Do you wonder what the heck you do on a silent retreat – isn’t it boring? Isn’t it difficult to be quiet? Yes, and no.
With the silence comes clarity of thought, concentration and insights into motivation and attention. Without distractions of communication, electronics and media you can focus on your own thoughts, become more self-aware and grow a little more, developing equanimity with all the background noise of the environment, other people, physical sensations.
We will spend time with the following activities:
-Meditate – sitting, walking, eating & working are all forms of meditation
-Personal practice of movement such as yoga which is done in silence and without instruction
-Read spiritually uplifting books
-Enjoy natural beauty – walk from the Centre through forest trails
-Connect with others in a deeper way – through shared experience without talking about it
-Be nurtured by friendly staff and supportive teacher
-Rest, recuperate and have time for reflection & napping
-Enjoy delicious, organic vegetarian meals to nourish your body
