Silent Retreat

When was the last time you really gave yourself the gift of silence? I am not just talking quiet time here, I am talking silence. When you dive into a day and everything is introspective.....upon rising you begin by stretching, breathing and listening. Listening to the sounds of your house, the sounds outside, the wind in the trees, the love song of birds. Did you know?  Silence decreases stress by lowering blood cortisol levels and adrenaline. Furthermore, according to  studies,  just two minutes of silence relieves tension in the body and brain and is more relaxing than listening to music.

I am offering you the invitation to dive in! To spend a day in silent reflection. I will lead you in Yoga, Nidra, Meditation, Journaling. There will be snack breaks and eating meditation and we will conclude with time for reflection.  A silent retreat offers the opportunity to take the energy you use for external communication and channel it inward. Going on a silent retreat is, essentially, embarking on a journey—and as with all journeys, you’ll face difficulties along the way. Real silence requires being alone with yourself, and being comfortable with that solitude. This can be hard even for the most introspective among us.

You may experience an intense emotional reactions to the struggle of simply sitting with your thoughts, and that’s okay! It’s all part of the process.

With all the mental noise of life, we could all use some peace and quiet. Even when we are craving silence, going more than a few hours without talking may seem like an intimidating task. If you find yourself fatigued and ‘addicted’ to distractions, a silent retreat might be just what you need.
