Reviews

Everything about this experience, from Marije to the Won Dharma Center was absolute perfection. The Center is in such a lovely, peaceful place. Great walking trails. The food is quite delicious. The energy that surrounds you here puts you at ease immediately. Marije is so knowledgeable and gracious, with a calming presence she creates a retreat that is unforgettable. I have used many of the things I learned there since. Thank you Marije and Won Dharma for taking such good care of me:)
The yin yoga teacher training with Marije was an outstanding experience as it was both a very personal as well as insightful journey. Marije is very knowledgable and I truly enjoyed all the science-backed background information she offered as well as her skillful teaching which allowed us to teach with confidence by the end of this training.
A quiet, introspective weekend in a beautiful locale. Program was well organized and I came away with a better understanding of myself through meditation techniques and gentle movement. Accommodations were modern, clean, and spartan. Food was delicious. I would highly recommend this retreat weekend.
Marije is a very gifted teacher and this retreat was a profound experience in a short amount of time. Her scaffolding of silent meditations, yin yoga and walking meditations, along with a few "exercises" to increase our capacities to listen authentically to others, culminated in a gratitude exercise that was intense, personal, and deeply moving. Can not say enough positive things about having a chance to experience Marije as a teacher of yin, of meditation, and of becoming still and connecting both within and to others. Won Dharma is a sweet place, austere and modern, supporting contemplation. The food was simple but well prepared and the atmosphere supported us.
