Silence in the Forest: 5-day Summer Meditation Retreat

 

Imagine a blooming summer in the Tuscan forest spent in Contemplation, Silence and Harmonious Beingness while the land is bursting with all its colors and lushness. This is a truly special time of the year at the Inner Peace Sanctuary to come into a deep connection with Mother Nature’s cycles within and without and to attune and reset ourselves in subtle nurturing ways.

We recommend participating in both the “Summer Silence” and the “Autumn Harvest” editions of this Retreat if possible in order to establish a regularity and steadfastness with the practice. 

You are invited to immerse yourself in the teachings & practices of Advaita Vedanta, non-duality tradition of India, evoking the felt sense of Oneness Consciousness within your own experience through the pathway of the Spiritual Heart (Hridaya) and Self-Inquiry.

Designed as a non-dogmatic process aimed to benefit people from diverse backgrounds, this retreat is comprised by multiple sessions of meditation each day, guiding you gently through a number of techniques from Advaita Vedanta, Kashmiri Shaivism, Zen and Tibetan Buddhism as well as Middle Eastern Mysticism, complemented by a daily Hatha Yoga session, dharma discourse and delightful Sufi poetry to inspire all to go deeper.

This retreat is open to both, beginners and seasoned practitioners on any path.
