MINDFUL AND NON-VIOLENT COMMUNICATION IN Combination With YOGA Weekend Retreat on the Veluwe

Both in our private situation and in our work you often notice how difficult it is to communicate your message openly and in the right tone of voice. There are 3 reasons why we do not communicate 70%. 

1) Not wanting to hurt the other
2) Afraid of conflict
3) Can't find the right words/formulation 

Not finding the right internal or external words or form of communication leads to suffering: frustration, dissatisfaction and a state of confusio

Partly for this, the Buddha has devised the 8-fold path to reduce the suffering in yourself and what you cause in others and to increase your happiness experience:

1. to have the right insights - in accordance with the four noble truths: there is suffering, there is a cause of suffering, there is a solution to this suffering, there is a path to the elimination of suffering.
2. having the right intentions - no urge to possess, anger or cruelty
3. using the right words - no lies, raw language / the right tone. Gossip or slander or too much talk
4. acting correctly - not enjoying at the expense of others, no violence against people or animals and not stealing
5. Use the right way of life - a fair and beneficial profession
6. the right effort - the commitment to promote the beneficial
7. Focus the right attention - live and be alert for the here and now
8. Have the right concentration - on the here and now, or on a beneficial object

In this retreat we will mainly work with parts 3, 6, 7 and 8 of the Buddha. By learning the right way of speaking in combination with mindfulness (= mindfulness) and compassion (self-compassion and compassion towards the other) you get a harmonious inner life and with respect to the outside world.

To achieve a relaxed body we will use physical work, various forms of yoga (hatha, dru, yin and chi kong) to remove the physical tension from the body.

To get a relaxed mind and make room for sufficient self-insight, we will first silence the mind in this retreat through classical Buddhist stillness meditation (shamatha / shinee) and then through insight meditation (vipassana / lhagtong) reflect on our own way of communicating.

What is the effect of your way of communicating on 4 levels: physical, emotional, mental and energetic. And do you communicate from your head, heart or stomach? We will work with these insights.

We will work with the theory of the Buddha as well as with Western theories of Marshall Rosenberg, among others, who has written a beautiful book about non-violent communication. Through theory, practice, role play, a basis for a new way of mindful nonviolent communication will be created, without judgment. Taking your own responsibility in this is essential. You can keep pointing to the other person but this cannot be changed. Change starts with you: "Be the change you want to be". If you point to another, 3 fingers point to yourself.

What are the benefits for you?

- Change of your automatic way of communicating. 
- From unwanted / non-beneficial way of communicating to a desired beneficial way of communicating. 
- A greater awareness of it perceptible physical, emotional, mental and energetic effect of the way of communication. 
- Greater awareness of the effect of your communication on the other. Awareness of interdependence. 
- Dropping silences and learning to feel comfortable without filling them up. 
- Learning to ask open questions to better understand the image of others know. 
- Learn to accept what cannot be changed.

Who is this retreat suitable for?

For individuals who want to develop greater awareness and skills on the subject of mindful nonviolent communication. All ages.

The whole is supported with a delicious vegetarian cuisine, nature walks, poems, Buddhist philosophy, rebalancing massages, singing mantras and lots of humor. Sometimes life is hard enough!

Everyone gets a single room. Each room has its own shower and toilet. The beds are already made and towels are ready.

Yoga ensures a healthy and relaxed body and thus paves the way for a deeper inner vision and feeling. We examine and experience our three bodies: the physical body (attitudes), the energetic / emotional body (feeling) and the mental body (thinking). With power, inspiration and connection as a starting point, you learn to recognize and understand your automatic thinking and behavior patterns through yoga and mindfulness exercises. This way you learn to function more effectively, both at home and at work.

During the entire retreat you can enjoy nature walks, get to know inspiring people and you can use the environment for your tranquility. In between, delicious vegetarian meals are prepared.

Below is a review of a participant who participated in a similar retreat in Heerde.

What a wonderful, very intense and especially healing week it was. With you Hans as a very thorough teacher and coach, the week brought me very close to myself again. Many thanks for the practically applicable practical exercises, the varied program and your loving training to gain more insight into ourselves. Many thanks for your personal attention and advice. It has strengthened my decision that I should go my way more, which will make me happy. A very successful week that gave me insight and further inspired me on my spiritual path.

Earlier experiences of participants

The retreat of nonviolent communication was wonderful! The location; Land van Nu is located between green Groningen meadows and the care is particularly good. Aryvedic was specially prepared for our group: very healthy and delicious. You just felt the energy flow in. Occasionally people ate in silence, which was also very pleasant. The room was fine and the sauna was turned on on request. For an extra fee we could be massaged by Henriëtte and she also gave a nice yoga class one morning.

The course: Hans Kloosterman provides a safe group and environment. Within this he alternates mindfulness meditations and walking, information about the technique, yoga / movement theory with the practice of non-violent communication.

I have gained a lot of insight into this form of communication. For example, being reactive towards others is mainly related to your own old pain. That daring to be vulnerable and asking for help are necessary for non-violent communication. Once at home, this appears to apply well as long as I am aware of it. That is very nice because then everything you learn does not stay where you learned it. In short, this retreat is really recommended if you need loving connections and relationships with others, close by or further away from you. Moreover, you really rest from these four days. I'm glad I awarded this to myself.

Thank you Hans and the other participants. Namasté
