Beyond Pleasure Yoga Silent Retreat


9-16 June 2024.

Escape the noise of everyday life and embark on a transformative journey at the retreat focusing on “beyond pleasure” for an unforgettable experience of deep self-connection

As Wei Wu Wei once said, “Why are you unhappy? Because 99.9 per cent of everything you think, and of everything you do, is for yourself—and there isn’t one.” At this retreat, we dive deeper, beyond pleasure, and delve into the essence of our being.

Silence becomes our guide throughout the retreat, providing a sanctuary for introspection and self-discovery. We kindly ask you to disconnect from the distractions of mobile and electronic devices, as well as abstain from reading books. By relinquishing these external stimuli, we create space for inner growth and profound transformation.

Through meditations, yoga sessions, and meditative walks, you’ll embark on a journey of self-exploration and cultivate a deep sense of peace. As Swami Sivananda wisely stated, “Significant peace follows mouna (the practice of silence). In silence, speech energy is transformed into spiritual energy. Thoughts diminish, willpower increases, and significant bothers are removed.”

Nourish your body and cleanse your system with the delectable vegan meals prepared by our skilled Ayurvedic chef with ingredients from the local garden and surrounding mountain villages. These carefully crafted dishes will not only tantalize your taste buds but also detoxify your body, purging it of toxins and promoting overall well-being.

The retreat takes place in the serene surroundings of Siddashram’s yoga centre in Alanya, Turkey. The natural beauty of the ashram’s surroundings, nestled in the mountains, provides a tranquil backdrop for your journey of self-discovery. For the duration of the retreat, you’ll be accommodated in shared double rooms in houses or bungalows, fostering a sense of community and connection. While the rooms do not have air conditioning, the ashram’s location at approximately 700 meters above sea level ensures a slightly cooler climate than by the coast.

Your retreat fee covers all aspects of the program, including accommodation for 7 nights, three meals per day, and transfers from Antalya or Gazipasa (Alanya) airports to the ashram, and back. You’ll also have access to all activities carefully curated to enhance your retreat experience.

Embrace the power of silence and reconnect with your true essence. As Doreen Virtue beautifully said, “Words create duality. In silence, we find our true essence and ourselves. Silence is an omnipresent power, which gives birth to wisdom. Our roots are in the silent void of the universe, and it is important that we reconnect with silence regularly.”
