About Silent Retreat

Imagine if you could get away and have some absolute peace and quiet to yourself?
Beautiful right? Even just a few days in silence, away from it all and being in a natural setting away from the city, work, stress, and responsibilities can make a big difference. Your time is now!

MUCH NEEDED QUIET TIME

Do you know what it feels like to be quiet and have inner peace? Maybe it has been awhile? When was the last time you were away from life’s distractions and were able to be by yourself? You live in a world that is constantly changing, a lot of things going on: to-do lists, work, children’s school and activities, birthday parties, people to answer too, and you feel like you wish you could just be alone. You want space, peace and quiet.

COULD THIS BE HOW YOU’RE FEELING? … UH-OH!

You simply have a lot going on. You have a lot of responsibilities. You have stress on your shoulders. You want alone time, but there is no way to get it at your home – it’s too busy. Or maybe you’ve tried to be alone at a local park or beach, but it is not cutting it. You feel like you just want even one day in silence to collect your thoughts. You get easily frustrated because you feel disconnected from yourself and purpose. Maybe everyone is nagging you and you just want to hold up a “back off” sign. You desperately want your space. You’ve gone through something major, like a breakup, divorce or death and need sometime to process and heal.

YOU DESERVE PEACE AND QUIET!

You know that if you don’t find sometime to yourself, you’ll feel more lost. You might feel without taking the time out for you, you might blow up soon or have a nervous breakdown. You’re close to “losing” it and just need to get away. Maybe it’s time for a silent retreat so you can just break free from everything and everyone, and be in solitude, peace and quiet. With the hustle and bustle of the world, you need to schedule a day or two off. Just do it. You deserve it.

WHAT IS SILENCE?

Silence is the state of the soul. When you are silent from identifying with your thoughts, mind, emotions and even your body, in deep silence you can be in-tune with your soul. Despite the outer “sounds of the world” also known as distractions, there are also distractions within you in different forms such as, negative thoughts, stress, anxiety, feelings that overwhelm you, emotions that have not been dealt with, feeling haunted by past mistakes, failures, etc. and they keep you from knowing and connecting to your true self. Silence gives you the opportunity to be in an introspective state, to go beyond the inner and outer distractions, and simply be in-tune with your soul. When your inner and outer world are silent, you feel true peace and freedom.

FAQ

Yes, we do offer private consultations in 30 minute and 1 hour sessions on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can request your private consultation at the time of registration or during your program. To learn more about the private consultation, click here.

Yes, you can water or juice fast during your silent retreat if you select Half-Private or Full-Private accommodations. When you register just select the fast as an add-on.

It’s normal to make accidental sounds and even say a word. The practice is to help you become more aware. If you make a mistake, become aware right away and let it go. There’s no need to judge or criticize yourself. Get back into your silence.

You can write on a piece of paper any comments or questions that you have.

The silent retreat is not rigid and is flexible and unstructured. This means you are not forced to be in silence when you do not feel like it. Practicing silence ultimately means to be silent from your emotions and thoughts, because these are things that bother you during the day. By not speaking you also save tremendous energy, create an inner space for deep thought and much more. Therefore, if you feel like writing or reading, you can. However, we highly suggest not texting or using your cellphone during this precious time.

You can practice silence for as long as you would like. There is no minimum or maximum. We always suggest following your heart, and how your body and mind feel. You can schedule your retreat for one day or as many days as you would like to.

Absolutely! You can be in silence while you take any of our programs. You can even juice or water fast while in silence. Because our silent program is not rigid, you can speak/ask questions during class and then return to your silence once your class is over.

There are many things to do while you are in silence. You are welcome to listen to or participate in muraqba, which is held twice daily. Because they are divine sounds, it’s not considered that you’re breaking silence if you want to join. Or, you can even sign up for a workshop and take classes while in silence. If you want to disconnect completely, you’re very welcome to spend your time writing, walking, being creative, practicing awareness, enjoying the moment and just “being.”
