Decisions for Silence
On Thursday, August 13, 2020, join Swami Ritavan in examining your preparations and guidelines for Silence. Due to the Pandemic, participants will be sheltered-at-home, and setting up spaces, schedules, activities for making the most of their Silence Retreat. Resting and Seclusion in the midst of home-life is truly an art, but it can be a science. Swamiji will share his own experiences plus the inspiration offered by Swami Veda in “Silence-Vols. 1 and 2.” Become forgiving, put the tongue away, and be creative. Also, he will share the art of gratifying and deep moments of quieting, resting, japa, plus yoga nidra. Making the decision is the flame for the wick and week of Illumination.
