Before beginning the days of silent retreat , you will get a detailed Wellness Consultation regarding your health, food preferences, specific daily routines and requirements, preferred meal timings etc. The retreat will be customized to meet your comfort levels and a structured agenda will be provided based on your choice of activities. A suggested reading list is also given, which you can take from our extensive library.
On the first day, a guided tour of Shreyas will be conducted to familiarize you with the Retreat. Manuals on meditation, breathing exercises, etc will also be provided and you will be given a “Shhhhhreyas” badge that will indicate your request for silence to the other guests.
You will be provided a handbook in which they can write down their thoughts and emotions during your period of silence. You will spend Day 2 – Day 5 (4 days) in silence but will be able to break your silence and speak to the staff when you require something, though this should be kept minimal. We suggest that you also use the note pad kept in the cottages to communicate any requirements or instructions.
Spending time in solitary contemplation can bring deep-seated emotional, intellectual or spiritual issues to the fore, and our trained staff will be there to provide any support required. During the silent retreat you will be carefully looked after so that we may modify your diet or introduce certain activities to keep you balanced.
The meals during Silent retreat are also specially customized and prepared with ingredients that are known to calm the mind and are easy to digest. The ingredients for the meals are freshly hand-picked from our organic vegetable and herb gardens, and all preparations are light and nutritious. According to ayurveda, self-imposed mouna (silent) during eating greatly aids digestion and improves overall health.
On Day 6, which marks the end of the ‘Mouna’ part of the Retreat, you will have an interactive session with our wellness consultants, to discuss any questions and share your experience of the past 4 days. On Day 6 and 7, you are welcome to spend time interacting with guests and partaking in any of Shreyas’ activities that you choose to.
