SILENCE OF SOULS

'Silence Of Souls'  is joining Silence with our Souls, which can only be experience individually by a seeker who is connected with self. 

As an individual seekers, we always search for a place, where we can just be ourselves. Hence, SOS is a place where you can meditate freely in the presence of nature. We are inclined in providing spiritual refuge to all those who seek peace, freedom of mind and heart.

We are not an organization, we are nor gurus, neither we are teachers. We are just simple helpers and seekers, who are helping each other to explore our inner core towards journey of life.That light cannot be given to us by another, no organization, religion, guru or any individual can make anyone free. It is possible to go on this journey only when there is the light which comes through the understanding of oneself. You have to find that light within yourself, which means that you must inquire into yourself, and this inquiry is a hard work.

We prefer meditation retreats in noble silence and welcome all who are new seekers and people who already on the path of self exploration.

Full Moon Retreat

5- Days retreat during full moon days

Moon in Sanskrit is called CHANDRA means illustrious.  Moon is presiding deity of Water and rules over the tides of sea, which impacts mind- emotions, thought processes, feeling and mental processes. Moon creates subtle influence in our journey of life.


Being deity of water, the moon has an effect on water and our body is consists of 60% water, so the impact of moon rays can be experienced on our body and mind clearly through our emotions and thoughts . So full moon day (Purnima) is important and beneficial for meditation. As food that we consume is converted into 2 parts – mind energy and PRANA. The mind energy is centered in the pineal gland area from which vital hormones get secreted. The moon enters in this gland to take control of all our activities from night till the time we wake up. The rays of the moon affect human beings, animals, plants, water and so on. So the full moon meditation is a time of positive opportunity by using it correctly with meditation. It can increase positive energy within you or if ignored it can wreak havoc on human emotions. 

Full moon meditation with chanting pours down a tremendous amount of energy, to keep calm state of mind. Whatever is going on in body, mind and spirit will be amplified with full moon meditation also.

Individual Retreat

For Seekers, artists

There are quite a few ways to meditate, but no matter whose path you follow, your own or somebody else’s, there is a general rule: You cannot allow your mind to be restless or agitated. You have to try to make the mind calm and quiet, like the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. This advice all the spiritual Masters will give.

How will you make the mind calm and quiet? The mind has its own power, but right now your determination does not have the same degree of power. The mind’s power is now stronger than your present eagerness to meditate. But if you can get help from your heart, then easily you will be able to control the mind. The heart gets constant assistance from the soul; and the soul has all light and all power. If you take help from the heart, then you won’t allow all kinds of silly rubbish — unlit, undivine thoughts — to enter into your mind. 

Each one is allowed to meditate in his own way. Concentrate on your soul and bring the soul forward. You can consciously create a pure vibration and keep a sincere attitude, then it is easier for your soul to remain at the fore and to receive everything from supreme.

Love, devotion and surrender are the cornerstones of our philosophy because we feel that they make up the true sunlit path which can lead the aspirant to the Goal very fast. If you want to enter into consciousness, the best approach is that of love, devotion and surrender to supreme.

Our Individual Retreats are specially designed for serious meditators who often need secluded and harmonious environment  for their meditation.

It is also for artists (as painters, poets, musicians) who like non-disturbing environment to explore themselves more in Silence. In Individual Retreats, silence does not means the way to stop talking but to rejoice more in the presence of nature, knowing more about oneself, rejuvenating one's mind and body.

In 'Individual Retreat' seeker/participant has to attend for morning and evening Group meditation, beside that there is no particular schedule for the retreat . And Silence still will be of utmost important.  

Participants are welcome to apply for individual retreats ranging from 5 days to a month.
