All retreats are directed towards selfconnection, based on the work of Robert Gonzales & Robert Krzisnik.

Delight in Presence is mostly NVC & dyad inquiry meditation practices, starting each day with one hour of vinyãsa yoga, offered by my cofacilitator and yoga teacher Jessica Ayud Manzano. Have a look here to savour the atmosphere of the previous one. Pictures made by my son Tuur (except the fuzzy ones of him, i clearly don’t know how to work with his settings ;)).

We just had our third one in february, you can see the pictures here to get to know the general atmosphere and if you wonder if this is something that would fit your needs.

“Close your eyes
Fall in love
Stay there”

Wild View Retreat Center, Faro, Portugal

Imagine 5 days of immersing yourself into NVC with other empathic humans, in the sunny south of Portugal, surrounded by mountains, starting with Yoga class every day and being served healthy vegetarian meals! Which needs and longings of you would be met, maybe finally, after a long time?

We invite you to join us – Kathleen and Jessica – on this NVC&Yoga Retreat at a very stunning location, close to Faro. We’ll share 5 days of diving into the blessed mess of our own heart. We will reconnect with what is precious inside of us: our longings, our joy, the sweet and the rough pain. We will nurture our capacity to make ourselves fully available for all of it. These days, we’ll be shifting gear from doing to being, from stress to relaxation, from running to walking with grace in our own pace, listening to our own voices and making our own choices.

Every morning, Jessica will offer both dynamic and gentle, supportive Vinyāsa yoga. We ‘ll start the day with moving our bodies, turning our attention to our sensations. We will connect breath and movement, alternating between fast and slow pace, between laughter and concentration, finishing with relaxation and meditation. Kathleen will offer two daily circles and two NVC-workshops.
You will be offered several kinds of NVC-practices, including dyad inquiry meditations, guided self-empathy, coregulating resonance work and other compassionate bodywork.
You will also have time for a reviving dive in the swimming pool, a relaxing soundbath and integrative walks in the wild surroundings of the beautiful Algarve nature.
