Description

Join this incredible 1-day silent journey from 9am - 2pm and experience stillness like never before!


The call to silence is very personal. This retreat invites you to take one step deeper into that which you already are; peaceful awareness. Silent retreats offers us an opportunity to indulge in listening deeply to relfect on the nature of life. Seldom are there such occasions where we are warmly welcomed into ourselves, held within an environment designed to support your experience. As my teacher says, "this wine is within you." Join us to drink from a wellspring of peace and contentment easily discoverable in stillness.


Wondering what to expect? We will explore seated meditation practice (floor and chair seating options available), walking meditations, reflections & collective wonderment, 1 optional Yin style yoga class and more! Your day includes superb coffee & tea, light breakfast and refreshments, beverages, lunch and afternoon ice cream!
