“In absolute silence, sleeps an absolute power”. Sri Aurobindo
Do you feel a need to de-link from the stresses and tensions of daily work and life?
Are you seeking a deeper inner experience of peace?
Do you enjoy observing the simple things in nature?
Would you like a weekend away from the normal routine-something subtle and different?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then our upcoming Yoga of Silence Retreat may be of interest to you. We have selected a serene, natural venue, the Melody Hill Retreat Centre in Magliesburg to enable you to experience a unique spiritually fulfilling weekend.
The program will be simple. There will be two classes of yoga exercises (deep relaxation, self-massage, yogic therapeutic dance, etc) and two sessions of basic mantra meditation daily, according to the Ananda Marga style. There will be short inspirational talks after the morning and evening meditation sessions. We will serve sentient, light vegetarian food. The rest of the time will be yours to do what you need to do. You may meditate more, walk in nature, write your feelings and experiences in your journal, read a spiritual book, or even catch up on lost sleep (if that’s what you really need). Led by senior monks of Ananda Marga (The Path of Bliss) www.anandamarga.org we will observe silence from sunrise of Saturday until 11 a.m. on Sunday prior to our final sharing, lunch and departure.
Our experience from previous retreats is that people loved the silence so much that some were hesitant to begin speaking again! Please join us for a different high on that weekend and go deep into the mood of Infinite Love.
The total cost for the Retreat is 1,300 Rands.
