*WHY IS THIS A SILENT RETREAT? A silent retreat means that everyone participating observes mauna, noble silence (apart from the teacher/ the guide). This means no casual chats and conversations, but also no use of phone or any devices during the day. The practice of silence allows the the mind to quieten down significantly, it is a very unique, deeply purifying and enlightening experience. It creates space for a deep insight and a proper reset, even in the short span of one day.
*WHY MEDITATION? Meditation is known for thousands of years as one of the most powerful practices, within and outside of spiritual context. It is good not only for creating a state of calm or relaxation, but also is the best known path to self-knowledge and self-love. When we retreat into silence beyond mind, there is an unmistakable feeling of being back home, in the heart of being, a sense of connection and purpose.
*WHY "A DAY IN THE HEART"? The Heart/ Hridaya in Sanskrit is a synonym of awareness or presence. According to the great yogis and the non-dual philosophy, the Heart is a place to centre in our meditations, but also an organ of knowledge and the seat of our true Self. When the mind is quiet and we centre within, the Heart can awaken - bringing a sense of being back home, back to what truly matters, back to our Self.
As Rumi said, "Close your eyes, fall in love, stay there"
