Cultivate stillness and strength. Immerse yourself in the nature of BEING. Rest and rejuvenate. Nurture that which feeds true harmony and fulfilment within you. Soak in the serene atmosphere given by silent practices. Enhance balance by reconnecting to your inner essence and the sacredness within that flourishes when we learn to rest in stillness.
Go deeper within in a peaceful, retreat-like atmosphere with the support of experienced teachers and alongside other like-minded souls that yearn for silence and stillness.
Structure of the retreat
We will meet for the daily program in our new beautiful yoga center in Älvsjö, located in a peaceful area with lots of green around. It is located nearby Fruängen tunnelbana station. After the daily program finishes you return to your home and rest over night there and come back in the morning for the continuation of the program.
For an optimal experience we highly recommend that you keep silence after the daily program, so it is a good idea to inform the people you live with about the retreat. It is not a must, but deepens the effects if it is done in this way. We also recommend to eliminate the use of computer, smartphones and reading of newspapers, watching tv or listening to music in these days, as much as possible. The yoga center will be a mobile free zone in this time and practicing mauna (silence) will be mandatory in the center. You can however communicate briefly or ask questions to the teacher or other participants through handwritten notes.
NEW! 2 darkroom meditation sessions
This retreat we will offer the chance to go very deep within – with 2 sessions that will be done in complete physical darkness.
There are many reasons to why the ancient yogis and wise men around the world recommended periodical retreats in total darkness. It has among other things, multiple benefits for mind, body, soul and spirit that even modern science has now confirmed.
Our unconscious perceptions are what binds us to the outside world. When we stay in darkness for longer periods of time, one of our most vividly used senses, the sense of sight, is cancelled, and the normal agitations of the mind silence very fast. Thus when the mind becomes silent, the presence of the heart emerges, together with euphoric serenity, peace, contentment, gratitude, love and spiritual aspiration.
Sitting in a dark room we are presented with the unique possibility to easily access our soul.
During this retreat we will offer 2 such meditation sessions

This retreat will be guided by Aurora Georgijevic, with over 20 years of experience in both yoga and tantra. The practice of silent retreat has been a deep calling of her soul and over the last 20 years she has done several longer retreats (up to a month) in solitude with an intense practice of meditation, yoga and other techniques. She has been guided and taught by some of the worlds foremost teachers in meditation and spirituality. This led to profound transformations and realizations in her being that she would like to share with others, helping people to discover the light within.
