Madhav Mhaske, CLYT - India: It was a wonderful experience to go through the Silence Retreat program and observe three types of meditations namely Silence, Hearing and Humming. I felt very relaxed and light, especially during the exercise of writing a letter of forgiveness. I decided to write to my late father, seeking forgiveness for not being able to visit him before he died. All my life I carried this guilt, but after having written the letter I cried and felt much relieved. At last, I had got rid of my burden.
Other exercises like writing a letter to yourself to work upon your weaknesses and try to correct them and closing your eyes while eating were also very helpful. The Wisdom Game was another learning lesson to how to agree with another person’s point of view without compromising your position.
Over all it was five days of bliss!! Ha haha
