What is Silent Meditation?
From the moment of waking up till the last moment of falling asleep, our mind keeps seeking & desiring something. Silent meditation makes you conscious of this pattern & helps in breaking it away. Its main objective is to provide you space where you seek & desire nothing, not even God. Simply just being available to yourself & cherishing your own company. That is the whole art of Silent Meditation 'doing nothing'.
Silent meditation is not about escaping life but providing you the strength to face the world with a clear understanding of yourself.
How Silent Meditation works
The external noises - phone, tv, news, etc. & the internal noises - thoughts, feelings, emotions, etc. fill our everyday life. Also, it affects our mental clarity to see things as they are. Due to our ignorance, we give ourselves away to these noises quite easily & they start taking hold of our daily life. As a result of this, we suffer much in our personal & social life.
The Silent meditation retreat here at Him River Resort allows you to break away from all these disturbances so that you can start seeing yourself in a better light.
In this retreat, you will stroll silently through the woods and listen to the music of life for the pleasure of being. Silent walking will help you to become aware of simple things in your life that have previously bypassed your attention. While sitting beside the river Ganges feel yourself becoming one with the flow of life & watch how slowly & slowly your whole being starts moving effortlessly. It will help you cross many obstacles in Life pleasantly.
The philosophy class conducted here at Him River Resort is not about teaching old gospels or methodologies but providing the guests the space to be genuine. They must ask questions that arise out of their being & not borrowed from somebody else. Therefore, once you're yourself & me myself, then we can communicate & go deeper into the questions together & develop a fresh understanding.
