10-Day Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat

A Transformative Immersion
in the Spiritual Heart

Give Yourself the Gift of Silence

If you are yearning to go beyond your everyday reality, to quiet your mind and connect to the deepest part of yourself, join us for a 10-Day Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat.

We designed this retreat to guide you to an intimate understanding of what meditation is so you can experience the inner transformation that it kindles.

It’s a chance for you to give yourself a profound gift: Silence. In that silence, you can begin to perceive the peaceful and eternal core of your being, the source of all inspiration, love, and beauty—the Spiritual Heart.

Our experienced teachers share wisdom and inspiration from a variety of spiritual traditions and lead you in a step-by-step practice of Self-Inquiry—asking “Who am I?” and opening to what arises.

Free from distractions and immersed in these teachings, you’ll begin to discover the Truth within yourself. You’ll feel a greater sense of love, wholeness, and open-heartedness. And, you’ll emerge renewed, your life enriched with meaning thanks to new spiritual perspectives.

The 10-Day Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat is guided in English and is offered separately in French and Spanish. Whether you have never meditated or have done many retreats, this retreat is for you. If you don’t have ten days free, join us for a 3-day retreat

My experience here was life-changing and one that I will cherish forever. Everyone’s intentions are pure and heartfelt. The teachings and teachers try to help you in any way they can along your spiritual path while teaching you how to mediate with an open heart and so much more. There is magic that happens in the room and it truly is a gift from God if you allow yourself to be open to what they have to offer. I will forever be indebted to Hridaya Yoga and their teachers for all the help and love they showed me during the part of my journey with them.
It was a very moving and deeply profound reconnection with Love and the Heart. Beautiful lectures and breakthroughs that brought me back home to the Cosmos and Source within. Now I’m equipped for any challenge. ‘Lovers don't search for each other, they’re in each other all along.
I found God at Hridaya. I found myself at Hridaya. The longing I’ve felt most of my life wasn’t for anything outside of myself. This realization changes life completely.
It was absolutely amazing! Regardless your age, gender, religion, ethnic or cultural background, you can learn so much from this retreat and get your life questions answered. You can gain life skills and learn so much about LOVE! It’s a great guidance on your spiritual path.
Over the past two decades, I have studied Eastern philosophy, practiced yoga, danced ecstatically, experimented with psychedelics, etc., etc. It's been a beautiful journey. However, I have never experienced more clarity, more depth, or more continuity in connecting so intimately with my divine Self; I have never remained in pure Being and "bliss without form" for so long, with such intensity, love, and realness. It was incredible, and it opened a new door for me.
It has made the light inside me shine brighter than ever before! I will be attending another retreat very soon. Many, many thanks, it is a truly wonderful retreat. Very well planned and organized. I know it has and will bring joy and peace of mind and heart to many seekers.
The Hridaya silent retreat is definitely the most beautiful gift I ever gave to myself, The most sacred journey I ever took. It is truly a blessing and a privilege to have the opportunity and to make space to go inward for 10 days. Every aspects of the retreat is spectacular. I have been meditating for a few years but thanks to the amazing Hridaya teachings I can feel that my attitude and my meditation techniques have been taken to an all other level.
I realized that my mind is heavy, serious and sad but my Heart is active, happy and peaceful.
–Anne Marie
I didn’t know why I came but left so full and inspired and above all: grounded. Expect maybe some inner work, but be sure it is the perfect vortex to work through it and become a better version of yourself!
The 10-day silent retreat with Hridaya Yoga was absolutely life-changing... no exaggeration. The community wraps you in a blanket of love and helps you further open your own heart along the way. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to go deeper into their spiritual journey or to someone who simply wants more peace and joy in their life.
These ten days gave me strength, liberation, opening, surrender and the wisdom of silence and Self-Inquiry. I am full of Love, gratitude, surrender, joy, and excitement.
Amazing and impressive how much transformation and integration can happen in just ten days through so much knowledge, wisdom, and love, I am extremely grateful.
I purchased a new notebook for the retreat, and I filled it front to back with notes, I treasure it more than my passport.
This retreat gave me a strong and definite calling to make spirituality the center and periphery of my life.
One of the most beautiful experiences I’ve ever had. Everyone should have it at least once in their lives.
-Conny G.
Sitting inside the Heart at one point on day 7, I was able to go into what I can only describe as Home. It was a peace I've never had before, and a defining breakthrough for my path. The teacher's guidance got me to that beautiful, momentary space.
Even though I brought 20 years of meditation and retreat background, the 10-day silent retreat was an unexpectedly strong experience. To me, it was a true initiation into my 'Sacred Heart.' The beautifully orchestrated flow of lecture, seated practice, satsang, yoga, and personal time for walks in nature, offered a wisely attuned space for genuine Self-Inquiry.
