About The Event
Ashram Yoga’s signature Silent Meditation Retreat is back.
A 3-day inner pilgrimage.
Contrary to what some people think, meditation is not passive nor is it about having an empty mind. Instead, it is about self-exploration and allowing our innermost being to express itself. In this particular tradition, we use breath awareness, mantras (sacred sounds), charkas (energy centres) and energy pathways to develop subtle awareness and dive into the deeper layers of our being. Rather than viewing our thoughts and emotions as distractions or obstacles, we work with what is and embrace the total spectrum of our inner experience with self-compassion. This eventually leads us to discover our true nature – the treasure within.
Silence, a spiritual practice in itself, enables us to internalize and allows a deeper kind of nourishment. In a silent and meditative environment, the body relaxes, awareness sharpens, and space opens for hidden impressions to release and insights to develop. Finally we can allow ourselves to just BE.
We offer a well-structured program that creates balance between stillness and movement. Led by experienced and skilful facilitators, the meditation practices will be supported by asanas (yoga postures), pranayama (breath work), yoga nidra (guided relaxation), karma yoga (selfless service), kirtan (devotional chanting), and discussions. Three days is an ideal amount of time to get a taste of the power of self-discovery.
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced practitioner, we invite you to join us on this inner journey.
“When I open my eyes to the outer world,
I feel myself as a drop in the sea;
But when I close my eyes and look within,
I see the whole universe a bubble
Raised in the ocean of my heart.”
