About the event
10-day Silent Hridaya Meditation Retreat
Year-round we invite participants to join our 10 day silent group retreats. In June we focus on Solitary and Dark Room Retreats. Follow us on instagram to stay up-to-date with our group retreat planning! Mid June we will provide an update with our planning for the summer/autumn period.
The retreat was specifically created to guide people in coming to an intimate understanding of what Self-Enquiry meditation is in order to experience the inner transformation that it brings.The program aims to create an experience resembling a Solitary Retreat (as in a cave), in order to provide the opportunity to reach Deep States of Consciousness, kindle intense Aspiration for the Divine, and arrive at the highly focused interiorization that enables the Opening of the Heart.This method is a unique integration of Advaita Vedanta, Sufism, Tantra, and Dzogchen. In the advanced stages of practice, all paths of authentic spiritual traditions meet harmoniously and merge into the same Ineffable Reality.No previous meditation or yoga experience is necessary as this retreat is designed for beginners and advanced meditators alike.*We reserve the right to ask participants (before/after the deposit is paid) to have a call/video call with us and to cancel the booking (with full deposit refund) in case we consider that this particular person may not be ready for the retreat.
