About The Event

Retreat into YourSelf,

Retreat into Silence beyond mind,

into the Heart.

An unforgettable journey!

3 days of guided silent meditation, deep relaxation and self-exploration during the long weekend of Queen's birthday in beautiful Strathean retreat, Otaki

Allow yourself the treat to just Be and rejoice in the beauty and wisdom of the Heart while learning about Hridaya meditation and how to establish your own meditation practice.

Creating a quiet and supportive environment, a group retreat is the best way to immerse yourself into Self Enquiry and silence and reap the benefits of it.

While enjoying simplicity and silence, we will learn techniques from different meditation and mystic traditions and will have the time to practice them. There will also be inspirational talks sharing the vision of Non-duality (Advaita Vedanta) and a daily Hridaya hatha yoga practice to relax our body and harmonise its energies.

A retreat suitable both for beginners and for people with an established practice - the Hridaya approach makes it exciting and easy to fall in love with awareness

Hridaya (meaning the Spiritual Heart) is a spiritual path based on the philosophy of non-duality, advaita, and the teachings of the great Indian sage Ramana Maharishi. Nevertheless, it combines techniques from all authentic spiritual traditions (Buddhism, Sufism, Yoga, Christian mysticism) in order to provide a broad and comprehensive view in the search for the Self. A search that starts and ends in the Heart.

Hridaya meditation has proven benefits on all levels of our being - physical health, mental clarity, emotional release, deeper self-knowledge, life, lived in alignment with our innermost truth and an open heart.

“An awakened heart leads to an entirely new way of looking at life, yourself, others, society and ultimately at the whole created order. What that means in practical and everyday terms will differ for each of us.”- Peter Spink
