Walking into Silence

 APRIL 23- 28 2019

 

 
Out of the Sea of Struggle Comes the Great Stillness
— Taoist Proverb

Join us for a week long guided journey as we take to the Rota Vicentina Coastline to explore silence, sound and spirit.

The focus will be to learn silence and connection as connection grows all is silence and the chatter that clutters the mind ceases. At this point clarity and connection to the preset intention that we will have discussed with you will flow and answers can bubble up from within the heart as the body and mind slowly respond. 

You will experience the constant and simultaneous presence of the hills and the sea, wild nature and the unique presence of man. The power of the sea pouring over ancient cliffs or on quiet sandy beaches, undergrowths full of colour and aromas, an extraordinary biodiversity of fauna, tranquil woods of cork, wild olive and oak trees, meadows cultivated by man at his leisure, visited at night by boars and badgers, a spring which erupts in flowers and colourful insects, an autumn that has mushrooms and edible wild plants, points of contemplation at sea level, at the top of the cliff, in the intimacy of the woods or on top of a hill. 

An undiscovered region awaits you.

Let Silence be your last word
— Mooji
