Mindfulness Retreat

Via Self-compassion face your fears and better selfcare

Mindfulness and overcoming your fear are the central themes of this weekend. 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.

Instead of criticism or punishment you learn to understand, care and support yourself. In this Mindfulness Weekend retreat you learn to be more present, aware, less judgemental and lastly to deal with difficult thoughts and emotions in a more compassionate way. So you no longer have to avoid painful situations. You stop fighting your fears and simply make contact with (feeling) them. Then you will conquer your fear and joy, happiness and inner peace will naturally find you.

Note that the mindfulness retreat will be primarily in Dutch and if you are hesitant if your Dutch is sufficient don’t hesitate to contact me.

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.

Reducing stress

Learn to let go of stress, control and perfectionism and be more relaxed and in touch with yourself.


Become aware of your limits, recognize stress signals and allows stress to be released.


The approach is down-to-earth, practically applicable, fun without loosing any depth.

Tackling root causes

We go to the root of the matter and merge western psychology with eastern traditions.


This Mindfulness retreat combines the approach of Jon Kabat Zinn and Kristin Neff with in-depth exercises and meditations on dealing with underlying emotions such as fear.

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.
