Join Adyashanti on this silent retreat and bring a little light into the world by wholeheartedly responding to the call of your true nature.

Adyashanti says silence is not the opposite of noise. In fact, it's a part of who you are.

Retreat is an unobstructed opportunity to plunge into the heart of existence. It’s a chance to take time for committed inquiry, silence, meditation, and contemplation—to listen and respond to the call of our true nature.

When we come on retreat we make a commitment to truth, to life, and to each other. We retreat from the numerous ways we avoid life and ourselves, and instead plunge into the awakened life of freedom and love. We immerse ourselves in the spiritual life, turning away from unreality in all of its various forms and turning toward the direct experience of existence as a unified whole. Then we bring that wholeness, love and freedom back with us into our daily lives.

Retreat is a true communion of souls who share the intention for the divine reality of things to reveal itself. In this sense, the call of retreat is of immense importance. It is a way of responding to and embodying the spiritual impulse in a deep and committed way both for our own benefit and the benefit of all beings everywhere. For when one conscious being awakens and evolves, it contributes to the awakening and evolution of the whole.
