European Gathering – 5 Days Residential

Now open for registration 

Welcome to the European Headless Gathering in Denekamp, The Netherlands,

with Richard Lang, and Karin Visser and Friends.

from Wednesday 2nd to Sunday 6th October 2024.


At The Sisters of Denekamp Monastery,

Gravenallee 30, 7591 PE Denekamp,

The Netherlands.

The European Gathering is a five day residential group to deeply explore the Headless experiments, as well as ways to apply them in our daily lives and in our relationships with others. But above all it is a chance to enjoy the company of other Headless friends and inspire each other with our own unique insights.


We’ll meet on Wednesday in time for a light meal served at 5.30 pm, but you can check in earlier in the afternoon from 3 pm on. We’ll close the gathering after lunch at 12.30 pm on Sunday.

The group size will be max 30 people. The program is varied and evolves around the Seeing experiments. There will also be opportunity for sharing our experiences in large and small groups, some talks, quiet time, and free time during the afternoons and evenings to socialize together. The monastery has a beautiful cloister garden, and there are opportunities for walks in the surroundings, or borrowing one of the bikes offered by the Sisters. 

On Saturday evening we will have Open Space for music, storytelling, or short performances.

Our groups are relaxed and informal. Please bring comfortable clothes for inside and outside.

Costs per person are inclusive of accommodation, food, coffee and tea in the breaks, and all group sessions during the four days. The rooms are single bedrooms. Double rooms are available. Diets are possible such as vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and lactose free (please fill in your requirements on the registration form).

Denekamp is located in the East of The Netherlands, five kilometers from the German boarder. Map here
