Join us on magical Amantani, Lake Titicaca for a unique 5-day immersion experience to access your true essential nature and the supreme, divine Self.
The atmosphere will be a loving and compassionate space to support you in diving deep into Self. Using the Hridaya Meditation technique, we will spend a full 3 days in silence, getting in touch with deep inner stillness and absorbing the breathtaking atmosphere of the Island itself. This includes a silent hike to two ancient sacred sites, Pachamama and Pachatata, as well as daily Yoga classes. We will also be having a fire offering ceremony.
Hridaya Hatha Yoga is Mindful/Meditative form of practicing Hatha Yoga. This practice allows to release tension and trauma from the body and let go of worries or psychological pressures that arise from everyday life. It teaches daily life awareness, life of Stillness surrender and joy. This is achieved by holding postures for some time getting a more intimate inner connection with the physical body its energies increasing will power and maintaining awareness/ presence. This practice is an invitation to connect with the Heart and reveal our true nature. Both beginners and those with more experience are welcome to join.
Hridaya meditation is benificial for all, wherever you are in your practice, from absolute beginner to advanced meditator. This retreat was specifically created to guide people in coming to an intimate understanding of what Self-Inquiry meditation is, in order to experience the inner transformation that it offers.
The creators of this retreat, Jennifer Flaherty and Sammy Mavorah, walked their own spiritual paths for years before meeting. They experienced the powerful energy of Lake Titica together, and immediately felt called to share it with others. Their mission is to provide a space for you to step in deeper into yourself, with support from people who have been on this path, allowing you the space to align with your own deep personal truth.
Lake Titicaca is an island that gives you no choice but to seperate yourself from technology and distractions. There you will have the space to look at and to let go of anything that no longer serves you.
At Sacred Silence Retreat, this is what we are excited to offer you!
The entire retreat is powered with solar energy and we serve a vegetarian menu. We also use all local and organic products in order to support the local residents who are so open and welcoming to us.
About our Teacher and Guide:
In 2013, Gosia Szostakiewicz took a major turn to free herself from preconceived ideas of what life should look like. She took a career break from a successful corporate life to find her true passion and a new recipe for life. The break turned into years of exploration of deep desires and true callings of the heart. In 2014, she stumbled upon Hridaya Yoga school in Mexico. In a paradise setting she explored teachings of non-duality. She stayed in Mexico to teach Intensive Yoga Retreats and Co-ordinate Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreats. She continued the journey in the UK and Poland, and now in Peru, to share her love for life, passion for practice, to teach the Silent Meditation Retreat and continue to walk the path of the Heart and write about it on www.livefeelexplore.com
Hridaya meditation has been a blessing in her life, bringing very significant changes. Gosia feels very honoured and very excited to be able to offer the same opportunity, by sharing these beautiful teachings of the Heart, here in Peru ♥

Our intention for this retreat is to harness the power of the New Moon in Scorpio, on the 18th. Some of the major themes when working with the energy of this new moon are empowerment, change, crisis skills, self-mastery, sex/soulmates, financial partnerships, avoiding power struggles, learning to choose vitality, empowerment, and personal transformation over comfort. We ask everyone to prepare their intentions before arriving, knowing what they want to call in during the fire ceremony. Our intention is to hold a sacred space for each individual, from all corners of the globe, to allow you to awaken to your higher spiritual vibrational self, to free yourself of all the outside clutter and, most importantly, to open your heart to the infinite possibilities that you posess.
The facility is set on acres of land with local beach access and plenty of serene nature to enjoy. The meditation space is brand new with enormous windows overlooking the serene waters of Lake Titicaca. There is also a beautiful fire ceremony space on the grounds.
Our sleeping facility has been around for many years. It is very quaint and cozy, with shared solar powered showers and bathrooms.
Our vegeterian kitchen is run by our Peruvian Chef Jhons Melgarejo, who's backround is in retreat cooking and local cusine and who's love and joy comes out in the food he creates.
