Vlierhof Retreats

Home / Vlierhof Retreats

From the connection to nature you can come more in alignment with your heart and therefore also easier and more open in contact with others.
Living from that connection, being inspired by others, experiencing yourself and becoming aware of who you really are. Developing your qualities, doing the things for which you are on earth and thus making an active contribution to a beautiful world.

De Vlierhof is, because of its gardens and community, a pre-eminent place where all this can be deeply lived and experienced.

By offering accommodation options combined with workshops (midweek), we offer you a complete program.


There is a monthly repeating program (with the exception of july and august):

Retreat week: program and free time, under supervision of Nellie van den Berg. Followed by:

Retreat week plus: the basis is the Retreat week supplemented with in-depth workshops, under supervision of Nellie and Joost. Followed by:

See our agenda!

The Retreat weeks start on Monday afternoon between 2 and 4 pm and end on Friday afternoon after lunch. The Amygdala training starts on Monday afternoon at 4 pm and ends on Thursday afternoon at 2 pm. Of course it is also possible to follow several weeks in a row. Below you will find more information about the content and the program of the Vlierhof Retreats.

You can also choose for a combination of Retreat weeks with a nice discount!


Number of participants

The groups are small in order to create sufficient attention and space for the participants. For the Retreat week a maximum of 4 to 6 people can participate, for the Amygdala training 6 to 8 people.

Another possibility is the Breekweek

Breekweek o.l.v. Cora den Oudsten (Andragoog). Continuous. No minimum number of participants. Individual route or partly in a group. No children. No psychological problems.

Small crisis? Dead end? Point behind it? Break with the old. Your Personal Make Over starts here!


Are you stuck in a whirlwind of events that you cannot solve yourself? A desired change that requires choices. Make those choices together with us. A place to share, a place to think and dream. A Personal Make Over plan provides a breakthrough. And with a sequel. Via skype, or via a return week if you wish.

Retreat week

Is your life not going the way you want it;
are you longing for a change in your worksituation, at home or your relationship,
but you don’t know how to achieve this?;
do you feel drained, empty, in need of a timeout,
in need of reconnection to yourself?
than a Retreat week at De Vlierhof might be something for you!

The Vlierhof with its beautiful gardens is a wonderful place to take a break from your daily life. In this week there is a program with meditation, yoga, singing, sauna, art, silence, personal guidance and working in the garden or kitchen and free time.

This gives you the opportunity to get closer to yourself and gain more insight and clarity about your life. Afterwards you will feel more peace and inspiration to take new steps.
This week is supervised by Nellie van den Berg. She is Life Coach with a lot of experience. More information about her and her work can be found at www.viaamoris.nl.

Retreat week plus

The basis is the Retreat week as described above (read more).

Instead of working in the garden and kitchen there will be workshops aimed at deepening your awareness. These are in the areas of NLP, voice liberation and body awareness. Also in this week there are personal sessions.

Amygdala Retraining Program

Tired? No recovery after exercise? Feeling that your hard drive is full? Then come to the Amygdala Retraining Program at the Vlierhof! A training with special results ………………..

Recovery is possible for people with physical and emotional complaints such as ME / CFS, fibromyalgia, lack of energy, stress, perfectionism, burnout, low self-esteem, anxiety, fear of failure, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic pain, high blood pressure and sleeping problems. Unconscious chronic stress maintains fatigue and a host of other symptoms. This is controlled through our amygdala, the middle part of our brain. To regain health, this chronic stress response must be stopped. With our conscious brain we can retrain our amygdala. In the training you learn to send direct signals to the unconscious brain, which stops the chronic stress.

Joost van den Berg has gained knowledge, experience and inspiration at the top of the Netherlands and Belgium in the field of various modern awareness methods, conducts practice and gives training at various locations in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. Passionate about the enormous influence we can exert on our lives, our health and our well-being. When body and mind work together optimally, people experience joy and peace in themselves and there is talk of a healthy mind in a healthy body. Joost is trained in NLP, Touch of Matrix, Psych-K, Life the Connection, Hypnosis and Family Constellations.
