About This Event

“Awakening the Timeless Source of Wisdom” Retreat Series
Inner Silence
A Deep meditative Retreat in Beaumont-la-Ferrière, France
(With French-English translations)

“One sees clearly that it is absolutely necessary that the brain, the mind, the
whole system, the organism, must be quiet…” – J. Krishnamurti

The brain loses it sensitivity and vitality through constant noise and chattering. The source of
most of our problems in work, life and relationships is a noisy mind which mechanically lives and
reacts from its past baggage. Habitual reactivity of the mind causes great mental and emotional
suffering. Can the mind withdraw from its automatic reactions and pause? Can it be peaceful and
quiet without force and control? Can the mind learn to have a deep rest and leisure? Can the mind
stop struggling to become something all the time and rest in now? Can we enjoy the beauty of
anonymity, nothingness and aloneness - which is not isolation? How inner silence can be a
foundation for right action, relationship, deep intelligence and creativity? How silence is connected
with inner freedom, joy, love and healing? This retreat is an invitation to uncover and awaken that
timeless source of wisdom inside us through deep inner silence. We are going to explore
existentially the great importance of inner silence in our daily living.

This retreat offers a restful break, a pause for the mind, body and heart that is essential as a foundation for deep learning and transformation. The intention is not to fill our minds with intellectual knowledge but to awaken the profound source of being within, so that we get inspired to live our everyday life from the wellspring of inner stillness. The program includes: inspiring live talks,
ONE OF THE MAIN HIGHLIGHTS OF THE RETREAT IS “MEDITATIVE DIALOGUE AND SELF-INQUIRY.” What we learn here is that a deep dialogue is not an intellectual process of discussion or exchange of lot of words but it can be a compassionate meditative process of self-discovery where words carry the quality of silence and affection as they arise not from the noise of the ego-mind but from a deeper space of wonder and love. The retreat offers a safe, serious, and caring space to discover ourselves, meet our deep essence and look at our whole life in a fresh, creative way, whether we are a seeker, a mindfulness practitioner, a coach, a therapist, an artist, a teacher, a professional from any field, a leader or simply a student of life.
