Jungle Silent Stillness Retreats
‘The Art of Being’
3 or 5 Day Packages

Connect to the Stillness of Nature
Meditation & Silence

Khaama Kethna ecological village and retreat centre invites you to participate in a 3-5 day ‘Silent Retreat’ in our tranquil slice of jungle wilderness. Immerse yourself into deep silent stillness and withdraw into the solitude and serenity of nature to reconnect to your true being within. No religions, ashrams or gurus and no distractions, just simple silence surrounded by the native flora and fauna of the South Goan Jungle.

Spread across 3-5 days and 12 acres of sub tropical forest, sleep in one of our traditionally hand crafted tree houses or cabanas and live in harmony with nature. We offer a gentle yet challenging program that combines sustained silence, a total digital detox, a clean healthy plant based diet and uniquely supportive yoga and guided meditation classes to completely cleanse and re-centre you from within.

Go beyond meditation, discover your inner stillness and begin to dissolve your attachments to the world around you.

WHY A ‘JUNGLE SILENT RETREAT’?
At Khaama Kethna, the art of being is consciously cultivated through simple but powerful and practical methods. One such method is by providing a sanctuary that encourages withdrawal into the solitude and serenity of nature from this modern, hectic world. Living as one with nature enables people to reconnect to their true being in their own way and own time.
In ordinary daily living, the mind is kept active through continuous stimulation from the outside world, this internal activity often builds up forming an inner restlessness and an insatiable need for entertainment through experience. Constant bombardment of the senses coupled with the complex interplay of emotions and attitudes involved in most social interactions tend to keep the fire of the mind burning, leaving you feeling anxious, discontent and fragmented. By removing distractions such as electronics, internet, music and books that activate the mind and disconnecting from the ceaseless chatter of social media, mobile phones and social interactions, we begin to free ourselves from the mental momentum and restlessness continually perpetuated by unnecessary screens and convenient conversations.
Living in silence allows for a heightened sense of intimacy with the beauty of life all around us. Our senses become more acute and our perceptions within and without can appear to us with greater clarity. We gradually become more in tune with the subtle life force within and a new awareness begins to unfold our thoughts and feelings normally drowned out by daily living. This is a powerful process that has the ability to penetrate deep within uncovering pure self-knowledge and revealing your true radiant being.
There are no distracting agendas, religions, ashrams or gurus placed upon you here and all views, traditions and spiritual paths are respected. Our methods are straight and simple, to support relaxation, stillness and transformation. The effective and enduring practices learned with us can be integrated into your everyday life long after you have left our retreat centre.

WHAT TO EXPECT ….
Upon arrival in the afternoon of the first day, once check in is complete we will have a full induction with a complete program including meal times and class/activity timetable. All of the rules and do’s and dont’s will be outlined and explained as well as a detailed map of the site and areas specially designated for the silent retreat. We ask that all guests please arrive before induction begins as silence will commence after the induction is finished.

Silence does not mean no sound: Just the idea of silence can appear intimidating to some who are more familiar with a more active and enjoyable social life. However here in the jungle, silent most definitely doesn’t mean no sound. The constant hum and ever expanding chorus of the wildlife all around becomes a soothing and comforting tune. An even more terrifying prospect to some is the total disconnection from the digital world but once again you may be surprised to find that the nature all around puts on a far more inspiring and entertaining show.

A detailed schedule will be given upon arrival and fully explained during your induction to silent living.

At our onsite Naturopathy Centre we provide a range of holistic wellbeing & wellness treatments and Ayurvedic massage. Treatments can be arranged for you throughout the retreat and can be pre booked during the induction.
Limited places apply and spaces will be filled on a first come, first serve basis so please contact us via Email or Phone/WhatsApp or Facebook Message to book your place.
