Silent retreat

Enjoy a day of peaceful silence. This one day silent retreat will enable participants to go deep in meditation and experience stillness of mind.

This day will offer a wonderful and rare opportunity for you to gain a taste of silent retreat. Spending this period in silence will open the mind to the possibilities that come from external and internal quiet.

Gen Nyingpo will guide each session. Each session will consist of a 15 minute talk and 2 guided meditations.

Information on silent retreat:

  • Silence will be maintained during the day (apart from the teachings and guidance during sessions).
  • Silence will begin from the start of session 1 – you can talk on arrival and ask practical questions before the session starts. Please aim to arrive at least 10 minutes before the first session so you have time to settle in.
  • During the final session we will finish the silent period and allow time for discussion. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions.
  • Mobile phones – please leave them silent, and please only use for emergency purposes.
