Self-compassion: overcome your fear
Self-compassion is a mild, non-judgmental attitude to yourself. Instead of criticism or punishment you offer yourself understanding, care and support. In this Mindfulness Weekend retreat you learn to deal in a more compassionate way with difficult or painful situations so you no longer have to avoid these. You stop fighting your fears and simply make contact with (feeling) hem. Then you will conquer your fear and joy, happiness and inner peace will naturally find you. This weekend retreat will be held on the beautiful Island of Texel.
I believe it is possible, supported by a relaxing environment, to find the potential in yourself, learn to relax in life and simply be happy. Take a break from daily life and let yourself be surrounded by the beautiful nature of Texel. You are staying in a great location with plenty of space for walks and relaxation.

Mindfulness Tips and Exercises – make a start now
This mini-workbook stimulates you to take the first steps in the world of mindfulness and self-compassion and helps you to bring it in to practice.
This Mindfulness retreat combines the approach of Kristin Neff with in-depth exercises and meditations on dealing with underlying emotions such as fear. In addition, exercises and teaching directly from Tibetan Buddhism are integrated as well.
Happiness is something already in us and in this Mindfulness retreat weekend we will try to unlock this potential. You will learn to act from love instead of fear. The retreat consists of a dynamic variety of mindfulness meditations, sharing in small groups, insightful exercises, interaction and movement.
With Beyond Mindfulness I aim to make some of the wisdom of the traditional movements (i.e. Buddhism) accessible to a larger group, in order to let people experience long-term inner peace, joy and happiness. In my personal quest, Due to my curious and searching nature, I have walked various paths. I studied in Wales, I lived and worked in Tanzania and worked both in business and the mental health.
I have the ambition to make a genuine contribution so that people can act less from fear and more from love and a connection to life. With my experiences as a meditation practitioner and as a professional trainer-coach I can offer an unique combination of activities.
