Ready to ‘stop the world’ and deepen your spirituality?

The pace of modern life can be hectic!
A lot of people are stressed, drained or overwhelmed. Many people have a yearning to Be, just simply BE. The Darkness Experience weekend retreat can fulfill this longing.
Spending time in darkness is a powerful and ancient method to discover the wonder of Inner Space, Enter Deep And Real Knowing and Learn to See in a new way.
During the Darkness Experience you will spend 24 hours in rest, meditation, dancing ,eating & sleeping …. without seeing!
The Darkness effect is created by using special blindfolds that are designed to be worn comfortably for extended periods. They enable you to have your eyes open and yet be ‘in darkness’

It opens the way for you to remember what its like to have meaningful, quality time to reconnect with the deeper parts of you and to enter into a limitless space within.
In a weekend, with no light, less stuff and zero stress, you can stop overwhelm and get centered, while enjoying total rest and profound meditation.

The Retreat includes :
Learning meditations from Buddhism, Sufism, Tantra, Advaita and Osho
Listening to exquisitely beautiful and emotive music,
Receiving inspiration through powerful and uplifting poetry and spiritual teachings
Unstructured ‘open space’ for rest and sleep, or whatever feels most nourishing to you in the moment.
……………. All whilst the Darkness works its own transformative magic on your body heart mind and soul.

This Darkness Experience can help you :

Ease up on too much thinking: its like a mental detox! What if, you could begin to experience a quietening of the usual endless chatter in the mind and rest in the gap, the space between thoughts!?

And even if it seems challenging now, once you’ve had a break from using electronic screens and devices for a time - you will be so glad to have ‘unplugged’.

Enjoy deep rest for your tired body and stressed mind: Just imagine, you are being taken care of, there are no demands and you let go into profound relaxation. You will probably sleep more deeply than in a long time. Aaah …Such a great relief!

Shift from doing-doing-doing to the ease of Being: What if, you could feel a warm satisfying glow of aliveness deep inside sending tingles all around your body - without you having to do anything!? Mmmm…..

Awaken the senses - just imagine, your sense of touch is greatly enhanced, hearing is heightens, even tasting and smelling become more rich ……Wow!

Shift from feeling time as a ‘pressure’ (and you never have enough of it) to a sense of time expanding and opening out, into a Timelessness that feels so spacious and free.

Come to a different perspective on your self, your habits and 'problems’. You’ll learn to see in a new way.

Connect with your Soul - and refresh your sense of what really matters in life. Its so easy to get lost in the details of everyday life, living more on the surface - which leaves you with a hollow feeling. What if, you plugged into your Deep And Real Knowing so that you could listen to its guidance, align your values and live more in tune with what you really are!?

The Darkness Experience allows you to quickly experience the many benefits of Meditation whether you are new to meditation altogether, are rekindling your practice, or have a longstanding practice. This is your opportunity to experience a uniquely powerful, yet gentle approach to personal evolution and spiritual awakening.
Although the atmosphere is meditative people are often surprised by how much fun it can be to go through such a novel experience together and a unique sense of intimacy develops.

You will emerge lighter, yet more grounded, on Sunday night than you were when you arrived.
