Moved by Love

Door liefde Bewogen ~ Moved by Love

Weekend retreat 20/21 November

Samaya in Werkhoven near Utrecht


Through yoga-meditation, mantra singing and spending time in silence we will explore how we can allow ourselves to be moved by Love.

We will allow Love to be the source of our effortless movement in meditative yoga asana and give expression to (our yearning for) Love as we sing kirtan and mantra together.

In Silence we will discover Love as the container and content of all.

We will take a silent walk in nature and gather around a fire in the evening. The meetings will be inspired by the non-dual and devotional traditions of India. I will speak Dutch and can add English if needed.

This retreat is on donation.

There is a fixed price for the stay and meals and in addition to that you will make a donation for Ganga's offerings (see below).

You will stay at a very inspiring and peaceful venue called Samaya. Samaya is a previous nunnery surrounded by a beautiful garden and you will feel welcomed by great care, beauty and silence. The cooks will serve us the most nourishing and delicious vegetarian meals. Special diets can be met if communicated at least 11 days prior the the retreat. No alcohol will be served and we will use phones as little as possible.
