Are you feeling overwhelmed? Tired? Is your internal tank on empty? Then a silent retreat might be just the nourishment you need.
We love silence! Silence creates a rich and fertile ground for conscious resting and an opportunity to allow your heart to open; just as a flower opens in response to the sun – gently, slowly, and naturally.
You are warmly invited to join us for 5 days of guided mindfulness and self-compassion practice in the warm embrace of silence. You need nothing but the willingness to meet whatever arises in each moment with curiosity, courage, and compassion.
Having given many online retreats since Lockdown, we are totally in awe of the heart-opening experiences our participants share.
We love providing self-compassion-focused silent retreats and believe they are truly enriching and deeply valuable for one’s own flourishing. But don’t take our word for it! Here are some tender reflections from a few of our beautiful participants to help you decide whether a silent retreat is what you are looking for that will bring you nourishment.

“Your whole being is so kind and loving. Your voices and presence are like balsam for my mind, heart, body, and soul. Thank you!”
“They both are super supportive and very kind. Their commitment to the program was amazing therefore I felt completely safe and relaxed the whole time. Even though it was a remote session with the time difference, I felt connected to Kathryn and Liz as if they protected me by my side.”
“I have always found both Kathryn and Liz approachable and supportive. I did not feel that I needed any support during the retreat, but I knew they’d be available if I did, and I’d not have hesitated to reach out.”
“The retreat was very well organized and clearly structured so that I felt safe at all times. Kathryn and Liz guided us very cleverly and lovingly into the process and out again so that a lot of healing could happen for me. This led to a surprising calm and clarity that I have never felt before. Thank you for all that from my heart.”
DO YOU HAVE RESERVATIONS ABOUT BEING ON RETREAT ONLINE?
“Although I was unsure about the quality of silent retreat ONLINE because it’s 5 days long and there was a time difference issue, I had such a wonderful experience. Practice at home is much more useful and practical for daily life than going isolated facility away from home. For example, I enjoyed walking meditation around my house, that I smell food and hear the voices of some family instead of great nature of some special retreat centre. I was aware how I use my senses in daily life, so my cognitive sensor is sharper now. Kathryn and Liz were a wonderful team, their strong support created a very comfortable space so I felt safe and connected even during offline time. I appreciated too, their very professional training skills with great personality.”
“Thank you for being you, awake, compassionate, kind, and loving. And thank you for sharing your wisdom.”
“I’ve changed on a deeper level. I feel more courageous.”
EVERYONE IS WELCOME! No matter where you are in the world, what your background, experience, belief system, or perceived difference, you are warmly invited to share this inspirational time with us. We believe in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging.
