Creativity – like human life itself – begins in darkness. Julia Cameron

Retreat into Darkness

In 2024, you will be able either to spend 9 days in the dark, or to extend your stay up to 12 days in full darkness. Two days follow, in order for you to acclimatize to daylight again.

A spiritual leap in evolution

Physiological changes in the body and the rising of energy frequency will help us reveal aspects of Reality we don’t usually have access to. It is a blessed time for meditation, for feeling deeply connected, for listening to the simmering of True Existence from matter to higer planes of being.

There are four group gatherings a day of 1,5 to 2 hours. That includes: meditative practices, talks shedding light on darkness chemical processes as well as spiritual guidance.

Themes to come

Students have asked for specific topics that will be addressed during this retreat, such as:

  • Becoming divine – the divinization of our whole being;
  • Light work in connection with the chakras;
  • Learning how to hear the messages from God and not confuse them with the lower mind;
  • Enhancing the rising energy;
  • Healing;
  • Clairvoyance etc.

Of course, a darkness retreat always means as well:

  • Giving yourself a chance to really meet who you are in the deepest part of yourself;
  • Entering unusual states of openness and perception;
  • Liberating karma and knots tied in the past;
  • Letting healing take place and allowing it to happen;
  • Waking up to one’s own True Nature…
  • … and so much more.

In this utter blackness, the body functions on another level and gives access to the invisible, increasing subtle knowledge and self-knowledge. You are lifted up to visions, revelations, and new feelings. You’ll meet what you need to and understand the next step, wherever you stand right now.


Mainly prânâyâma and nidrâ. Guided practices on the energy body as well as the intuition body: deep relaxation, meditation, breath work, spontaneous movement of soul and body with music, teachings on the awakening of the heart and consciousness.
