About This Event

Enlightening Meditation Silence Retreat. 

Recharge and regain your inner strength through the power of silence! Relax deeply in the only Enlighten Life Silence-Retreat in Europe.

Enjoy a greater stress tolerance, new emotional balance and enduring serenity.
In the Enlighten Life Silence-Retreat with Madhukar in the Biohotel Schlossgut Oberambach you learn to find inner peace.

– Recharge and regain your inner strength
– Find lasting peace
– Relax and enjoy a greater stress tolerance
– Sustain harmony and enduring serenity
– Experience Sahaja Samadhi – natural enlightenment
– Receive effective guidance to happiness

Satsang, consisting of meditative silence and support, is held twice daily. Let‘s explain: Satsangs are gatherings where busy minds cool down. Through silence, meditation, dialogue, music and perhaps ecstatic dance.

In Madhukar’s presence you’ll be able to easily relax into silence. His clear guidance shows you how to sustain harmony in your daily life. Silence is the most powerful force in the universe. It is the ground of being. In silence inner peace and happiness reveals.
During the retreat we take a temporary vow of silence, meditate, take walks alone or together and gather for the sunset by the campfire directly at the lake.

You will receive a certificate of your participation in this Enlighten Life Silent Retreat

“After the retreat, everything is much lighter now. Things that were difficult before are now easy and quickly done." A participant
