Check-out Time:

The Samaya abbey has character and breaths silence and sustainable beauty. The interior and guest rooms are beautiful decorated with almost everywhere a view of the surrounding garden or nature. The guestrooms are comfortable luxurious in an elegant style. In combination with the surrounding nature is assuring that you will have a pleasant and relaxed stay. All rooms have a private bathroom consisting of a sink, a shower, and a toilet.

Inner alchemy uses the chapel as a meditation room and in good weather, you will also meditate or give yoga classes outside in the garden or park. For yoga, you will use a spacious separate room with large windows. Because the RIVM measures only for family members or couples, shared rooms are available only for couples or families during COVID-rules. The garden surrounding this abbey has a terrace and you can picnic during summer between the several fruit trees.


In a beautiful, natural place, you get in this retreat the peace, space, and nutrition to reconnect with your true self. With this unique and intensive program, you make contact with yourself at a deep level and free yourself from obstructive patterns and beliefs. Through Restorative yoga, breathwork, mindfulness, meditation, and individual iRest consult, you make contact with your strength, love, and life energy. You go deep, very deep so that you become aware of and can transform your tension, emotions, and thoughts. You are going to clean up old programs that are still active in your system and in your life.

After this retreat

  • You are full of insights and ideas
  • You have come to your senses
  • You have experienced magical moments
  • You have lost a lot of old thoughts, feelings, blockages, pain, and fears
  • You know how to express yourself as your most authentic self. You have come into contact with your core: with who you really are
  • You will experience deep relaxation and healing
  • You have knowledge about yourself and the answers you have been looking for

What can you expect?

Through the combination of yoga, meditation, conscious nutrition (vegetarian), and individual guidance, this retreat is a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual detox. In this retreat, you go much deeper than you can imagine. A transformation retreat is often experienced as life-changing. The retreats are given in small groups (maximum 14 people), so there is plenty of room for personal guidance.

Together with inner alchemy's inspired guidance and the bed of a group, you make a profound inner journey. Inner alchemy helps you solve old pieces through transformative coaching techniques. You get clear what lives in you, what wants to be seen and heard. You meet yourself and bend old beliefs into strength. You are completely free to spend your own time in this retreat. Their intention is to help you with your personal development at your own pace and to enjoy the place where you are.

They want you to enjoy yourself in a way that suits you to feel optimal mentally and physically fit and to experience inner harmony with yourself. You will understand that Denicious does recommend that you largely follow the program to get the maximum benefit. Of course, during the retreat, there is also plenty of room for fun, humor, craziness, and playfulness.

In short

  • In-depth meditations
  • Transformation processes
  • Group processes
  • Individual session
  • Learn a lot about yourself and personal and spiritual development
  • Relax and unwind
  • Connection and fun
  • Tasty (vegetarian) food and drinks

For whom?

The inner alchemy retreat is intended for:

  • Anyone who is open to this path of meditation and self-realization
  • Anyone who would like to change the inner struggle with limited thoughts, beliefs, or emotions
  • Anyone who really wants to live from the heart
  • Anyone who is happy with yoga, it is accessible for all levels (beginners or advanced)
  • Anyone who wants to experience deep inner peace and relaxation

The program consists of meditation, yoga, breathwork, and individual IRest consults. There is plenty of room for yourself in the afternoon. You can give substance to that yourself. Denicious takes consciously healthy and tasty vegetarian food for granted. The inner alchemy is a unique life-transforming program of Restorative yoga, breathwork, mindfulness, meditation, and individual IRest consults. This program helps you:

  • To become aware of where you hold tension in your physical body
  • To release physical tensions and emotions that you keep stored in your body
  • To explore and transform-limited thoughts and beliefs
  • To create deep relaxation to support your healing
  • To express yourself as your most authentic self

Individual consultations

To support the healing of a client, an individual consult of I-Rest can be combined with energy healing. This consult is given by Denise Harskamp, a qualified holistic therapist. I-Rest is a modern-day adaptation of the ancient meditative practice of yoga Nidra. In a one-on-one session, the client is guided in a meditative and deep relaxing state from where a self-inquiry starts of possible thoughts, beliefs, emotions, or images that are present in the moment.

By welcoming all that is present in a state of awareness without judgment, you are able to go beyond self-limiting beliefs or conditioning and transformation is possible. I-Rest connects to your unshakable and unchangeable essential being.

Personal approach

For the retreat, inner alchemy works with small groups of a maximum of 14 participants, allowing their teachers and therapists to give tremendous personal attention to each and every student and to offer a program that fits the participant's personal needs.

Free to attend-retreat

Please note that all the classes are optional during your retreat. Their intention is to let you develop at your own pace and to let you enjoy your stay. They want you to enjoy your retreat as much as possible, to become healthy in mind and body, and to learn how to feel at one with yourself.
