The quiet heart is the doorway to inner happiness & wisdom. Holding outer quiet supports and nurtures inner quiet and calm. We begin to notice the peace in the presence that is all around us and inside of us. We are finding a balance between inner and outer life.
Each person is unique and has a place of perfect peace inside. With meditation, silence & time for ourselves we can find the doorway to this well of being inside our hearts, to our inner wisdom. We can help you take this practice home and integrate it into daily activities. Bring a journal to remember simple ways to increase inner quiet.
Anyone wishing to stay one month or more in peace & quiet in contemplative community with beautiful nature is welcome. Long-term retreats are for people wanting to deepen their spiritual practice, perfect for writers, students, or creative pursuits of all kinds.
"Thank you so much for this experience. I can now hear the silence of my heart and embrace the inner peace. I have been truly moved by my time here. I look forward to when I come back." Kevin G.
"Thank you again for sharing the gift of silence with me and so many others. It has truly changed my life and is the seed of so much of the self-discovery, self-knowing, and self loving that has followed. Warm wishes and much inner peace, Joel A.
"My time at Silent Stay has changed my life. I'm more productive at work, I'm more tolerant and of my fellow man, and in general I have a better, more peaceful outlook on life. I wish to thank you both for helping me get there. I plan to come again very soon to continue my journey, sitting contentedly in my inner river. Nathan G.
