A typical day

House of the beloved is a space that invites you to fully express, where the usual pressures of time, money, beauty, happiness, health and normalcy are absent. Where the craziness of your calling can come to full fruition, with the single limitation that you make it possible for the others too.

We have created a tentative daily rhythm including meditation, study, work, experimentation, cooking, eating, karma yoga, body practices, music and dance (see below). Practices and schedules tend to work for some people some of the times for some things. You can choose what is needed for you, though we propose to minimally join the morning and evening ceremony, so you stay in tune with the community. If you don’t join the practices, we expect you not to interfere with others that do, and just be in your room in silence.

The House of the beloved is located in Brussels on an urban mountain top. We welcome existential researchers that want to experiment with different ways of being human and participate in experimental practices. Send us an email if you are interested in a visit, a retreat, or just to stay here for a while. We look forward to hearing from you.
