Week of Stilness

A lot of people are familiar with situations in life when they want to leave their everyday environment for a few days, get off that fast train of life and find a place where you can just be yourself, to live a bit slower, in a way that calms and clears the head and the heart. There is a place like that - spiritual practice centre Stacija. The special atmosphere is created not only by the location of Stacija which is surrounded by the primeval forest of North Kurzeme, 300 m away from the Baltic Sea, but also by the special atmosphere of the centre of spiritual practices, which inspires and motivates spiritual growth.

EACH PARTICIPANT OF THE WEEK OF SILENCE CAN ENJOY A VERY SPECIAL EXPERIENCE.

Structure for the Week of Silence

  • Each morning, an hour-long lecture is offered on a deeper understanding of the meditation practice and themes of human spiritual growth. Attendance is optional.
  • During the day there are several meditation sessions led by a teacher. The meditation practice is offered daily for 3.5 hours, which is divided into several sequences throughout the day. Attendance is optional.
  • Guests of the Week of Silence can have one-to-one conversations with a meditation teacher to have the opportunity to address the issues of life during the event. Attendance is optional.

The event hosts will tell you more about the different possibilities of spending this time on the first day of the Week of Silence.

The Week of Silence can be spent in two ways, according to each participant's choice.

  1. The Week of Silence can be used for spiritual relaxation, participating (or not) in the proposed lectures and meditation sessions by following your inner feeling. The week can be used for reflection, walks in nature or reading a good book in the library of the House of Silence. The Week of Silence helps everyone to regain their strength, but especially people whose lives are under intense pressure.
  2. The Week of Silence can also be used as a meditation retreat. It is for introducing the essential aspects of meditation, as well as providing an opportunity to learn and develop the practice more deeply. The Week of Silence can thus serve as a good framework for both beginners and experienced meditation practitioners.
