Vlierhof Tantra Retreat
Time & Location
About the Event
Expanding from within yourself!
A heart warming winter retreat where we will come together and experience an expansion from deep within our selves. With a variety of workshops and activities where we will connect within ourselves, with each other and the surrounding natural environment of the Vlierhof. Dance, Biodynamic Breathwork, OSHO active meditations, tantric massage, live dreamtime concert, sauna. A time to be silent, share and reconnect.
Reflection and personal development are included in the program in a playful way. With room for relaxation we flow into the new year and reflect on the events which this year has brought us. During these days we offer a safe atmosphere, in which you can be yourself and from which you can connect with others and discover new experiences. Central to this is always your own body. That is the home of your soul, where emotions are felt, where tension can be discharged. The place where the party of life can start!
Our cosy and warm seminar house is located in the 3 hectare park of the Vlierhof. A magical place with a sauna, natural swimming pool, art installations, meditation temples, a labyrinth and a Demeter certified vegetable garden, the source for our lovely and delicious meals. A place for expanding together!
Both for singles and couples. We aim at a group of 16 participants, 6 co-creators and an equal number of women/men. To participate in this workshop you should have at least some tantric experience, in participating tantric massage workshops or private sessions.

Tantric massage is a way to be touched totally, in a connecting way without any purpose. Besides relaxation, it can give more presence in the body, more selfacceptance and the release of old pains, captured in the body.
In our massage workshops we teach and show you how to touch, with presence and attention and respect. We will use The Wheel of Consent as a means to work with and to be aware of during the massages and the whole weekend. With this model we make sure there is clarity about the different roles and positions you have and it also provides in setting healthy borders.
With focussed touch, your presence, loving attention and if possible an intention from the receiver, which you work with, you will be able to give and receive a beautiful connected tantric massage.
The tantric workshops will be given by Steven Ansems (Tibetan tantra massage) and Anina Storteboom (facilitator tantric workshops, Kashmere and Tibetan tantra massage and intimacycoach).
Biodynamic Breathwork uses circular breathing as a main tool with the help of movement, conscious emotional expression, meditation and evocative live music. BBTRS heals the body by releasing chronic tension and supports people to complete arrested and unresolved emotional responses. This can bring an increased sense of aliveness, expansion and a deep sense of inner peace. The facilitators will offer you a safe space and support you in the free expression of yourself!

OSHO ACTIVE MEDITATIONS
OSHO Active Meditations are designed for the societies of the 21st century to help us create silence, a feeling of being connected. The meditations includes activity like physical movements, shaking, dancing, sound, breathing, and move into relaxation and stillness.
Reconnective Dance is an active dance meditation which combines movement, breathing and body awareness techniques with self expressive dance and music. The self development techniques which Reconnective Dance integrates come from both ancient traditions such as taoism, yoga and tantra and new modalities such as bioenergetics and biodynamic breathwork.
