Program

The retreat starts at 12 March at 2 pm. You will have lunch together and get to know each other, there will be some explanation about the retreat and there is time to land. Around 4 pm the silence starts with the first meditation. On the evening of the 15th of March you will break the silence with a sharing circle. On the 16th after breakfast the retreat ends. It is possible to stay an extra night before and / or after the retreat.

Retreat schedule

The retreat has a gentle schedule, beside yoga and meditations it allows time for walking, resting and connecting to nature. There are no goals to reach, you are invited to just be where you are, fully alive in the moment. In the meditations and the dharma talks Ellen guides you into the silence. During meditation you are aware of your experience here and now, knowing there is no need to judge or improve anything. You observe how sensations, thoughts, feelings, and mind states are passing by, changing all the time. Great insight and a depth of awareness can rise offering inner peace, harmony and joy.

You will start the days at 8 a.m. waking up the body with a nice yoga class followed by a delicious healthy breakfast. In the morning period there will be a guided meditation on themes such as breath and body, the five sense gates, the four elements, feelings, and thoughts and metta (loving kindness). In the afternoon, Ellen will give a talk offering inspiration and understanding. The rest of the day you will meditate in silence in one of the four postures: sitting, walking, standing, and reclining both indoor in the meditation yurt and outdoor in nature.

The retreat is open to people who have meditation experience as well as to people for whom this is a new experience, the only condition is that you are motivated to spend the days in entire silence, meditate a lot and dive into your own process. The retreat will be guided in English.

Silent walk, meditative dance, and mantra’s

On the third day you will make a yatra, a silent walk in nature. Walking in silence will help to deeply connect with nature within and nature without. The rhythm of walking calms body and mind. One evening you will have a meditative dance and on the last evening you will wake up your voices with a singing circle and a sharing.
