Himalayan Yoga and Meditation Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, had their annual silence retreat 27 – 20 October 2016 and wrote, “ Thanks to all who participated in the Silence Retreat this weekend at the Redemptorist Retreat Center in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. The setting offered the solitude and quiet that afforded a deep descent into the cave of the heart. Jim Nelson gently guided us through the subtle practices of the Himalayan Tradition so that we felt supported by the lineage.”
