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 YesPlus 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 be with yourself in nature, amid the pristine forests and peaks that surround the center.


Yoga Remix+Silence: Get Ready for a New Year’s Like No Other

Building on the tradition of this annual event, before going into silence, participants will get to experience the Yoga Remix, a unique body-mind dance party with the ButterThief band! Those arriving earlier may also have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Founder of the Art of Living who is expected to be on the Retreat Center campus until 30th morning.


“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
