Weeklong Silent Retreat

Uncover Your True Self

We have a side of us that’s full of unshakable confidence, joy and peace. The silence retreat helps us uncover this "enlightened side" and make it a part of our daily lives. This course, open to those new to Art of Living, is a combination of the Happiness Program and the Silence Retreat. This true vacation starts with learning the Sudarshan Kriya breathing technique of the flagship Art of Living Happiness Program and then continuing with silent observation and advanced meditations of the Art of Silence Retreat. Treat yourself to a life changing blissful experience.

Deep meditations led in-person by Sri Sri ...

A world-renowned spiritual teacher, ambassador of peace and thought-leader on meditation, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has impacted the lives of millions world-wide through his profound techniques and wisdom. Take advantage of this rare opportunity at the Art of Living Retreat Center and in Sri Sri’s peaceful presence to get away from it all and rest in your true nature.

The silent retreat will be hosted at Art of Living’s very own retreat Center in Boone North Carolina.
