Living from Heart-Mind - Annette Knopp
Limited Capacity filling up

Living from Heart-Mind versus Doing-Mind
Many of us have become accustomed to live life under the influence of our doing-mind. The doing-mind can be helpful regarding the practical matters of life, but it doesn’t have any clue about peace, joy or true connection.
When doing-mind runs on automatic our lives feel stressful, incomplete and nothing or no-one is ever good enough. Come and discover how to reconnect with Heart-Mind and engage life from the natural intelligence, warmth and openness of our true Being.

Living the Power of Unity - Jude Currivan
Limited Capacity seats available

Me, We and All - Living the Power of Unity
 
A 90 minute participative and experiential workshop with Dr Jude Currivan
The ancient and sacred understanding of the interconnected web of life and ultimate Oneness or reality is finally being reconciled with the latest scientific discoveries. Instead of the hitherto scientific model of a merely materialistic Universe of randomness and separation, compelling evidence is revealing that our entire Universe not only exists and evolves as a unified entity, but that its very appearance emerges from deeper nonphysical realms of intelligence and intention.

These revelations which integrate with universal spiritual experiences, ‘supernormal’ phenomena and the existence of multi-dimensional realms, have the potential to transform our collective understanding of reality at all scales of existence and vitally at the co-creative level of our everyday lives.

Living the power of such unity expressed through diversity offers us the transformational potential in these pivotal times for our collective conscious evolution.

In this participative and experiential workshop, you will:
  • Discover, in an easily accessible and relevant way, the latest evidence and insights across many fields of scientific research, showing that our Universe is finite, innately in-formed and holographically manifested – literally a cosmic hologram: existing and evolving as a coherent and unified ‘thought’ in the mind of the infinite and eternal Cosmos
  • Share an inner reflection attunement, to support your experiential and embodied awareness of this emerging new perception of unified reality 
  • Learn how such unity awareness naturally encompasses and underpins supernormal phenomena, multi-dimensional communications and empowered intention 
  • Explore the transformational and evolutionary potential of experiencing and embodying such unity awareness

Touching Infinity - Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor
Limited Capacity seats available

The subtle layers of movement and form 
When we open the scope of our practice to an approach that is more of a process than a technique or formula for alignment then yoga postures, mind and movement merge together into an expansive, liberating form that literally feels as though we are connected to infinity. In this class, working with postures found the in the Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga system of practice, we will explore the subtle layers of movement and form that facilitate this feeling and form. All levels welcome.

Call of Love - Hannah Cuppen
Limited Capacity seats available

* this talk will be in Dutch *

Call of Love - a lecture

With the courage to follow the call of your heart you will find both significant life lessons and your deepest fulfilment. Your best contribution to the world is finding out what makes you unique.

Call of Love
Are you doing things that really matter to you? Do you feel a deep longing but do you keep postponing its realisation? Are you living the talents you were born with or holding onto what you've got while trying to ignore what's calling you? The Call of Love is your soul's longing to express its full potential. It requires courage and surrender because you will meet your deepest fears on the path. But you will also start reclaiming your greatest talents. 

Becoming who you really are
At the deepest level we all want to feel connected to ourselves and others, and live our full potential.  Your full potential is who your really are. Do you recognise the longing to get the most out of life? Do you have a dream you want to realise in this world? Do you want to be radiantly happy?

"I'd like to, but..."
People often say: I'd like to follow my passion but I am afraid I won't be able to make a living out of it. Or: I don't feel secure enough to follow my dream... Following your heart's desire may bring up fears and uncertainties. We all have the potential to transform from caterpillars into butterflies, but some of us never shed their caterpillar skins.

Fear or Love?
Our deepest beliefs will be reflected in life. If we look at life from the perspective of fear we'll only see limitations and think that our desire can be fulfilled only by hard work. But there is a field of unlimited possibility waiting for us to hook up. A field of love that makes everything go smoothly and effortlessly - where the universe is working for us, unconditionally and without judgment. The question is: can we make the connection?

