Silence starts with not talking but it’s so much more. We ask there to be no communication between guests, including not making eye contact and not touching others. Silence also means there are no books, no phones , no music, or other distractions. This might feel strict but the point is to not get distracted from what you’re really experiencing in the present moment. We do encourage journaling though.
We have a place for one volunteer per retreat to help with the work in the kitchen and with cleaning. In order to apply to be a volunteer, you need to have sat at least one silent retreat at Bliss & Stars before. You should have the flexibility to work a variety of different tasks. Volunteers are required to do 6 hours of work per day in exchange for the full cost of the retreat. Contact us to learn more and apply.
Silent retreat is an individual journey and it’s not suitable for couples to share the accommodation together. If you and your partner want to join the retreat together, we recommend to book two separate chalets.
We can provide specific nutritional, dietary requirements, food allergies, food intolerance’s etc. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten free options are always available. Please note we don’t serve meat, caffeine, alcohol, and processed sugars.
Everyone is welcome at all of our experiences regardless of the meditation, yoga experience or fitness levels. We cater for different levels, so that you will be supported, challenged & encouraged to learn.
You don’t need to participate in everything; you can pace yourself to find the perfect amount of activity for you. We support you in doing as much or as little as is right for you, depending on how you are feeling. Personally, we wouldn’t want to miss a thing.
No, there is neither mobile coverage or WIFI available. There is a computer with guest access available in case of emergency. And you will be provided a phone number, you can be reached while staying at Bliss & Stars.
