some testimonials:

A magical workshop, professionally done, and well organized by a team of wonderful people; a team that pays attention to the flow of the group, aware and open to what unfolds in the moment. Highly recommended for anyone who values darkness as part of the quest for the divine light. Danny Bogaert

I look back on a fascinating inner journey, that has made me more whole. My Soul is visibly working through my body, and sings with Love. Thank you! Giséle Lievens

I’ve had a wonderful time. I am even more in touch with my own life force, my feminine power, and my inner fire. Embrace what is; love in connection with everything. Thank you for the tender loving care. Chandra de Rijk

Coming Home

In this special retreat you spend most of the time in complete darkness. Even a short period of darkness, as during a meditation, or in a (blindfolded) trance dance, can be very beneficial. When you spend more time in darkness, the chatter in your head will settle down. The mind clears up, and room for profound contact with your essence, and the source of life and creativity, is created.

In Darkness we become Visionaries

Our fixation on the light often blinds us. Like a moth to a flame, we can’t help ourselves. We forget that everything is born from the cradle of darkness. As the great creation myths of the world tell us, the true place of impregnation and fertilization is darkness. Although we manifest ourselves, and our ego’s, in the light, we heal and transform in darkness. Ceremonial darkness has always played an important role in meditation and shamanic work. When the mind can safely release the security of the visible world, invisible landscapes of creative inspiration become visible.

We provide a secure space, in which you can surrender to your inner journey. Moments of silence, and time and space for yourself, are interspersed with group activities. We dance, meditate, make musical journeys, stimulate the senses, and are creative in different ways. You will discover new ways of perception, and make deep contact with your life force, your essence, to be reborn out of the womb of darkness, into the light at the end of the retreat.
