Silent Meditation Retreat
THURSDAY JULY 18 – THURSDAY JULY 25
Connecting with sacred and ancient wisdom within ourselves can help to bring a deeper meaning to life, and more peace of mind.
The Silent Meditation Retreat on the Sunshine Coast, conducted by Br. Shraddhamrita Chaitanya is designed to reinforce existing spiritual practices while providing the foundation for a lifetime of meditation practice.
The focus of this retreat is to go deeper into the traditional Advaita Vedanta (non-dualism) meditation teachings & techniques, using Amma’s teachings and meditation techniques as a guide.
Benefits can include clarity and strength of mind to achieve your goals, staying centred in an ever-changing world and overcoming stress and tension.
This retreat is suitable for all levels of experience in meditation from beginner to advanced. We will alternate between guided meditation, silent sitting and silent walking sessions.
All aspects of meditation from yogic concentration meditation to Advaita non-dual knowledge meditation will be explored in depth. Amma’s unique IAM35 meditation technique, which incorporates a combination of yoga, pranayama and meditative visualisation, will also be taught.
We have managed to keep costs low to make it accessible for as many people as possible. There are various on-site accommodation options which are likely to fill up fast so please book as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.
