Mindful Surfing Retreat

bekind.jpg

While surfing we face our fears, while meditating we learn how to control our emotions. If you understand a wave and how it moves, you don’t have to be afraid of it. If we understand the cycle of life and why we have to face challenges, we will see our fears as our friends and not as our enemies. To surf is to make peace with our fears, to meditate is to intergrade this into our personal growth in life.

Mindful surfing

In Be Kind, we believe in energy. The nature of waves, energy moving in the water, is the same as our nature. When we practice meditation we can rise up our energy into our spine: the energy of life. With meditation, we are not riding waves, but our thoughts. The goal of meditation is not to quiet the mind or to empty it, it is to learn how to ride the waves of our mind. In one moment our minds can feel like a storm, but when we start to meditate, we learn how to make our thoughts become more gentle and the sea gets soft.


Learning to surf is not only a physical activity, it goes much further: it connects the body and mind. Surfing is a practice that teaches us to follow the flow of water, to be totally present and conscious in ourselves. Surfing teaches us to gain strength, both physically and emotionally. It means learning to face the waves, as we face our personal challenges. Learn to trust: in yourself first, and in the external elements. Learn to let go, to feel alive.

Surfing is also about playing, developing your skills and reconnecting with the child inside yourself, who just wants to experience new things and have fun!

 

Holistic coaching

Be Kind coaches will guide you into your journey with intuitive coaching. This means they will connect with their intuition to read what is going on in your life. This can be with talking or in meditation, healing or releasing exercises. We work on the bigger picture, deeper questions and a more meaningful way of looking into your life. It’s a transformational way to connect with who you are as a being, and not just about what you are doing. It’s more about how you want to feel in life, instead of what you want to achieve. It’s a powerful tool to make long term changes in your present life. Find more information about the coaching here.

Yoga and meditation

The focus in the Be Kind yoga classes are on our YIN side. The feminine side, emotions, feelings, creativity and intuition are part of our yin side. In daily life we are often active in our YANG side. The yang side is our rational and analytical mind, but we believe we also need a connection with our YIN side in order to feel freedom from within. All classes are suited for every woman. We don’t see you as a beginner or advanced, but we will focus on your strengths, giving you some challenges and sometimes bring you a little out of your comfort zone. This will all lead to self-growth, compassion and freedom from within. Find more information about the yoga here.

“Be Kind reminded me of the joy I felt as a child and inspired courage, strength, and wonder (both inwards and outwards) going forward. It was a beautiful balance between a place of comfort, solace, and joy, and a space which gently allowed me to open to all that was hurting or hidden. The women at Be Kind—students and teachers alike— were a constant source of love, laughter, and understanding. I was sad to leave, but left with a deep sense of renewal, love, and trust. The world is a better place with Be Kind.” - Samantha
