7-Day, All-Inclusive Retreat in The Netherlands

Infinity in Absolute Abundance

Realize the One Infinite Creator in Everything


Imagine a life that has become more than just a life. In fact, to be attached to ‘a life’ is to miss out on Life Itself in all its Splendor, Infinitude and Abundance!

The Baarlo, Netherlands retreat in July 2017 was such an incredibly successful and hard to describe experience (although Ivo did a good job!) that we decided to reserve the same venue for next year. We hope all who were there this year will attend again next year and introduce a friend to Bentinho's work in the meantime, so they can get up to speed and participate next year. This year there were 500 people. Next year we are aiming for 900-1100 adepts! 

Make sure you watch the video below. Lisa Galesloot did an amazing job capturing some of the magic of the Baarlo retreat!


Infinity is All That Is

Infinity is All That Is, as well as being beyond or unaffected by the happenings inside of All That Is. There is nothing that exists outside of the One Infinite Creator. The One is All and All is The One. 

Since even the Illusion of Creation—though ultimately an unreal projection—IS the One Infinite Creator, we can realize the One Infinite Creator not only ‘within’ but also in ‘everything we do and experience’. This Self Realization retreat is about realizing God both through internal practices as well as practices that seem to involve the projection we call 'the world.'

This retreat will focus on different ways to directly realize more of the One Infinite Creator as being who YOU actually are. We will explore ‘inner ways’—where we withdraw from our perception of the world so we can penetrate more deeply into the truth, without as many distractions or temptations—as well as several potent ‘outer ways’.

We’ll blend our inner realizations into practices to realize Oneness with our dreamscape environment. In doing so, we will know more deeply the bliss and inseparability of the One Infinite Creator as we interact with the Creator’s Dream—the Grand Illusion of Creation.
Infinite Bliss is everywhere, all the time, as all appearances, while also transcending all appearances. There are no limitations—only those you dream into creation. Learn to dream with the One Infinite Creator in mind, instead of with your personal lack beliefs in mind. 
When you are identified with the One Infinite Creator, Everything is possible. There is only One, and this Infinite One is here in Absolute Abundance.

For this retreat, we will be at the same venue where we held the incredible 2017 Netherlands Retreat (check it out if you have not already)! Bentinho has stated that this was his favorite retreat in almost every way, and he is looking forward to gathering again with you all next year.
