Curaçao Advaita Vedanta Retreat

Ashram Curacao offers the opportunity to get in touch with spiritual values, as documented in Indian philosophy, with the purpose of eventually obtaining insight into one's true nature or self-realization. These insights can be acquired regardless of origin, culture, religion, or conviction. Advaita Vedanta or non-duality, one of the oldest schools of Hindu philosophy, is the main understanding of the ashram, but we welcome everyone who is seeking a deeper sense of self-awareness.

The Ashram shares its premises with Dinah Veeris which is Curacao's most famous herbal lady. The Ashram house is the center of the Ashram and close to the meditation and yoga area. With two newly planted food forests (permaculture and syntropic farming the Ashram executes farm to table. The small forests also function as mindful activities like gardening and harvesting. Truly an amazing place.

Ashram Curaçao's approach to yoga is its broader original system. Yoga means unity, or, becoming one with source. Self-realization is originally what yoga is about. There is a lot more to yoga than postures and meditation.

During your time at the ashram you will learn meditation techniques, postures that work for you, and acquire better breathing awareness. Insights on how the ego works will arise, the monkey mind will become less active and you will obtain a deeper understanding of the mechanics of the brain and consciousness.

Note that the mind needs at least 3 days to get acquainted with the tranquil mind. From 3 days on the mind tends to open up to obtain a greater awareness of spiritual realization.

The ashram is beautifully located in the midst of rural area Fuik. This quiet and serene place shares its premises with the well-known herbalist Dinah Veeris. Dinah's herbal oasis is part of the Ashram experience. Dolph and Nephtalie run the ashram together and are happy to share their space and practices with everyone on a path to self-realization.
