*WHAT IS A SILENT RETREAT? A silent retreat means that everyone participating observes noble silence. No conversations, but also no use of phone or any devices, not even reading. This external vow of silence may seem harsh or difficult, yet it is actually a very natural and normal once begun and inevitably brings an experience of deep peace. In an environment with less information intake, the mind gets the chance to quiet down and meditation is natural and easy. Being in silence is a very unique, deeply purifying and enlightening experience. It creates space for a deep insight and deep rest
