These few days make the rest of your year more alive, productive and full of energy. When you emerge, you feel recharged and refreshed, ready to take on all your responsibilities with greater focus and joy.

 

Create big shifts in your life

The Silence Retreat can help you drop limiting beliefs, regrets and worries, and tap into a bigger vision for yourself. You come back to your life more grounded and centered as well as wiser. You find a joy that is unshaken by outer circumstances. Also, the more often you participate in this retreat, the more of this strength and freedom builds inside of you.

A structured retreat

The Art of Silence Retreat provides optimal conditions for sinking deep within and breaking free from our mental chatter. Your whole day is carefully guided and crafted to give you as relaxing and transformative an experience possible. It’s no wonder that many program participants refer to it as the ideal vacation for the body, mind, and spirit.

“I have been to other silent retreats at places like Kripalu, but basically, we were just silent and did our own thing, with optional classes we could attend throughout the day. But what we did here is so much more. What you guys offer is a full curriculum—the guided meditations, the service, the wisdom, the music—all of this took me on a journey far deeper than I thought possible.”

Main Elements of the Retreat

"Meditation is the journey from movement to
stillness sound to silence."

- Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Deep meditations

A set of guided meditations called “Hollow and Empty” created by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar are a central part of the retreat. These meditations are geared towards drawing out the deepest layers of stress and tension from our nervous system.

Silence

Silence is more than not speaking, it is a way to renew ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually. Even just a few minutes of true silence gives a rest far deeper than sleep, and possibly anything else you’ve experienced in life.

Mudras & advanced pranayama

The program builds upon the breathing exercises taught during the Happiness Program and teaches a series of mudras – a subtle technique to balance the mind and emotions.

Music

Often, silence is associated with sadness. But in the retreat, silence is a celebration. After a full day of yoga, meditation and processes, the evenings are spent celebrating the inner spirit through soulful music and sacred chants.

“There is a big change (in me) from before and after going to the Silence Retreat. I feel I have become a new person, so I say that the part-2 program (Art of Silence retreat) has been the starting point of my new self. The new me is very comfortable. I feel blessed and very happy. I feel very lucky to come across a program like this. Thank you for giving such an opportunity.”

- Shoko

“Every moment doing the advance program was a new experience for me: the meditation and the silence.”
