“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.
