Meditative and self-reflection practices designed to bring clarity, energy and peace
Going on retreat is a time to cocoon, so that we may emerge ready to return to our lives with a new perspective.
The medical establishment is just beginning to understand how this always on digital connection is destroying our health and emotional balance. Recent studies confirm that both external noise and digital noise hurt our focus and sleep and increase stress hormones, anxiety and depression. To add to this, there is also an internal noise coming from our constant internal dialogue, rumination and thoughts in our head. How often do you hear inner voices saying you’re not good enough, not tough enough, not successful enough?
There is a deep strong desire that rises in each of us for actual silence, quiet contemplation, peace of mind and reconnection with our true nature.
Without the pull of deadlines, relationships, technology, we give ourselves time to go deeper into our own solitude where we can fully reflect on our joys, sorrows and fears, owning and releasing them as needed.

The problem with listening, of course, is that we don't. There's too much noise going on in our heads, so we never hear anything. The inner conversation simply never stops. It can be our voice or whatever voices we want to supply, but it's a constant racket. In the same way we don't see, and in the same way we don't feel, we don't touch, we don't taste. Phillip Glass
