Description

Rest in your Infinite Nature

What could be better than an annual silence retreat?
Perhaps a silence retreat in an awesome setting of natural silence, incredible beauty and peace…
The Art of Living Silence Retreat in Boone, offered for a minimum of two and a half days, 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.
You will also have time to explore the grounds of the center and the surrounding mountain pathways.

“Every moment doing the advance course was a new experience for me: the meditation and the silence.”

— Nita R

 

” I cannot directly pin point it, but definitely there is a big change from before and after going to the part-2 course. I feel I have become a new person, so I say that the part-2 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
