Our silent retreats are precious days free from your daily story and all that you are doing. In the quiet you can open to an inner state of love and beauty. These qualities are always present but generally get covered up with daily life activities. The gift of silence is having nothing to do and nothing to say. Rest your mind in the quiet of your heart.
A Silent Stay meditation retreat gives you the opportunity to slow down and unplug from the noise and demands of everyday life. Our approach emphasizes simplicity, heartfulness, and slow living. The daily program provides meditation instruction in the gentle container of beautiful nature. In retreat you are able to let go of effort and practice receiving the present moment. This is about the simplicity of just Being.
The beauty of silence is that it is spacious, and universal. Our non-denominational retreats allow each person to feel and listen to what is naturally sacred within. Resting in silence, guided by the intention of receiving the gifts of quiet, we find a deep commonality and community in the Heart.
I had been attending various Silent Retreats for over 10 years before I finally found the magic that is Silent Stay. That very first retreat was such a profoundly transformative and life-changing experience, and with every retreat thereafter my inner peace, my healing, my spiritual practice, my growth, my self-love and compassion has deepened, and my light and my heart continue to expand.
Ruth and Bruce teach us how to take these practices home with us.
Thank you eternally, Ellen
