Aim of the Silence Retreat

This Intensive Silence Retreat will allow participants to find a deep silence and obtain deeper insights of one-self and the healing power of silence (in action, speech and thought). In addition, participants will be inspired by the presentations and workshops on specific methods for relaxation (hatha yoga, yoga nidra) and philosophies and practices of meditation for better understanding of the process of silence.

Dr. Stephen Parker (Stoma)

Immerging oneself in Silence provides a window through which one witnesses with deepening awareness the nature of one’s own mind.  Over several days, the subtlety of that awareness becomes deeper and deeper.
