Executives weekend

Ondernemen op het hoogste niveau is een topsport waarbij fysieke en mentale veerkracht essentieel zijn. Werk je op een hoog niveau dan is het een must als je lichaam en geest daarop ingesteld zijn. Onder druk kunnen presteren, loslaten daar waar nodig, en balans kunnen houden tussen werk en privé is belangrijk om te kunnen presteren en je werk voor jarenlang met plezier te kunnen doen.

Stap voor stap zullen wij je begeleiden naar een gezonde leefstijl die bij je past en helpen bij uitdagingen die in de weg staan van succes en tevredenheid. Ook zullen wij je behandelen als je gehinderd wordt door fysieke en mentale klachten.

Executive Programma

Tijdens de drie dagen dat we met elkaar aan de slag gaan, volgen we een intensief programma. Je komt tot diepe inzichten doordat je op het hoogste niveau behandeld en mentaal getraind wordt. Dit programma wordt enkel aangeboden aan ondernemers en executives die opereren op top niveau en die onze hulp kunnen gebruiken om alles uit zichzelf te kunnen halen.

Ben jij geïnteresseerd, meld je dan eerst aan voor een intake. Na het intake wordt er besloten of je kunt meedoen met dit exclusieve programma.

Mindfulness

De mindfulness die wij toepassen is diepe vorm van meditatie die in het westen vrijwel onbekend is. Tijdens deze mentale training leer je hoe je ten alle tijden al je uitdagingen kunt loslaten. Tijdens de eerste stap leer je hoe je aanwezig kunt blijven zonder af te dwalen. Je concentratie zal toenemen om vervolgens te kunnen beginnen met het echte werk, namelijk het loslaten van ieder probleem punt. Om dit te bereiken maken we gebruik van de meest effectieve ademhalingstechnieken die je voor de rest van je leven kunt gebruiken en kunt integreren in je dagelijks leven.

Osteopathie

Osteopathie is een geneeswijze die uitgaat van de veronderstelling dat de verminderde beweeglijkheid van bepaalde lichaamsweefsels een nadelige invloed heeft op de gezondheid (o.a. functieverlies en pijnklachten). Osteopaten zijn in staat om dergelijke weefsels met hun handen op te sporen en door middel van speciale technieken weer beweeglijker te maken. Osteopathische behandelingen zijn zeer effectief bij langdurige lichamelijke klachten. Hierbij moet men denken aan klachten die 3 maanden of langer bestaan. Afhankelijk van de ernst en duur van de klacht worden de meeste klachten verholpen binnen 3 tot 5 behandelingen.

Acupunctuur

Acupunctuur is al ruim drieduizend jaar één van de vijf disciplines van de Traditionele Chinese Geneeskunde, de TCG. Zij is niet alleen in staat klachten te verlichten of de balans in het lichaam te herstellen maar weet ook vaak het ontstaan van klachten te voorkomen.
Acupunctuur versterkt het immuunsysteem, heeft een gunstige effect op onstekingsprocessen, vermindert pijnen en werkt diep in op de lichamelijke en geestelijke conditie van de patient.

Voeding

Een ongezond voedingspatroon kan ons zowel fysiek als mentaal in negatieve zin beïnvloeden. Denk aan vermoeidheidsklachten, fluctuaties in energie, opgezette buik, neerslachtigheid, veranderende stoelgang en verminderde weerstand. Passen we ons voeding niet aan, dan kan dat op den duur zelfs leiden tot o.a. diabetes, een hoge bloeddruk, verhoogde cholesterol, hart- en vaatproblemen of psychische klachten. We bouwen ons lichaam op met hetgeen dat we eten en drinken. Het is daarom belangrijk dat we de juiste voeding tot ons nemen om gezond te blijven.

Begeleiding door Ton Chan
Master Niels will guide the group during your stay in Thailand. In 2020, Master Niels practiced as a Buddhist monk in Thailand. He guided retreats in Thailand and The Netherlands in previous years, organized by the Inner Mind Institute. Now, Master Niels teaches many students online during live and on-demand courses.

Accommodatie

Many tourists traveling around Thailand want to experience a retreat. There are many international temples where foreigners can visit and find their rest for one week or longer. The temples are often visited and it is a good way to get in touch with mindfulness. To find the more authentic and special temples, you must be familiar with the country and need to have the right contacts with locals who would like to bring you there. Master Niels has found one of the most extraordinary temples over the years and has established a special bond with the monks who live there.

The monastery is located in Lampang in the north of Thailand and is close to the famous city of Chiang Mai. The temple brings a healing and transforming energy with it and is deeply hidden in the countryside where few to no tourists can be found. Our special vipassana retreats will take place in this authentic temple. You sleep in a small primitive house with a bedroom and shower. The ecological temple is powered by solar energy and is surrounded by mango trees that provide an abundance of mangos in the summer. During the day you get up early and the mindfulness practice and lectures take place in the central hall.

