Penang Silent Retreat

A privilege for inner enquiry and realization in the midst of nature @ Stella Maris, Penang.


How often do we come close to nature? More so, how often do we find a golden opportunity for our own inward journey, for inner enquiry and realization? Instead of enjoying nature, how about having nature remind us of its all-pervading impartiality to anything and everything that comes and goes. There may be the sound and movement of the waves in the sea or the animals in the jungle, yet nature does not complain. Nature is just a natural unfolding, a happening in total silence. 

Within us, silence can be found. Silence is precious; it gives us a vast potential to be honest in becoming aware of what our mind is expressing moment to moment, without being drawn into the experience.  Simply by observing and understanding the nature of our own mind and bodily processes, who or what we really are will begin to dawn on us. Yes, the mind can be noisy, restless, impatient or even bored. The body too can be painful, uncomfortable or ill at ease. No matter what, silence can be found in the midst of all these happenings; our job is just to be impartial to them, to understand the full-spectrum of who or what we think we are. 

Join us in this loving journey of inner-discovery, in the midst of nature, by the sea. An opportunity to find ourselves truthfully in the vast ocean of wisdom.
