24 hour Woman Silent Retreat
Saturday 20th April - 21st April 2019
In modern society we are surrounded by noise – traffic noise, endless emails and phone calls, the chatter of people, and so forth. It seems that there is never a quiet time to relax and recharge any more. Why not consider a silent retreat as a way of getting away from all the hustle and bustle of your every day life.
Or if you want to just kick start that long awaited detoxification of the mind, body and spirit.
Read on to learn more about what silent retreats involves.
What is a Silent Retreat? “Silence is Golden”
The basic premise of a silent retreat is a simple one – you go away to a place and don’t talk for a certain period of time. This could be one day, a few days, or even longer, depending on what you want. Silent retreats usually involve a group of people in one area. Not only are you not speaking to those people, they are not speaking to you. In addition, other artificial noise is avoided (television, radio, etc), so that you don’t hear words for the period of time that you are at the retreat.
The purpose of a silent retreat is so that you can cut out the outside world and listen to yourself and the way that you think. It is avoiding noise so that you can focus inwards on yourself. Silent retreats are essentially a period of extended inward reflection, allowing you to achieve a greater clarity of mind as there are no outwards distractions.
People participate in silent retreats for different reasons. Some do it to commune with a higher purpose, while others do it to solve a particular problem that is troubling them. For others, it is simply a way to relax.
