This 5-night silent retreat has been designed to help you to step back, introspect, calm the mind, realign and reprioritise your goals in life. Ideal for people who suffer from insomnia, high blood pressure, stress and burnout.
A comprehensive wellness consultation is carried out before beginning your silent days, which will determine your health, food preferences, specific daily routines and requirements, preferred meal timings etc. The retreat is then personalised and a structured agenda is set based on your choice of activities.
Your first day includes a tour of the retreat and you are given manuals on meditation and breathing exercises. You also receive your “Shhhhhreyas” badge indicating your request for silence to the other guests and a handbook in which you can write down your thoughts and emotions during your period of silence.
You spend the next four days in silence, breaking only to speak to staff when you require something. This solitary contemplation can result in deep-seated emotional, intellectual and spiritual issues, but there is constant support at hand.
After your silence, you enjoy an interactive session with the wellness consultants, to discuss any questions and share your experience, and are then welcome to interact with other guests and partake in the various activities on offer.

From day one they have been of good advices and they paid attention to my wishes. I am so glad I listen to their advices and decided to go to Vana.
Vana was unbelievable. My experience there was life-changing. It was way over any of my expectations. The quality of life, the people, the staff, the quality of the treatments, the profesionalism and knowledge of their specialists, the food, etc. It was fantastic!
I have learned so much on so many levels: mentally, spiritually, in terms of nutrition, health, etc.
The Healing Holiday team is so professional and dedicated. They show you that they care and this is the biggest added value for me."
