Silence, Yoga and Meditation Retreat in Tarifa.

6 Days of Inner & Outer Silence, Yoga and Meditation Retreat
in Bolonia. tarifa (South of spain).

26.08.19 - 31.08.19

"Silence offers all the answers to the most important questions".

We spend too much time looking outside ourselves. The outside world it is only a reflection of our inner world. And just by turning our attention inwards, we gain the capacity to change what occurs in the outside world.

At the beginning, this inner turning is only possible through the practice and cultivation of meditation. And moreover through mindfulness meditation: the equanimus and constant observation of the present moment, just exactly as it is.

In this Silent retreat we have created the perfect atmosphere for you to relax, to disconnect from the outside world and to re-connect with your inner world, that one where all answers are to be unfolded.

During this 6 days retreat, you will experience inner and outer silence, practice daily meditation, yang yoga (active) and yin yoga (deep meditative still practice); and daily Sat Sangs (questions and answers group circles where to go deeper into specific subjects that effect our lives).

You will have fixed times for yoga, silence and contemplation and plenty of free time to stay at the retreat area or go out into the beautiful nature, go to the beach, horse ride and even kite or windsurf if that is what your soul craves in order to become more quiet.

We do love silence (specially in these beautiful surroundings), but we do not want to force anyone to do anything. Just within the silent areas you are asked to respect noble silence and refrain from any type of communication with each other. Outside this circuit, as a responsible human you can do what ever you want. And we believe you will do what will benefit the most your highest You in the long run!

Maite Méndez

Hi, I am Maite. My passion has been since a child, the mystery of who we really are and how the connection body-mind really happens. Since I was a little girl, I experienced surprisingly fast somatizations. Every time something did or did not resonate with me, my body was reacting.  My body (so it is yours) is the vessel that your soul uses to manifest. And this is why it is constantly communicating with us; sometimes even fighting (through dis-ease) with our minds.

So I was fully aware of this connection, but I did not understand how did it actually work. Though my path in Hatha Yoga, Yin yoga and mindful meditation, this connection increased.  It is also through my years of study, investigation through the ancient text of Yoga, Vedas,  the meridian system of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Neuroscience and self inquiry practice that I really found the answers. And this is what I am here today for: to share with you this knowledge, so you can make as well good use of this information for you, your life and the life of others…

Mind, Body and Spirit are constantly interconnected. That is a fact! Just by the understanding of this principle, we can master our lives and the way we live them in order to create the highest version of our selves in this life time reality.

From my Heart, I really hope you enjoy this retreat and make the most out of it!

Maite has done several silent meditation retreats in different parts of the world and she is an experienced international Yin and Yang yoga teacher. Her family’s background in macrobiotics brought her since a child into the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the meridian system.  This 5 days retreat is an initiation into silence for those that are curious about what is it like to live for a few days of weeks in isolation, but still do not dare to jump into the full Vipassana experience. It is also designed for those experienced meditators that miss the physical active part in those long meditation retreats and have (or not) yoga experience.
