Retreats and weekends

Meditation retreat at
 Noorder Poort: 
Weekend 18-20 september 2020
retreat t/m 23 september 2020

Throw everything away, forget about it all…
give life a chance to flow its own way,
unassisted by your mind and effort.
Stop directing the river’s flow.

 – Mooji    

Just be quiet.
There is nothing to accomplish, nothing to understand, just be. The true Self is pure awareness, source of peace and joy. Just be quiet and discover this imperturbable peace in yourself.  Maybe this sounds hard to achive, but in fatc it is most simple and accessible.Our guided meditation will take you by the hand and the practice of self-enquiry will be your key to freedom.
We will also have silent sittings and practice a bodyscan. Sometimes practicing walking meditation, yoga or qigong; there will be some mantra chanting and silent walks in nature.
This retreat is mostly silent and meant for people with sufficient experience. In the spacious environment of the Zen centre Noorder Poort and doing the various forms of meditation, you will experience great freedom, silence and space in yourself!

Yoga & Meditatie Week in Le Vallon-Vert (Midden-Frankrijk) 12-18 juli 2020.

In de prachtige natuur-rijke omgeving van centrum Vallon-Vert verzorgen wij van zondag 12 – zaterdag 18 juli een stille retraite van yoga, qigong, meditatie, bhajans en heerlijke wandelingen in de natuur. Zoals altijd is het thema: de ontdekking van je Ware Natuur, je wezenlijke kern van stilte en vrede. We maken gebruik van afwisselende werkvormen, in beweging en in rust. Alles zal je helpen om tot een steeds diepere rust in jezelf te komen.
Le Vallon-Vert is makkelijk en goedkoop met Flixbus te bereiken, halte Langres. Meer informatie over het centrum hier.
Kosten voor deze week: € 350 voor logies en maaltijden bij Le Vallon-Vert.
Begeleiding door Ciska en Stef – op dana-basis, d.w.z. je kunt zelf bepalen of en wat je daarvoor wilt betalen.
Vervoer: de Flixbus rijdt vanaf bijv. Amsterdam (voor ca. € 20 mits je tijdig reserveert) naar Langres (we kunnen evt. samen reizen). Meer info hier.
