“The Sound and Silence Retreats are well kept secrets and if you have the opportunity to be reading this-don’t let it go unnoticed. Having attended an all women’s college I could speak highly about how the experience empowered me as a woman but it would not hold a candle to the power and magic of being in community with Devavani and Supriya. Growing and having permission to find my voice in a way I have never before and at the same time sink into profound Silence. It’s just a gift and an honor to be in community with powerful, nurturing, supportive women.”      ~ Maya Ji, (author, artist, retreat leader, international diplomat, business woman.)

 

“To experience the spiritual community of women with such connection, joy, and deep peace is what was found on this retreat.” ~ Fenella, ( Registered Nurse, “Wee Companions” founder, NFP organization)

 

“This experience with women who have the same mindset has changed my life and aided me on my journey. Words cannot express the feeling I have. I am complete. ”

 

“A powerful place for gently unearthing and shining a light on what is ready for change and what is ripe for cherishing and celebrating. Relaxing, centering, fun, belonging. A place to reconnect to the bubbling power and humor of women.” ~ Halli (author, actor, and consultant)

“I came with intentions for my self and my life. I left with a knowing of the support of sisterhood that exists for me, for all of us, at all times, and always. The teaching was organic. I learned about opening my heart and being compassionate with myself through the chanting and singing we did together. Doing the activities together; cooking, cleaning, hiking, etc – quickly built us into a strong supportive tribe of women. I wlll be forever grateful for my shift in consciousness that occured through this event.  ~Sherri Ginand, San Diego, CA

 

“Being at the  Sound and Silence Retreat made me feel like a Grinch in the rest of my life. I came and took all the gifts that you had to give (meditation, chants, integrity, safety, and support) and once I took those gifts, I realized that the community still had so much love to give. That’s when my heart grew 3 sizes. My willingness to be present in my life has grown as well, it has already improved relationships that I didn’t think needed improving. Thank you for creating the space to build a new family. I feel like I have 10 new soul sisters and I love it!”    ~  Kris Warholm, San Diego, CA

“My soul sings out…I hear the birds in a fresh way… Nature’s beauty experienced from a place of awe and inspiration…Bathed in the waters of love and innocence…Venturing forth as freshly born into a world that supports consciousness and loving presence. A community of love, peace and light. The phoenix rises from the ashes to soar infinitely in the presence of the divine.   Freedom…to be…to discover…to release…and to be reborn in a world that supports with love and beauty.”  ~ Donna Lawrence, Chula Vista, CA

“From the snow-covered mountains to the desert drenched sun, Sound and Silence opens my heart and soul and I carry that back to the world!”~ Dr. D. R. Mech, Encinitas, CA

 

Testimonials from Sound and Silence Woman’s Desert Retreat, April 2016 and 2017

“there is no cookie-cutter enlightenment”

We design our spiritual retreats from the intentions of our participants. What we do is provide the environment for you to recognize and nurture the experience of God within you. We implement a state shift that opens up for the next six months following the retreat. This is achieved by design, the community group dynamic, the practices, and listening for the Life that presents Itself when we discover and navigate together.
