Program

Itinerary

The retreat starts at 2 p.m. on the first day (pick ups are arranged at 1 p.m. from the train station in Xativa).

You will have lunch together and get to know each other, there will be some explanation about the retreat and there is time to land. Around 4 p.m., the silence starts with the first meditation.

You start the days at 8 a.m. waking up the body with a nice yoga class followed by a delicious healthy breakfast.

In the morning, there will be a guided meditation on themes such as breath and body, the five sense gates, the four elements, feelings and thoughts, and Metta (loving-kindness).

In the afternoon, Ellen will give a talk offering inspiration and understanding. The rest of the day, you meditate in silence in one of the four postures of sitting, walking, standing, and reclining both indoor in the meditation yurt and outdoor in nature.

On the third day, you will make a yatra, a silent walk in nature. Walking in silence will help to deeply connect with nature within and nature without.

The rhythm of walking calms body and mind. One evening, you will have a meditative dance and on the last evening, you will wake up your voices with a singing circle and a sharing.

On the last evening, you will break the silence with a sharing circle. After breakfast on the final date the retreat ends.
