What happens at a meeting?
Meetings in Stillness are a guided space for presence, silence, self-inquiry, and truth. They usually begin with a short introductory talk followed by 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 stillness.
The main purpose of the meetings is to create a safe and supportive environment where together we can rest and be held within the loving embrace of presence and explore ourselves more deeply from there. The meetings usually end with a period of silence.
Although each meeting is spontaneous topics that often arise are self-realisation, meditation, self-inquiry, inner child & trauma healing, high sensitivity, conscious relationships, embracing our humanness, presence, redemptive love, surrender, and life after awakening.
Everybody is welcome, and no previous experience is necessary.
What happens at a retreat?
Retreats offer the possibility to spend an extended period of time together within a safe, supportive, and committed group environment to focus exclusively on meditation, self-inquiry, silence, 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 fully catered others are not. In between the meetings we are usually together in silence.
Retreats are a direct invitation to self-discovery. They are for those who have a deep inner calling to realise their own true nature They are an opportunity deepen into Being consciousness. They are for sincere seekers of truth.
Before attending a retreat it is recommended that you first attend a number of open meetings online or in-person.
'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'
