For a person in reasonable physical and mental health who is genuinely interested and willing to make a sincere effort, meditation (including "noble silence") is not difficult. If you are able to follow the instructions patiently and diligently, you can be sure of tangible results. Though it may appear daunting, the day's schedule is neither too severe nor too relaxed. Moreover, the presence of other students practicing conscientiously in a peaceful and conducive atmosphere lends tremendous support to one's efforts.
Temperatures range between 1 and 10, little likelihood of precipitations. Snow is unlikely. The premises are all heated and equipped with hot water.
Toiletries: towel, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, sanitary supplies.
Clothing: comfortable loose clothing, slippers, outdoors shoes and rain gear (raincoat, umbrella), swimsuit/bikini (for lake/sauna)
In November temperatures fluctuate between 1 and 10 degrees celcius. Bring warm clothing for outdoor mindful walking exercises and hiking.
Writing materials: you will be allowed to journal and draw during the retreat.
Books: do not bring any books, we will provide you with reading materials.
During the days of noble silence, all students attending the course are invited to observe "noble silence" — that is, silence of body, speech and mind. They agree to refrain from communicating with their co-meditators. However, students are free to contact the management about their material needs, and to speak with the instructor. Silence is observed for the first five full days. On the sixth day, speech is resumed as a way of re-establishing the normal pattern of daily life. Continuity of practice is the secret of success in this course; silence is an essential component in maintaining this continuity.
Classes are conducted in English, however, German and French are also possible on request.
Delphine Supanya Berger believes that finding moments of stillness in our busy lives is the key to wellbeing. She is passionate about assisting people to find effective ways to slow down and give themselves some much needed space to relax, breathe and ‘be’.
At 29, she survived stress-related complications following several burn-outs. During her journey of recovery, mindfulness and extended periods of silence allowed her to discover her innate capacity to heal and affect her body with the power of her mind. Combined with a healthy diet, functional movement and discipline she overhauled her life and embraced a new calling. She founded Well to Work to create modern solutions to address the epidemic of stress.
Delphine was exposed to silent-mind and mindfulness from childhood through her Thai mother. Delphine regularly attends vipassana retreats around the world and features on the Awakened Mind mobile app, an advanced, structured and complete mindfulness education app. She is a Contact Beyond Contact Level 1 Facilitator and practices qi gong and yoga. She designs wellbeing initiatives for corporations, teaches meditation, mindfulness and self-care, facilitates retreats and passionately speaks about the power of the mind.
“Delphine is a subtle, loving and compassionate person. One of the great benefits of her method is that it reconnects you to your inner world and this is something I could never imagine. The inner world is a place fully of creativity and it presents unlimited resources. This is where I find all the beauty of this simple and intuitive method, which I would actually define more as a philosophy of life, and it is priceless. Thank you Delphine, you are a living inspiration."
Laetitia Guyon - Artistic Director
“She brings energy and positivity into her sessions. With her past encounters which transformed her to be doing what she is doing best now, she is certainly the amazing wellness facilitator that can empower individuals and corporates in work/life balance.”
Ratna Juita - Career Development Strategist
“I learned a great technique for talking with parts of myself and maintaining equilibrium so the internal struggle doesn't feel so acute and difficult to manage. I feel much calmer, happier and less in emotional turmoil."
Amanda Thorpe - Talent & Organisational Change Director
“The food was top quality and so delicious. I felt so guided and nurtured. It was a safe place for me to be my true self and heal on the deepest levels. The surroundings and the house was so peaceful and beautiful, I instantly felt at home when I arrived. It really is heaven on earth."
“From the moment I set foot on Himladal I could feel a wave of calm wash over me. This land is truly magic and the nature and energy is something to be experienced."
