What is a Temple Retreat?
A Temple Retreat is an intense weekend event. It is time away from the everyday world taking you into your Inner World, to explore it, enjoy it, recharge it and heal it when necessary. Temple Retreats are designed and headed by Ina Cüsters.
During Temple Retreats one practices mental exercises like meditation, prayer, magical storytelling, ritual and mystery play. These help you to
- Become aware of important inner parts of your being
- Reconnect you with the core of your Self and your purpose in life
- Become aware what dreams you want to realise
- Empower and heal your Inner World.
This allows you to experience what your life revolves around based on what is within you, while the Transpersonal practice helps to actually manifest your dearest desires.
Ina Cüsters-van Bergen calls upon the potential for positive change present in everyone. Through her unconventional teaching methods she invites you to step out of your comfort zone, and to connect to the Matrix of Health that is anchored in all of us. This carries you to the guiding powers of your purpose in life.
Mysticism and mythology, a magical combination
Transpersonal trainings and retreats are, aside from intense, meaningful and engrossing, also very fun. Because of old mythical stories an inner dialogue will start within you, between you and the most spiritual part of your, called the Inner Teacher.
Through a unique combination of mental exercises, arts & crafts and mythical stories, your imagination will be energised and your ability to dream jump-started.
The exercises open your mystical awareness into progressively higher spiritual realities, help you become an emissary to these rich Inner Worlds, sow the seeds of what you’ve learned in the world. Because of the specific nature of the exercises these dreams become reality.
From I-magi-nation to manifestation
I-magi-nation is different from fantasy. Imagination is the trained art of seeing so clearly what you truly want to be or achieve, that it will manifest in your life. This is true magic.

Ina Cüsters .. with a concentrated focus and a kind yet powerful spirit she guides us. Inspiring, wise, and an anchor to us while we travel up there between the stars. I think she has a special hot-line to our friends up there. It was perfect … I truly learnt and I grew, and touched the Divine. I can still taste that sweet taste in my mouth, and feel the silken soft energy around me. I got into my car wanting to repeat the experience as soon as possible.
What is the structure of a Temple Retreat?
Every Temple Retreat follows a mythological theme. The temple space is set up as a stage for a classical mythological drama, for instance the Death of Osiris, or the Appearance of the Grail. Every participant will be assigned to a role in the storyline.
A retreat starts with the explanation of the Ritual Drama and the roles of the participants during the retreat. Everyone gets a workshop book which is the script for the ongoing rituals. There are parts for experienced people and parts for newbies.
During the Temple Retreat the story line unfolds by the ongoing Mystery Play. Transpersonal Meditations are embedded in the rituals. During the breaks the atmosphere is kept upright, this causes an intense magical atmosphere that intensifies during the Temple Retreat.
What if I have never participated in such an event?
This is not a problem at all. Temple Retreats are the ideal opportunity for newcomers to experience the beauty, power and mystery of Transpersonal Magic, supported by experienced practitioners.
