About The Event
The noble art of silence is a powerful tool to unlock the highest potential of human life and there is no greater gift to give yourself than spending time in silence and deep reflection to open the doors to your life’s purpose.
By means of Silence, Meditation, gentle Yoga, Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation body scan meditation), Earthing, Reiki (Energy Healing), Kirtan (Chanting Sacred Mantra's) & Mindfulness in naturesque surrounds, allows you to find the answers to life’s deepest questions from within and helps reveal greater states of clarity, well-being and inner peace. Together, they purify the mind and opens the heart so that you may live with greater wisdom and compassion in each moment of your life. The inner transformation that occurs when you simply allow yourself to completely let go and relax into your natural state is truly incomparable and liberating. You become better able to evaluate different ideas and make better decisions. Creativity, intuition and clarity come to you with ease and congruence. It helps to regulate your emotions with conscious awareness.
Our intimate group silent retreats (max 10 attendees) will be a safe space and catalyst for change. Change happens from within and starts with silence and introspection. The benefits reaped from such practices extend to all facets of life: our relationships, confidence, wisdom, compassion, sincerity, love, respect, creativity and insight. All of these attributes arise from a source within, and the only way to access it is to remain silent, listen and witness inside as your highest potential reveals itself.
Is our Silent Retreats for you?

- You are what you think and your external world is a manifestation of of your thoughts. Do you crave change in you or any part of your life?
