About This Event

Riversong - 1880 Les Plans-sur-Bex - route de Pont-de-Nant 8 - Switzerland
“In the light of silence, all problems are dissolved.” -       J. Krishnamurti 

The brain loses it sensitivity and vitality through constant noise and chattering. The source of most of our problems in work, life and relationships is a noisy mind which mechanically lives and reacts from its past baggage. Habitual reactivity of the mind causes great mental and emotional suffering. Can the mind withdraw from its automatic reactions and pause? Can it be peaceful and quiet without force and control? Can the mind learn to have a deep rest and leisure? Can the mind stop struggling to become something all the time and rest in now? Can we enjoy the beauty of anonymity, nothingness and aloneness - which is not isolation? How inner silence can be a foundation for right action, relationship, deep intelligence and creativity? How silence is connected
with inner freedom, joy, love and healing? This retreat is an invitation to uncover and awaken that timeless source of wisdom inside us through deep inner silence. We are going to explore existentially the great importance of inner silence in our daily living. 

·       This retreat offers a restful break, a pause for the mind, body and heart that is essential as a foundation for deep learning and transformation. It will provide the condition for creating, all along our journey together, a meditative state of mind essential for a serious inner enquiry.
·       The intention is not to fill our minds with intellectual knowledge but to awaken the profound source of being within, so that we get inspired to live our everyday life from the wellspring of inner stillness.
·       One of the main highlights of the retreat is “Meditative & Transformative Self-inquiry.” What we learn here is that a deep self-inquiry is not an intellectual process of discussion or exchange of lot of words where ego-mind is the centre-stage but it can be a compassionate meditative process of self-discovery where words carry the quality of silence and affection as they arise not from the noise of the ego-mind but from a deeper space of wonder and love. 
·       Inspiring live talks
·       Exercises in a one-to-one setting and small group exchanges. 
·       Meditations and meditative walks in nature.


For those willing to go deeper into the journey of self-discovery and transformation. For anyone who sees the importance of living from a higher level of presence. 

The retreat offers a safe, serious and caring space to discover ourselves, meet our deep essence and look at our whole life in a fresh, creative way, whether we are a seeker, a mindfulness practitioner, a coach, a therapist, an artist, a teacher, a professional from any field, a leader, a change-maker, a parent or simply a student of life.
