Silent Retreat

A WEEKEND IN COMPLETE SILENCE AND QUIETUDE (WITH VEGAN FOOD)

We have temporarily suspended our silence retreat program due to the COVID-19 crisis.

Our silent retreats focus on a personal and intensive process through ancient yoga techniques and classical meditation to improve the relationship we have with ourselves, all under a routine of deep introspection and conscious physical movement.

Human qualities such as love, intellect, creative power, beauty, artistic mind or compassion, are fundamental pillars of personal evolution to be strengthen with reflective silence, thus developing a kind of wisdom that would otherwise remain hidden in society.

IN THESE RETREATS

I. We keep silence for a weekend.

II. We work with classical meditation techniques along with ancient yoga exercises. Ancient yoga is a poetic way to access the inner human field; An ancestral approach done by Finca Elefante from the most classical teachings of yoga and meditation.

III. Silence is practiced based on classical aspects of ancient psychology according to Samkhya (oldest philosophical structure of humanity and yoga’s theoretical framework)

IV. Work with personal dynamics aimed at self-knowledge is encouraged.

V. Food is completely vegan, especially designed for deep meditation processes.
