Are you ready for deep transformation?
A JOURNEY INTO SILENCE
The 4-day Silent Retreat is a truly unique encounter with oneself. It’s a meeting where inner peace and deeper insight can be unfolded. It’s a unique opportunity to take time away from your busy lifestyle and spend a few days in absolute stillness and reflection.
The four days of silence, meditation, mindful movement in nature, and self-immersion will allow your mind and body to slow down and recuperate from the stresses of daily life.
A silent retreat is for anyone who needs time to themselves for an inner transformation and guidance on how to “let go”.
Silence retreat is for you if:
You want to destress, slow down and deeply relax
You need to gain clarity about certain things in your life
You need to be more while doing less
You are ready for a transformation but something is holding you back
You yearn for a deeper connection with yourself and nature
Meet Daria Your Guide
My first 48-hours silent retreat was a profound and transformative experience. It changed my life and kicked off my incredible journey. I not only quit my corporate job, but I also began to see why I wasn’t thriving.
The silence magnified the repetitive habits and thought patterns that caused my depression and alcohol abuse, and noticing these patterns and habits led to significant changes in my everyday life.
The silence taught me to accept and value myself as I am.
That’s why I’m so thrilled to share this experience with you. I want to help you discover the same clarity that I was so fortunate to experience.
Our days will be filled with movement in nature, guided meditations, mindful movement, Yoga Nidra, and stargazing, with plenty of time to rest and reflect throughout the day.
Nights are dedicated to restorative sleep.
You’ll also have the opportunity to meet with and ask questions of your retreat guide.
