Spiritual Heart Silent Meditation Retreats

Unplug, unwind and rest in pure being, supported by teachings from renowned contemplative traditions.

Spiritual Heart 3 and 6-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 6 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 6-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.
