About The Event
Go deep within your inner landscape during this 3 day silent meditation retreat. Experience the power of a strong container, group practice and an experienced teacher. Together we will practice meditation, deep relaxation and self-exploration while observing noble silence (mauna).
Providing the space you need to unwind, restore, and explore the opportunities brought by a sincere and committed practice. There will be daily practice of gentle Hridaya Hatha Yoga also.
This retreat is a great introduction to the practice of meditation for beginners and will enrich and refresh the practice of experienced meditators.
What is the meditation style?
This silent meditation retreat is inspired by the Hridaya Yoga format.
The few days dedicated to silence are a journey of self-exploration which starts in the heart and leads back to the heart.
The meditation sessions, presentation of different techniques and experienced guidance and supervision, will enable you to turn inwards and discover unknown depths of your being.
Free from dogma, the philosophy shared is based on the teachings of non-duality and the works and writings of sages and spiritual masters of all cultures and traditions. The retreats are fully dedicated to a direct experience of truth, in a way only silence can reveal.
