If a desire has arisen in you to spend a few days connecting more deeply with yourself, you may wonder: What will I find in a Silence retreat?
It is important and necessary for our health to be aware of what happens to ourselves and take care of it, this is called self-responsibility. Taking responsibility for ourselves, our pains, internal blockages, anger, frustrations, sorrows, etc., is the principle of mental and emotional self-management. Silence can lead us to self-awareness.
Eliminating the “I can’t live without …” is one of the keys to finding a full existence, full of happiness. It is difficult, but important. It is convenient to start with small challenges and go one by one. Having dependencies and ties of any kind will inevitably create continuous dissatisfaction.
In our day to day we are faced with many situations that cause us dissatisfaction, irritability, sadness, frustration … In a retreat what we are doing is withdrawing or moving away from everything that can cause us discomfort in order to learn to be with ourselves.
