A weekend dedicated to the perception of oneself and to the purifications of mind, body and spirit.
Noble Silence is essential during the retreat and its continuity is a fundamental success factor.
The Noble Silence is also at the level of looks and gestures.
The practice of Silence plays a vital role in spiritual life. It gives the possibility to the seeker to access his inter-world world, entirely hidden from the material world.
The purpose of Silence is not to have a state of emptiness and passivity, but on the contrary, increases the concentration of our power of thought. When we are in unison with ourselves, all our aspirations and all our ideas work harmoniously. Silence expands our superior nature.
Through the practice of silence and meditation, we will increase our level of mental concentration until we create a space to reconnect with our spirit.
The degree of mental concentration thus achieved will allow us to penetrate progressively in our body/mind, developing through direct experience a deeper understanding of reality.
