About the event

This is an invitation  to go deeper into the remarkable journey into the Heart!

What an incredible gift to give yourself, to come home to yourself, as we bring in the New Year with Stillness, Openess and Love!

3 days of  silence that allows us to witness the beauty, love and wisdom of the Heart.. of who we really are…

This retreat is inspired by The Hridaya Yoga approach, which celebrates the joy of meditation. Creating a quiet, safe and supportive environment, similar to the conditions of a solitary retreat - noble silence, no interaction with others and contemplation.

Join us in this journey to the Heart, to what we all truly are, in Stillness, silence, openness, love!

From a practical point of view, the primary meditation that we will practice consists of 3 attitudes:

1) The awareness of the Heart Centre

2) The awareness of short pauses after inhalation and exhalation

3) Self-enquiry (asking the question “ Who am I?”)