Eten en drinken

The delicious Thai local meals are provided by local residents who are committed to the temple. You mainly eat Thai vegetarian meals and you decide whether you eat one, two or three meals a day. In order to get the most out of the mindfulness sessions, we recommend eating no more than once or twice a day. You can experience the effect of this yourself during the retreat.

Living habits within the temple

In Thailand we come into contact with a different culture and that is why it is nice to know more about the living habits within the temple.

Greetings
Thai people don’t shake hands but bring hands together in front of the chest and bend over. When saluting a monk, we bring hands together for the head, instead of the chest, to express respect.

Feet
In Thailand it is not very polite to point our feet in the direction of someone else. This is especially true in the temples and that is why we do not lay our feet in the direction of the Buddha statues or a monk. Most people are therefore sitting in a lotus position or on their knees.

Clothing
In the temple we wear white clothing.

Omgangsnormen
  • Do not kill (humans nor animals)
  • Do not steal
  • Do not lie
  • Do not commit adultery
  • Do not take intoxicants such as alcohol and drugs
Three rules that help us train and purify the mind
  • Meals – Try to limit yourself to eating one or two meals a day before 12:00 noon (this is of course not an obligation).
  • Entertainment – During our retreat period we try to entertain ourselves as little as possible. In the next two weeks we try not to entertain ourselves by dancing, singing or listening to music and / or other entertainment. Reading about Buddhism or spirituality is of course allowed and writing about your own inner processes can even be beneficial. Appearance: Apart from our natural attention to hygiene, we pay little attention to our appearance in the temple. That way we don’t have to use perfume, jewelry or other items to make ourselves look better.
  • Beds – In the temple we do not use luxury or high beds. Of course, a solution is looked into if someone has back problems or other limitations.
Clothing and supplies
  • 3-4 sets of white, light clothing (covering, long pants, dress, etc. T-shirts are allowed) to wear inside the temple.
  • Shawl / thick sweater against the cold in the evenings
  • Bottom sheet and a single duvet cover
  • 1 or 2x a large and a small towel
  • Washing powder for clothing
  • Toiletries
  • Toilet roll and waste bag
  • Slippers and normal shoes
  • (Wind-up) flashlight
  • Mosquito repellent and possibly afterbite
  • Notepad to take notes
The climate

Lamphun has a relatively dry climate compared to the surrounding provinces. In the winter period there is little rain and the temperature is on average between 17 at night and 35 degrees during the day. The winter season is characterized by dry, sunny and pleasant weather. The warm weather is alternated with cool and sometimes foggy nights.

Overig
  • There is enough clean drinking water in the temple
  • You can shower in your own cabine every morning, afternoon, or evening
  • In the temple there are both toilets where you can sit or squat

Vaccinations
We recommend the following vaccinations:

    • DTP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Polio)
    • Hepatitis A (infectious jaundice)
    • Possibly Rabies

More information (in Dutch) about this can be found at: http://www.ggdreisvaccinaties.nl/land/thailand

or check the municipal health service in your country of residence for information.

Travel insurance
Make sure you have good travel insurance when you go on a retreat.

World banking
We recommend that you put your bank cards on world banking. If you do not do this, you cannot use your bank card abroad.

Wat verwachten we van jou?

It doesn’t matter if you have just started or that you have a lot of experience with mindfulness. The retreat will be tailored to your level. During the retreat period, most people feel as if they are stepping into a warm bath. At the same time, you will also experience that your mindfulness sessions can be challenging. It therefore requires perseverance that will lead to deep insights and relaxation.

Patience
Try not to pay attention to the time during the retreat. This can sometimes be challenging because you are not yet used to the mindfulness sessions and disciplined life in the temple.

Dedication
Make it clear to yourself why you have decided to go on this special journey. The more dedication you have during the retreat, the more you can reap the benefits at the end of this beautiful period.

Willingness
The willingness to grow and develop. Self-development is a conscious choice for a higher growth rate. This means that new insights will arise, and where new insights arise, change will follow.

Kindness and compassion
Be kind to yourself and others.

Positivity
Try to stay positive during the retreat and during the trip itself. By dealing mindfully with your feelings you give yourself a very big gift.

What do others say about our courses?

“This course was wonderful! I learned a lot about mindfulness. I’ve continued practicing everyday with the techniques I learned. I live in America. I was willing to get up at 330am. It was that good.”

Amber Kirk
USA

“My whole life I’ve been struggling with my ‘monkey mind’ and self doubt. It controlled my life. During this 10-week course I have learned so much, and so fast, about how to become the observer of my thoughts. More and more I’m able to create mindful energy at any moment of the day. I feel more calm, more love, more aware. I’m very grateful that I had the opportunity to join this course. And thankful for Niels being such a great teacher and putting all this effort in making this knowledge accessible for me/us/others. You rock Niels!”
