As in previous years, this year we will hold the 6th Edition of this Meditation and Silence Retreat.
We will experience different techniques and methods that will help us become conscious of the present moment through silence. There will be meditations in silence, yoga, conscious breathing, vocalization of mantras, guided meditations in movement, nature walks, and dance.
We will be silent on all these days, we will only give the instructions at the beginning of the activities, but we remain silent the rest of the time. If you feel you are ready to accept this challenge of silencing the words and the mind, participate with us.
You will understand how silence fills us with peace and tranquility. You will take with you countless tools to be able to meditate alone or in other groups.
The individual practice of Meditation is essential, however, when we meditate in a group we can create an even greater synergy that enhances its purpose even more.
Activates dormant regions of the brain, helping to rejuvenate brain and biological health. It improves self-esteem, mood, gives us more clarity, concentration, and focus.
The practice of Meditation is very ancient, going back to Eastern traditions. There are different philosophies, paths, methods, and techniques. Some examples are transcendental meditation, active meditations, vipassana, mindfulness, prayer, Zen meditation, Taoist, Buddhist, etc. The paths of meditation are countless, but the purpose is only one: to be present, to empty the mind, to enter a state of non-agitation and alertness in the moment and in silence.
