Every day a mini holiday gives mental peace and balance

Experience what meditation can do for you

It’s retreat time!

Retreat means distancing yourself.
Consciously taking time for yourself and to detach from all the busynes, roles, obligations and patterns you have in your daily life. With as a result peace of mind, clarity, openness and more inner freedom

A retreat is defenitely different from a regular holiday, where there people also try to disconnect from all that is going on. A retreat is zooming out to oversee your life and zooming in to what what is important for you and also what isn’t as you like it to be at this moment.

Although at times it can be hard work, after this weekend your body as well as your mind, will defenitely feel more rested and recharged than after a week of holiday. Retreats also leave you with a certain mental freshness, which enables you to re-enter your life with new inspiration and views.

Theme of the retreat: restore your energy

The theme of this retreat is optimising your energy level. Energy is what enables you to do the things you want to do and live your life, what sets things in motion and keeps things in place in your life as well as the world around you.

Your energy determines how you feel and what you are able to do and is actually a lot more. We will dive deeper into this subject in this weekend.

When and where?

The retreat will find place from the afternoon of Friday the 8. of November until the afternoon of Sunday the 10. of November 2018.

All of the luxurious, spacy and light 2-3 people 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 deepening of your meditation skills!

During the retreat you can enjoy:

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!

Sabine (42) from Amsterdam

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!
