Friday 22nd of December:
Welcome - If you arrive a little earlier, you can get in touch with the area and nature.
Start of the day - Get to know each other and we'll tell you what to expect for the day.
Nature experience - Joint walk through the greenery with Rosanna who will tell you all about the plants and herbs that grow at De Bronhoeve and what their meaning and value is.
Experience the stillness within you - You will have plenty of time to stroll across the grounds of De Bronhoeve, to lie in the grass, to experience, to be. No telephone, no mutual contact, just being here and now.
Silent Lunch - We prepare a beautiful, vegetarian lunch for you, in which all your senses will be stimulated. We eat this lunch in silence. You can simply take your plate to a place where you can enjoy it in peace
- Continue - Experience the stillness within you - Walk some more, between the orchards or a bit along the river Kromme Rijn. Lie down in the grass or retreat indoors on a yoga mat. Maybe you want to write something in your journal, feel what the silence does to you
Fire ceremony and sharing circle - We break the silence by sitting together in circle around the campfire. There is room to share what came up for you. You may, but you don't have to. We give the person who wants to share the space to share, without interruptions and reactions.
Closing of the day - We close the day and the circle. You can chat for another half hour or leave quietly.
