"During a retreat like this, silence is one of the most,
if not the most, important ingredient.
It is this habit that we have of chatting continuously
That is responsible for keeping this illusion alive.
It is the constant chatting that keeps this idea of ‘me’ alive!
Just here in the moment, in the silence, there is no you and me!
There is no world here.
There is no story.There is just beingness.
Just rest in this freedom."

During the retreat there will be two formal Satsangs every day. There participants can share their processes up front with Soham. Other than in Satsang we are in silence.

Bettenburg Castle is a renaissance estate that has been restored with great effort and love, near the nature preserve with the same name and close to the small town of Hofheim in Unterfranken. It is situated in a remote location on a hill surrounded by woods, with a gorgeous view over the country side at the foot of the hills. Camping is possible.
