Power of Silence
The Art of Silence Retreat provides optimal conditions for quietening our mental chatter, going deep within and experiencing inner peace. The practice of silence has been used in different traditions and cultures throughout time as a unique pathway to personal discovery: consciously withdrawing our attention from outer distractions and observing silence for a few days can allow us to experience an extraordinary sense of physical, mental and spiritual renewal.
Prerequisite: Happiness Program
The Art of Silence Retreat is carefully structured and closely guided by experienced senior instructors, offering you an optimal setting to let go and truly relax. Your day is designed to offer you the perfect balance between guided sessions and personal time to contemplate and connect with yourself.
A place of silence and celebration.
There couldn’t be a more idyllic setting than the Retreat Centre nestled in the serene Mauricie region of Quebec, regardless of which season you choose to visit in. The Centre has been a place of meditation and peace to thousands for almost 30 years, and as you start to drive into the arms of the pristine forest and lakes of the Centre, the breath becomes deeper, the mind naturally starts to quieten and a sense of lightness and tranquility takes over. It is a true feeling of “coming home” to yourself.

To find a place where you immediately feel like you belong is quite magical, which is exactly how I felt after visiting the Quebec Ashram. Discovering the Art of Living and trusting their programs to lead me back to myself continues to be magical & gracious gift that I feel lucky to have stumbled upon.
