Nâm Meditatie Retraite

In Andalusië, Níjar

Go beyond everyday reality. Embrace silence. This event is an intensive transformative journey. A retreat that opens to Awareness and to a deeper and wider resonance of living.

In a world saturated with constant stimulation, need for activity, and distraction, engaging in moments of true peace and stillness is like drinking water from a pure and untouched well; a precious but rare necessity. A Nâm Meditation Retreat offers a concentrated opportunity to pause and reconnect with the essence of being.

Staying in the Garden of Nâm Living means unplugging in a safe and serene environment, surrounded by the beauty of the Andalusian landscape. After the day of your arrival you have a full day to unwind, relax and to get ready to enjoy the optimal benefits of the coming 2 days. In these two days you will join the intensive meditation rhythm of the Nâm monastics. During this brief but intensive journey of profound inward exploration you’ll be carried by the enlightening presence of the mystic Yoginâm. The caretakers handle all practical needs so that you can focus without distraction; exploring the otherwise hidden depths of your being.

Through the practice of meditation and recitation, the chatter of thoughts will quiet down and as the noise subsides, you’ll discover the gentle rhythm of your breath – the rhythm that anchors to the present moment and a gateway to true liberation.

Note: This retreat is a catalyst for attuning to a transcendental essence. It is not meant as a temporary escape, ‘recharge’ or therapy. However, the beneficial effects that are often longed for by the latter may certainly emerge during your stay or in the days, weeks and months that follow.

You will be introduced to practices and regain insights that provide a basis for a different resonance in daily life. One that may enrich your relationships, empower your decisions, and infuse every moment with a newfound sense of clarity, presence and purpose. You’ll be better able to remember that peace and wisdom are natural and always somehow within reach. Attuning opens the door that provides for alternative and more beneficial strategies in dealing with complex and sometimes demanding life situations.

A state of Attunement immersed in memory continuously exerts its impact in daily circumstances. It is like a love play with peace and wisdom that somehow miraculously appear within reach.

Voordelen van het bijwonen van de Nâm Retreat of Silence

1. Verdiep je meditatiebeoefening

An intensive retreat offers a concentrated yet brief period of time dedicated to explore states of meditation. With minimal external distractions and a structured schedule, you will experience the use of refined ancient techniques. 

2. Innerlijke verkenning en zelfanalyse

Periods of concentration and of silence provide an opportunity to turn your attention inward and explore the inner landscape. Without chatter and distractions, you can observe Spirit, Body, Mind and Soul as dimensions of experience more clearly. This improves a better understanding of yourself, your values, and your relationship with the world.

3. Stressvermindering en ontspanning

The Intensive Retreat offers a break from the hectic pace of everyday life. By temporarily disconnecting from regular daily burdens, you create space for relaxation and stress reduction. The focused practice of meditation calms the busy mind and reduces anxiety. This allows you to experience a greater sense of peace and well-being.

4. Bewustzijn en aanwezigheid in het dagelijks leven

During a sustained practice of meditation, brief and intense, you will take steps to allow Awareness to filter through. Attitudes you may discover, such as openness, loving-kindness and compassion have a beneficial influence on your routines, relationships, and activities; enhancing the quality of life.



The intensive meditation retreat has a focus on silence throughout the day. As a general pattern, communication is suspended during the retreat, with digital devices set aside. The caretakers will facilitate this orientation. We encourage you to limit impulses and expressions, creating space for silence to take over.

Meditatie en recitatie

The daily rhythm with its silence, regular meditations and meals, sets the stage for the yet unknown to emerge. Unique techniques, such as using a rattle to influence brain frequency, guide you into meditative states. Reciting from the book ‘Songs for Lovers’ invites a psychological process free from rational analysis.


HarpMood is een unieke meditatie-ervaring. Een staat van meditatie is meer dan alleen maar stil zijn. De geest blijft actief. Allerlei ongeziene gewoontes en emoties kunnen door meditatie helderder worden. De aanwezigheid van Yoginâm bij HarpMood is behulpzaam en ondersteunend.

The sounds in the HarpMood reflect the state of those present. Making use of different moods in tuning the harp, Yoginâm guides the retreat days in such a way that hidden barriers are invited to surface and dissolve. A Nâm Meditation Retreat provides a safe environment to ignite a transformative process.

Meditatie Programma

During the Nâm Meditation Retreat each day you will follow a concentrated rhythm of monastic meditations. Each meditation lasts about  half an hour. Refined ancient techniques calm the brain activity and invite a state of inner silence. These techniques are simple and have a strong impact.

De betoverende tuin en wandelmeditatie

Ons meditatiecentrum is genesteld in een prachtige en ruime tuin, bestaande uit acht terrassen op verschillende hoogtes, allemaal onderling verbonden met trappen en kronkelende paden. Dit ecologische en eetbare park heeft meer dan 200 inheemse bomen, waaronder olijven, citrusvruchten, noten en bananenbomen, samen met een verscheidenheid aan planten en bloemen.

Geniet van een schilderachtige wandeling met een adembenemend uitzicht op de bergen en de Middellandse Zee in de verte. De tuin is in harmonie met de principes van permacultuur en bevordert de balans tussen de stem van de natuur en de menselijke behoefte aan gezonde voeding.

Een blikvanger in de tuin is een grote driehoekige trap die de Triade van Zijn wordt genoemd. Dit is niet alleen een symbolische structuur; het is een krachtig instrument voor contemplatie en persoonlijke transformatie. Het is een voertuig voor het realiseren van de ware aard van het mens-zijn. Het dient als centraal punt op de meditatiewandeling in de serene tuin.
