These five-day retreats are ideal for anyone who would like to explore the ancient Chinese self-care systems of Qigong and Tai Chi. These are both moving meditations based on slow movements and conscious breathing techniques. The retreats are held at Erve Veldink, a lovely course center based in an old farmstead with a history that goes back to the 14th century. Erve Veldink has been running and hosting self-development courses for the last 35 years. The center is in a peaceful, green setting in the eastern part of the Netherlands, not far from the German border. There is ample time during the retreat for walks in the countryside.
During this retreat, you will be staying in a renovated farmhouse, which is built in the 1800s. Standard accommodation will be in a shared dormitory. Options of double rooms (also for single occupancy) and either shared or single accommodation in one of the holiday flats are also available.
Experience a relaxing and inspiring five-day retreat exploring the extraordinary world of Taoist mind and body practices. A fully-qualified instructor leads qigong, tai chi, and Taoist meditation sessions every morning and afternoon in a group yurt. Introduction to traditional Chinese healing herbs, Taoist diet and nutrition, as well as basic acupressure techniques are also included.
There will be at least one evening session with a local flair such as a live performance of Swedish folk music. Guided walks in the stunning, natural setting of Flatön and, optionally, renting a kayak for a day on the water are some of the nature-based activities available. The hot tub and wood-fired sauna are just the thing for a contemplative and rejuvenating time.
There will be at least one evening session with music and tales.
If the weather permits there will be an afternoon excursion to a local forest.
