Love Arising From Stillness

5-Day Silent Residential Retreat

May 5 - 10, 2019
Omega Institute
Rhinebeck, NY

Learn how to harness the nourishing and revealing power of silence in this 5-day retreat with Sharon Landrith.

go to omega institute's webpage for details of the retreat and to register - stay tuned for more information.

Silence is the basis and the background of everything. We are an expression of this primordial silence and stillness. But the habits of our mind overlay this simple truth and keep us from experiencing ourselves as a full-spectrum human being.

In this silent retreat, we awaken to our true nature and experience the deep nourishment that comes with this realization. As we recognize and embody our true nature, our conditioning naturally dissolves and we see that when we rest in silence we can move into anything in life, including chaos and sorrow, with a sense of ease and well-being.

Through periods of guided and silent meditations, satsang, and question-and-answer sessions, we learn that deep inquiry is not something the mind does, but the process of love perceiving its own nature through your physical form.

The retreat is open to everyone willing to put aside past memories and beliefs and open to the path of truth.

You will go to Omega Institute's website for details of the retreat and to register, once the 2019 retreat is posted.
