Silence and Embodiment

Silent Retreat – Meditation and Contemplation

We invite you to spend a week-long retreat to go inward and have an intimate connection with yourself. Through an ever finer contemplative exploration of the present, we unfold the beauty of the moment.

Food for the Soul

It is a time of silence, non-doing, an inner retreat of contemplation and meditation. To be without having to be someone. Nothing is expected of you, there is nothing to achieve. Just listen inside and see what is happening inside you.

Days of inner retreat and reconnection

Sitting, breathing, simply being there and drawing new strength, experiencing inner and outer peace. The power of the surrounding nature as well as a clear daily routine supports this process. Guided meditation and silent meditation allow you to engage in intimate contact with yourself.

During this time, patterns and conditioning or old injuries can appear, the mind can become louder and many thoughts come up. This is part of a mental detox process that creates space for most people to take more authentic steps in life. An attitude of mindfulness and acceptance enables a deep energetic process of clarification and expansion of consciousness.

Susanne and Martin present the retreat:

Martin Bruders and Susanne Ahlendorf have for many years combined the joint study of mystical texts and the regular participation in silent retreats, led by Thomas Hübl.

“Whenever you accept this moment, as it is, you are silent, you are at peace.” – Eckhart Tolle
