Delve into a relaxed state of reflection and release in this overnight silent retreat. Learn new ways to calm your mind and relax your body through meditation, yoga, and walking exercises that connect your breath, thoughts, and emotions.
The practice of silence encourages to stop avoiding those nagging thoughts and emotions that keep arising for us and look closely at what our soul may be communicating. It is the silence in this practice that reaps the most rewards for retreatants. The thought of sitting in silence and not speaking can be scary for most of us, and a one-night retreat is the perfect way to ease yourself into a more relaxed and spiritual practice.

What's Included:
• Guided Meditation Practices
• Yin Yoga Class
• Mindful Walking Exercises
• Vegetarian Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner
• 1-Night Glamping Accommodation
