Silence & Sound Retreat

“There is something beyond our mind which abides in silence within our mind. It is the supreme mystery beyond thought. Let one's mind and one's subtle body rest upon that.”

Maitri Upanishad




A field of silence is created for those who wish to dive deeper within themselves through the practice of sacred sound and mantra. A daily sound practice gives you the chance to really go beyond the practice, into the inner silence that lies within you. The goal of this retreat is, therefore, to offer you the opportunity to heal on a deep level, strengthen or establish your sound practice and discover who you are beyond the many layers of inner-vibration.


What does it offer?


The main focus of this retreat is the connection with sound, practice, healing and self observation, offering just a little theory as a support for the inner experience. In the field of silence there is plenty of time and space to relax and turn the attention inwards. The food and diverse herbal drinks and aromas acompanning the practice will be consciously chosen from an ayurvedic perspective to provide harmonization and serenity for body and mind, therefore enhancing our sound and healing practice. The venue, surrounded by fields and forest, is a peaceful abode from which silent nature walks will be made. Having over 10 years of experience in the field of healing sounds, Victor G. Cruz and Surya are sharing a daily lived practice.
