During my first Mediflow session, a whole new world opened up for me. I felt a connection with the entire group, without knowing anyone. I experienced openness, safety and warmth and I feel grateful for all the beautiful people I have met!

HOW MEDIFLOW CAME TO BE
It is the year 2021. Spring season has commenced and people are carefully stepping out of their isolated spaces after a winter in lockdown. The sun is out in Groningen, the Netherlands and people gather in the parks in search for joy, support, and each other. Connections are being made, common interests discussed, and ideas shared. A community is found.
What once started as a group chat for conscious people in Groningen with a shared interest in meditation, soon grew into a large community of like-minded people that regularly came together to meditate in an anti-squat building in the city, occupied by students and expats.
From people showing up spontaneously, to sign up lists that fill up within 2 minutes. From simple guided meditations to breathwork sessions, embodiment practices, and professional workshops.
Mediflow sessions are not what they once were. And that is okay! Together with its facilitators and organizers, Mediflow has grown into a more inclusive and professional organization.
Offering both regular evening sessions and (multiple) day retreats, Mediflow provides a safe space for those in and around Groningen to come together to consciously connect with themselves and others on an honest, deep and intimate level.
Whether you have never meditated before, or it is already a part of your daily ritual, Mediflow is for all of those who feel the call to come together to practice and experience meditation, breathwork, embodiment, mindfulness, and more.
Ellen, Jerry and Marije welcome you with open arms & an open heart and hope to see you soon!
