Our busy everyday lives are full of noise and distractions that disturb our sense of harmony and pull us away from the essential truth of our being. A three-night programme at Amanoi is designed to help guests shut out the noise and cultivate a sense of stillness and peace.
14-17 October 2021
The Silent Retreat focuses on the four foundations of mindfulness – awareness of the body and the senses, of the heart and feelings, of the mind and thoughts, and of the essential impermanence of life. Incorporating a Nourishing Massage, all meals and four daily sessions with Geshe La, the Silent Retreat should be taken as an extension of the Embracing Impermanence programme or for those of advanced practice.

Geshe La became a Buddhist monk when he was just 13 years old, taking his vows at the revered Nangzhig Bönpo monastery. In the three decades since, his spiritual journey has taken him all over the world, from studying with the 14th Dalai Lama to introducing and teaching the YungDrung Bon Buddhism in Canada, where he currently resides. Today, he is one of a very few Bon spiritual masters living in the west and qualified to offer this teaching.
