Yep, you read that right.

Last weekend I was guiding a silent retreat in the Malvern Hills. We spent a day training in mindful meditation, in particular improving our ability to concentrate.

A silent retreat gives you the best possible opportunity to deepen your experience of concentration and thereby discover the mental pathway to inner peace.

At the end of the retreat, one of the attendees came up to me and said that she was the daughter of one of the regular attendees at my weekly classes. She decided to come to the silent retreat with her fiancé as part of the preparation for their marriage in one week.

This was the first time I had ever heard directly of anyone using a Meditation retreat as wedding prep; but I envision this will not be the last, with more couples taking a deeper interest in having meaningful wellness experiences together.

I was thrilled to hear that they had decided to prepare for their wedding with a silent retreat. Silence can empower us with mental clarity, focus, and inspiration. Often in relationships, a mindful silence can help us to understand the other’s point of view, develop empathy, and compassion.

Mindful silence can help us each day.

I always say in the retreats that I guide that when we engage in meditation practice not only are we helping the person who we currently are – we are investing in our future self and our future relationships.

Preparation is the key to success in every part of our life, and the inner preparation that we engage in with meditation is as essential as any outer preparation.
