30-day Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat
May 21 - June 20, 2023
With Claud Vaduva
This 30-day retreat with senior Hridaya teacher Claud is an invitation to deepen your spiritual practice by clarifying your direction—moving from effort to naturalness, resting more in the simplicity of Being, and embracing Self-Inquiry as the potent light of self-introspection that can enable the recognition of what you truly are.
Based on the non-dual vision and inspired by the Hridaya teachings, the emphasis of this retreat is to reveal the inherent truth of your being. In this spirit, long periods of silence and self-practice are essential. They are complemented by guided meditations, Hatha Yoga sessions, meditations in a dark room, a one-night vigil dedicated to Tara (the embodiment of Love and Compassion), inspiring lectures, readings from different spiritual traditions and masters, sacred poetry, outdoor meditations and practices, opening and closing rituals, etc.