Questions addressed in the lecture include:
- What are the natural laws involved with following the call of love?
- What does transformation of fear into love mean?
- What does transforming into a butterfly involve?
- How do we get to be the hero of our own life?
- How do the natural principles work?
- How can we reach our highest potential?

One Simple Thing: How Yoga Works - Eddie Stern
Limited Capacity seats available

One Simple Thing | How Yoga Works

Yoga has many forms and many meanings, but within this variety there is a continuity. Underlying the ways that we practice yoga, think about yoga, and talk about yoga, there is an impulse to seek meaning in our lives, and that is what drives us to the practice. In this talk, in celebration of the Dutch translation of the best-selling One Simple Thing: A New Look At The Science of Yoga and How it Can Transform Your Life, we will discuss the underlying mechanisms of yoga that make it an effective practice for personal and communal transformation, and specifically look at how yoga addresses our bodies innate ability to rebalance and restore itself through ancient yet simple practices.

This is the book presentation of the Dutch translation of the book One Simple Thing: Hoe Yoga Werkt.

Free from me - Juno Burger
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Free from Me - Workshop Energy Clearing

Whenever we think of liberation, peace or healing it is about the absence of that from which we apparently suffer; no more thoughts, conflict or pain. But what if true healing and peace will not come from the absence of what you think you suffer from but from the absence of the part in you which is suffering?

This is the paradox which we will be exploring in this hearts-on workshop that Juno will present at the 2019 Inner Peace conference. He will take you on a fascinating journey into the mechanics and dynamics of energetic exchange between people. You will learn to apply awareness and the power of the compassionate heart to that which you become aware of. What you become aware of is not just what you pick up from others, at the same time you will discover how you have been conditioned to respond to what arises on your awareness. Recognizing this will take you beyond blame and guilt and puts you back in a place of authentic power and more conscious creation.

Becoming more conscious of your rich inner world and meeting it with awareness and compassion allows you to carefully deconstruct a very old story you hold about yourself and others. This gives way to a much deeper connection to all that is alive and allows all of life to flow more freely, bringing abundant health, happiness and
deep inner peace.

Deep Creativity: A Vital Pathway to Inner Peace - Deborah Anne Quibell
Limited Capacity seats available

It is not what we create, but where we create from that matters.

You are an an inherently creative being. Forgetting this may lead you far away from the tides of inner peace to great inner turmoil, frustration, and feelings of irritability; of unhappiness; of being "stuck" or "unworthy" (without you even being aware of it).

In this special talk, based on her newly released book Deep Creativity : Seven Ways to Spark Your Creative Spirit (published by Shambhala Publications in March 2019), Deborah Anne Quibell presents an entirely new perspective on creativity—one that places value on the creative process as much (if not more) than creative products. One that returns creativity to a more reflective, meditative and introspective place. One that sees creativity as a sacred reflection of our divine nature, as a hugely awakening and transformative practice.

Deborah's talk will weave, poetically, around these foundational questions:

  • What is Deep Creativity and why does it matter so much in our modern world?
  • How can we access our inherent creativity? (And what happens to us when we do)
  • What can block us from trusting in our own divine, creative potential?
  • How can we partner more mindfully with the creative unconscious, and infuse our creative life with more soul and peacefulness?

You can expect a session full of heart, humor and poetry with some guided practices.

*Being asked to step in last minute to speak at the Inner Peace Conference, Deborah is currently in a metaphorical cave, having private and intense discussions with her own creative soul. Some claim she has also been invoking the help of any and all creative spirits around her. She can neither confirm nor deny any allegations. ; ) In any case, she is deeply honored to be with you for this session.

"An invitation to simply being in the presence of who you really are, pure Being-ness."
 
We will allow our selves to step out of our person-hood the identification with the persona of whom we think we are that lives in time and space and identify it self with its very personal stories, beliefs, concepts, ideas, imaginations, dreams, dramas, and traumas, etc. Moving beyond the psychological mind or the trying to understand the mind.

It doesn't take long. It is nearer than near. It's who you truly are and always been. The moment we recognize it, we are free, spontaneously Peace is there, Love is there, and there desire has no space.
It only requires your willingness to Be present with no past neither future. It requires your willingness to Be Here and Now.

