SILENT RETREAT ITALY 2021
September 19 · 15:00 - September 26 · 09:00 CEST
EXPERIENCE THE SILENCE OF THE HEART
Dive into a state of unity, peace, beauty, and love with Paramahamsa Vishwananda. This Silent Retreat Seminar is designed to awaken your inner Divinity. The silence graced to you during this retreat allows you to drop into the inner stillness of your heart and feel the presence of the Divine within yourself.
If you silence yourself completely, if you silence your mind, you will receive everything. You will not even need to ask. You will receive, because God is merciful. – Paramahamsa Vishwananda
Paramahamsa Vishwananda’s masterful inner and outer guidance will support you throughout the seminar and help you to experience a profound shift in your life and spiritual practice.
ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE
The Silent Retreat Seminar is structured in a very specific way and is designed to awaken the inner voice deep within yourself. The daily activitities include Babaji Surya Namaskar, guided japa walks through the scenic forests, and 3-5 hours of daily self-analysis, meditation, and specifically-assigned mantra chanting.
Paramahamsa Vishwananda will be in residence in the seminar hotel throughout the retreat.
- Check-in begins at 15:00 on Sunday, 18 September.
- After dinner, Paramahamsa Vishwananda will introduce the structure and intent of the retreat and answer any last-minute questions before He sends everyone off in silence for the remainder of the week.
- The retreat will finish with a wrap-up meeting on the last day and a Sunday departure on 26 September no later than 09:00 CEST.
