Embrace Yourself | Relaxation Retreat
You know that need to sometimes be ‘off’? Being able to be completely offline, no obligations, no having to look at your mobile dozens of times a day. Not being busy with the outside world, with expectations, roles, deadlines, to-do lists. And above all, the need to really take some time for yourself, to put yourself first for a while. The latter is often easier said than done. In our busy lives, full of patterns and schedules, it’s almost impossible to say ‘I’m going to focus on myself for a few hours now.’ Before you know it there is a distraction, a phone call, someone who needs you… Those moments of ‘me-time’ are often short-lived. What would it be like if it were possible to live in some kind of bubble for an entire weekend? You can let go of all your obligations for a while, others will temporarily take over your tasks. You literally step out of your normal life so you can just be with yourself. I created this bubble for you! All you have to do is step in.
This is not a silent retreat, not a first activity that starts at 06:00 and not a packed program. It is a retreat in which connection is possible, just having a nice conversation or sharing an experience. The days start at 08:30 and I have opted for a nice balance between activities and free time. So that you can mainly just Be and also relax. I believe in a super valuable program, with activities that provide depth and transformation, but a retreat can also really feel like a vacation.

* No less than 3 guest teachers will guide a session this weekend! I wish you the best experiences, which is why I have invited guest lecturers who love their work and who have a lot of experience in their field.
