A note from the facilitator Karlijn Kouwenhoven
“I have not experienced anything else that pierces through as rapidly and thoroughly as these practices. This journey liberated me from being an office fearful workaholic, and invited me to be a full time trainer and enjoyer of life.

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. This is what I wish upon my dearest friends and family.”


➤ 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 journey, 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 drastically transform your life.


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

“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 Initation 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.”
