Silent Retreat (long weekend)
Yoga and Meditation
Date: 29 June – 03 July 2017
Price: 345 euro+
This special long weekend retreat is an opportunity to take a time-out for yourself. As during our other retreats, we will practice gentle hatha and relaxing yin yoga and meditation. The difference being that, this time, we will practice noble silence for the whole weekend.
What will it be like to participate in a silent retreat?
The silence allows you to fully bring your senses inward. No chit-chat, no obligated social behavior. You can use this inward attention to connect to your body, emotions, ideas and goals, to observe the effects of the yoga and meditation, or maybe to stimulate your creativity. There is time for silent walks, connecting with nature, writing in your journal, or reading one of our many interesting books.
The instructors will verbally guide you through the program and through the yoga and meditation sessions. At designated time slots it will also be possible to share your experience or ask questions privately with one of the instructors. Of course, they will also be available in cases of emergency.
