|Reserve this weekend in your calendars!|
|Despite the uncertainty of this time during crisis with regard to measures against the corona virus, the Intergroep Nederland [IG #598] for Adult Children of Alcoholics/Dysfunctional Families is moving forward and has booked the venue for our next weekend retreat and we want to give you early notice so that you can reserve the weekend in your calendars now.|
The location will be the beautiful historical monument of Eikhold Natuurvriendenhuis in South Limbourg and is scheduled for the weekend of Friday afternoon the 30th of October through Sunday lunchtime the 1st of November 2020. Eikhold is a 15 minute walk from the center of Heerlen and equally close to the the beautiful Netherlands nature reserve of Brunssummerheide. As in past retreats, we plan to include meetings and meditations both indoors and outdoors plus workshops, fun activities (for our Inner Children) and meals together (two each of breakfast, lunch and dinner).
Stay tuned to your inbox for information about costs, meals and registering online. Please send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and do not contact Eikhold Natuurvriendenhuis directly.
