Meditation Demystified Part III: Why Go On a Silent Retreat?

Meditation Demystified Part Three

Posted on February 28, 2019

Listen to the episode:

In Meditation Demystified: Part III, you’ll learn:

  • What typically happens on the first day of the retreat
  • How you’ll likely feel when showing up
  • What the facilities are like
  • If silent retreats are really completely silent
  • The value of going back to the basics
  • What “the proper way” to meditate means
  • Why Rob still gets nervous before retreats (and he’s been on 8!)
  • What kinds of people will be joining you
  • Who leads the silent retreats
  • What you’ll be eating
  • If silent retreats are religious
  • What retreat leaders often talk about during the retreat
  • Why silent retreats create better leaders
  • What to do after you’ve completed a silent retreat

As meditation turns more mainstream and continues to grow, so does curiosity surrounding the practice. People want to know what’s behind all the hype. Can “sitting in silence” really make us better leaders—and better people overall?

In the donothing Meditation Demystified minisode series, I sat down with longtime imageOne team member, meditation practitioner and silent retreat participant Emmy Georgeson. Together, we’ll reveal insights into the meditation practice, clarify common myths and discuss the benefits of (and apprehensions towards) joining a silent retreat.

In the final installment of our three-part Meditation Demystified series, Emmy and I talk about one of the most intimidating types of meditation—the silent retreat. What exactly happens at a silent retreat, and is it right for you? Discover how unplugging and looking inside yourself for a few days benefits not only you, but everyone around you. It’s truly the greatest leadership challenge you’ll ever take.
