At The Sanctuary we are currently holding space for yoga meditation retreats to help both staff and guests perceive "the background of stillness" more fully, thereby helping to achieve greater balance, health and harmony.
For 3 days periods, silent retreats are organized at The Sanctuary to help us understand more about us and what's around us. Three days is long enough to feel a deepening awareness of our thoughts and actions. It is a reasonable time to challenge one's self, everybody can do it.
We like to organize the retreat around different aspects and exercises:
We will keep our noble talks off for a little while and try to be more conscious of our thoughts, our sensations, our feelings ... to be more present and more connected to our inner self.
Meditating remains an amazing way to develop a higher understanding of the real self. We emphasise the self-inquiry teachings of advaita vedanta, based partly on the Hridaya Yoga Revelation of the Spiritual Heart meditation retreats offered by Sahajananda at www.hridaya-yoga.com
For more information specifically about the Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreats, visit this page.
Educative, philosophical, spiritual deep or light readings will be shared before the beginning of the meditation sessions. They are there to recall higher knowledge or maybe just to make us laugh.
For residents participating in this retreat, we offer our usual menu of vegan food, with the option to deepen the cleanse with coconut water fasting. Non-residents can add the food package.
