What happens at a meeting?
Meetings in Stillness are a guided space for presence, silence, self-inquiry, and truth. Meetings usually begin with a short talk and a guided meditation into our true nature. There is then time and space to explore any questions you may have, share your experience, or simply be together in presence.
The main purpose of the meetings is to create a safe and supportive environment where we can explore ourselves deeply on the levels of heart, mind, and gut.
Although each meeting is different depending on who is there, topics that often arise are self-realisation, meditation, self-inquiry, inner child & trauma healing, conscious relationships, embracing our humanness, presence, surrender, and life after awakening.
Everybody is welcome, and no previous experience is necessary.
Meetings often end with a period of silence.
What happens at a retreat?
Retreats offer the possibility to spend a longer period of time together in a safe and supportive, group environment to focus exclusively on meditation, self-inquiry, and inner contemplation.
Retreats vary in length from a weekend to a week. The daily schedule includes satsangs (meetings in truth), silent sittings, guided meditations, group sharing, dialogues, deep rest, movement practices, music, and meditative walks in nature. Some retreats are residential and catered. In between the meetings we are mostly in silence.
Retreats are a direct invitation to self-discovery and are for those who have a deep inner calling to realise their own true nature. They are an opportunity to establish more deeply in our true nature without day-to-day distractions.
Before attending a retreat it is important that you first attend several open meetings online or in-person to ensure you are ready for a retreat.
'My only wish when holding meetings is to be empty enough, still enough, and present enough to be able to truly hear you. And in truly hearing you may we together discover the silent presence within which is the source of all refuge, knowledge, and wisdom. Then there is no teacher, no student, and no teaching. Nothing remains other than which is naturally arising in this moment, and the unchanging Presence which effortlessly witnesses it all'
