Service Description

The Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat is a unique 10-day immersion experience which uses an artful integration of meditation and yoga techniques to access your real and essential nature, known as the Spiritual Heart, the Supreme Self, or atman. During the retreat, you will explore the Spiritual Heart from a variety of perspectives, including esoteric Christianity, Sufism, and Kashmir Shaivism. In the advanced stages of practice, all paths of authentic spiritual traditions meet and merge into the same ineffable Reality. During this program you will stay in complete silence and keep a solitary attitude while receiving a set of inspiring teachings and lectures to provide you with the opportunity to reach the deep states of consciousness that enable the revelation of the Heart. The approach is a unique integration of Advaita Vedanta, Tantra Yoga, and Dzogchen. You will learn a form of Self-Enquiry meditation inspired by the non-dual teachings of the great sage Ramana Maharshi. Most importantly, this retreat will help you experience what it means to be centered in the Heart. This means to be aware of that peaceful and eternal core of your being, which cannot be perceived by the rational mind but is the source of all inspiration, love, and beauty. No previous meditation or yoga experience is necessary as this retreat is designed for beginners and advanced meditators alike. This retreat is guided in English.
