Grace Stillness Retreat

 

 

‘Grace is an energy source
Stillness is your inner world’

 

I am an ever-flowing grace within myself
I carry stillness within myself
I am serenity within myself
The energy that strengthen me.
– by Guiomar Rebelo

 

 

Often, we get caught up in the day to day events not contemplating the motion around us.

 

There are many reasons, why in stillness and quiet space to contemplate, connect with our divine essence and to heal ourselves, body mind and soul, may be helpful for our wellbeing.

We work with the understanding that there is grace, stillness and serenity within us, and that this increases or decreases according to our habits of thought and feeling.
By allowing yourself to withdraw from the busy daily life for a short period of time to go deeper, can often bring the greatest shift in perception that brings clarity and would allow us to live a more soul-directed life.

Our intention for this retreat is to offer a friendly, nourishing 5 days of learning the art of regular silence help liberates from intensity of modern living and connect with our inner self can help us maintain an upward trajectory of inner growth and peace.
Silence and stillness are disciplines that bring vitality and life to our relationships.

So, in our practice, the key is simply not to cut off anything. Just drop your attachments to externals and allow the thoughts, sounds and so forth to be what they are while you maintain your stillness of mind through ‘consistent’ practise.

If you can do this, you will see the activity that exists within stillness, then you will see the stillness that exist within activity… and finally you will become that awareness in which there is no difference between the two.

 

THE AIM

The aim is to enable participants to recharge their own sense of wholeness, wellness, energy balance, grace & stillness and learn how to maintain this strength in everyday life.

 

WHO IS THIS RETREAT FOR?

So, forget lazing on a lounger.

The latest way of breaks/holidays are retreats offering the chance to dip into healing techniques, silence, meditation practices, contemplation, 1-1 spiritual counselling, Chi Kung, various types of massage, energetic healing. Walking’s in beautiful groundings or by the sea. Delicious homemade vegan or vegetarian food and come back from your retreat/holiday, restful, sleeping better, with renewed energy or better digestive health.

A 2013 study published in the journal Brain, Structure, and Function, involved comparing the effects of ambient noise, white noise, pup calls and silence on the rodents’ brains.
Although the researchers intended to use silence as a control in the study, they found that two hours of silence daily led to the development of new cells in the hippocampus, a key brain region associated with learning, memory and emotion.

Studies have found meditation can help lower blood pressure and reduce stress levels, but you don’t have to sit still to do it, you will learn how to meditate, practise breathing exercises and discover how to be ‘in the moment’ on walks through the surrounding or on the Seven Sisters at Seaford.

Guiomar and Guilherme are professional holistic therapists will support you on your 5 days journey of wellbeing.
