The Greatest Gift ~ Silence

The Greatest Gift Silence

In relationship we may strive to communicate better. In solitude we may hope to deepen our sense of insight. By being together in a quiet way, we can achieve both. Creating opportunities to be together and apart can support a healthy, nurturing relationship.In meditation retreats for example, you may sit next to a stranger for a 7 hours a day, 7 days a week, and never exchange a word. When the week has come to an end, you may find your goodbye is teary-eyed with this new loved one. What then makes being together in such a simple way so transformative? A shared silence in a sacred space. Our Couples Massage treatments at Earthbody are a simple way to experience the richness of retreat. By experiencing quiet space in this way, a pair can feel a process where the breath acts as the dialogue.
