Episode 84:  What It’s Like to Be on a Silent Retreat?

Powered by RedCircle

In this week’s episode, Barb opens up about her recent experience of attending a 30-day silent retreat. She shares her profound insights, takeaways, and the biggest challenges she faced. If you’ve ever been interested in silent retreats, this episode is for you! Follow us @MichelleMaros and @Peaceful_Barb and share your experiences with us @BarbKnowsBestPod or at  www.michellemaros.com/podcast.

Episode Notes:

  • When choosing a retreat: listen to your heart and allow it to guide your decision.  
    • We do not recommend attempting a 30-day silent retreat for your first retreat. 
  • The retreat was based on love and kindness. Allow your heart to feel loving and kind.        
  •  If the world presents us with something uncomfortable, if you sit long enough, you can become comfortable and then attach to it.

  1. I really like the thought of hope converting into possibility. It makes the owner of the thought less dependent of the situation she might be in and more powerfull to act towards a next situation. Thank you for sharing!

  2. It was an aha moment when you said you had done previous retreats for others – wishing them peace, loving kindness etc. I cant tell you how many times I have prayed, read a spiritual books etc and thinking so and so would like this. Two thoughts – I was trying to control their life to make it better in my eyes .. and most importantly ignored myself and how it had meaning for me personally. Thank you.
