Silent Meditation Retreats

7-day silent meditation retreat with Shunyamurti

Heal your heart with silence and meditation

Reawaken to the beauty of authentic presence.

Silence and Meditation

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.

Spiritual Guidance

During Shunyamurti Silent Retreats—the external silence is only broken during extraordinary classes filled with ego-dissolving teachings and vibrational frequencies that melt the heart’s defenses. Drop all facades and become vulnerable enough to ask the deepest questions about issues that have been on your heart and mind. Here you will receive the life-altering answers that you were always searching for.

If you wish to cultivate the practice of silence and meditation while still being
in community and enjoying sacred satsang then this retreat is for you.

The power of Meditation and Silence

Silent Retreats with Shunyamurti focus on establishing attention in the innermost core of pure silence and stillness. There will be extended periods of silent meditation in this retreat and fewer activities of other kinds. But there will be walking meditation, asanas, pranayamas, and time for journaling and being out in Nature. The focus will be attention to the Infinite Beauty of all that is.

Dive into the purity of silence

The goal of Sat Yoga is permanent establishment in Absolute Consciousness. This is simply achieved through the elimination of the narrative chatter of the ego. This resolves all forms of emotional instability, ends unwanted habit patterns, and dissolves all suffering. It strengthens the body’s electromagnetic energy field and heals illness and fatigue. This is the shortest and quickest path to inner freedom and happiness.

One whose consciousness has merged with Brahman, the Absolute, and thus has been liberated from all desire, fear, attachment, and material frames of reference. Thus, a Brahmachari naturally lives a life of celibacy, simplicity, and inner solitude.


Meditative meetings in which the highest teachings are shared. Shunyamurti also offers guidance during questions and answers to resolve the most difficult and delicate matters of the heart.


Information, energy, or nonlinear change that occurs as the effect of events that take place in the future and alter the past, which is perceived in the present as non-ordinary phenomena, synchronicities, unpredictable emergent properties or other notable explicate arisings. The source of such forces may also lie beyond chronological time, in higher dimensions of the Real.

The process of non-process:

Since awakening is instantaneous, along with the recognition that one was never really in the dream, but enjoying the creation of the dream, it must be understood that making awakening into a process can only be part of the dream, and has nothing to do with Awakening itself.

The Real:

When we speak of the Real, unless otherwise qualified, we mean the Supreme Real. The Supreme Real does not appear. Appearance is not Real. All that appears is empty of true existence. There are no real things. All that is phenomenal is temporary, dependent, and reducible to a wave function of consciousness. The world does not exist independent of consciousness. There is no matter or material world. All is made of consciousness. Pure consciousness is Presence. It is no-thing, non-objective, not in space or time. All that appears in Presence, or to Presence, is an emanation of Presence, but is not different from That. This is one meaning of nonduality.

The Real is also a term used in Lacanian psychoanalysis. What Lacan means by the Real is that aspect of phenomenal appearance which is overwhelming, traumatic, or impossible. We would call that Real One. It is a relative Real, not Absolute. We add that there is a Real Two, which consists of divine love. Love is not an appearance, but it changes appearance, through recognition of its Source, into a divine manifestation, a projection of God’s sublimely beautiful Mind as infinite fractal holographic cosmos. Real Three is the unchanging Absolute, beyond all conception or image.

Dharma and dharma:

When we use the term Dharma (capitalized), we refer to our dedication to living in accord with the timeless principles of impeccable integrity that keep us in harmony with Nature and our Supernatural Source.

When we use the term without capitalization, we refer to our acceptance of the community’s processes, protocols, and chain of command with the “Haji! Spirit” of going the “extra mile” and working overtime when necessary to make the impossible inevitable, as our unconditional act of surrender to Love.
