The Experience

Each year beginners and advanced meditators from around the world gather for this sell-out event. With exquisite facilitation under the direction of gifted retreat leader Rev. Paulette, guests co-create and participate in a safe, sacred space to experience just the right amount of soul-nourishing mindfulness and meditation practices through retreat programs designed to usher participants deeply into the stillness of the silence.

You, too, can take be part of this exceptional retreat and allow it to nudge you into a well-crafted journey to inner stillness. Not only is it likely you’ll be transformed but, once you’ve touched the stillness, you may actually walk away wishing you had been given even more time to engage in holy listening and Silence.

This retreat is designed to:

  • Safely immerse participants into a dedicated time of silence, reflection and renewal;

  • Provide meditation and mindfulness tips and tools to help participants be at peace with a chattering, roving mind, and access practical gems which can be used in daily living, once the retreat has ended;

  • Provide ample spaces to experience holy silence as well as time for individual practice;

  • Create space for silent interconnectedness with like-minded people on a profound level; out of which deep lasting friendships are often formed;

  • Be soothed and serenaded by gentle, heart-inspiring music that touches and expands the senses of the soul;

  • Invite an experience of centered calmness, as we unplug from our devices and step away from the myriad distractions that tug at our attention on a daily basis.