Satsang literally means in ‘The company of Truth’. Satsang is a group gathering in which you enhance the quality of being human. It is an invitation to enter and explore the fields of Truth together, with an open heart and a naked mind. Allowing silence, clarity, and spaciousness to rise within, and connect us all in the preciousness of pure presence.

Unbinding Perceptions: A Talk on the Empty Mind

While practicing yoga we soon discover that Prana (internal breath) and Citta (mind) are two ends of the same stick.  This eventually allows us to feel our yoga stretches, sensations–patterns and feelings--extend to infinity.  But what about our beliefs, hopes, opinions, and philosophies about ourselves, our world and our yoga?  Do they stretch out to infinity in the same delightful way as our internal Prana?  This talk will look at ideas about yoga, its many practices, its many philosophies, the patterns they make, what matters and who really cares.

They will discuss the continuity of consciousness outside of the body, and how that can directly impact a sense of what is really important in life. Pim van Lommel will present the amazing history of his collection of near-death-experiences from over 30 years of being a cardiologist.

Time and How to Spend it - James Wallman
Limited Capacity seats available

How To Spend Your Time In Order to Be Happier and More Successful — According To Science

Since he introduced the concept of 'experientialism' in his 2015 international bestseller, Stuffocation (Ontspullen in Dutch), James Wallman has been trying to answer this vital question: 'Since we know spending on experiences rather than stuff makes us happier, which experiences lead to the most happiness?’

After consulting with leading scientists at Princeton, Stanford, Harvard, Cambridge, Tokyo, NYU, BYU, MIT, the LSE etc – Wallman distilled decades of their insights into a highly practical 7-point checklist that all of us can use to be more creative, resilient, successful and happier.

These insights are in Wallman's new book, Time And How To Spend It. Published in the UK this April, and in the Netherlands in July, the book shot to #1 in its categories: #1 in Business Motivation, #1 in Time Management, and #1 in New Age Thought. Commentators have called it 'epic', 'a revelation', and 'engaging, profound, and instructive'.

In this, one of Wallman's typically inspiring talks, he will share the 7 secrets to designing and spending your time in ways that are more likely to lead to happiness and success.

Befriending Pain with Yin Yoga & Loving-Kindness - Whit Hornsberger
Limited Capacity filling up

Befriending Pain with Yin Yoga & Loving-Kindness

There is a primordial drive within all living-beings to be free of pain, to move away from discomfort of the mind and body. This habitual, reactive pattern, is in-turn exacerbated by a culture which demonizes pain, pushing upon us innumerable quick-fix strategies to relieve our discomfort, substantiating the unrelenting drive to get-away from anything that feels uncomfortable.


And although we may be well-intentioned in our attempts to move away from these unpleasant states, it is paradoxically the aversive reaction itself which perpetuates the pain and impedes our ability to move beyond it.

But what if we could look upon pain, not as an enemy, or something we have to get-away from. But as a teaching, as a catalyst for healing and spiritual growth? What would happen if, instead of running away from pain, we befriended it?

Through integrating the passive postures of Yin Yoga with the Buddhist practice of metta, or loving-kindness meditation, we will reframe our relationship to mental and bodily pain, gifting ourselves the ability to find refuge within the epicenter of that which the mind has been running from since time immemorial - an imperative first-step towards healing the mind and body.

Limited Capacity full

Yin YogaTibetan Meditation & Sound Bath
- A healing journey

This evening, Irene is inviting you to jump from the mind and plunge into the beauty of your heart. An invitation to quiet down, to unwind, to surrender. To the sounds and to the silence. To yourself.
We were born as love. And as babies we never denied the beauty of our own existence! Once we got a little older, we (or at least: many of us) took on the idea that love and happiness is to be found somewhere outside of ourselves. We looked for it in relationships, in work, in external validation. We go all over the place, to realize that maybe we are looking too far away for something that is so near...
This Saturday evening we go back inside. Back into our hearts. Back to where love already is. Irene shares simple Tibetan meditation practices to embrace and love ourselves exactly as we are. Through Yin Yoga poses we help the body to unwind and open up.

