MAUNA MEANS SILENCE AND SILENCE HAS A VOICE OF ITS OWN.
Take these few days away from your daily responsibilities, switch off, rejuvenate and explore a different way to still the mind and become more present.
Most of the days in our lives, we are lost in the matrix of our thoughts, beliefs, opinions and preferences, a state where we experience inner division in which there’s an identification with the so many voices in our head, and that is how we walk away from our natural state.
There is this dimension of ourselves, which is deeper than our obvious form and it’s vital for our own survival. This deeper dimension is actually our natural state which is the never-ending openness of being—in other words, consciousness itself. This consciousness exists prior to thinking and feeling and It’s what is always here when you stop giving all your attention to the activity of the mind. It’s what happens when you are immersed in beauty, when you’re still in nature, when you’re running or dancing or making love. The most magical truth, is that we can train ourselves, our minds, to reach this state on demand.
The path to this mind-training is meditation, stillness and silence.
The Silent retreat is the opportunity to explore and notice what keeps our attention at the surface, what holds us back from going down into our innermost depth and to practice surrender while being held in the loving spaciousness of the container of the retreat itself.
The invitation to surrender into the silence at the core of our being, is a coming home to our natural state. And when we move from this silence into the world, the rewards are revolutionary!
