About the event
Our center invites you to deepen your meditation practice by experiencing a private retreat in our Dark Room (Kaya Kalpa), a room specially prepared to admit no light. You may choose the length of the retreat, and we can provide meals and other support for your practice.
Meditation in the dark is an advanced practice which is a part of the ancient Ayurvedic and Tantric traditions of India and Tibet. For centuries, Dark Room Retreats (meditation retreats in rooms completely devoid of light) have been known to induce profound shifts in consciousness.
The aspirant enters a room especially prepared to admit absolutely no light and spends a number of days in darkness in order to enter in an intimate connection with the very Essence of being. For the Hridaya perspective on dark room retreats, please click here and read more.
Our Dark Room
Our center features a comfortable, quiet, well-appointed Dark Room ideal for solitary retreats of any length of time. It is a separate cabana (little house) made mostly from natural materials with a private bathroom. It is cosy and well-ventilated.
Note that as Dark Room Retreats are individual retreats, there are no set event dates.
