3-Day Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat

Experience the Peace of the Heart

Find the Stillness Within

The 3-Day Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat is an invitation to discover the joy of being quiet. To remove yourself from everyday distractions, peel away layers of the ego, and find the eternal peace within.

The simple act of asking “Who am I?” can take you on a profound journey of wonderment and self-discovery. In this retreat, you’ll learn techniques for calming your mind and opening your heart so that you’ll be able to ask this question in full presence and really listen to the answers that arise. 

Our experienced teachers share wisdom and inspiration from a variety of spiritual traditions and guide you in a step-by-step meditation practice. 

But a silent meditation retreat isn’t about a technique or bit of knowledge. It isn’t about finding something that’s missing. It’s a process of opening to the part of you that is beyond all limitations. When you connect with that inner realm, it will infuse your entire life with its Love.

Whether you have never meditated or have done many retreats, we invite you to join us on this journey. Three days is an ideal amount of time to get a taste of the power of Self-Inquiry.

I am deeply grateful. It was a fantastic experience. I feel renewed and full of a lot of loving energy. The teacher was able to transmit her depth to me, helping me reach a state of meditation that I would never have been able to reach before. I was flooded with a deep joy and my heart is still vibrating in pure love. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I never expected this 3-day retreat to impact me as much as it did. I'm a spiritual person and I meditate daily. I was able to gain so much peace and insight from the silence, meditations, and teachings. The retreat leaders were very respectful, kind, and supportive. I will definitely be coming back for another one soon.
If you’re reading this right now, do it. Whatever you’re seeking will be realized. Things you didn’t know you needed to hear will be shared with you. Come with no expectations and an open heart.
The retreat was inspiring. In just three days of silence, I felt more connected to reality than I had ever felt before. My mind quieted down and my heart opened up. Seeing so many acts of love and selfless service in a community of people that are voluntarily not talking to each other was very powerful.
I was living in hell, anxiety and sadness and only after three days of living here I know how to see the blue sky.
It was a life-changing experience and I would recommend it to anyone seeking massive value in their lives. … This officially launched my spiritual journey and I could not be more grateful for it.
I feel grateful and lucky to have heard about this retreat and to have taken it. I haven’t done anything like it before, but I feel this is what we need in today’s world, to take time for ourselves.
