Description

Dive into a state of unity, peace, beauty, and love with Paramahamsa Vishwananda. This Silent Retreat is designed to awaken your inner Divinity. The silence graced to you during this retreat allows you to drop into the inner stillness of your heart and feel the presence of the Divine within yourself. Paramahamsa Vishwananda’s masterful guidance will support you throughout the retreat and help you to experience a profound shift in your life and spiritual practice.

If you silence yourself completely, if you silence your mind, you will receive everything. You will not even need to ask. You will receive, because God is merciful.

Impressions of Silent Retreat 2016

What to Expect

The Silent Retreat is structured in a very specific way and is designed to awaken the inner voice deep within yourself. The general structure of the retreat consists of morning warm-up yoga, guided Japa Walks through the scenic forests and fields around, self-analysis, meditation, and specifically-assigned mantra chanting. 

Make the Commitment

The Silent Retreat requires a serious personal commitment and a willingness to put in tremendous emotional and spiritual effort in order to attain the full benefit being offered. The retreat should not be treated as a holiday, but as a period of intense self-reflection and silent sadhana (spiritual practice). Participants will remain isolated for long periods of time during the retreat and silence must be maintained throughout all activities during the week. You will need to surrender your phones and computers during the retreat to minimise distractions from the outside world.

Schedule

Paramahamsa Vishwananda will be with us the whole time and opens the retreat on Saturday, 19 September, at 18:00. He will introduce the structure and intent of the retreat and answer any last-minute questions before He sends everyone off in silence for the remainder of the week and will be present during this time with you. The retreat will finish with a wrap-up meeting on the last night and a Sunday departure on 27 September at 10:00.

Place

This retreat will be held in the Umbria region of Italy known as the 'green heart'. Located in the middle of the boot, between Assisi and Rome, the picturesque landscape is made up of rolling hills, mountains, hollows and plains and extends along the Tiber’s central basin. Further details will be provided upon your acceptance into the retreat.
