Our center is a place where people aim to embody different aspects of unity. Through a continuous daily program of spiritual living, it offers a home to temporarily as well as long term visitors or residents. We function as a retreat center and school for holistic healing practices, including meditation, yoga, soundhealing and sacred music. Next to these activities, we are a 'school of life' that offers her fruits and lessons through the connection that is created with each other through daily living.

You will be staying inside the old monastery building with all the guests and staff. The house is very spacious and has a beautiful living room and big workshop/meditation hall. You will be sleeping in one of the rooms, mostly shared with 1 or 2 other volunteers. If you are a couple, we will try to accommodate your needs for a private room.
The food is for free for all volunteers and will be offered as well to guests and students who are attending our workshops or retreats.
We are located in Heks, Limburg, Belgium. We are surrounded by an old castle, many trees, fields, orchards and historical buildings. In your free time you can visit as well the Roman ruines in Tongeren or other prehistorical and medieval sites. In about 45 min. drive by car you can visit the Ardennes with its many forests, water springs, rivers, idyllic villages,etc... Brussels and Antwerp are both 1 hour from the center (by car). On our free days we can also plan occasional activities, depending of the requests of the group.
Our castle style small village offers only a few commodities. We have a small café, a very delicious baker. Mostly this place is appreciated for its natural beauty, the old history and buildings and its peaceful setting that accommodates an inward harmony.
You can reach us by taking the train to Tongeren. You can get to Tongeren very easy, in less then 1.5hour from Brussels and Antwerp. In Tongeren we can pick you up from the train station (15min away). We also have a bus connection that stops right in front of our door, but it does not run very regular.
