Tina and I have just returned from the meditation retreat organised by the Wat Suan Dok Monk Chat program in Chiang Mai. Having just returned from our retreat, we’d both thoroughly recommend you do the course during your time in Chiang Mai. Normally the meditation retreat lasts approximately 24 hours – from Tuesday lunch time until Wednesday lunch time, although during the last week of every month the course lasts from Tuesday lunch time until Thursday lunch time. Full details of the Meditation retreat workshop program are available from the Monk Chat Meditation Retreat website.
Hi Priscilla, yes we will although we have been very busy recently and the audio files we made during the CELTA course need a lot more organising that with the other podcasts. The Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat is a unique 10-day immersion experience which focuses on accessing our real and essential nature, the supreme and divine Self, atman, through an artful integration of meditation and yoga techniques.
Price: Hridaya Yoga has 3 pricing options to make our teachings accessible to as many people as possible. Supporting Price is for those who have the resources to support the spiritual work of those with fewer financial resources. Interest in the Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreat has grown consistently since we started our Meditation and Yoga Center in Mexico in 2012.

A little background about my relationship to mindfulness practice and meditation will tell you that I have been at this stuff consistently for about six years.
I took seriously my centering practice and practiced it over and over again until it began to "do me" rather than me "doing it." My daily 10- to 40-minute meditations at home had to suffice in length just as they were, and the timing couldn't possibly be "same time, same place" each day as the books and teachers suggested.
All of these things and much more have gone through my mind in contemplating this time away, but nothing prepared me for how I would feel when I read these words: "This is a fragrance-free retreat. When the part of me who observes my thinking finally caught up to my thoughts around this subject, I immediately felt embarrassed for myself and utterly horrified at my pathetic "first-world problems." After all of this practice, are these really the things that have me believing I'm suffering? The truth is, I am suffering around these uncertainties and I'm working on finding kindness, compassion and curiosity around my thoughts rather than beating myself up about them. I mentioned my dilemma to a dear friend and also to the teacher who will be leading the retreat.
I can't say I won't spend at least a bit of time perusing the aisles of Whole Foods this week to uncover the fragrance-free product gems, but I'll also spend time reflecting on what it will be like to sit in silence long enough for a bit more of my ego to unwind and to observe it lovingly and with less horror than I have in the past. This retreats contain lots of important information about who you really are, what you are and where these realizations will lead to. It will be both enjoyable and challenging with Meditation, Mindfulness, Sound, Resonance of sound, Chanting & Mantras, Cleansing, Exercise, Good Food, Enlightening Conversations, Reflections, Dhamma Talks and Healing.
We will mainly be practicing “annapanasati bhavana”, which is MINDFULNESS as taught by the Buddha. The retreat is a mixture of exercises and practices that will help you realize “mind” for what it is. We will give you techniques, to be at your assistance, as “handles” you can use easily, that will help the ever busy Western mind relax, steer away from anxieties help with health problems and it can even heal phobia.
Find Peace, find relaxing moments, find your perception of “Self”, be able to be in your energy in this bustling life.
Furthermore, the 5 days are perfectly balanced, with good foods as well as with supporting elements and supplements and healthy, healing and cleansing practices. There will be great Vegetarian food, so tasteful that if you’re not a vegetarian, you won’t miss it.


