“I can go so much deeper with my light family, if they let go of the questions and in Silence surrender themselves” ~ Almine
A Retreat in Silence with Almine
We are really happy to announce a spiritual retreat with Almine like no other. A complete silent retreat, where Almine is able to work with you on a non-cognitive level and thus go so much deeper than she has been able to do in her classic question and answer format retreats.
During this retreat in the beautiful wilderness of Killarney Park, Almine will work with the very essence of your being, using silence, meditation, 300 angel wheels, light elixirs, sound elixirs and much more. Also, on the final day after the closing of the retreat, the Global Earth Chants Ceremony will begin. For those who want to stay during the weekend to enjoy this monumental event, you can do so and carry your silent awareness to the Global Ceremony. A perfect continuation.
If you ever thought of joining Almine in a spiritual retreat, but were never quite sure if it was something for you, then attend this one. No deep metaphysics to wrap your head around. No cognitive question and answer work. Just deep spiritual communion where your very essence will be awakened to its true potential. Also, if you are not that good in English, then attend this one. If you have done retreats with Almine before but want to experience a deeper level than she has ever taken you, join this one. If you want to invite a friend to experience Almine but are not sure they will understand the deep mysticism, join this one. Or, if you just want to treat yourself to an unforgettable and unique summer experience…
The Killarney silence retreat is going to be the only one of its kind. Perhaps some day we will organize more, but for the foreseeable future it is only this one time. So if you want to experience this, register quickly.
Killarney: Land of Spirits
Killarney is considered one of the crown jewels of Ontario’s parks; a majestic, mountainous wilderness of sapphire lakes and jack pine ridges. It is said to have the oldest rocks in the world, and its sunsets have been rated among the top ten of most beautiful sunsets in the world, by National Geographic. Natives call this region “the Land of Spirits”. The solitude and beauty of its undisturbed natural setting are just stunning. All in all it is obvious why Almine specifically chose this place to hold her very first Silence Retreat.

Trusting our beings of divine light

Niels,I think I have just broken that stick.Last week my cat chased a squirrell up the tree,it went too far out and lost its balance.It did not appreciate the fact that he/she was being watched and that the mission had to be aborted.I do remember the fact that he didn’t get any praise for the distance he did travel.I will look at what your followers have to say about your comments.
the more the merrier.sharing the experience and swopping ideas looks good from where I’m standing right now.Need to think now
ann cummins says
looking at ways to transcend this whole duality notion.
thinking about mixing the bliss of silence with the doingness or action and cancelling them out.Is here a place of nothing?
ann cummins says
Just thought of something else Niels. Having experienced great joy and excitement as a result of being in this outside space of doingness,where great pleasure and great results have been achieved ,the challenge here with the ‘silence’ is the constant pumping from the excitement of being in the work,outside space and not being able to go deep into that silence spot,where maybe rest and insights and simpler remedies might be on offer.Like winding down time and cooling the excitement
Just a thought,
In beingness, in silence, the enjoyment of your awareness can be really great… even blissful. But for me the ultimate insight to work on right now is that neither doingness nor beingness gets me anywhere, other than realizing what I am doing in my life. I am trying to combine doingness with beingness and thus canceling them out, by transcending that whole duality…

