Yin and Sound Healing in Switzerland

RETREATS

Belgium & Switzerland


Spring Awakening Retreat
Belgium Countryside
2 - 6 March 2022

Retreat Highlights

Enjoy five days of countryside retreat to welcome the coming spring and discover a unique blend of body, mind and sound practices. Each day will offer two sessions of meditation practice with Lama Brian, and a morning flow and evening yin yoga with Shannon. Your days will will be infused with the soundscapes of alchemy crystal singing bowls, which introduce a whole new healing modality within yoga, meditation and sound bath exploration. Throughout the retreat, you will get just the right balance of personal practice, stillness and movement, sophisticated and practical teachings, and time to relax alone or with other practitioners. All levels of experience are welcome.

Why this retreat?

Three practices uniting body, mind and spirit create the foundations for a renewed life. We have developed yoga, meditation and alchemy crystal sound healing to help you energise and reinspire, shake off old habits and revision life. The foundational view is that we are already perfect, pure and full of rich potential. Through knowing how to practice we can manifest all our inherent best qualities in all directions of our lives. The results are both immediate and long term. We discover joy in this very moment, and how it is the best way to travel our life path. Join like-minded people and share an unforgettable experience with Lama Brian Hilliard and Shannon van Staden.

The Place

The retreat will take place at a beautiful guest house near Gaasbeek, in the rolling countryside of Pajottenland, very close to Brussels. It is a peaceful land with beautiful walks through woods and fields. In addition to exquisite nature outside, the retreat centre offers a beautiful practice space inside. The old farmhouse has a lovely courtyard with a contemplative pond. A 30 minute walk brings you to a beautiful chateau for group practice sessions in exquisite gardens.

Food & Accommodations

We work closely with our private cook to provide really tasty vegetarian meals. Inge will help get your day going with a healthy snack, tea and coffee. After morning meditation and morning flow we enjoy a generous vegetarian brunch. After evening meditation, yin yoga and sound healing, we will enjoy a delicious 3 course vegetarian dinner. There is no alcohol on retreat.
