Meditation & Nature Experience:
In the Summer we will offer specialized meditation & nature experiences to Ouderkerk a/d Amstel. On the Amstel Carla will guide you into several relaxing meditations, that will be on the boat. These meditations are designed to tune yourself into, not only yourself, but all the beautiful nature surrounding you.
It’s a unique and playful experience to meditate on a boat. I’d like to let you experience the world around you in another way. Usually we do meditation inside. But you can meditate anywhere!
