Guided Silent Retreat

The 3-day Guided Silent Retreat is suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators. The sessions unfold at a gentle, progressive pace which allows for opportunities to bring our personal practice to a deeper level.

Silence is recognized by many of the world’s spiritual traditions as a powerful antidote to the mental agitation and stress resulting from the demands of our everyday life.
