“ Above anything, welcome silence, for it brings fruits that no tongue can speak of, neither can it be explained. ” Isaac van Nineveh
This quote reflects my own experience with silence: after being in silence for a while, I experience the most incredible moments of insight, joy, beauty, love and connection.
An unexpected and wonderful gift every time.
But those moments do not come easily: it can be difficult embracing silence.
I encounter restlessness in my head, in my body. And moments of boredom, pain, sadness and loneliness. Illusions, structures and everything else that is taken for granted disappear, and I no longer have anything to hold on to. I am totally thrown back on myself and nature around me.
And then, all of a sudden, it’s like the sun breaks through, water starts flowing, the world starts singing…while I sing along. Colours are more beautiful, flavours and scents more intense, sensations feel like a caress. And in my heart, there is room for everything there is. Exactly so.
It is a pleasure that our new place in Italy offers the space and the beauty for our silent retreats. Terra Saggia offers an oasis of peace and quiet, of beautiful nature.
Meditation sessions alternate with activities in nature, bodywork and ‘time to play’.
There is a good balance between space for self and space for being together.
