Introducing the FIRST of the Mount of Oaks Silent Retreat Programmes 

April 16-20th



  At the Mount of Oaks we appreciate the beauty of silence expressed as a spiritual discipline within a gentle monastic lifestyle. As such, we seek to share this with others!!!




"We have come into this exquisite world to experience ever and ever more deeply our divine courage, freedom and light" Hafiz


Welcome to arrive on the land Wednesday 16th April - ideally before 5pm. Silence begins after the introduction dinner on Wednesday night.


 Thursday 17th - Saturday 19th we will be holding a contemplative space for ritual, walking, reading, gentle breathing exercises and perhaps even some digging/planting in the garden. 

Sunday 20th we will finish with a celebration!

The rhythm will be structured around the 3 vegetarian meals in the day (mostly locally and organically grown), with lots of time to rest, breathe and 'be' in the beautiful nature. There will be a daily themed guided walk.

The retreat will offer participants an opportunity to relax into the simplicity of an inner dialogue with themselves and the nature and animal life around them. 

Local massage therapists will be on hand if you would like to arrange a massage. This is not included in the cost of the retreat.

If you have NEVER experienced communal silence before - this will be a great opportunity to give it a go in a supported environment. Nothing to be scared of!!! 

Please bring a notebook and pen, tent and camping gear, torch and natural products for washing. 

The cost for the retreat is 100E, with a deposit of 25E to secure your place. We will have a maximum of 10 participants. 

Please let us know in advance if you have any restrictions on your diet.

For directions and other details – please refer to the Mount of Oaks simply get in touch!!

looking forward to hosting you,

in peace,

emma, barbara, marcia and eric
