Every day a mini holiday gives mental peace and balance

Experience what meditation can do for you

It’s retreat time!

With all the current circumstances, travelling is less easy and more challenging. Holiday in our own country is because of the high demand pretty expensive. People still are in need of some vacation vibes en this is an excellent alternative! Are you curious how a long weekend can provide you more mental and physical rest and balance than a week at a beach resort? You’ll find it at my upcoming retreat!

Retreat means distancing yourself.
Very consciously taking time for yourself and detaching from all the busyness, roles, obligations and patterns you have in your daily life which provides you with peace of mind, clarity, openness and more inner freedom.

After this weekend your body as well as your mind will feel more rested and recharged and will enable you to re-enter your life with new inspiration and views.

When and where?

The retreat will find place from the afternoon of Friday the 12. of November (start 17h00, welcome from 16h00 onwards) until Sunday afternoon the 14th of November 2021 (we leave the villa around 14h30).

We will stay at a beautiful villa in Enkhuizen, surrounded by nature. All of the luxurious, spacy and light 2-3 person bedrooms, have their own bathroom and have a view on the forrest outside where you can make nice strawls in your free time. All this is in around one-and-a-half hours from Amsterdam Central Station by public transport, or 45 minutes by car.

What can you expect?

Peace of mind and inner balance and deepening of your meditation skills!

During the retreat you can enjoy:

  • the peace and calm of a retreat
  • all the conditions to really find yourself again
  • a boost of your energy level
  • deepening explanations about meditation
  • yoga and qi gong lessons by Ria
  • guided meditations
  • breathwork
  • digital detox
  • delicious, healthy and plant-based (vegan) meals

And guaranteed more relaxation and resetting than a week at a beach resort.

Lectures and meditations will be in English.

Give yourself this present of relaxation and resetting!

Thanks so much for this great retreat! Roel has this special quality that I love where he can bring laughs and lightness into answering even the hardest questions. I truly loved the process. Thank you Roel for your guidance!

For his retreats Roel collects nice groups of people and that he also puts energy in making a well fitting program and finding a good location, is clearly visable. Roel brought us a variety of meditations during the retreat and because also the meals and all other things were very well taken care of, I could really let everything go during the weekend. Absolutely something to do again!

I joined Roel’s meditation retreat. Roel is a great host and all was taken care off into detail and there was a great program for us. The guiding meditations he gave and the topics of the teachings were very clear and inspiring. For the first time I managed to realy experience and feel certain things! Thanks a lot!

Attending Roel’s retreat was the right move in my search for a bit of space from my everyday life. With informative dialogue, a beautiful location, and varied meditation and relaxation techniques, I came away feeling both energized and more importantly refreshed. It was a welcome retreat in to one’s self and one that I would recommend to anyone no matter your mediation experience. Enjoy the silence!

Even one and a half week after the retreat day I still cannot grasp how calm I was afterwards and the rest of the week. Also I experienced a lot of energy and all of that I kind of still have. It was a very challenging and pleasant experience that really gave me a boost!
