‘In silence the inner world and the outer world melt into One’
Observing regular periods of silence can be very beneficial. The modern lifestyle with its flow of impulses often allows for little space to wind down. And yet such winding down is very important for the system. Without it the arranging and digesting of both the conscious and unconscious impulses remains incomplete. This may result in stress, anxiety, burnout, loss of meaning, depression and a host of other problems.
Therefore the Asharum offers several possibilities to be in silence, these weekends are one of those possibilities.
During these weekends absolute silence throughout the day will be maintained. In order to support this there will be a meditation programme and breathing instructions.
The following weekends are reserved for this:
November 20-26 Nâm Retreat of Silence (5 days!)
Februari 28 – March 1
July 17-19 (summer programme)
