One-to-one session preparing for the silent phase of a retreat
A Transforming Encounter With Yourself
A substantial retreat for individuals at a turning point personally or professionally
and seeking 'Time Out' to renew purpose, meaning, and focus.
Our deepest retreat offers intense one-to-one work and proportionately more
silence, to stimulate deep transformation.
The Nirarta Experience offers a rare chance for you to:
- take time out to connect deeply with yourself
- give quality attention to vital questions in your personal and professional
- gain insight into what makes you tick in both a positive and negative
- profoundly renew you personal inspiration and life-direction
- ground and grow as a person, balancing head and heart, and
body, mind, and spirit
With the demands of family and work, and the ever-present intrusion of
modern media, people rarely have the chance to free themselves from distractions
and connect deeply with themselves.
This means that important issues needing
time and attention get postponed and connection with the source of creativity
and effectiveness within is neglected.
Now you can connect again with your source to unfold what truly you can be and become!

Phase 2 - Silence
- 5 days in solitude in nature by the river
- In this phase, you spend five days alone in a quiet bungalow by the
river. Five days of simplicity and silence in nature, without any of the
props of modern life, including organizers, phones, reading or writing
materials – just you with yourself, and a simple diet of fruit and
- This time alone with the company of the elements, will allow you to
let go of the markers that normally define daily life. There is little
we can say about this time of encounter with yourself. Each person’s
story is unique.
- But a time of silence like this creates a watershed, between before
and after in our lives, and in a very natural way stimulates much needed
change and growth.

'Je voulais juste te dire que depuis mon séjour à Nirarta

'I just wanted to tell you that since my stay at Nirarta and
the work with you, I've rediscovered a wonderful energy. Thanks again,
a thousand times for the beauty of this work that you offer.'
– A M, (France/Morocco), 2006
'Peter, the retreat and my long time in Nirarta has been a very wonderful experience and more than that, a source, from which I feel slowly changes in my every day life rise. Thank you again.'
– A H, (Germany), 2008
'I came into the 10-day guided retreat with an idea of what I wanted to achieve and experience. However, within the first two days Peter helped me clarify and deepen my understanding of where I was and what I was seeking.
From there the true transformations began to occur, and I now feel like I've shifted paradigms in the way I experience my world. This 10-day experience was much more than I expected, and the insights and clarity that emerged during the retreat, and that have been continuing to emerge since, have been life changing. Thankyou Peter!'
