WHAT IS A
SILENT MEDITATION RETREAT?
A silent meditation retreat combines a set of guided meditation sessions interspersed with free time where you can also engage in private meditation in any of the meditation facilities at the center. Most commonly, our silent meditation retreats are scheduled to last for three days- a perfect time frame for a getaway that provides a sense of peace and tranquility.
With the help of experienced meditation and yoga instructors, you will be guided through the fundamental aspects of silent meditation and you will have a chance to practice every new principle you learn with a group and in private. Our guided meditation retreats are suitable for both beginners and those who have an experienced practice.
Here is a look at some of the programs and opportunities you’ll find at Prama’s Meditation Retreats:
Each meditation retreat begins with a time of instruction, demonstration and training. Meditation is the most important aspect of this event and you will have ample time to practice various types of meditation techniques. If you are already used to meditation, you will be encouraged to use the techniques you have learned before. Individuals who are new to the art of meditation will be given plenty of help and support to learn and use the techniques taught by the instructors.
REJUVENATING YOGA CLASSES
We incorporate yoga classes in our silent meditation retreats that will help relax the body and achieve deeper understanding. Our yoga teachers will help you get the most out of your practice, whether you are a beginner who has never practiced yoga or you have an established yoga practice.
Among the benefits and amenities that Prama offers retreat participants, healthy, nutritious meals are of the utmost importance. Healthy meals and habits are the key to weight loss and a healthier lifestyle. One of the greatest benefits of coming to a meditation retreat with vegetarian meals is that you will return home with improved digestive health. We have the capacity to accommodate all dietary restrictions including a gluten free diet, just let us know in advance so we can prepare for you!
