SILENT RETREAT at Kripalu Center, Stockbridge, Massachusetts - COMING HOME TO THE CORE OF YOUR BEING

  • Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health 57 Interlaken Road Stockbridge, MA 01262 United States (map)

Experience a cutting-edge perspective on spiritual inquiry. Amoda Maa offers profound pointers to truth that go beyond spiritual tradition or ideology.

This immersion into Amoda’s teachings invites you to rest in the silent core of your being. The retreat is a preparation for the winter season, a pruning away of the non-essential to discover what is real and shining as the essence of everything. When you come home to silence, you have the opportunity to experience true abundance and gratitude.

Presenting a fresh, feminine expression of awakened consciousness, this program includes talks by Amoda, time for contemplation, question and answer sessions, and silent and guided meditation.

Everyone is welcome, including newcomers to Amoda’s teachings and those more familiar with her work.

We recommend that you read Amoda's book "Embodied Enlightenment" and/or watch her videos before attending the retreat. 

Please note - the retreat will be conducted in social silence (speaking only when necessary) outside of program sessions.

This is a fully residential event, held at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health - there are a variety of accommodations available and all meals are provided (see details below).
