Seaside retreat on Vlieland

” Embark on a transformative journey with Maaike, where you’ll find solace in the serene beauty of Vlieland. Here, silence isn’t just the absence of sound; it’s a tangible presence that envelopes you. I found myself liberated from the chatter of my mind, the tug of my emotions, and the confines of myself. It was liberating to simply exist, to immerse in the silence and embrace its profound wisdom. Maaike’s meditations, coupled with the gentle nudges towards recognizing my completeness, were like guiding lights on this inward voyage. And the unity I felt with nature, with all existence, was nothing short of awe-inspiring. This retreat isn’t about conversation; it’s about communion — with oneself, with silence, with the universe. I urge you to embark on this journey, to unearth the depths of tranquility and wisdom that reside within you.”

A Journey of Spiritual Awakening

In this transformative retreat, guided by the insightful Maaike Dijkstra, an experienced coach, yoga, and meditation teacher, and the author of the inspiring book ‘Stilte ZIJN’, participants will immerse themselves in a world of inner connection and self-awareness. Begin each day with gentle yoga and meditation, and conclude with a serene meditation session. The focus will be on exploring non-duality and unity consciousness, allowing for open dialogue and profound self-exploration.

As a special gift, each participant will receive a complimentary copy of Maaike’s book ‘Stilte ZIJN’‘, illuminating the path to inner peace and liberation.

Why Choose a Retreat of Silence?

Maaike invites you to embark on an inward journey, focusing on self-exploration and deep connection with the Self and consciousness. By transcending the ego and embracing inner peace and freedom, you will discover a profound sense of clarity and serenity. Through the power of silence, you will experience the truth beyond roles, stories, and identities. Maaike’s approach is rooted in systemic thinking, non-duality, and self-awareness.

Throughout the sessions, the emphasis will be on the journey from the mind to the heart. Maaike believes that each individual has the potential to shine brightly. Her guidance is centered on uncovering inner beauty and embracing the self as the highest expression of authenticity and love.
