DATES OF THE RETREAT

29th December to 7th January every year
Please arrive at The Hermitage on the 29th of December for an introduction meeting.

ABOUT THE RETREAT

We ask that participants make a commitment to join the entire retreat and keep a vow of silence for the whole thirty days. The retreat will involve a beautiful schedule of meditation, hatha yoga, and daily teachings on Advaita Vedanta (Non Duality), Self Enquiry Method, Meditation Practices from Sufism, Buddhism and Christianity, and Sacred Poetry.

Each day we will practice together in the main meditation hall over looking the lake, and there will also be time for self practice and contemplation in the gardens or on our private beach. The emphasis of the teachings will be on meditation and self enquiry, and also how to integrate your daily life into your spiritual practice.
