Silent Retreat

August 18 @ 1:00 pm - August 20 @ 4:00 pm

Imagine, realized peace. Take a break for yourself and give yourself the space and time for personal attention and reflection. Dive deep and experience the peace, calmness, and total relaxation found at your center. Cultivate spiritual and physical health by learning to concentrate the mind, strengthen willpower and deepen awareness of consumption in a structured, supportive environment. Daily meditation and extended silence with the support of experienced teachers in a tranquil environment will bring you all this and more.

Each day includes sitting and walking meditations, yoga, mindfulness talks, and daily activities that are led by Moksha Yoga Center and Stonehouse Farm staff. No previous meditation experience is required, but you are asked to abide in silence.
