Dive into Silence

Unplug & Recharge
An experiment with silence
October 26 – 29, 2017

Are you overwhelmed by the chaotic energy on the planet right now? Do you feel like you’re going nuts? Take a break from the inner and outer frenzy!

At this retreat, you’ll explore and experience powerful practices that leave you feeling clear, refreshed, and powered-up for the holiday season. Guided walking meditation, sitting meditation, yoga, nourishing meals, and plenty of unstructured time will support your retreat experience. Practical, take-home tools will also be offered that can help you re-center and find inner strength as you return to daily life after the weekend. 

No prerequisite.

From a past participant –
“I loved this opportunity for intentional silence. To be around other positive, intentioned energy without having to fill the space with narrative; to be able to work on creating more space within myself while not feeling secluded or alone—what a magical concept!” – Breana

Register by October 18.
