Nestled in a quiet forest on top of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, The Art of Silence Retreat provides optimal conditions for going deep within, quieting our mental chatter, and experiencing profound rest and inner silence. This course builds upon the Sudarshan Kriya® breathing technique offered in the Art of Living Happiness Program.

The practice of silence – of consciously withdrawing our energy and attention from outer distractions – has been used in different traditions throughout time as a pathway to physical, mental, and spiritual renewal. By participating in various course processes specifically designed to take us beyond our usually active minds, we experience an extraordinary sense of peace and renewed vitality that we carry home with us and into daily lives.

It’s no wonder that many course participants refer to it as the ideal vacation for body, mind, and spirit.



“Every moment doing the Art of Silence course was a new experience for me: the meditation and the silence.”
— Nita R

” I cannot directly pinpoint it, but definitely there is a big change from before and after going to the Art of Silence course. I feel I have become a new person, so I say that the Art of Silence course has been the starting point of my new self. The new me is very comfortable. I feel blessed and very happy. Actually, I feel very lucky to come across a course like this. Thank you for giving such an opportunity.”
— Shoko
