other. Sparkle Paradise is mainly about connecting with yourSelf and your inner paradise, so that this dream can actually land on earth; whereas the focus of UmbriaSoul is mostly on connecting people with each other and creating the space in which pollination can occur, in order to then realize all kinds of projects together. You can tell that this is a Match Made in Heaven!

It’s our intention to create internal and external connections, nationally and internationally, so that the feeling of a global family can grow, which makes you feel supported and to which you can contribute, in your own unique way.
