NEW! ONE DAY SILENCE retreats: Su 1 March, 21 June, 20 September and 20 December 2020 - Haarlem, The Netherlands

In seven steps to stillness. Learn to listen to the language of your body.

The mind becomes completely still if you do not talk. It’s often more healing to listen to the language of your body rather than listen to- or talk about the challenges you or someone else face. This day allows you to practice reaching inner stillness, to focus completely inward.

Attendees are asked to detox digitally. Leave your tablets at home and give your phone a break too, while you indulge yourself in seven hours of silence. These hours you will drink ginger tea, fresh mint tea and healthy soup for a gentle detox of the body. You will be guided by Ingrid and enjoy yoga and meditation practises and a zen walk in the oldest park of the Netherlands.

The facilitator of this silence experience is Ingrid Valks. A yogi with a background as entrepreneur and director in the corporate world. In her business life she connected people with brands and organizations. Today she connects people with themselves and the people around them.

In the morning, Ingrid will lead you in a yin yoga class to create space in your body and move beyond the physical to connect with your energetic and emotional body. After this, there’s an opportunity for you to rest and digest. Followed by a zen-walk in the oldest park in the Netherlands ‘de Haarlemmerhout’. To create space in your mind, Ingrid will then guide you in meditation.

You’ll be surprised how easy it will be to let go of your thoughts and worries, with only your focus and breathing. Before we close the day, you’ll take the seven steps to a deep stillness inside you. Ingrid will take you on a journey, opening the seven major chakra’s. 

'I enjoyed every minute of this experience and I realise I need to rebalance my mind, body and heart on a regular basis. '
