Benefit from the silence,

Play the miracle of the moment

Silently float

Like a cloud above the landscape

Travel to the heart of your clown

Rediscover what "playing" means.


The workshop takes place in the beautiful monastery of the Marist Brothers Community of Bua. Nestled just below the Ardennes, in a beautiful region of Belgium, near the Luxembourg and French borders. Brothers still reside at the monastery and ensure a warm welcome.


This workshop is a blend of play, clowning, meditation, and dance, within the monastery, but we will also take wonderful clownish walks in the beautiful surrounding nature. We start early in the morning and work according to the group's energy. The day begins and ends with meditation for those who wish.


On the evening of January 3rd and early morning of January 4th, we will have a meditation (shamanic or other) together with both groups (NL & FR). These moments take place after dinner and before breakfast. Participants from the Dutch-speaking group are then free to take a beautiful walk at their own pace before leaving (or staying). I recommend that participants from the French-speaking group arrive earlier on January 3rd to start the retreat with a beautiful walk of their own initiative.