The journey is the most important thing but it is also very important to just enjoy the experience. We will slowly move from Mindfulness towards a precisely built-up that will lead you towards a clear path of self realization. We work with a lot of different methods that all support one another and all will be much clearer, by the end of the course when all seems to come together. There will be explanations of the Dhamma as well as the possibility to ask questions that arise or have arisen, over time.
There will be a few meditations that are only allowed to be passed on from acknowledged teachers on the specific subject.
Besides all that we do energetic work that enhances the body and mind, we will do inside and outside exercises from ancient traditions, we will also meditate in nature (with its obstacles) have some nice walks and talk about this path.
We hope that the “weather gods” smile upon us so we can enjoy the environment and do some practice in nature. This retreat will start on the Friday around 1 pm and we will end on the last day Tuesday the around 2 – 4 pm with a long resonating chant and a blessing.
Please remember that monetary problems can never stand in the way of spirituality, so if there is a serious reason which would make it unavailable to you, please let us know. You will receive a little booklet (to read at home) and so it is not necessary to write anything down. This image is a mandala that symbolizes “An Attha”, the aspect of selflessness.  You can find all of the mystical symbols of the ages in this mandala and it has a middles sphere of void, which is not the same as nothing. Although we have spent several years in Thailand, we still found that we learned a lot from the informative presentations and discussions we had with the monks. During the retreat, we address broad aspects of the Spiritual Heart, from a variety of traditions including esoteric Christian, Sufi, and Kashmir Shaivism. As in some of our retreats we reach the maximum capacity of our halls, there is occasionally the need to close enrollment and place interested students on a waiting list for the next available retreat. Prior to this time I hopped on and off my spiritual path, only slightly recognizing the signs that were gently nudging me to stay put.
I attended day-longs and weekend retreats when I could, and spent countless "mommy" days exploring things like the enneagram, energy healing and working to become an observer of my mind. I'm wondering if my body will ache or if old emotions will take me over after coming to the surface. I swear I'm a down-to-earth gal who is dedicated to her practices and committed to helping raise consciousness in myself and the world. Mindfulness is a very important practice in order to become aware of the mind and its workings. You will get to know “the self” that which we perceive as “I”.  We believe in practical use of all methods, he will reach you the stepping stones to do everything by yourself, for yourself. We eat 3 times a day and it will be an event in itself enjoying each others’ company and having some great conversations. You will get handy support techniques to help these and other meditations improve immediately.
We will try to FEEL how this works as well as the positive effects, both physically and mentally. So elaborating on what effects you can expect will mainly depend on your personal depth during these days.


This cost includes food, drinks, the whole course and supporting food supplements, which are, to say the least, extraordinary. You could say that translated to the Western mind it is “Not Positive, Not Negative, Not Nothing, comparable (but not the same as) in western thinking the Godly stream that has no charge. It does not matter if you are happy or unhappy, rich or poor, healthy or unhealthy, clever or a little slow.
That being said, I'm all signed up and preparing my husband and two young sons for five days without mommy. This journey started at the ripe old age of 36, when I had one son barely off to preschool and the other barely out of the womb.
I've done my practices and spiritual work in the best way I could being a working mother of two and have worn that badge honorably. I'm finally going to join that elusive club of individuals who have taken the time and made space in their lives for deeper practice. What I saw in their faces or heard in their voices was pure fascination and interest in this part of me. I just might think about my next retreat -- the one where I have my own room and can bring most of my creature comforts with me. The reason the retreat is called “The Choice” is, that somewhere along the line, it provides you  with options to make certain choices within yourself that might change the course of your life, if you decide to do so. Most mornings of the retreat we will start early, way the time depending on how much sleep the group needs. Amongst other forms there will be energetic work with a special form of Kundalini Yoga, Dhammakaya (original which has a DIRECT EFFECT ON KARMA), breathing meditation and hatha yoga. Try to (mainly) experience it for yourself and take home the positive changes it can bring you. To ensure enrollment in a chosen retreat, we recommend booking early as possible—at least one month in advance. My spiritual practices have always been cleverly snuck in between preparing meals, career and "life as it presents itself" in general.
Regardless of how dedicated I have been to my practice, a part of me believes I'm just not the real deal until I suffer in silence for longer periods of time (writing this statement makes it sound all the more ridiculous). The reality is, that the only thing worrying me more than the fragrance-free dilemma is wondering who my roommate might be.
Their reactions helped me see the humor in my worries, but more importantly, to be able to hold them lightly.
There are Yoga exercises, specially developed exercises, breathing techniques that will expand your lung capacity and special techniques of mindful sleeping, walking and meditating.
More and more things will become clear so that we can see deeper into the reality of the world we have created.
It sounds silly to say now, but I have greater clarity that the essence of who I truly am does not include any products -- fragrance free or otherwise. Where am I going to find the time to discover fragrance-free products I like in the next seven days?
