Silence and Meditation Retreat (Free)
As the previous years, we will organize the 7th edition of this Retreat.
We will experience different techniques and methods that will help us to become aware of the present moment through silence. Silent meditations, yoga, conscious breathing, mantra vocalization, moving guided meditations, nature walking, dancing will be performed.
We will be in silence all these days, we will only give instructions in the beginning of the activities, but keeping the silence the rest of the time. If you feel ready to accept this challenge of being in silence please join us.
You will understand how silence affects us with peace and tranquility. You will have a lot of tools to meditate alone or in other groups.
The individual practice of Meditation is essential, but when we meditate in groups we can create an greater synergy that further enhances its purpose.
It activates parts of the brain, helping to rejuvenate brain and biological health. Improves self esteem, mood, gives us more clarity, concentration and focus.
The practice of meditation is very old, going back to the eastern traditions. There are different philosophies, ways, methods and techniques. Some examples are transcendental meditation, active meditations, vipassana, mindfulness, prayer, Zen meditation, Taoist, Buddhist, etc. The paths of meditation are innumerable, but the purpose is only one: to be present, to empty the mind, to enter a state of non-agitation and alertness in the moment and in silence.
