Make the Commitment

The Silent Retreat Seminar requires a serious personal commitment and a willingness to put in tremendous emotional and spiritual effort in order to attain the full benefit being offered. The retreat should not be treated as a holiday, but as a period of intense self-reflection and silent sadhana (spiritual practice).

  • Participants will remain isolated for long periods of time during the retreat

  • Silence must be maintained throughout all activities during the week

  • You will need to surrender your phones and computers during the retreat to minimise distractions from the outside world

  • An emergency phone number will be given to you so that your families/friends can contact you in case of need
