silent retreat
silence and contemplation 


11th - 14th August 2023

Price: £200   

Community Contributor: £130 

This weekend is dedicated to all who wish to join us for silent or nearly silent contemplation.

Discover and explore your true nature in the serene and beautiful surroundings of our off-grid encampment.

"Stay quiet and introduce yourself in this moment."


About this retreat 

This silent retreat will take place in the afterglow of the Enlightenment Intensive, creating  a peaceful atmosphere of gentle openness amongst the stunning surroundings of our wild valley retreat. 

This is a relaxed and self-regulated time. No chit-chat is the only rule. Arise, rest, meditate, walk, participate as you choose. A time with no social engagements other than to pursue silence and truth.


Some yoga instruction will be available which can greatly help after spending time in sitting meditation.


There will be a relaxed daily schedule for those that wish to follow it. The Dakini Temple will remain a place of silence and meditation throughout and all are  welcome to follow their own private practice if they so wish. 


For those who would welcome instruction, Shivam will give basic pointers. In addition there will be occasional readings from the great masters, possibly even some videos. Some formal dyads will be held, which enquire into and share the taste of reality.


Regular meals will be provided and teas/coffee will be available throughout.

Price: £200

Community Contributors: £130

The price covers three meals a day and teas/coffees for 4 days

Basic instruction on meditation, yoga and breathing techniques available if requested. 


Arrival Time:

Friday 11th August between 4pm - 6pm



Monday after 11 am 

Please make sure to arrive on site at the arrival time. We will ferry you and all your gear in our four wheel drive vehicles down the steep mountain road to the village (if you don't fancy the spectacular mountain footpath). This takes only a few minutes to drive but you will have to load everything into our vehicles with our help. Welcome to the Bhutan of Wales. You can have the full Himalayan adventure without ever leaving Britain.


Spirit Horse Mountain Retreat is set amidst 200 acres of wildest Wales, allowed through the Forest of Dreams (registered charity) to return to its natural original face.


Silence is the not absence of sound. Silence is the absence of you.
