About the Silent Retreat
Listen to silence; it has so much to say
Due to the busy nature of modern life, we are often surrounded by noise and activity in the outside world. Often as intrusive can be the noise within – the constant stream of thoughts and inner dialogue.
The practice of silence creates the opportunity for the busyness of the mind and emotions to quieten. It allows us to connect with a deeper stillness that underlies all the surface activity. We come to rest in this stillness, allowing a revitalising and refreshing of our energies.
As well as accessing this deep inner nourishment, the practice of silence opens us up to a deepening of our self-understanding, the possibility of insight and the realisation of more fundamental levels of our Being. This silence is itself the source of inspiration and creativity. By becoming more aware of this stillness we open to the promptings of the heart and intuition.More info

More About the Silent Retreat
Each day will begin with a guided yoga class followed by the collective practice of chanting and meditation. During the meditation we will explore a theme for you to revisit and explore during the day.
There will be times through the day when we gather to sit in stillness together for 45 minutes. In addition, each afternoon there will be a 2 hour guided session incorporating some asana practice, a yoga nidra (meditative relaxation), and related meditation/ pranayama practices. There will also be periodic satsang (question and answer), the opportunity for 1:1 guidance/sharing with one of the teachers, and the daily practice of karma yoga (selfless service).Further details