At the end of the Yin journey, you will get to enjoy a long end-relaxation (Savasana) and sound healing bath. Crystal bowls, chimes, Tibetan singing bowls, a guitar and Irene her voice will create a sound landscape in which you can rest and just be.

You don't have to believe in anything. And there is nothing you need to fix about yourself. Just come as you are. And if you don't feel like going into the Yin poses, but just wish to enjoy the healing sounds and the silence by laying on your mat, you are more than welcome too!

Note: please take a warm sweater and blanket to keep yourself warm during the sound bath.

Inner Peace - the Natural State
Bathe in sound - heal yourself - get rejuvinated

Inner peace seems to be what most people are looking for in life. Yet the moments when we experience such peace appear to be rare and short – something unwanted happens and the feeling is gone. We tend to think that before we can be at peace, we need to first arrange, order and control the outer circumstances – so we spend tremendous amounts of time and energy on this, but never seem to quite get there. instead, we feel exhausted.
The good news is, this state of peace is our original nature; it is always available and is highly relaxing and rejuvenating. We love to take you on an inner journey and give you a taste of this unconditional peace. Living life from this place shifts the focus – the need to optimize our lives and every situation disappears.
This evening will be resting, relaxing and healing, with guidance, meditation and live music.

A ritual for transcending limitations - Eddie Stern
Limited Capacity filling up

A Ritual for Transcending Limitations: Invoking Ganesha
The lovable, elephant-headed Ganesha is the personification of strength while facing obstacles and challenges. In this participatory ritual we will be invoking the presence of Ganesh who dwells within us as the capacity to be firm in the face of challenge, and to help us embody receptivity and care. It is taught in Hinduism that all of the deities exist within us as our inner nature of light and love, and outwardly are the external expressions of our heart. When we chant mantras and perform rituals we are not praying outside of ourselves to a deity, but are invoking the inner deity to awaken within us, and for that light to bless us and pervade our intellect, mind, thoughts, emotions, sense organs and actions.

Freeing the Heart (Vipassana Meditation) - Whit Hornsberger
Limited Capacity filling up

Freeing the Heart - The Practice of Vipassanā Meditation

The Buddhist path is a soteriological, or liberation seeking tradition of ancient India, designed and intended to liberate us, through our own efforts, from the burden of suffering.

And vipassanā, or insight meditation is the direct-way towards that goal, the cessation of suffering, as laid down by Gotama Buddha over 2600 years ago. The Buddha expounded that we suffer because we don’t see clearly the true nature of our embodied existence. In his own words, “we have dust in our eyes.” And accordingly, this conditioned inability to see clearly is what keeps humankind entrenched in the seemingly unrelenting cycle of unsatisfactoriness and concomitant suffering.

In our time together we will discuss, according to the perspective of both the Buddha’s and the speaker’s own experiential insights, why we suffer, what vipassanā meditation actually is, and how with patient endurance each of us can tap into our innate ability to see clearly the true nature of ultimate reality, freeing our hearts from the shackles of suffering.

Hannah Cuppen - Call of love
Limited Capacity filling up

* this talk will be in Dutch *

Call of Love - a lecture

With the courage to follow the call of your heart you will find both significant life lessons and your deepest fulfilment. Your best contribution to the world is finding out what makes you unique.

Call of Love
Are you doing things that really matter to you? Do you feel a deep longing but do you keep postponing its realization? Are you living the talents you were born with or holding onto what you've got while trying to ignore what's calling you? The Call of Love is your soul's longing to express its full potential. It requires courage and surrender because you will meet your deepest fears on the path. But you will also start reclaiming your greatest talents.

Becoming who you really are
At the deepest level we all want to feel connected to ourselves and others, and live our full potential. Your full potential is who your really are. Do you recognize the longing to get the most out of life? Do you have a dream you want to realize in this world? Do you want to be radiantly happy?

