The purpose of this silent retreat is to go inwards and observe, accept and regulate our thoughts, feelings. For it is in this silence that we can learn about the microcosm in us and the macrocosm outside us. Silence is the medium of spiritual journeys. Silence is the medium of receiving message from the cosmos. Silence is the medium of accepting and healing ourselves.
While most part of the retreat will be in silence, there will be a few brief "check-points" during the reatreat when Yogi Arvind will offer some guidance and coaching for a smooth experience.
