40 people in silence together for 40 hours. Each retreat, I am realising the lack of silence in today’s society, how we are so used to noice, to instagram updates, to having a podcasts in our ears, to constantly chatting with each other… that we have almost forgot the beauty of letting go of words and phones to just arrive inside.
My experience, after all these retreats with Yogiakademin, is that we all have a deep longing to meet ourselves and others in a more real way BUT since we are so use to the noice it is scary at first to turn everything off so we need some discipline and the help of a group.
When we manage to stick with the silence for a while, we are most probably remembering how heeling it is and how much a part of us always longs for it.
The quality of the silence is something we can always trust. Something that constantly is guiding us back to ourselves, to our true beings. I know it is difficult, cause this thing in my hand is sooo crazy addictive, but let’s try to prioritise to turn of the phone and just be with ourselves in SILENCE some moments everyday.
