• All meditations, tea breaks, meals & visits to Assisi happen in silence. But we do communicate practical informations in a natural way, so daily life can happen smoothly. However, during the whole week we refrain from conversations and smalltalk.
• Breakfast is taken individually.
• Each afternoon session gives the possibility for sharing. For more profound personal guidance outside the group simple advice can be given at any time or a session with Mayadevi (90 minutes) can be booked.
• For the visits to Assisi´s Sacred Places we will accompany you to the entrance of the monasteries whereafter you can visit the sites in your own space and at your own pace.

About This Event

During a Silent Retreat we enjoy the Simplicity of Being, connect to the nature and its overwhelming silence, visit the sacred places around Assisi.

 Being present, where Heaven and Earth meet,
… where life unfolds itself,
… where being is enough,
… being with all as it is,
… being moved by the flow of life,
… in resonance with the pulse of life.

A Silent Retreat helps you to make the shift as expressed in the saying: “Remember you´re a human being, not a human doing”...

The Silent Retreat Center in Assisi offers once a month (May-Sept) a one week silent retreat.
It is also possible to come for an Individual Stay.

Because you have the right to remain silent !
