Silent Retreat: Shine Your Light

How do you move forward in the face of the unknown, and continue to gain momentum towards your most aligned path? How do you discover peace and freedom where you are right now, and with the mind you have right now?

Come explore this and more at our daylong retreat!

Transform your relationship with your mind, so that you can gain relief from suffering and navigate life with a deeper sense of alignment and joy. Discover a reliable homecoming within you so that you feel grounded and stable in times of flux and flow.

Our time together will be designed to support you in settling your inner system, tuning into your own inner clarity and embracing the wisdom that can arise from retreat practice. We will begin with instructions and teachings. Then, we will explore potent practices such as yoga, mindfulness meditation and meditative self-inquiry. Noble silence will be honored during our time together, which is an ancient form of practice that connects us to who we really are and what we truly desire. It also cultivates transformative simplicity: seeing truth directly and aligning ourselves to it accordingly. We will end our day with reflection, optional sharing and integration.


This retreat is for you if:

  • You are at a place of transition and would like support calming your inner critic, building self-trust and cultivating an unshakeable center. 
  • You are interested in a meditative approach to navigating life’s transition and moving into this new chapter. 
  • You are interested in finding more alignment with your purpose.
  • You have been experiencing confusion, inner turbulence and chaotic frustration, and are ready for more peace, balance and clarity.
  • You have hit a wall with therapy, or are just not getting the results you want. Therapy can be a deep exploration of the mind, and sometimes we want rest from that exploration or a new way of living while also getting our needs met.

This event is wheelchair accessible. Everything we do, whether meditation, yoga or stillness, is an invitation. At the center of yoga is “mindfulness in motion” and provides a powerful nervous system settling to support deep meditation practice, which is our primary focus. So, modifications that meet your needs and desires are encouraged throughout our time together.


  1. Transform your relationship with your mind, so that you can gain relief from suffering and navigate life with a deeper sense of alignment and joy.
  2. Navigate the path of self-development fully, the wins and challenges alike. Knowing that whatever happens, you can explore it with grace, ease and equanimity using your mindfulness tool kit.
  3. Root into your sense of self-trust by listening to what arises within you and by consciously choosing action based on what arises. 
  4. Gain momentum in your life, in the face of the unknown and stall out no more.
