Why take 3-4 days out of your busy life for a meditation retreat?

These few days make the rest of your year more alive, productive and full of energy. When you emerge, you feel recharged and refreshed, ready to take on all your responsibilities with greater focus and joy.

Grateful to all the people and things which enable me to take time out like this to care for myself so that I can be the best, most stress-free and happy version of myself possible … and in that be a better mamma. Truly blessed and most humbled.

Create Big Shifts in Your Life

The Silence Retreat can help you drop limiting beliefs, regrets and worries, and tap into a bigger vision for yourself. You come back to your life more grounded, more centered, more wise. You find a joy that is unshaken by outer circumstances. And the more often you do this retreat, the more this strength and freedom builds inside of you.

A Structured Retreat

While other retreats could leave you a little to your own devices to find some silence amidst a quiet atmosphere, many people find it challenging to know how to quiet their own minds. The Art of Silence Retreat provides optimal conditions for sinking deep within and breaking free from our mental chatter. Your whole day is carefully guided and crafted to give you as relaxing and transformative an experience possible. It’s no wonder that many course participants refer to it as the ideal vacation for body, mind, and spirit.

“I have been to other silent retreats at places like Kripalu, but basically, we were just silent and did our own thing, with optional classes we could attend throughout the day. But what we did here is so much more. What you guys offer is a full curriculum—the guided meditations, the service, the wisdom, the music—all of this took me on a journey far deeper than I thought possible.”

Silent Retreat participant

“Meditation is the journey from movement to stillness, sound to silence. “

-Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Deep Meditations

A set of guided meditations called “Hollow and Empty” created by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar are a central part of the retreat. These meditations are geared towards drawing out the deepest layers of stress and tension from our nervous system.

Silence

Silence is more than not speaking, it is a way to renew ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually. Even just a few minutes of true silence gives a rest far deeper than sleep, and possibly anything else you’ve experienced in life.

Mudras and Advanced Pranayama

The course builds upon the breathing exercises taught during the Happiness Program and teaches a series of Mudras – a subtle technique to balance the mind and emotions.

Music

Often, silence is associated with sadness. But in the retreat, silence is a celebration. After a full day of yoga, meditation and processes, the evenings are spent celebrating the inner spirit through soulful music and sacred chants.

More Elements

  • Yoga- Unite the body and mind with a morning yoga session to start each day.
