THE WAY OF REST – A Weekend of Exploration
This weekend consists of 2 full day meetings on Saturday and Sunday that complement each other.
The meetings may also be attended separately without any problem. However, attending both days is highly recommended for those who wish for a deeper and more profound experience of resting in Presence in a safe and welcoming space, with like-minded people.
We look forward to seeing you in Zeist, The Netherlands!
Stop trying to heal yourself, fix yourself, even awaken yourself. Let go of letting go. Instead, bow deeply to yourself as you actually are. Be here. Honour the present scene in the movie of your life. Your pain, your sorrow, your doubts, your deepest longings, your fearful thoughts, are not mistakes, and they aren’t asking to be healed. They are asking to be held. Here, now, lightly, in the loving arms of present awareness… – Jeff Foster
Jeff shares a radically inclusive form of mindfulness – that of the present moment as a raw and wild teacher, sometimes painful but ultimately trustable. Using language like paint on a canvas, with both light-heartedness and precision, he shares from the depths of his experience, stripping away every defence of the mind, leaving us with nothing but the simplicity and wonder of our very own presence.
Through talks, intimate dialogues, guided meditations and restful silences, Jeff invites us to stop trying to heal, awaken or fix ourselves, and instead to slow down, breathe, and sink into a field of radical permission. This down-to-earth invitation leaves us with nowhere to go and nothing to become. It is disorienting but ultimately exhilarating, to be so deeply in the Now … and discover that we actually are the Now! What a joy and relief to realize that our true home, our deepest sense of belonging, has been right here all along, embedded in each and every precious moment, the only moment we have.
If you are tired of the seeking, exhausted from the struggle, and longing for life’s sweet embrace … then welcome to The Way Of Rest!

“Great talk yesterday. Thanks for really driving home the point that there is nothing to wait for, and that freedom is in every experience – it just may look different from what we may expect. Freedom in life, not freedom from experiencing the ‘bad/scary’ parts of it.”
“I had been secretly searching for the ‘perfect moment’ all of my life, the moment I would be happy for good, thinking that something or somebody could give me a magic tool which allow me not to suffer for the rest of my life. After attending Jeff’s meetings and reading his books, I allowed myself the freedom to experience any sort of situation and emotions without having to feel guilty about it or feeling I am going backwards and beating my self up for it. Today being happy, crying or feeling like a failure are all opportunities for me to celbrate this life with open arms…”
