Silent Retreat

About This Event

[Note: This retreat is for people who have not attended the Happiness Program. If you have already attended the Happiness Program, and would not like to repeat, click here for the Art of Silence Retreats.]

An all-inclusive vacation for the Spirit!  Our Silent Retreats are designed to lead you to profound immersion into silence and renewal.

Oftentimes when we begin our journey into silence, the chatter in the mind amplifies.  The to-do lists, the incomplete tasks, past regrets, future anxieties, all come up.  However, this potent combination of the Happiness Retreat and the Art of Silence Retreat takes care of your mind in the most effective way.

As you dive into the power of the breath with the Sudarshan Kriya breathing technique, combined with invaluable yogic wisdom about the mind, body and spirit, the mental chatter subsides and you are carried effortlessly and smoothly to the doorstep of that still, tranquil sanctuary within.

From here, with an ideal combination of unique guided meditations, rejuvenating yoga, profound wisdom sessions, pristine nature and Sattvic vegetarian food, the Silent Retreat takes you through an inward journey where you learn to connect with the unbounded joy of your own company and experience an extraordinary sense of physical, mental and spiritual renewal.
