When the mind is silent and peaceful it becomes very powerful. It can become a receptor of bliss and wisdom enabling life to become a spontaneous flow and expression of joy and harmony. However…this inner silence cannot arise while there is a continual stream of disturbing thoughts and emotions. All this inner noise of thoughts and emotions has to be removed before one can truly experience the soundless sound of inner silence.  Swami Satyananda Saraswati​

The ashram situated on the edge of the Wombat State Forest is a perfect silent retreat environment.  A short silent retreat offers precious time and space, not always available in other forms of living, for quieter and deeper self-reflection and self-enquiry. 

Being silent is an opportunity to be with yourself, to be still, and to experience enhanced connection with yourself and your surroundings. 

By committing to a silent retreat with the practice of self-awareness and the attitude of a witness the mind naturally becomes less busy, more focused and clear without effort, revealing deeper understanding and inner contentment.

A documented personal experience "Silence boosts creativity, decision-making and problem-solving" - Wellbeing

The retreat includes:

  • yoga asanas & pranayama become the basis for stillness
  • breath awareness
  • awareness of action & reactions to cultivate equanimity
  • review of the day
  • sitting meditation:  Antar Mouna – attitude of a witness to cultivate equanimity and inner silence
  • Yoga Nidra – deep relaxation for body, mind & emotions 
  • walking meditation using the senses to be present
