Wow. I am filled with gratitude for this radiant/magical/life-changing experience. Doing the master cleanse, being in a stunning natural setting, being in complete silence, and the sweat lodge makes a truly powerful combination. Not eating really forces you to notice and be completely present in your body and with your thoughts the silence really aids in this endeavor as well. The retreat enabled me to continue the master cleanse for a full week afterwards, something I never thought I'd have the will power to do. The yoga teachers on the retreat are so very welcoming and supportive of your experience there's no hierarchy. The sweat lodge is a place where I didn't expect to face my deepest fears, but did and am so incredibly grateful for that specific challenge. If you are at an especially lonely or sad juncture in your life, I highly recommend this retreat. I'm not saying you'll get answers, but you might leave with slightly a clearer focus of your life's purpose. My sole criticism of the retreat is that I wish it were longer! The weekend flew by in the blink of an eye. Thank YOU, YTTP. This counts as one of, if not the very best experience I've had since moving to New York City three years ago.
Go with no expectations
Nature; fresh air, and quiet
Challenges- physically and emotionally
Freedom to discover
To be anything/anyone I want to be
I AM OK
"YTTP silent retreat was not what I expected it to be. But yet it was so much more! It wasn't about silence, or cleanse, or being inside of my head, but about being connected to my own self. I went there to look for answers, to learn how to let things go. But found way more. Over this weekend I fell in love again. With myself. And with this world. So don't be afraid to try new things! Don't be afraid to feel! To be vulnerable. To listen. It's so easy to close your eyes and listen to the trees...to the birds...to the wind... And to your breath. No need for anything else."
