Journey to connection (EN)
Retreatcenter AVANI (NL) from 18 until 21 april 2024
Hello beautiful humans,
we invite you to our 4-days-retreat "Journey to connection" in April 2024. We will come together to connect in a small group with our body, mind and soul through Breathwork, yoga, the power of our nervous system, myofascial release, soundhealing, microdosing, nature and nurturing food. This all will take place in the safe space of the lovely retreatcenter Avani in Helvoirt, Netherlands.
EXPLORE - GROW - HEAL
We will share, we will laugh and probably we will cry together. But that's ok. What else will we do?
The power of our nervous system
Myofascial Release is a type of soft tissue massage incorporating stretching and elongating of the connective tissues such as fascia. It is a powerful method of releasing tension from problem areas such as the neck, the diaphragm, lower back and pelvis as our body can store also emotional experiences from the past. Myofascial Release is a safe, effective, hands-on technique, involving gentle sustained pressure using (tennis)balls and foamrollers and stretching into the myofascial connective tissue. This helps to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Embodiment explores the relationship between our physical being and our energy. It involves the interaction of our body, thoughts, and actions. We will guide you through this embodiment by working with different breathing exercises, intuitive movements and mapping your nervous system among other powerful tools.
You are consume a microdose of truffles. Why truffles? Because they are gentle on the body, safe for most people and nonaddictive. Yes, they do create challenging experiences, but any monsters and demons we encounter tend to be our shadow selves, awaiting recognition and transmutation. Psilocybin, the psychedelic compound, temporarily stands down the critical, judgmental, highly defended parts of the ego brain. Under this armistice, old memories surface; repressed parts of the psyche bob up for healing; and the mind expands beyond the confines of the body and into a wider, let’s say it, cosmic consciousness. The brain can liberate itself from the stranglehold of negativity and new neural pathways are formed, a process known as neuroplasticity.
Connecting to nature
Have nurturing food
We won't eat a breakfast in the morning, because we believe in the power of intermitted fasting to strengthen our body and to start the first journey of the day with an empty stomach.
Our morning sessions will take place from 8 am until noon. At noon we will have a nurturing lunch and delightfull rest afterwards. We will start back again at 3 pm with our afternoon sessions and will have dinner at 6 pm. Some of the evenings we will have journeys and others we can sit around the fire place or take care of our own space.
During all the sessions and journeys you will be guided by professionals and held by space holders to keep you safe and comfy.

When you register we ask you to fill out an intake form. This intake form is important because there are a number of contraindications, because we offer breathwork journeys and especially if you want to work with plant medicine. For example, some medicines and drugs cannot be combined with psilocybin. But even if you are pregnant, you cannot participate. We work from safety, both internally and the safe setting during the weekend.
