Wake Up Netherlands Retreat: Cultivating Joy & Happiness

In this retreat we will be asking ourselves: How can we cultivate joy & happiness in ourselves and in this world and not be overwhelmed by suffering? Wim and Ida invite us at their beautiful rural meditation farm, the Maanhoeve. The program will be facilitated by them together with a group of enthusiastic Wake Up friends. As well as the usual program of sitting meditation, Dharma talks and mindful eating and so on, we’ll have plenty of time to relax and restore ourselves by being close to nature – on walking meditations, working on farm, and spending time together around bonfires. There will be music and laughter, as well as time to listen deeply and share from our hearts.
