Description

The Silent Retreat provides optimal conditions for going deep within, quieting mental chatter, and experiencing profound rest and inner silence. The practice of silence — of consciously withdrawing energy and attention from outer distraction — has been used in different traditions throughout time as a pathway to physical, mental, and spiritual renewal.

This program combines the Happiness Retreat and several days of silent contemplation with unique guided meditations as well as advanced breathing techniques. The first two days include various talking processes, which actually deepen your experience of silence. You will also take home a beautiful practice to sustain inner quiet and peace in daily life.

Why take 3-4 days out of your busy life for a meditation retreat?

These few days make the rest of your year more alive, productive and full of energy. When you emerge, you feel recharged and refreshed, ready to take on all your responsibilities with greater focus and joy.

Get much-needed rest in an all-inclusive guided retreat
Go deeper with advanced guided meditations, silent inquiry and rejuvenating yoga.

Emerge rejuvenated

Your whole stay is carefully guided and crafted to give you as relaxing and transformative an experience possible. There’s morning yoga, nature walks in the mountains, delicious plant-based dining and a supportive atmosphere for your inner journey. It’s no wonder that many course participants refer to it as the ideal vacation for body, mind, and spirit.

I have been to other silent retreats… but basically, we were just silent and did our own thing, with optional classes we could attend throughout the day. But what we did here is so much more. What you guys offer is a full curriculum—the guided meditations, the service, the wisdom, the music—all of this took me on a journey far deeper than I thought possible.” — Silent Retreat participant


I feel more like myself after the Silence Retreat. My life goes smoother after it, and I feel the difference for a good 3-6 months.” — Daniel Moss


It was very, very powerful. I gained such a sense of calm, more than I ever could have imagined.” — Max Goldberg, livingmaxwell.com
