CORE Programme | Retreat

March 26 @ 08:00 - March 30 @ 17:00

Release. Reset. Reclaim.

Got a feeling there’s something missing in your life?

You don’t seem to get to what really fulfilles you – or know what you want? 

Fed up with playing small, and making choices that don’t seem to be fully yours?

Up for more freedom, clarity, ease and joy in your life?  

Ready, to fully live from your CORE?


In this transformational programme you will unlock your energy, release limiting beliefs, dismiss stagnating emotions, understand deeply rooted patterns of looking for love and approval, face your fears and get back to your own, full, unique power.

This programme is about staying when its hard. Discipline when your patterns avoid. Commitment to yourself because you are ready. We welcome you home to an embodied experience of love, trust and freedom.

“This training laid the foundation for all my Tantric experiences. As if I, after years of meditational practices, stagnation and professional support, could finally hear, sense, taste and feel life in its totality again. I understood something profoundly about who I am in my deepest core.” – Karlijn 


➤ Training days are from early morning to late in the evening, and include homework practices.

➤ We encourage you to make yourself available for the duration of the training, without phone or other disturbances. Schedule some time and space (at least a day) after the training for integration.

➤ This is not a dogmatic training in which you will hear how you should live your life.

➤  You might be confronted with resistance, confusion and hesitations. This training has the potential to transform your life. Some call it years of therapy in a week. Schedule some time for integration afterwards.  


The training is facilitated by Karlijn Kouwenhoven. For details check www.withkabira.com/about.

“Years of meditation, dance, a Master in Psychology and thoroughly studying self development and leadership practices, I have not experienced anything else that pierces straight through the CORE as rapidly and profoundly as these practices. This is what I wish upon my dearest friends and family.”

BOAZ RENS VAN GOOL – Training Manager & Mentor
Graduated in 2017. Grew up in a spiritual community, gained experience as a business professional in sales, training and coaching. He calls himself a spaceholder, coach, father of 3 girls, with qualities such as loving, strong, sincere, hippie and fun.

“Participating in the CORE retreat was a huge breakthrough in unravelling myself.”

Lotus graduated CORE in 2022 and is a professional trainer and (team)coach with her own company Scenpo. For over 15 years she has been working in personal coaching, creating safe spaces for people of all ages, at schools and in teams. She is a lively balance between peace and playfulness. She will fiercely, yet lovingly stand by you when you are ready to “get real”.

“This training is for the brave. Work hard, dive deep, touch soul-base and remember. At CORE I dropped the harvested bullshit, as I rose to my full potential.”

SANNE TEN WOLDE –  Retreat Chef

Sanne prefers to cook plant-based, sugar-free and with products from her father’s bio-dynamic vegetable garden. The dishes she cooks are therefore very seasonal. I love combining different cuisines with a focus on nutritious, innovative and caring. Her positive, bubbly energy can be felt miles away or actually, tasted in every bite. This week, she is the cherry on the cake.


“I believe my food & love can support building a more beautiful world in the most beautiful way.”

Free Online CORE INTRO Workshop: 21 February 2024


“I feel a deep connection with myself. It’s meeting with peacefulness, silence, and at the same time excitement and enthusiasm from every little experience of my life.”
— Ananda Amit Goldenberg, facilitator ISTA

“I was stuck in my life and oh so ready to move on. I needed a big nudge and this retreat gave me exactly that, and so much more.
I feel now that I am me, I am strong and that I am ready for this world!”
— Theleya Britta Hall, Marketeer & Yoga teacher

“This retreat has changed my life!
To me it’s the most transforming of all the retreats, workshops etc I’ve ever done. It opens, grounds, gives expansion, insights, integration, deep memory. It is a big fat Initiation in living who we are truly meant to be; free, playful, open and beyond all limitations of the mind! Karlijn is the best facilitator you can wish for. I don’t think there’s anyone in which retreats I have more faith in than hers.”
— Tamara Indira Spaan
