Program

During a Nâm retreat of silence, you observe total silence and avoid wordless communication as much as possible. People often search for relief of stress in taking time off, in doing something else like going on a vacation. However, as soon as they are back in regular life, everything is as before. But the problem is not about what you do but how you do it. Your retreat will start at 5:00 p.m. on the day of arrival (check-in is possible from 3:00 p.m.) and end at 11:00 a.m. on the day of departure.

The Nâm retreat

You merely need to remember what you are by transcendental nature. This means you have to get rid of what you are not or rather you should get rid of illusions about yourselves. These illusions are very deep-rooted. For most people, illusions are what they consider as real, while what is real is usually considered idle dreams, or fake. This silent retreat will help you to focus and attune, it is a powerful way to unwind, relax and find your essence.

Why a Nâm retreat of silence?

In order to deal differently with regular life situations, you need to reprogram the so-called 'habitual programs of perception', which are like apps that you create by the way you live. Subsequently, these apps determine how you access your world, in other words: how you relate to living. These apps are unconscious and you cannot reprogram them without changing the way you think.

Meditation

Meditation is not self-analysis, it is not concentration, it is not exploring your feelings; it is losing the illusion of what you are as a separate entity living in a world. It is the opening of Awareness of what you are, as a living human being. Meditation within the context of LivingNâm is about creating a space in which the wholeness embracing can demonstrate as being the essence of each instant of living. This is the transformation of the task of living. At birth, you enter a state of ignorance in order to transform this ignorance into wisdom by means of the living that you do. Meditation is living in attunement.

Silence

It is essential to reserve periods of the day to remain silent and allow life, through you, to take care of itself. In the same way that dreaming is essential in ‘arranging’ the impressions of living, so sitting in silence is an advanced way for lifting transformation to a different level. The Nâm retreat is an optimal method for making this ‘doing nothing’ as productive as possible. That what it is productive for depends entirely on the intent with which you use it.

A transcendental psychology

A Nâm retreat of silence is based on transcendental psychology that is rooted in primordial wisdom and based on what you are as an experiencing human sense of being and how you can most beneficially relate to the larger whole of which you are an integral part.

Purpose and instruments of the Nâm retreat of silence

Just suddenly being silent generally leads to a racing mind. Calming such a mind just by silence would require much longer than the relatively short time available for a retreat. Therefore, during a Nâm retreat of silence, you receive instruments that act as a catalyst and speed up the necessary inner alchemy of reprogramming. The aim of this alchemy is to enlighten your daily life and guide it, from within, towards progressing degrees of unconditional wellbeing in living and ultimately in post-living.

Well-being is the potential of all living. Next to inner instruments that you use individually, five times a day the participants in a Nâm retreat of silence gather for meditation or recitation. Such traditional instruments are very suitable for reprogramming. The habitual programs of perception are unconscious; you cannot know them and you cannot manage them directly.

They appear only in the way in which you deal with regular life situations. With the mindfulness reprogramming that is activated by taking a Nâm retreat of silence, you will gradually deal with life in a different way; a way that feels better and that may eventually become your natural state of unconditional well-being.

For everyone who is seriously involved in a spiritual quest

Regular retreats are very important for everybody who is seriously involved in a spiritual quest. The philosophy behind LivingNâm is transcendental psychology. It is not religious or spiritual in a sectarian way. Therefore anybody, regardless of religion, spirituality, secularism, or ideology can equally benefit from Nâm retreat of silence.

Location

The Asharum is situated in the Ardennes of Belgium, close to the village of Erezée in the province of Luxembourg. Yoginâm chose this place as a spiritual center because of its surrounding beauty and the tranquility of the area, where life is still lived at a quiet pace. The house itself is situated on the leylines of Wéris; an area where many megalithic structures are the vibrant remnants of an ancient spiritual past.
