What is Spirituality?

Literally ‘spirituality’ is derived from Latin: ‘spiritus’ means breath (of life).

Spirituality is the investigation of what ‘makes Life breathe’. In other words, spirituality is basic research into the meaning of (your) life. But above all spirituality is a ‘doing’ word: only thinking about spirituality is insufficient.

Tension, stress, not being comfortable in your own skin, irritation and frustration are all caused by things, situations or patterns that may not be appropriate for you (anymore). Together we will find a way how you can change those patterns.

Our Netherlands based Retreats called Spirituality & Self Inquiry in Practice teaches you to act on the wisdom arising from the theory of Enlightenment.

It shows you what it is like to put spirituality into practice. That means that you will carry through the content of the course into your daily life: just consider how often you do something (or don’t do), what you really like to do, or don’t want to do anymore.

Our Retreats Spirituality & Self Inquiry in Practice teach you how to experience a permanent undercurrent of peace and joy in your life.

Sincerely, Johan de Jong

Hi my name is Johan de Jong and I am the founder of the non profit organization called the Onbestempeld Foundation. Onbestempeld is dutch and means: not-labeled. In Januari 2013 I had an experience that is described in many enlightenment literature: seeing through what Life is about. And how to be free from fears, confinement and anxiety. Since then I devoted myself to guide others to the same insights and experience. JohandeJong_DutchRetreats
