DATES OF THE RETREAT

1st May – 30th May every year
Please arrive at The Hermitage on the 30th of April 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 ten 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.

The morning session (before lunch) will be guided and include a one hour lecture, guided hatha yoga and meditation, while the afternoon session will be for group self silent practice and individual contemplation. The emphasis of the teachings will be on meditation and is designed to become gradually more advanced, in depth and also more spacious as the retreat goes on. There will be plenty of time also for silent contemplation in the beautiful Hermitage gardens or beside the lake on our private beach or dock.
