WHAT TO EXPECT

Mindful Silence Retreat Program

Connect to yourself with Love & Compassion

A  few days in which you can experience what it is like to be really quiet.

To slow down and unwind from the hustle and bustle of your life. Without social obligations, expectations, the need to react, without a telephone, book, or news items. A few days away from your normal daily distractions.

Without these distractions, the pace of your thoughts will slow down. And then wait and see what remains. Experience silence and what then rises to the surface is what is essential to you.

The main guideline in this retreat are the mindful meditations. There will be every other day personal meetings with the Mindfulness teacher to review how things are going and what you are facing. To further support you in your process of slowing down and silencing we offer a program of inspiring classes like Mild Yoga with movement and Yin Yoga poses and Chineng Qigong. It is also possible to walk around the garden and surroundings. 

Being able to get rid of your protection mechanisms during the retreat will make you more receptive. This can create a connection to your inner voice. A beautiful process in the safe environment of the group and team.

Our Silent retreats are suitable for beginners as
well as for the experienced lovers of silence.

Program

At the start of the retreat there will be a nice introduction into the Mindful meditation.
