About us

Stefanie Liedtke

I am Stefanie Liedtke. I was born in Germany and have lived in the Netherlands for almost 30 years. I studied music in Germany and Holland. I regularly perform with chamber music ensembles playing different styles of music.

In my work, but also in my daily life, I try to constantly renew myself and learn new things.

I am an enthusiastic disciple of Aikido, a Japanese martial art, and have acquired the second Dan degree (2nd black belt degree.) In Aikido we work with Ki (energy). Training well means connecting your own energy with the energy of your partner and with cosmic energy.

I love to be in contact with people. Good contact helps me in my work as a performing musician but also in my work as a teacher. I give music lessons to groups of children in primary schools and individual instrumental lessons in my own studio.

Through Arthur I have gotten to know the Czech Republic and its residents and I grew to love the country and its inhabitants.

Our farm in Trst?nice offers fantastic possibilities to bring people of different backgrounds together. Here I want to create an atmosphere of trust, making people feel at home and giving them the space to engage each other.

Arthur Gläsner

 I am Arthur Gläsner. I was born and raised in Karlsbad, Czech Republic. When I was 14 years old, I moved to Germany together with my parents and my younger sister. I lived there for 10 years and finished my secondary school and my education as a stonemason and at the Academy of Arts.
As a craftsman/artist, I travelled for 2 years around Europe and made art and craftworks made of stone in many countries.

When I was 24, I moved together with my wife Stefanie to the Netherlands. I then studied for one year at the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Since then, I have been working as an artist and a self-employed sculptor.

I started studying at the Institution for Psychosynthesis in Holland in 2009 and received my bachelor there in 2014.

I am now part of an international Community Building group, in training to become a Community Building facilitator. (Community Building after Scott Peck.).
At the same time, I am busy setting up a community with people who want to look for new ways of living and working together, seeking inspiration at our farm. People who want to integrate creative growth on both individual and collective levels.
