Silent Heart Meditation & Gentle Yoga Retreat with Manu

About us

This silent retreat offers a 3 or 6 day option. This unique offering is a wonderful opportunity to retreat with Manu Akshobhia, a very gifted teacher and facilitator. The popularity of his retreats brings him back to Shanti for the 9th consecutive season. Give yourself the gift of going within as well as time to soak in the beauty and wonderment of the nature that surrounds us here at Shanti. Manu will offer a truly inspiring silent meditation and yoga retreat. He will share simple but powerful tools to begin or help deepen your meditation practice. A regular meditation practice can help to navigate life with greater joy, lightness and ease. The retreat will also be infused with gentle and restorative energy yoga classes and yoga nidra. Come to Wolfe Island and savour the silence, serenity, and stillness.

Mauna (silence) is a very important part of this retreat. We will start after the evening talk on the first day and go until the end of the last session on either Sunday or Wednesday. A lot of energy and ego goesinto our speech, and to refrain from it is a great support for meditation and improving the process ofself-discovery. We keep silent during the retreat in order to quiet our mind and maintain a serene,peaceful environment for everyone. This can be difficult at times, but most people find it a powerful andwonderful experience. You will find that you begin to cherish this silence and will learn how to becomfortable with it. Training ourselves to walk, move, and perform daily activities quietly leads to a calmand graceful experience. Maintaining silence is a way of developing self-discipline and a deeper, more compassionate understanding for all things.

Miranda writes “Before the wonderful retreat at Shanti on Wolfe Island, I didn't realize myheart was locked "safely" behind the closed door named "fear.” Manu helped me realize Icould unlock that door and let myself be aware, living my life in knowing my true self,freedom, potential, love, bliss. I highly recommend Manu as you journey through meditationand self-discovery! He is a gentle, kind soul freely giving of his knowledge and light.”

Carolyn writes “It was a truly wonderful experience for me, and I am so happy that I wasable to stay for the 6 days. I found that Manu’s approach to both introduce and enhancemeditation practices for the retreat participants truly supported our collective energies. Ofcourse, the beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful food at Shanti also made the retreatunforgettable. As someone relatively new to meditation, I was also much encouraged by yourwords and feel more confident that "slowly, slowly," I will feel and understand more about how the mind works, helping me to go deeper in my own practice.”
