DescriptionThis retreat precedes Thanksgiving and is perfectly timed for going within and sharing your gratitude with the Divine in the silence of your soul. Deliberate periods of silence in our lives help us to relax, recharge and expand beyond the boundaries of our every day outlook on things. We find that we are better able to hear the language of our soul and the language of God, that silence is the fertile and very sweet soil in which to place the plant of our devotion. We will have group meditations, walks in silence, heavenly, simple meals, chanting out loud and "superconsciously," time for journaling, and instruction for how to get the most out of your silent retreat. No prior experience is necessary This retreat is led by Nayaswami Maria who has been meditating and maintained a person spiritual practice for 40 years.
