Testimonials

Rakesh Tiwari

Delhi, India

I went through inexplicable experience during basic course of silence meditation by Spirit Yoga Foundation. It was a unique experience of living in your own conscience by disconnecting with outer world. All the participants weren’t allowed to talk during the whole practice of seven days. We were instructed to calm our five senses which otherwise if active can distract the mind. Now, I am eagerly looking forward to go through advance course of silence meditation.

Puran Adhikari

Interlakhan, Switzerland

During school days, I used to hear, “if speech is silver, than silence is god”. I realized its meaning when I remained in total silence for 7 days while undergoing basic course of silence meditation. The silence of place in the close vicinity of nature was enough to put our mood towards meditation. No cell-phone, no talk, no gesture for communication was allowed. It drifted me to inner peace of existence.

Balwinder Singh Madhok

Chnadigarh, India

The advanced course of silence meditation is amazing. It purifies my inner conscience by eliminating all the negativity. The ambiance of yoga center is enough to go through silence experience of meditation smoothly. The meditation room is spacious where I felt no disturbance---outer or inner. At the end of day, I always felt new wave of vigor is flowing in the whole body. I revived a harmony in my mental, physical & conscience levels by completing this course successfully.

FAQ

It is self-meditation ‘kriya’ to connect with your pure conscience in mystic moments of stillness.  Silence is melodious music to meditation-seekers who visits in and around Rishikesh for yoga and meditation retreat. Meditation technique is simple for the seekers who are ready to renounce world for a week to discover mystic world.

Silence meditation is static in nature with traditional yoga learning. It starts with withdrawing of your five senses. The other meditation mainly stays on controlling of mind by yogic breathing, chanting of seed mantras or focusing mind on breath or mind or chakras. But silence meditation speaks of silencing senses in traditional way under guru’s vigilant eyes.

The duration of the course is seven days. The asanas are light which starts with joint exercise initially. The purpose is to open up your stiff joints, muscles and spine. You learn to bring stability and stamina for long sitting without strain or pain in any part of the body. This is what you learn in regular yoga teacher training course in India.

For yoga beginner, 100 hour or 200 hour yoga teacher training course is obvious choice, which is affiliated to Yoga Alliance, USA. Age, experience, nationality and gender are no barrier to learn yoga & meditation course. Yoga is inherent in your breathing and physical movement. You just have to stir it, cajole it and practice it to bring attuning in mind, body & awareness.

It brings radical change in your thoughts, emotions & actions. You discover pure inner world of consciousness, and its divine nature. Your relations with family members/colleagues/ neighbors improve. Your power of attraction improves, and you remain cheerful all the time.

Physically you will remain the same, but it changes your attitude, behavior pattern & psychology. You will remain filled with positive vibrations, whatever be the course of time (good/bad). The joy & peace of mind will never be elusive from your life.

Absent-mindedness & lack of focus/attention is the common complain among new generation. Perseverance & iron determination are secret of success, which comes only when you become master of your mind/senses. Silent meditation makes you stronger by growing seeds of iron determination within you. Once you take decision & step forward, you never budge from it.

The silence meditation course erases all inkling from mind which prevents a student to bring desired focus and attention in their study. When even a mediocre or below average student study with one-pointed concentration regularly, he/she pass the exam with flying colors.

Well, a good idea! You can start your day with silence meditation. It is the art of making your mind standstill to attain peace & calm. You need a perfect silence zone to practice it. Never bring phone, music player, and electronic gizmos in your special meditating room.
