AVANI One Day Retreat ~ Medicine Journey

This medicine journey will take place at AVANI retreat in Helvoirt, with a maximum of 16 people and a team of 5.

Around 10 in the morning, we welcome everyone and we open the day with a sharing round to get to know each other, and a serving of ceremonial cacao. Then there is time to prepare yourself to go into ceremony. You will have space to go into nature, to write and be in silence. During the ceremony we serve a full journey dose of magic truffles. Beforehand we check in with you what kind of amount would feel appropriate for the time. A light, medium or high dose.

During the truffle ceremony we go inward, into the silence and deeper parts of our consciousness. We reconnect to ourselves so that our inner wisdom has the opportunity to awaken. We will go onto a discovery within, so that we can transform old patterns and habits and get some clarity on the things that serve our life’s highest potential.
The ceremony will be fully guided with LIVE music by me and Robert Tolenaars.

Later in the evening we have dinner together before we enter the night. At AVANI there are different sleeping options. Two private rooms are available, and also beds in the beautiful dorm style rooms.
In the morning we will have breakfast together and another sharing, before you will leave for home.

This journey is supported by a deeply connected and loving team. They will create the right environment for you to let go into yourself and into the medicine in all safety. There will be support in everything that arrises in you, and of course also all the practical questions you might have, so you can fully surrender.

The team:
Pleuni Apollonia en Robert Tolenaars are both musicians that have crossed paths years ago. Together they perform devotional music from all over the world in singing circles, cacao ceremonies and concerts. With a combination of vocals, guitar, shruti box and the medicine drum they offer a unique depth to any journey. They use the power of sound and music as a way to inspire and heal, while guiding you through the light as well as the dark. 

Chiel van Kollenburg connects people with the power and wisdom of mother nature through Breath, Sweat-lodges and Ceremony. Nature helps discover who we are, and what we can let go off.

Jente Hageman facilitates women’s work in the form of mirror-work sessions and menstrual cycle coaching, and brings an intuitive caring energy to the ceremony.
