August 1 - August 10, 2023


Imagine spending 10 days in the beautiful and serene mountains of Northern BC, Canada, surrounded by old growth forest and completely off the grid. During our silent retreat, you can expect to explore the innermost aspect of your being and to gain insights on your true nature through the tools of yoga & meditation.  Together we will participate in daily movement practices and non-dual tantric meditations inspired by the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra.  In the evenings we will gather for Question & Answers to help aid the practitioners in diving deeper within themselves.  


In addition to finding ways to rest in the quietude and peace of our being, this retreat can also help us to gain personal insights and self-reflection.  The group meditations can help to reduce stress and improve mental clarity.  The serene location of this retreat provides a chance to connect with nature, allowing one to become more in tune with the world around them. All of these benefits can help to create a sense of peace and balance in one’s life.

9 Benefits of Being in Silence


  • The Dasa Mahavidyas are a set of ten goddesses in Tantric-Hinduism, each representing a different aspect of the Divine Feminine. They are seen as the ten aspects of the same divine energy, and each one of them is revered and worshipped for her unique qualities and attributes. These ten goddesses are celebrated and respected, as they represent the power and beauty of the Divine Feminine in all its forms.

  • Kali is the devourer of Time, Tara of Compassion.

  • Tripura Sundari of the Ruler of the 3 worlds, Bhuvaneshvari of space.

  • Tripura Bhairavi of determination, Chinamasta of Self-Surrender to the divine.

  • Dhumavati the widow crone, Bhagalamukhi the paralyzer.

  • Matangi the ruler of all knowledge, Kamalatmika the fullfiller of all desires.

Mantra is an incredibly powerful tool that can help us to create positive change in our lives. It is a set of words or phrases that are repeated to aid in focus, concentration, and meditation. Mantras can be used to help us to manifest our desired outcomes, to help us to relax and find inner peace, and to help us to stay in touch with our higher selves. Mantra is an invaluable tool that can help us to create positive transformation in our lives.
