Just as how we start each morning affects our entire day, so too how we start each year affects the entire year. Start your year with awareness of mind and kindness of heart in the beauty and quiet of the Milarepa Retreat Center. Drubpön Rachel and Giorgio will guide a one week purification and silent retreat to let go of the old and bring in the new with awareness and compassion. There will be group yoga, relaxation and mantra recitation sessions together, with plenty of time for personal solitary practice of your choice and question and answer. If you do not have a personal practice already Drubpön Rachel and Giorgio will give you a basic daily practice according to your needs and interest. 

This retreat is a chance to deepen your confidence and experience in personal retreat with the support of a group. Each person will focus on their private practice in solitary for several sessions a day. One could practice any of the 4 Ngondro practices or a diety yoga practice of your choice. During the day we will meet for body and breath work, walking meditation and guided relaxations, group mantra and discussion time.
There will be time for each participant to have private interviews with Drupon Rachel and Giorgio about their personal practice and any challenges they are facing with body, breathing and meditation. It is suitable for all levels of practitioner and if someone is new to practice we will also support them in finding a suitable personal practice that they can do daily. The retreat will be in silence to support inner work and wellbeing.
