Self-Enquiry, Meditation & Silent Retreat

March 15 - 19th, 2025

This retreat is designed to help you find peace and presence. It focuses on teaching deep self enquiry practices combined with guided meditations to help you achieve mindfulness and a heightened sense of awareness and contentment.

"There is a presence, a silence, a stillness which is here by itself. There is no doer of it, no creator of this stillness. It is simply here in you, with you. It is the fragrance of your own self." Mooji

Embark on a journey within and explore the depths of your being with our Self Enquiry & Meditation Retreat. Through self enquiry and meditation, gain insights into your true nature and awaken to a profound sense of inner peace and clarity. Rejuvenate your spirit and discover the power of your own inner wisdom.

This Retreat is designed to help you become an observer of your experience, in order to remove blockages and allowing for greater self-awareness. Let us help you to reach a deeper level of understanding through practicing presence, discernment and detachment. 

We offer you a unique and immersive experience in which you can dive deep into your practice each day. Through guided meditation, workshops, and establishing a stable practice, you will leave with the tools to bring your inner peace and balance home with you. Join us for an unforgettable experience and lasting transformation.

The Self Enquiry approach at our Retreat is inspired by the core teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi, one of the most renowned Indian spiritual teachers of the 20th century. Through this practice, we invite you to explore your true self and gain insights into the nature of your being, helping you discover the source of inner peace and freedom.

Many of us live an active life, guided by an active & restless mind, in a world that is always moving and changing, a world with constant information and input, a world that makes it hard to find rest & inner peace.

In silence you realize how much energy dissipates in turning your focus outwards & that you do not depend on outside stimuli at all. In the stillness and silence you discover a whole new world within.

Shifting your attention away from the world, going within and retreating into silence, you can experience rest & inner peace.  

While at first the mind can be wild and hard to be tamed, through proper guidance, self-enquiry & meditation it can be silenced as well. In this state of outer and inner silence you will discover the natural bliss of just being.

Would you like to join us on this journey within?

“The question ‘Who am I?’ is not really meant to get an answer, the question ‘Who am I?’ is meant to dissolve the questioner.” Ramana

Gabriel Grimaldi

 

Gabriel started on the path of yoga 10 years ago with the aim to find balance and wellbeing.

 

The more he practiced the more he wanted to know. This led him to travel all over the world trying different yoga styles and practicing with many teachers until he found a path that resonated with him: Jnana Yoga, the path of knowledge.

He was introduced to self-inquiry and Ramana Maharshi’s teachings by Mooji in India and recognized the truth of it immediately: going deep into the “I am” sense in the search of our true nature.  

Gabriel has taken many months in his own four walls to retreat into silence. A time where he experienced the power of stillness which led him to discover his true nature. Through daily practice and study he has come to understand and incorporate the wisdom of the ancient scriptures.

In this retreat he will share with you all his knowledge, understanding and the power of meditation and self-enquiry.

Patricia Grimaldi

 

Ever since she came in contact with Ayurveda 11 years ago when at a crossroads Patricia has been on a deep dive into a yogic life, the search for truth and the path of healing.

 

After completing a Hatha Yoga Training in India, she founded Sapana Yoga in 2015. Her ongoing search led her to take many different trainings like Ayurveda, Yin Yoga, Qi Gong, Akashic Records, Bhakti Yoga, Transformational Facilitation, Aerial Yoga, Vegan Nutrition, Coaching & more.

The many studies with spiritual teachers around the world have helped her to undertake deep transformation, live a life dedicated to the spiritual journey and share all this knowledge with others in her classes, retreats and trainings.
