The Venue

De Brink is located in Herentals, approx. 25 km from Antwerp. It can easily be reached by car, bus or train. From the airport of Brussels (BE) or Eindhoven (NL) it is about a one hour drive.

The center is surrounded by nature and frequently accommodates large groups of people.  It offers the possibility to go for a long walk in the forest, enjoy a mountain bike trip or for those who prefer the calm and quiet, to just relax.


We are in a separate building, Zonnedauw. This is a place where we are separate from the outside world and cannot be disturbed by visitors. In this building we have a kitchen, where a vegetarian cook will prepare the tastiest dishes. We have a large Taman and next to it a silent room to our disposal. Adjoining the Taman we eat together.


There are only 4-person rooms. There is no possibility to sleep alone in a room.
Showers and toilets in the hall.
Sheets and blankets provided.
Towels are not provided, we must bring them ourselves.


Our trusted cook Geert will treat us the whole retreat with all sorts of goodies. The dishes are exclusively vegetarian. After each shake a meal is provided. Friday evening  after the shake the first meal is served, but after the last shake on Sunday there is no meal anymore. All day tea, water, fruit and cookies are available. Special diets are possible on request (Please let us know in time !)
