Silence is Golden: Finding Mental Clarity  | ½ Day Silent Retreat

Saturday, May 4, 2024 | 10:00a.m. - 1:00p.m.

Experience a half-day of retreat, meditation and silent reflection in a peaceful environment. 

A silent retreat is an unequaled opportunity to become aware of the peaceful nature of your mind. Through utilizing silence, clear and accessible instructions on how to meditate, and the support of meditating in a group in a meditation center, your practice will deepen tremendously.

This morning retreat will consist of three, thirty-minute guided meditations, with thirty minutes of silence in between each session to enjoy quiet reflection and allow your mind to go deeper into an experience of meaning and peace. 

The last half hour of the morning will be a discussion with time for a question and answer session to help you crystalize what you would like to bring with you from the retreat into your daily life.

Everyone is welcome. No meditation experience is necessary.

About Silence

Silence is not just about not talking, it is about developing an inner quality of stillness.
In silence, we engage with the meditation object in a more intimate way. We stop ‘chatting’ about the Dharma (Buddha’s teachings) from our mouth and start listening to the Dharma from deep within our heart which gives us a special inner experience of the teachings we receive. Penetrating insights arise and since we are able to hold onto them with firm mindfulness we find Dharma experience pervades and nourishes our heart at a very deep level.

During the Breaks

Between retreat sessions take time to relax and carry your experience of peace in the following ways:

  • enjoy a peaceful walk around the Inman Park neighborhood 
  • relax and nourish yourself with a refreshing drink and healthy snack in our café area
  • explore our bookstore and gift shop
  • sit quietly in the meditation room

Meditation session #1 - 10-10:30a.m.
Meditation session #2 - 11-11:30a.m.
Meditation session #3- 12-1p.m. includes time for question and answer
