Well, I ask you why not?

Haven’t you ever wanted to take a break that does not involve usual weekend parties or expensive travel vacations?

How about taking a break from the external world and spend some time with yourself?

Don’t you feel tired of that constant nagging voice at the back of your mind? Have you ever tried listening to it or simply become aware of it?

How long will you ignore the reality of your existence instead of listening to the world and other people?

Don’t you want to discover your real voice, your authentic self?

A silent meditation retreat can do wonders to your life and can give you a fresh perspective towards life.

Plus, this 10-day meditation retreat is totally free of cost including food and accommodation.

All you need is a commitment and resolve to spend 10 days in silence with only yourself without any contact with the external world.

Moreover, the Silicon Valley of India is a place where you will find many corporate professionals and startup guys who are working hard to make their dreams come true and propel India forwards.

You may be one of them or may surely anybody who is working day and night in Bengaluru, sometimes at the expense of their mental as well as physical health.

It’s up to you today to start making healthy choices. Not choices that are just healthy for your body, but healthy for your mind.
