The Deep Awakening: In Relationship

3985 SG Werkhoven, Netherlands

This is a special Deep Awakening exploring how to live a deep awake life in relationship with others.

We are continually in relationship with our partners and lovers, family and friends, colleagues and competitors. Love is the deepest connection in which we become conscious of our essential oneness. Wisdom is knowing how to live with the paradox that we love others because we’re all one, yet we are also individuals with our own legitimate needs.

At this special retreat we will explore how becoming deep awake helps us live wisely in a relationship of love with others, ourselves and the transcendent oneness of God. We will see how we can support each other in living a deep awake life, in which we feel deep self-empowered and able to bring the best of ourselves to life.


At the heart of the deep awake method are my soul-to-soul connection meditations that we practise with a partner. These are by far the most powerful way I know to transform consciousness.

If you attend this retreat on your own, you will have the opportunity to explore deep connection with a number of other participants, which is a deeply heart-opening experience.

However, at this special retreat I want to specifically invite you to considering coming with someone with whom you are already in relationship, and to explore these soul-to-soul meditations with that particular person, so that you go deeper and deeper into that unique relationship.

You could choose to come with your partner or lover, your parent or child, a friend or sibling. I am confident your relationship will be deepened in an extremely positive way!

You will get the opportunity to connect with all participants during our Deep Awake Immersion on the Saturday night, which is a truly beautiful experience of real communion and big love