"I'd like to, but..."
People often say: I'd like to follow my passion but I am afraid I won't be able to make a living out of it. Or: I don't feel secure enough to follow my dream... Following your heart's desire may bring up fears and uncertainties. We all have the potential to transform from caterpillars into butterflies, but some of us never shed their caterpillar skins.

Fear or Love?
Our deepest beliefs will be reflected in life. If we look at life from the perspective of fear we'll only see limitations and think that our desire can be fulfilled only by hard work. But there is a field of unlimited possibility waiting for us to hook up. A field of love that makes everything go smoothly and effortlessly - where the universe is working for us, unconditionally and without judgment. The question is: can we make the connection?

Questions addressed in the lecture include:
- What are the natural laws involved with following the call of love?
- What does transformation of fear into love mean?
- What does transforming into a butterfly involve?
- How do we get to be the hero of our own life?
- How do the natural principles work?
- How can we reach our highest potential?

Limited Capacity full

Free from Me - Workshop Energy Clearing

Whenever we think of liberation, peace or healing it is about the absence of that from which we apparently suffer; no more thoughts, conflict or pain. But what if true healing and peace will not come from the absence of what you think you suffer from but from the absence of the part in you which is suffering?

This is the paradox which we will be exploring in this hearts-on workshop that Juno will present at the 2019 Inner Peace conference. He will take you on a fascinating journey into the mechanics and dynamics of energetic exchange between people. You will learn to apply awareness and the power of the compassionate heart to that which you become aware of. What you become aware of is not just what you pick up from others, at the same time you will discover how you have been conditioned to respond to what arises on your awareness. Recognizing this will take you beyond blame and guilt and puts you back in a place of authentic power and more conscious creation.

Becoming more conscious of your rich inner world and meeting it with awareness and compassion allows you to carefully deconstruct a very old story you hold about yourself and others. This gives way to a much deeper connection to all that is alive and allows all of life to flow more freely, bringing abundant health, happiness and
deep inner peace.

Bliss is your Superpower - Erric Solomon
Limited Capacity seats available

Bliss Is Your Superpower
 
We don’t have to follow our bliss, because in reality bliss follows us!
Every aspect of our existence is permeated by bliss. However, out of habit, we misunderstand the very essence of who we really are. We are distracted by mind’s projections instead of resting in mind’s nature. True Bliss isn’t an experience, experiences come and go. But authentic bliss is always available. This bliss (called Mahasukha in Sanskrit or Dewa Chenpo in Tibetan) transcends circumstances and conditions; it is the indestructible nature of our being.

First we need to come to see how to transform our ordinary way of relating to ourselves and our world; we can begin to See Bliss as the nature of experience. Then, rather than chasing after bliss, we can learn to Be Bliss. In other words, we can uncover the superpower we already possess: blissful awareness.

Erric draws upon on decades of study and practice of the ancient wisdom of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, to present something that is readily applicable to our lives. Combining ancient practices with bleeding edge insights from scientific fields like neurobiology and artificial intelligence, Erric’s poignant insights are immediately relevant to anyone looking to find inner peace and wisdom in today’s chaotic, hyper-fast , interconnected world.

Participants will learn:

· How to make friends with every aspect of our being, especially our most stubborn demons, negative thoughts and emotions
· How to begin to recognize the bliss that permeates all experience.
· A simple meditation you can do anytime, anywhere to enhance intuition, creativity and blissful awareness

This is an advanced seminar, while it is open to all, come prepared to get you mind blown!

Anxiety, Grief, and Intimacy 
one challenge- disguised as three
This event reveals a new understanding of the interconnectedness between anxiety, loneliness, and unhealed grief. Put simply, it could be said that when you heal one you heal all three and that is because they are all aspects of the central issue of our relationship with ourself and others. Through healing we enhance our ability to have deeper intimacy with our relationships, and the reclaiming of tranquility and peace in our daily lives. Class includes lecture, self-enquiry, and writing. Class will include a lecture and writing, simple but high impact breathing exercises; and guided meditation.

Where action meets counter action, where night meets day, where form meets illusion is where the yoga of intelligence and love wakes up.
