We invite those of you in search of an oasis of peace, silence and introspection to join us for the Silent Meditation Retreat in the beautiful Danish countryside.
This exceptional retreat takes place over the New Year period, bringing to a close the year that has been while ushering in the coming year in profound states of silence and deep introspection.
To ensure the health & safety of all participants – the retreat will be held in multiple locations, with a maximum of 20 participants in each location.
This retreat for those who are looking for an ambiance of peace & silence where they can dive into the depths of their heart & soul, meditate deeply, and charge the new year with spiritual growth & aspirations.
To be able to take the leap into the relatively unknown domain of meditation and inner reflection, there needs to be a call within.
For most of us, this means being able to quieten the mind enough in order to be able to hear that inner voice that calls us to such an experience, to make that choice to go deeper than our usual daily existence.
We invite you to start the new year in silence, to discover the treasures of your spiritual heart and its mysteries, and to explore the question:
What would you find if you went just a little bit deeper?
Meditate in the peace & silence of the Danish winter countryside
During the retreat you have the unique opportunity to be in complete silence; without phones, emails or any external distractions, creating all the conditions to focus internally and discover the genuine treasures of your own inner universe; to explore the mysteries of your soul, awaken your spiritual heart and discover your true Self.
Let go of old patterns, find your deepest aspirations and charge the new year
The retreat offers the unique opportunity to:
- Reflect on the events & lessons of the previous year
- Identify and let go of all the sources of stress, agitation, and turmoil in daily life – everything that is not serving you and holds you back can be let go here
- Realize the deepest aspirations of your heart & soul
- Charge the new year with a powerful upward momentum, accelerated spiritual realizations & transformations
Exceptional meditations & initiations offered only in this retreat
UNIQUE INITIATION in the special technique for revealing the Supreme Self ATMAN
Receive the initiation in the essential Self-Revelation technique of our school. This simple yet highly efficient technique takes you step by step, starting from the level where you are, gradually uplifting you to the Revelation of the Self. This practical technique is accessible for everyone, the only prerequisite is a higher aspiration.
The initiation in this technique is only available in this Self-Revelation Retreat.
How retreat is structured:
*In the first few days, there will be a gentle warm-up, to gradually make the switch from daily life to deep introspection and meditation. The meditations will be shorter and the Hatha Yoga practice will be longer.
Lectures will present essential elements of effective meditation. All this allows you to gradually prepare for the longer meditations and intense program of the following camp.
*After the first few days, the program will contain meditations, lectures, guided yoga practice all aiming to guide you on the fascinating journey of your inner universe.
This stage is a wonderful blend of theory and practice – the theory provides the framework for the meditations, comprehensively explaining the process of entering and deepening the meditative state.
Please note that the actual meditations are in silence – aspirants will use the information they receive in the theoretical part to deepen their experiences in the meditation.
The Silent Meditation Retreat program also includes:
* Hatha Yoga sessions to prepare for entering deeper states of meditation
* Daily exemplifications of different spiritual states
* Q&A sessions with senior teacher Advaitananda
