Yoga circle (by Nina Schipper)

“In this workshop I use yoga, breathing, meditation and visualization to be able to experience your body consciously. Your body often remembers what’s going on and where you might need some support, comfort or literal exercise. This can manifest itself in all kinds of ways. This workshop is about recognizing signals, being able to discover what you need and how you can give it meaning. It doesn’t have to go away, but maybe we can stop and think about it.
There is loving attention for yourself and each other. We move, talk, laugh, cry, are silent together and all this in a safe environment.
I hope to welcome you to my yoga circle. See you then.”

Nina is a team member of ima afscheidszorg, volunteer at Steunpunt Nova and mother of Madelief*.

Making a commemorative flower arrangement (by Mérie van Zandwijk)

“Creating, shaping and touching people is my great passion. I am inspired by nature, the landscape, the silence and emotions of people. During this workshop we will make our own memorial spot for your child(ren).”

(Dried) flowers and other natural materials; Mérie provides a lot of choice, but you can also bring your own memory (e.g. photo, cuddly toy, toy, letters or candle). A sweet place with flowers and hearts or a cool place with branches and rope. During this workshop you can let your heart speak and then your hands will automatically make what comes up in you.

Walking in memory (by Thomas van der Zee)

Led by a guide, the walk leads you along all the beautiful places in nature around Hoeve Landzicht.

No city or forest this time, but right through the polders. If you need peace and quiet and a nice conversation every now and then, sign up for this walk.

Thomas is bonus dad of Madelief *

Voice Liberation (by Vanessa Léon)

“Singing is feeling, welcoming, unloading, playing and being yourself. In this workshop you will experience that singing is very nice to do.

Singing is healthy and helps you to welcome and discharge emotions. Singing relaxes it and gives a sense of being safe with yourself.

My name is Vanessa Leon and I am a Vocal Intuitive Coach. I would like to go on a voting journey with you. You don’t have to be able to sing beautifully to participate and enjoy. We sing simple songs with words that touch. We will also improvise with free sounds.
I hope to see and hear you on June 11.”

“ The images we received this week remind us of a beautiful, valuable and loving day. A beautiful location, perfect care, great workshops with beautiful lasting memories, the good conversations and a nice intense moment together around the pond. Everyone has his or her moment of sadness, loss, remembrance and remembrance and yet precisely because of that he or she is connected to each other again. We would like to thank you, your team and all employees for this wonderful day! ”
