Silent retreat

Silence retreat in Naninne in nature in a beautiful mansion

a workshop filled with beauty and openness to the interior

Finding the Joy of Inner Silence

We agree to the season,

Silence allows us to feel what nature brings us.

Through the practice of stretching and breathing, the mind calms down and we reconnect with our body.

Bart offers you 3 days of meditation and rejuvenation in a place where Silence reigns, as well as beautiful silent group walks.

We will also practice The Walking Meditation and the Vipassana discipline.

I will accompany you during the two slow yoga sessions each day.

Meals are shared in groups and in silence, with attention to gentleness, kindness and sharing.

Bart has lived more than ten years in Asia. In Thailand he was a Buddhist monk, in Japan he practiced Aikido and Reiki, and he lived 4 years in India where he lived in ashrams. Bart made a pilgrimage to link East and West: from India to Egypt. After years of spiritual research he founded the O-KI center in Brussels in 1998, which he has managed ever since. He continues to remain open to a truer life, linked to inner silence and the connection of Heaven and Earth.

In the program:

Practice silence to become the (inner) silence: stop being attached to the word, open to the Joyful Silence of your inner Being

You can, if you want, leave your laptop with Bart at the beginning of the retreat. Avoid using it as much as possible. On the other hand, every day there will be a moment to consult your phone if you wish.
