Silent Meditation Retreat

A Seven-day Silence and Satsang Meditation Retreat led by Sat Yoga founder and director, Shunyamurti

A Shunyamurti Silent Retreat includes:

Spiritual Guidance, Meditation and Silence 

Be immersed in a way of being that is truly balanced, and connected to the beauty and sacredness of every moment. Nurture and heal your inner Being in an energy field of serenity, joy, and silence. 

Deepen your spiritual practice with three daily formal meditation sittings. Extinguish the noise and chaos of the chattering mind and allow the sublime reality of Infinite Peace to unfold within.

Receive spiritual guidance. During daily wisdom classes, Shunyamurti will guide you to overcome negative conditioning, release addictions, and negative self-images. These sacred satsang gatherings will offer you an opportunity to come out of external silence to ask the deepest questions of the heart.

I started to feel real, powerful warmth in my heart when I was meditating in the group. The atmosphere here with everyone is very healing. I'm very pleased with my time here, and I'm pleased to find out what's ahead.

Oliver, England

I first watched a teaching by Shunyamurti on YouTube and was filled with emotion. I realized that I resonated with him and the Ashram, and I signed up the next day. When you sit in front him, you connect. I realized things before he said them, which felt like I had been studying him for years already.

Sammantha, S. Africa

I question what to do with my life. With so many questions, after twenty years in the big corporate world, I knew what I didn't want to do. I got clarity: clarity on the personal level, and the consequence is amazing, interesting, and frightening at the same time. After seven days of silence and teachings, the question for me is not if I come back, but when I come back.
