ABOUT THIS RETREAT
The Silent Retreat is a quest for the Truth of our essential self. We are in essence, the Sat, the eternal, unchanging foundation of existence. It is the essential “truth”, the foundation of our being. The Sat is both individual and universal. It is impersonal but it is the source of our personality and of all our experience, including spiritual experience. The nature of the Sat is silence and stillness. The experience of the Sat takes the form of ‘sat-chit-ananda’…truth, consciousness and bliss.
This program is not only a retreat from the world of demand, distraction, and responsibility; it is also a retreat from the habit of our egoic self in order to more firmly establish our divine nature. A Silent Retreat requires a commitment on your part to follow the structure and to surrender yourself to the program, to create the value for yourself. It is an opportunity to go more deeply inward and to relinquish, to ‘let go,’ in ways you have not yet done. It is an opportunity to shed the habit of your ego and enter deeply into that field of being that lives us, our eternal self.
They are designed to create a feeling of silent yoga or unity. Every aspect of the program is organized not only to manifest the SAT but also to give you time to explore how you can integrate what you discover into your life. This is the intention and the purpose of this retreat.
