May in Amonines

Coming up in Amonines

29 June – 3 July:   Healing in the four dimensions: A five days intensive

15 – 17 July:   Weekends of Silence

 

Nâm Retreat

May started with the Nâm Retreat. In Amonines we had a group of people of which some were completely new, others were new to the retreat and there were some aspirants who already participated in retreats before.

 

It was an adventurous week with a fire alarm that went off in the evening because of a short circuit caused by a toaster, and a driver who lost control of the steering wheel in the bend of the road at night and ended up in the parking lot of Amonines. One of the cars that was standing there received such a blow that it was pushed away and almost hit another car. Luckily we had only material damage.

These are powerful events, especially when they happen during the intensity of a retreat. They evoke your natural responses, while you have all the time to observe them and you are forced to deal with them yourself, without any interaction. This makes these situations a catalyst for transforming your impulsive reactions, or at least make them visible. Next to that, a collective experience of this magnitude creates a stronger cohesion in the group, which supports the retreat as a whole.
Generally, the events themselves did not disturb the quality of the retreat. To give a good idea of the atmosphere of the retreat, below you can see the photo-report of one of the participants and the testimonials of the three new participants.

Testimonials

After a fairly long search and quite a few experiences at previous retreats, I finally feel like I’m ‘coming home’ thanks to this retreat in Amonines.

It was an adventurous week with a fire alarm that went off in the evening because of a short circuit caused by a toaster, and a driver who lost control of the steering wheel in the bend of the road at night and ended up in the parking lot of Amonines.

Amonines has charmed me, touched my soul. I had the privilege of feeling a deep connection with the true, the deepest source within myself. That feels like a true gift.

My search stops, coming home to Yoginâm is what I was looking for.
I feel a lot of love in my heart and I like to share that with everyone here in the house.

I love myself
I love everyone
I smile at myself
I smile at everyone
My heart is open
My heart is for everyone
Demons trying to steal my heart
I split in half with Abbah’s sword

A word of thanks,
that I got to experience this week.
My first retreat, 5 days of silence.
5 days having all the time, all the peace and a very good ambiance.
It was a wonderful experience,
miracles literally happened.
Meditating together, and being quiet together, I recommend it to everyone.

Two new rooms will be ready soon

The intensity did not end with the retreat, as the creation of two new rooms started as soon as the last participant departed. This involved the breaking of walls, dust flying around and notable changes to the house. The works are not yet completed, but we look forward to be able to receive more guests this summer.

External events

In second half of May the Asharum was rented out for an external event. After the organisers’ initial tension of finding enough participants, eventually it all worked out. To our surprise, one of the participants turned out to be a photographer, and she made some beautiful pictures of the Asharum for us (check her website here: everafterstorytelling.nl).

 

Upcoming events
As we mentioned in the last journal we are looking forward to the workshop Healing in the four dimensions from June 29th till July 3rd.

Do you want to:
– Be challenged to overcome your own judgements?
– Get the opportunity to play with perception in a safe way?
– Start building a strong new foundation from where you can continue living more authentically?
– Get introduced to the instruments that will help you connect to your inner stillness?
– Clear the way to reconnect with the natural state?

You are welcome to join us in this workshop Healing in the four dimensions!

Our next Weekend of Silence will take place from July 15 till 17. Please check our website for more information. We advise you to book in time if you want to participate this coming month.

We look forward to welcoming you to Amonines!
