FORTY-NINE DAY SELF ENQUIRY RETREAT
Please arrive at The Hermitage on the 23rd of January for an introduction meeting.
We ask that participants make a commitment to join the entire retreat and keep a vow of silence for the whole forty nine days. The retreat will involve a morning reading from a different master on Self Enquiry and a group meditation for two hours. The rest of the day will be for individual practice and participants can use the permaculture gardens, private beach and dock at the lake front, and various meditation platforms in trees and on the hillside for their practice.
Continuous retreat support is available through writing letters to the retreat guides if needed. Meals will be brought to each participant´s individual cabin so that they are not disturbed and may eat alone when ready. Each participant will receive a book containing the forty nine readings on Self Enquiry that have been selected from the teachings of various masters of this tradition.
