Silence is the Great Healer
The world is a master of distraction.
With constant distraction we shatter our awareness
and weaken our conscious power.
This is a day with no demands,
unplug from your devices and to-do list.
Allow your senses to purify with the natural elements of ocean, wind and earth.
Detox your mind and regain inner stillness, clarity and wisdom.
Renew your whole being

It was my first silent retreat experience. I felt nervous and excited to participate in this journey, not knowing what to expect. Once there, being in the now, just doing and not doing simultaneously was an awakening of emotions, thoughts and ideas. It felt so freeing, so beautiful and calm. I felt so here. After the retreat I felt elevated and fulfilled. I felt so much more grounded to mother earth.
If you feel the need to reconnect with yourself, with your emotions, your spirituality, with mother earth, I would highly recommend a silent retreat with Shanti!
The best way to recharge your battery is to take part of such a day.
Everything is done to give you the opportunity to dig inside and be one with the elements.
The location is peaceful and beautiful, Shanti gives clear instructions and guidance, the silence does its thing and everything combine gives you the lesson you need to pursue your own path.
Thank you Shanti.
First of all, I'm a 58-year-old woman who has never been "into" yoga, and I haven't exactly spent my life in spiritual pursuits. But I was invited to attend Shanti's silent yoga retreat by a friend, and I've been contemplating spirituality in relation to my health a lot lately, so I thought, "why not?"
Don't let the yoga part scare you if you're not bendy...the yoga was very gentle and actually felt good.
I had also never successfully meditated. I, like so many of us, have never been able to get my mind to stop thinking about all the things I "should" be doing instead of meditating. This day, I followed some of Shanti's cues and it really helped me "tune out" the outside world and let me look inside. The location was stunning. An open-air building right on the sea. There were several areas along the shore with protected waters where we could safely bathe in the sea if we wanted, or you could just sit and look at it. Shanti offered fruit smoothies and a fruit lunch for those who wanted it and there were a couple of simple craft type activities if one cared to partake.
At the end of the 8 hours of silence (which FLEW by), Shanti asked us to journal what we thought about the retreat.
Some were very eloquent in their thoughts, one woman wrote a beautiful poem about it. I just shared this: in my 58 years of traveling the world, working on a high-stress career and chasing the commercial dream as so many of us do, I had never spent 8 hours just working on my self. I wrote that as two separate words on purpose...I don't mean working on myself. I mean my self.
What our fast paced world really needs is for us each to spent a little bit of time working on our selves once in a while. Phones, TVs and computers off.
Attending a silent retreat is a great reset and a fantastic way to learn how to do that.
Thank you Shanti...this was a wonderful experience.
Thank you for organizing the silent retreat today. By disconnecting with the outer world I felt such peace.
My experience was amazing as I was able to experience the NOW, not thinking of yesterday or tomorrow!
My conclusion, SILENCE IS HEALING & embrace the simple things in life. Love,
I will cherish this experience forever!
This silent retreat shifted me from distracted to focused. Gratitude flooded through me as I absorbed the surroundings.
The energy and guidance was exactly what my soul needed.
I feel so renewed and refreshed,
Thank you Shanti
