Life. Giving. Silence. a Silent Retreat in Northern California

In this autumn retreat we will steep in the silent contemplations of Nature and deepen our remembrance of what is most essential, authentic, life giving and free. This five day silent retreat offers an opportunity to pause, nourish, reflect and offer devoted attention for Self inquiry, personal healing, revelation and insight.

Silent Retreat will be held in Noble Silence - silence of speech, eye contact, touch and gesture - except during the three group meetings with Vanessa each day, in which dialogue and questions are welcome. In the time between group meetings, Vanessa is available for personal meetings throughout the retreat.

This special event is limited to 20 participants, and is offered at the beautiful Cold Springs Retreat in Penngrove, California. This is an immersive experience balanced between time shared in community and time in solitude, engaging in deep self inquiry, contemplation and reflection. Tuition includes shared accommodations and three delicious meals each full day.
