Does the world feel like it is speeding up? It is certainly not slowing down, and as technology and opportunities advance, there are so many options to spend our time making it harder and harder to find space within and feel your connection to a larger global and universal picture.
Perhaps the most important thing we can do right now as a collective is to empty ourselves of the un-necessary and reclaim our connection to nature and our true identity. We invite you to experience some of the peace and quiet you are longing for.
The mind is filled with questions, the answers you seek are found in silence. When connected to your true self and the natural world there is no question. Great masters and teachers have been sharing the benefits of a silent mind for centuries.
Our daily struggles and suffering is directly linked to our feelings of separation from the whole. That separation is an illusion of the mind. When the mind is quiet we settle into our heart center where all is connected in ONENESS and we finally enter ADVAITA.
At Raven Crest, our mission is to provide a beautiful, pristine home in Nature for all those who are yearning for reconnection. We will begin our 2019 retreat season with an invitation into your own peace of mind.
Experience the pristine surroundings of the natural world on our 300 acre property, enjoy vegetarian Ayurvedic meals, group meditations and dharma talks and most importantly…enjoy your SELF in oneness with all that is. Silence is the greatest teacher and heart connector. Where there are no words, the truth awaits you.
This retreat is great for beginning meditators and experienced meditators alike.

Maryn is a Vocal Transformation Coach, a musician, a member of the 'Tribe of Love' and 'Cura Cura' and first and foremost, a servant of spirit. Her greatest mission is to help others awaken to their true selves. Meditation has been a part of her life for 15 years and she has studied the works of many masters throughout her life. It wasn't until her first silent retreat that she understood the mind separate from the SELF. This life changing discovery has transformed her and, in her gratitude, she is thrilled to bring others to this understanding. All the wisdom of the universe is alive within your being. Silence is the only way to hear it.
