The retreats take place in the quiet beauty of the Open Sky House. This house has been the home of the spiritual community around John David for 17 years. Everyone feels welcome in an energy field of silence, love and beauty.

The house itself is a lovingly renovated 17th century property. The location directly on the banks of the Rhine invites you to take beautiful walks during breaks or to cross over to the other side of the Rhine by ferry.

The idyllic inner courtyard with its large, old walnut tree, the soothing sound of the fountain and a chorus of singing birds offers a space to breathe deeply, relax and simply be. The many works of art in the house are a delight: paintings, sculptures and photographs created by artists from a space of inner stillness.

During the retreat, stillness and time with yourself is encouraged.
