Feel the presence of peace all around you and deep inside of you. Peace is the ongoing steady reality that exists throughout all time. Everything else is changing. Each of us can be an anchor of peace in the world.
Silence washes our awareness. Our retreat invites us to receive peace and quiet, giving us the opportunity to receive the beauty in nature, meditation, the present moment, the simplicity of just being. In a silent retreat we can touch the sacred inside of us.
These are precious days free from our daily story and all that we are doing. In the quiet we open to the peace that is in our hearts. Silence allows everyone the opportunity to stay with their own thoughts, their inner experience.
The quiet helps everyone find this inner place of love and beauty that is always present but mostly covered up by busy-ness. The gift of silence is having nothing to do, nothing to say, having time to enjoy solitude, gentleness, a quiet mind.
A few days of simple peace and we feel new again, more in touch with our essence. The silence is the doorway into our own spirituality, truth, wisdom.
All traditions welcome.
When we are not busy talking, our mind takes a rest. Our heart becomes more available. The silence outside helps us to find the still place inside. This is our silent retreat, the vast quietude of the heart. A few days of simple peace and we feel new again, heart centered, grounded, more whole. The silence is the doorway into our own spirituality, truth and wisdom.
