UP NORTH SILENT RETREAT

Before the Holidays arrive, take a moment to nurture your Self, to set your Intention, and to find your Still Point in Peace.
What could be more precious than time away, free from your daily roles, without obligations, schedules, or time demands? Add to this an environment of sacred space, steeped in nature, with great food set before you, and a space of your own with no environmental static.

Arrive Friday to your own private room and bath. We will meet Friday evening for orientation and contemplative guidance, followed by our evening meal. We will close the day with a brief yoga and meditation practice.

Dorothy and Sandra will offer direction and guidance at Friday evening's group practice concerning your time in silence. Silence will begin with the meditation on Friday evening.

On Saturday we will silently practice the 8 limbs of yoga, including meditation and asana practice, in several outlined sessions. In your free time, you may choose to stay within your own experience, in your room, walking the grounds and outdoor labyrinth, attending the chapel for prayer, or in the reading room for contemplation, or the communal room for additional yoga and/or meditation practice.

Your time is your own. Although there will be structure offered, you may design your weekend to suit you own personal needs and intuition. Nothing will be required of you.

Two sit-down meals are offered on Saturday, while breakfast will be offered buffet-style. Guests are encouraged to bring favorite treats or snacks to share throughout the weekend, and any specialized food items for your own health and comfort. 

On Sunday we will break silence after our morning practice. Our last meal together is Sunday brunch. We'll be talking!

Upon registration you will receive an itinerary for the Up North Silent Retreat, a full list of items you may wish to bring, (and those not to bring), relevant reading materials, and a location map. 

Dorothy and Sandra sincerely open their hearts to you in offering this profound experience of pratyahara, inner-focused silence. Please join us.

$458, all inclusive. Please register at www.yoga4.net.  Namaste.
