7 Day Silent Meditation Retreat
2 -10 February 2019
A deeper connection inward to Self and outward to the Universe is not only the most magical gift we could give to ourself, but its why we’re here. ~ Ava
Dive into existence, transform your entire life.
Join us on this journey to India, absorb into the sacredness of the land and culture, and meditate in one of the most potent formats available to us: directly on the Self.
A profound, beyond-mind understanding of Stillness is our birthright.
Joy, embodiment, flourishing, and a deep exploration of the Consciousness of Oneness, available now.
Meditation has been misdirected by millions of seekers as a form of struggle, effort and contraction. In this retreat we have the time, space and tools to recognise Stillness as the ground of our Being. We use the platform of yoga, movement, meditation and philosophy 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. We find 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.
What to Expect
Our 7 day retreats skilfully incorporate yoga, meditation and tantric philosophy into a retreat that will leave you refreshed, inspired and clear.
We spend the first three days focusing on rest, restoration and balance.
On day three to six, we emphasise depth, understanding of the Truth & Reality.
On day seven we integrate and flood our system with compassion & gratitude and prepare to integrate back into our relationships with love and clarity in our heart.
Balance & Harmony
The 7 days is meant to replicate a solitary cave retreat. Everyday we will enjoy beautiful yoga, meditation, relaxation and the absorption into nature and stillness 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.
- Delicious, healthy and hearty, Ayurvedic meals will be served 3 times a day.
- Morning hatha & evening yin yoga practices
- Silent sitting meditations supported by discourses and training from modern and traditional yoga technologies.
- Shuttle from Chennai airport to the accommodation
