Sailing is the ultimate freedom

It allows you to travel wherever you want, using only the wind.
Spending time on a sailboat broadens your perspective,
connects you to your wild selve
and attunes you to the rhythm of mother nature.
It also challenges your biggest fears,
requires empathy and cooperation
and teaches you discipline, presence and self-reliance.

to us, it is the perfect place to step out of the comfort zone of everyday life
and explore new horizons. or how we call it: to sea beyond

our dream

DSC_0710.jpg


AHOI, we are RAISSA and CHRIstOF, a young couple with a big dream

to BUILD a radical LEARNING SPACE ABOARD A LARGE two-mast aluminium sailing ship. A place free of societal norms and obligations, unaffected by the time frames of everyday life, the noise and pollution of the city. a home for dreamers and doers across every discipline, to meet in isolation, express their true selves and learn from each other. a floating laboratory dedicated to EXPLORing NEW HORIZONS in the fields of personal development, authentic relationship, Social entrepreneurship, nature conservation and artistic expression. a never-ending adventure to BRING HOPE, love and meaning to every CORNER OF THE WORLD.

WITH LITTLE PRIOR EXPERIENCE IN THE NAUTICAL WORLD AND ALMOST NO MONEY IN THE POCKET, WE HAVE already SET SAIL. SINCE MARCH 2018 WE LIVE ABOARD our first sailboat, A 33 FEET Peterson CALLED MINTAKA.
CURRENTLY we are in Guarujá, Brasil, doing a complete refit of our sailboat.

The Sea beyond sessions, are a PERSONALIZED MENTORSHIP PROGRAM INCLUDing six ONLINE SESSIONS PLUS A WEEKEND ABOARD TOGETHER WITH a maximum of four OTHER PARTICIPANTS.

It was a beautiful journey of self-knowledge, re-connecting with my essence and empower myself. It was a gift that I gave to myself, to look inside, clean out the dirt, strengthen my thoughts and, most of all, illuminate my heart.
— Juliana

learning to See life through the eyes of the ocean

Sea Beyond is a floating school for self-development. We believe that spending time on the ocean teaches us a set of values, that help us to navigate through life with more passion, presence, self-reliance and light-heartedness. we call these values the OCEAN EYES - a way of seeing life through the eyes of the ocean.

Starting AUgust 2019, we will Start inviting so-called ocean masters - skippers, fishers, divers, paddlers, mechanics, electricians, doctors, etc. - to join our crew and teach us the essence of what they have learned from living on the ocean.

During this time, mintaka will also turn into a kind of Art Residency, where FILMMAKERS, Photographers, DESIGNERS, MUSICIANS, PAINTERS, Writers, etc. are invited to spend time with us and help us capture the Ocean Eyes. The outcome will serve as the foundation of our floating school and help us FUND our NExt GREAT PIRATA ship.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR HANDS-ON PEOPLE, WILLING TO SHARE BEDS, SHOWER WITH SALT WATER AND ADAPT TO EVER-CHANGING WEATHER CONDITIONS. IF THAT SOUNDS JUST LIKE YOU, THEN PLEASE TELL US MORE ABOUT YOU.

applications are accepted and approved on a rolling basis and online only. if we have a match, we will get in contact with you and find a Place and date for you to step on board. to stay independent from sponsorship, all Crew members are asked to pay a daily contribution of R$ 60 for food, booze and other general expenses.

I am a citizen of the most beautiful nation on earth, a nation whose laws are harsh yet simple, a nation that never cheats, which is immense and without borders, where life is lived in the present. In this limitless nation, this nation of wind, light, and peace, there is no other ruler besides the sea.

THE CAPTAIN: CHRISTOF HAS ONLY RECENTLY MOVED TO BRAZIL. IN HIS HOME country, THE PRINCIPALITY OF LIECHTENSTEIN, HE HAS CREATED IDEENKANAL, A UNIQUE PLATFORM COMBINING CROWDSOURCING, MENTORSHIP AND CROWDFUNDING INTO A HOLISTIC PUBLIC INNOVATION PROCESS. as A SKILLED GROUP FACILITATOR AND PUBLIC SPEAKER, HE HAS SUCCESSFULLY SUPPORTED DOZENS OF SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURS TO CONCEPTUALIZE, PITCH AND FINANCE THEIR BUSINESS IDEAS. A MAN OF ACTION, HE LOVES TO FIX STUFF, move AND MAKE HIS HANDS DIRTY. HE IS slightly STUBBORN, A HARD WORKER AND ALWAYS FINDS A REASON TO CELEBRATE. to him, the ocean is his therapy: it´s the place where he feels most alive, manages to calm his mind and put his talents to work. as Captain on mintaka, he takes us sailing, rowing, kitesurfing and spearfishing, nurtures us with his spectacular boat cuisine and makes sure we stay afloat.
