Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat

29th December , 2019 - 1st January, 2020

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

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

The Hridaya approach 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 technical point of view, the main Hridaya meditation 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?”)

For more information please visit the main homepage of Hridaya yoga

No previous meditation or yoga experience is necessary as this retreat is designed for beginners and people with an established meditation practice.
