For those practicing Primordial Sound Meditation, taught at The Chopra Center, and want to take the practice to a deeper level, a new retreat is now available called “Silent Awakenings: An Inward Journey Inspired by Dr. David Simon.”
Set for September 4-8, 2012, at Asilomar Retreat Center in Monterey Bay, Calif., “Silent Awakenings” offers participants the chance to go beyond their regular meditation practice and extend the experience of silence and contemplation to help them “dive deeper and in turn be more present” in their lives, according to The Chopra Center.
“In our dynamic, goal-oriented world, we don’t usually spend much time or attention cultivating silence, but it has been my experience that learning to surrender to this quality of awareness nurtures all aspects of life – including our environment, our body, our relationships, our creative expression, our heart and soul,” said Simon.
The new retreat will be hosted by Dr. Deepak Chopra, Brent BecVar and Amanda Ringnalda. Each day, participants will be guided in Primordial Sound Meditation, yoga, walking meditations and journaling.
Pricing includes 5 days, 6 nights accommodations at Asilomar; three meals each day; guided Primordial Sound Meditation; daily yoga; journaling and guided nature walks; and evening meditation and community gatherings known as satsangs.
