"The value of silence cannot be understood except through experience….  What joy awaits discovery in the silence behind the portals of your mind no human tongue can tell."

— Paramahansa Yogananda

Participating in a retreat offers members the opportunity to withdraw temporarily from the many activities and pressures of daily life and to come together to fully dedicate a day or two to practicing the presence of God, spiritual study, and relaxing physically and mentally through deep meditation. The united concentration and devotion of the group reinforces each individual's endeavours to develop a more personal relationship with God.

You will be very welcome to join with us on these retreats, detailed below. The contacts given are for retreat information. All other London Centre enquiries should be addressed to Theresiu Janicki-Hardy.

You are warmly invited to come to these retreats for a period of renewal in body, mind and soul.

You may be surprised at what seclusion with God will do for your mind, body, and soul.... Through the portals of silence the healing sun of wisdom and peace will shine upon you.
