OCTOBER 2022 will be our 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY in Belgium.

For ten years, GaySpiritFriends (Netherlands) and Spirit Journeys (United States) have created playful, soulful, and heart-opening communities for GBTQ-men in our International Gay Retreats, and now we’re ready to celebrate. We invite you for our 10-Year Anniversary.

Reconnect with old friends and make new ones as you share in the most powerful experiences from our former retreats, some wonderful new surprises, and a special opportunity to extend your retreat experience. For the first time, we are offering a weekend with workshops before the main retreat. We will focus on heart-opening exercises, growing our capacity for intimacy, and building skills for healthy, resilient relationships.

You can participate in just the weekend, just the week, or both!

The Intimate Connection Weekend is an inspiring weekend, designed to help you open your heart, grow your capacity for intimacy, and build healthy, resilient relationships.
It precedes the International Gay Retreat and can be booked separately or together. 

The International Gay Retreat is a whole week built around four themes: Exploring the gifts in your shadows, Celebrating your unique talents and gifts, Seeking a new vision and setting new intentions, Integrating and implementing all of these new insights when you go home again. 


We offer a variety of workshop experiences during both events and
a playful multidisciplinary approach, drawing from spirituality, psychology
and new discoveries in the field of personal development.