How many times we do this,swinging from one end of the pole to the other.Like running hot and cold.One day falling for something,thinking it to be the hottest concept in town and then running cold on it and doing an about turn.One day feeling that silence is the preferred state of being expecting knowledge will flow effortlessly.What I am trying to achieve here is the attention I pay to the ‘gaps’ so to speak. When I come out of these silence patches,feeling great, but instead of making use of the time spent in that space,by taking action and doing something,the dream of going back into that sleepy patch beckons.Its very cozy to say the least.It is restful and tranquil.and gets us off the hook where action in the form of work is concerned.Trying to fulfill a more meaningful role here by responding to the promptings in the silent phase.As I see it ,the next time we return to that silent spot we will have graduated to a higher level as a result of using this energy ,obtained in the silent time,in a meaningful way. Just a thought.Its some type of a battery charger ,a source where we can say- I need a boost here.I have to scrape snow off the roof in an hour.When that source sees that yes indeed,that roof was cleaned as a result of the energy boost,it will gladly oblige next time,knowing that it provided the impetus for this powerful action.
Trying to balance ‘the going out far and wide’ to access what we want,while conserving energy and the notion that what we are looking for might be dished up to us on a plate,without any effort on our part.
Just a scattered thought.
ann cummins says
Niels,I just read your earlier reply and in relation to the ‘silence cards’ yes I will access them and thanks for this idea.
As regards meeting Almine as you suggested.This meeting is long overdue.I am so curious about her.Everything about her fascinates me.I keep going back to her web site and wondering.!!! The promptings are loud and clear and yes I will meet her.I remember Avril or Jan saying that if something sounds right that we should go for it.
Almine is a beautiful woman,giving.loving ,funny, and I love the idea of being allowed to figure things out for ourselves.No preaching here.There is a feeling of nothing happening while everything is happening at the same time.What is very beneficial for me is the fact that I can chew on the bits that appeal to me and put the rest into cold storage,for access later ,if so wished.
love to you all,
ann cummins says
In this silence the mind can be stretched and stretched so I understand then that the healing that occurs during this deep silence ,facilitates this process.Travelling inward to this vast reservoir of ours.
Things looking clearer and very exciting.
Actually, I would not even be surprised if this experience will move you beyond concepts of outer and inner, and the judgement that one is more needed, or holy than the other.
It is understandable that we do this, seeing inner as more profound than outer, simply because many of us have spend so much time in outer, that when we see the folly of this, we headlong dive into its opposite; inner. Which is just the other end of the stick in duality.
And that is fine. It is a learning process.
Here’s to the journey!
ann cummins says
Niels ,i simply love how you have expressed this here.I fully understand now about giving this non cognitive process as much room as we can.I am grasping the powerful meaning of the paragraph here–‘Communications that can access the far greater potential of the subconscious or even Universal mind and being far more powerful’.It seems like we should have no need to comfort the mind and requesting to know,when as you say ,life is constantly changing. Yes I have been listening to some of your viewers and followers ,seeing how they are letting go of mind.Some great insights coming in.It is so relaxing to just BE and live in the moment.allowing each and everyone to be free at the same time.Thanks so much for these beautiful words .
They are received with pleasure,
Perhaps it is time to explain our intention here a bit more in detail.
We have seen unclose that the most “succesfull” personal retreats have been those where a lot of the communication was done in silence. The moment you engage the mind and start to play the illusory game of questions and answers, you are contracting, and focussing on but a part of your being, with but a part of your being. A big insight here is that in a world of mirrors, the questions will never stop. Every answer will beget another question, and thus round and round you go. Comforting the mind, in its incessant quest for control and knowing, but ultimately going nowhere in a world that always is shifting, changing.
Communication that by-passes the limited abilities of the cognitive mind and accesses the far greater potential of the subconscious or even universal mind, is far more powerful and can affect far bigger changes.
It is with this in mind that we are organizing the Silence Retreat. Does this mean that there is no talking at all? Of course this will be impossible. However, the intent and focus is there to be a silent as possible, giving this non-cognitive process as much room as we can, to go as deep as it may.
Perhaps this has answered a few of the existing questions…
ann cummins says
no further questions
ann cummins says
Would love to know more about going deeper into own process while maintaining silence
Ann, I do not precisely know how to answer your question. The first things that come to mind is to meet Almine herself and see what this does for you. Furthermore you could download the free “Silence Cards”:
To my understanding, everything that Almine has provided either helps you attain silence, or go further into the silence. Be it something obvious as the silence meditations, or less obvious like books… all is meant to stretch the mind as far as it can go, until it eventually just gives up.
Hope this helped somewhat.
For the last year I have had visions and yearning to work from this great depth of silence with Almine. Sometimes I envision me in class with her, I say, “Almine, instead of speaking take us deep within to the place of no words and tell us there”. I envision us going deep to a place within the earth, within ourselves. We are surrounded by transparent sea foam green. A place we have been before, a place were words do not exist but much is spoken, remembered and revealed. In my vision I am aware of being spoken to in this place of no words but now I anticipate what it would feel/be like. The unspoken language, the language of the unseen, that you have to sit still to hear the greatest depth of your being.
I work with adults who live with a disability. They do not speak. They talk to me in unspoken language. It is why I choose to work with them. They are assisting me in remembering, rediscovering. It brings me much joy not to hear the words spoken but to see it, to feel it, to hear it in another way.
Wow, will I make it to this retreat? I had thought it would be in the woman’s first shamanic retreat, an intimate setting that I would do this (safe). This larger retreat makes me nervous (more people less safe) for this I take very seriously, from this place of unspoken words great joy and playfulness will be revealed.
Thank you for your heart felt response, Cristy. If you do decide to go, I wish you the best possible experience… and hope you will go as deep into your own process as is possible. These kind of reactions were actually exactly what we hoped for, in that you seem to recognize the life changing potential that this retreat can have if approached with the acknowledgement of what Almine and you can accomplish in Silence. I am sure that whoever does go this retreat, as with all of Almine’s retreats, also needs to be there.
Recently an idea came to me about a coming together
for the Earth Chant Ceremony. How GREAT it would be
to be present with light family for the momentous event.
Congrats to all participants!
If you are not able to make it, Marli, know that for the Earth Chant Ceremony, many groups around the world, small and large, are coming together. As well as a lot of individuals who will be tuning in. Perhaps this is the ultimate exercise to overcome time and space as we all join in together during those few days, across the globe.
Just a thought.
Thank you Almine
For the ones who can not be there in the Physical is itt possible to connect with that retrait in silence?
Without questions just connecting from the debt off the one being in us
To go in nature as much as possible and be the many and the one
So Almine can connect with the ones in another location as well in silence
Niels will you ask this to Almine
Feels great Corrien
As Almine is not here at the moment, but in Canada, I do not have easy access to her, Corrien. But I can give you an advice that I think many here will recognize. You can always connect with a retreat with your intention and state that you want to contribute and feel the changes as they happen. Many have stated that they can feel the great changes when Almine is in a retreat, even though they are on the other side of the world. I would not be surprised if even on this comment people will respond that they have felt such a thing (yes, this is an invitation to share!)…
So, Corrien, even though you may not be able to join in, you can still connect with your intent… and watch what happens through your day.
Hope this helped.
