Spiritual Heart 3 and 5-Day Silent Meditation and Yoga Retreats In Bali

The Samyama Spiritual Heart Silent Meditation retreat is a profound experience of silence, self-inquiry, and authentic forms of meditation.

All paths ultimately lead to the same place, and that place is inside of you. It has been there all along.

The only thing you need is the time, support, and inspiration to discover it. Once you do, you never lose that connection.

To return to that place of peace and unconditional love, you simply need to sit quietly in stillness and remember.

Ignite your meditation practice with a 3 or 5 day Spiritual Heart Silent retreat. It may bring about profound insights, and at the least, shift your present experience.

The quieter you become the more you are able to hear.

About the Offering

The 3-day and 5-day silent meditation retreats are designed to imitate a solitary cave retreat – complete silence and minimal contact with the outside world. The group setting provides the feeling of solidarity yet each individual has ample space to go deeply into their own unique experience. Silence is a luxury and the less you speak, the less your brain has to work. The more the brain slows down, the easier it is to enter into deep states of meditation.

The schedule of the day and of the entire retreat is carefully crafted to guide you slowly into deeper meditation and intimacy with your spiritual heart. The result is not only a deep and nourishing vacation from your thoughts but a practical toolbox. You will learn to use these tools to remember your most natural Self even in the most challenging day-to-day moments.

The Retreat sessions have a certain structure; all sessions build up in a specific direction. Therefore full attendance in silence is highly recommended.


Techniques may include:

  • The Self-Enquiry method of Ramana Maharshi
  • Practices from the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra – one of the central texts of Kashmir Shaivism

Post-Retreat Integration

Think you could use a bit more guidance and support once you are out of silence?

We know a Silent Retreat can be quite a deep inner journey and can bring intense realizations, emotions and insights. It’s why we offer “Breaking the Silence Sessions”. This is a 1 hour 1-on-1 session with one of our lead teachers to help you to process and integrate post retreat for only $75 USD. You’ll have an opportunity to discuss your experience and get tips on what may help you get back to day-to-day life with the new insights you have gained.

Please let us know if you’re interested in booking one of these sessions for after the retreat.

A participant will be eligible for 50% refund of a deposit if Samyama is notified at least 90 days prior to the start date.

In all circumstances, when a refund is made, transfer charges will be covered by the participant, not Samyama. This means Samyama will deduct the transfer charge from the total refund sent.

There will be no refund of deposits or retreat fees paid for no-shows, unless major incidents such as death or natural disaster. Force majeure incidents are at the discretion of Samyama management. 

If a participant must cancel after paying in full, the participant may use that balance to book another course at a later date that starts within 12 months, minus the deposit amount. This means, the student will need to pay another deposit to compensate for the last minute cancellation.

Other policies

No special discounts are applied on early bird or flash sale prices.
Please note that we have limited residential spots and usually no residential spots are left for last minute booking.
