The Silent Retreats have been offered in Australia by Brahmachari Shraddhamrita Chaitanya since 2015. These retreats have been warmly welcomed in Byron Bay, Melbourne, Sydney, Sunshine Coast, Adelaide and Canberra.

The Australian Silent Retreats range from Daylong Programs to 7-Day Immersions. Many people have taken this opportunity to enter silence to reconnect with their inner voice.

Depending on the length of the silent retreat, the programs can include:

  • Meditation – sitting, walking, guided & silent
  • Satsangs (spiritual talks)
  • Chanting
  • Yoga
  • Nature walks through forest trails
  • Rest and time for reflection
  • Delicious and nourishing vegetarian meals

In the longer retreats, all aspects of meditation from yogic concentration meditation to Advaita non-dual knowledge meditation are be explored in depth. The IAM35 meditation, a unique combination of yoga, pranayama and visualization, designed by Amma is also be taught from day four.

Connecting with sacred and ancient wisdom within ourselves can help to bring a deeper meaning to life, and more peace of mind.

The focus of this retreat is to go deeper into the traditional Advaita Vedanta (non-dualism) meditation teachings & techniques, using Amma’s teachings and meditation techniques as a guide.

Benefits can include clarity and strength of mind to achieve your goals, staying centred in an ever-changing world and overcoming stress and tension.

This retreat is suitable for all levels of experience in meditation from beginner to advanced. We will alternate between guided meditation, silent sitting and silent walking sessions.

All aspects of meditation from yogic concentration meditation to Advaita non-dual knowledge meditation will be explored in depth. Amma’s unique IAM35 meditation technique, which incorporates a combination of yoga, pranayama and meditative visualisation, will also be taught.
