Day-Long Silent Retreat
- Return to the Sanctuary of the Heart
A Day-Long Silent Retreat
Sunday December 4th, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Facilitated by Ellen Shapiro and Joey Doherty
As we approach the winter solstice, the days become shorter with less
light and the darkness of night increases. We are often called to go
within and seek the silence of our soul. In the midst of the
business of the holiday season, we can pause to breathe, to reflect,
and to turn our focus within. Come join us on a silent journey inward
to explore the stillness of our being and renew ourselves. This is a
gift we can give to ourselves and then share with others. This
retreat will be a time of reconnecting our heart with our souls, of
experiencing the inner peace that flows within our core. We will use
elements of yoga, walking and seated meditation, journaling, conscious
eating, creativity, rest, and reflection to explore and embody our own
personal journey. Relax, renew, replenish, and experience the
powerful healing and fulfillment that comes from attuning and
listening within while practicing intentional silence.
We will meet on the evening of Friday, December 2 from 7:30- 9 p.m. to
get acquainted and go over the practical details and structure of
the day. We will spend Sunday in silence followed by a short sharing
and integration at the end of the day.
No prior experience necessary. Please bring layered clothes, walking
shoes, two pillows and a blanket, a journal, lunch, water, and a snack
to share. Space is limited, so please register early. Cost is $75
to $95, sliding scale. The workshop will be held at Namaste Yoga Center.
