4 Day Silent Meditation Retreat
A profound, beyond-mind understanding of Stillness is our birthright.
In this retreat we recognise Stillness as a platform for resting, awareness, pure being, life, love and freedom.
We leave behind the programming and the mundane, and embrace the beauty of our experience, settling into simplicity. Although subtle, there does exist a philosophy and practice in the direction of stillness. This is an entirely new kind of effort – we explore the profound shift from compulsive doing, into effortless being.
Remarkable insights and deep transformations naturally result after longer and repeated retreats.
Balance & Harmony
The 4 days is meant to replicate a solitary cave retreat. Everyday we will enjoy beautiful yoga, meditation, relaxation and peace-ful exercises to return to the deepest sense of Self. There will be no contact with the outside world or even your colleagues within the setting. Expect a balancing and harmonising of our nervous system, sleep cycles, and a re-setting of the way we react to emotions, thoughts and circumstances.
Meditation is being mis-practiced by millions of seekers as a form of struggle, effort and contraction. In this space, we emphasis a delicate balance between effort and surrender. The sitting meditation practice is supported to make it as comfortable as possible. We use poetry, yoga, nature immersion, props, nourishing food, resting and on-going practice to reveal the gifts of meditation.

All accommodation and food are included. Delicious, healthy and hearty, home cooked vegetarian meals will be served 3 times a day. Morning Hatha, evening Yin practices, silent sitting meditations supported by discourses and training from modern and traditional yoga technologies. Space limited to 15 people.
