Through times of silence and practices such as watching your mind, calming the breath, chanting mantras — and unplugging from electronic devices – you can become receptive to your interior landscape. Listen to your inner voices – what do they say? Which to follow and which to let go? Can you find a place of rest?

This retreat will include times of speaking as well as periods of intentional silence (mauna). Please be prepared to commit to a few days without electronic devices.
