Have you ever just sat quietly in the morning listening to the sounds of nature and allowing the beauty of it all to seep into your very soul? Practising noble silence regularly, will allow you to feel more and more of nature living its life as it surrounds you.
The art of noble silence can permeate your life bringing you to a state of inner peace and tranquillity, opening the mind’s eye to the understanding of life. Silence, stillness and introspection and time in the now, this is something we rarely allow ourselves, if ever. This retreat will focus on the gaining of emotional contentment and finding the inner silence that lies within us all.

This retreat is open to all people, however it is recommended that you have had some sort of retreat experience. The teaching subjects given by our Zen Master Fushin on this retreat are of more advanced concepts in their nature and it would be advisable but not a requirement for participants to have some sort of background in Zen or Buddhism understanding.
