With Advaita Stoian
Start the New Year in deep silence. Awake your inner soul; go deep into your spiritual heart and its mysteries through 8 days of silence at the beginning of the year. Discover your true essence and the highest immortal self, Atman – our true divine nature, which is pure consciousness, the silent witness within us, through deep meditation. In the silence, which is, a result of deep meditation, radiates the light of our hearts and fills our whole being.
In this Silent Retreat, we will focus on the awakening of the spiritual heart as well as the revealing of the highest immortal Self, the Atman, which is a true spiritual journey where we get to know ourselves – a knowledge which gradually opens up to the participant, as well as an opportunity of guidance and counselling in the first preparatory stage on the steep, spiritual journey upwards.

A silencemind reflects the light of the spiritual Heart
In this 8days silent retreat we will practice the appropriate techniques and learn the path to achieving the profound awakening of our spiritual Heart. Thus we learn to dissociate from the agitation of our mind which enchains us and discover that our home is and always was the sublime serenity of the spiritual Heart.
Beyond meditations and sessions of Hatha Yoga, the program also includes guided meditations, inspiring materials for awakening the soul, exemplifications of spiritual states and much more.
The retreat also includes special spiritual activities kept together on the night of the new year, helping us to charge the moment of the beginning of the new year so that it will unfold in the most beneficial and harmonious manner.
The journey into the spiritual heart is in many spiritual traditions considered to be the first and most important step on thespiritual path. The awakening of the spiritual heart will greatly change the way we look at ourselves, our life and the world; it takes us to another level of existence, which is characterized by deep harmony and love.
During the entire 8 days a rule of total silence will be observed by all the participants in all common spaces/rooms, facilitating the calming down of the mind and the orienting of the attention inwards.
All presentations are in English(translation into other languages are also available, as appropriate).
