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!

“Thank you for a wonderful day… I loved every minute of it! … Love, and lightness, that’s what I felt! The weight has fallen away, the seriousness of spirituality is gone… Surrender is the recognition that it is already allowed to give up, to let go, to not handle pain and not handle life, to not to have to cling … You were the “personification” of that surrender, of that allowance!” – A.B.
“Such a lovely, life-enhancing day. This was my first experience of Jeff on a stage. He was a wonderful mix of wise, funny, compassionate and surprising. A truly heart-warming presence. A lovely audience too, who posed often challenging questions that Jeff answered with gentle and inspiring honesty. I’d recommend such an event to anyone drawn to non-duality and the spiritual path, or those simply curious about the true nature of love and reality. Thanks to Jeff and his team for a perfect day” – J.W.
