Dark Room Retreats

Immerse Yourself in Darkness
to Reveal Your Inner Light

“Darkness within darkness. The Gateway to all understanding.” –Lao Tzu

Dark Room Retreats are an ancient practice from the Ayurvedic and Tantric traditions. In such retreats, your teacher is darkness itself. You enter a room specially designed to admit no light and spend a number of days in darkness in order to reveal your inner light. It is an experience like no other and brings about a profound shift of consciousness.

Dark Room Retreats
Being in the Dark Room is a lot like being anywhere else, except that certain realities are much more obvious. It is the closest experience to Pure Existence, absolutely simple and vast and luminous all at the same time. In the dark, meditation is not something you do but something you are.
