Unplug and Embrace Silence ~ A Weekend Retreat

Thursday, Nov 10, 2022 – Sunday, Nov 13, 2022

4:00pm – 1:00pm

Have you been curious to expand your comfort with silence? Maybe you are seeking a deeper sense of peace. Are you trying to make an important life decision? Maybe you simply need a break from hustle and daily routine. Unplug and Embrace Silence is an opportunity to renew your sense of inner peace and wellbeing.

Through silence, exposure to meditation techniques, conscious breathing, restorative yoga, sound healing bowls, and massage you will realize that the practice of consciously carving out time for silence and self-care benefits your physical health, outlook on life, and relationships with everyone you encounter!

At this group silent retreat:

  • Allow your body to relax and disconnect from mental clutter.
  • Find your soul’s center, where calm, confidence and clarity lie within.
  • Turn away from life’s hollow distractions; find peace within your own mind.
  • Develop life-long appreciation for silence, the home of compassion and generosity.
  • Use silence to cultivate wisdom and self-discovery.
  • Enjoy nutritious meals, the wonder of nature, and plenty of unstructured time.


The schedule for this retreat has been designed to allow plenty of unstructured time, so that you may personalize your retreat experience and enjoy many of the beautiful features of the sanctuary, from walking the outdoor labyrinth and meandering our meditation gardens, to hiking through our hills and oak groves, to wildlife watching (see if you spot a few deer and wild turkeys!), to finding a cozy corner on the couches in our pine-log Lodge, relaxing with a chair massage, and more.

You’ll be able to savor the delicious and nourishing meals made from scratch for this retreat, and take part in a few group offerings as well, including a guided meditation, a sound bath, and a gentle silent hike.
