Silent Retreat in California


Vanessa is offering this five day silent retreat at the beautiful Cold Springs Retreat in Penngrove, California.

This rare silent retreat is a unique opportunity to live with Vanessa and a small group in a beautiful home near the Bay Area of California. Each participant receives an unparalleled level of personal attention, with Vanessa making herself available and offering her complete engagement with each person's journey for five days. This is an immersive experience balanced between time shared in community and time in solitude, engaging in deep self inquiry and contemplation.

Retreat with Vanessa is an in-depth exploration of personal evolution through the study of humanity, practicing presence, aligning with the gift within, and coming more fully to life. Through dynamic teaching and contemplative inquiry, retreat with Vanessa offers a powerful environment in which to connect to the innate source of wisdom, catalyzing a return to what is most natural and alive within. This is an invitation to use our human life in a wakeful way, to ignite the heart as the center of true intelligence, embodying our essential unity with the source of life.

Silent Retreat will be held in Noble Silence - silence of speech, look, touch and gesture - except during the three meetings with Vanessa each day, in which dialogue and questions are welcome, as well as individual meetings throughout the retreat as inspired. The retreat includes shared accommodations and three delicious meals each full day. Please join us for this potent opportunity to dive into the heart of our living together.
