the ancient practice of silence takes you deep inside your soul.

Imagine having absolute peace and quiet to yourself. Beautiful right? Even just a few days in silence, away from it all, and being in a natural setting away from the city, work, stress, and responsibilities can make a big difference. Your time is now.


Silence is the state of the soul. When you are silent from identifying with your thoughts, mind, emotions and even your body, in deep silence you can be in tune with your soul. Despite the outer “sounds of the world” also known as distractions, there are also distractions within you in different forms such as negative thoughts, stress, anxiety, feelings that overwhelm you, emotions that have not been dealt with, feeling haunted by past mistakes, failures, etc. and they keep you from knowing and connecting to your true self. A silence retreat gives you the opportunity to be in an introspective state, to go beyond the inner and outer distractions, and simply to be in tune with your soul. When your inner and outer worlds are silent, you feel true peace and freedom.

About the SILENT Retreat

Finally, serenity, silence, and stillness.

Be in a bubble of spirituality, peace, and quiet. During your silent retreat, you will be able to quiet your mind and thoughts. When in silence, you are able to observe your thoughts and feel your emotions. When you do, you give yourself the opportunity to work on them. You will stay in simple and clean rooms where you can relax, cozy up with a book, write endlessly in that journal you’ve been waiting to fill up, view amazing sunsets and sunrises across Siddhayatan’s rolling hills, fill your lungs with pollution-free air, add a course or yoga class (see schedule), and get to participate in healing chants in the evenings. While in silence, you will be able to tune out the world and enter your inner world – that world that has long needed your attention, love, and care. A silent retreat at Siddhayatan is a perfect way to relax, let go, and feel at peace with an intense spiritual experience.

Course FAQ:

Is the silent retreat totally silent?

We provide an unstructure silent retreat experience. Although we do require silence at breakfast, it is up to you how strict you'd like to be with your silence. Some guests still listen to conversations, while others sit by themselves. Some still read and text message and simply refrain from physically speaking. It's up to you.

What is the silence button?

You will get a "I am in silence button" to wear so that other guests will know you are unable to respond.

How can I ask the teacher a question in class if I'm in silence. Can I still participate?

Yes, when speaking with the monk or during class time you are welcome to speak or write your question. Once class is over, you can enter your silence. We do not consider reciting mantras speaking since it is a spiritual sound.
