Your True Nature is Stillness

Your True Nature is Stillness


Our retreat is an introduction to the topic: "staying rooted in Stillness in the middle of the storm"


Join us for a day of playful Self-inquiry and reconnection with our True Nature in Satsang and Meditation with Sampriya. She is an expert at guiding seekers from all walks of life to experiencing the infinite beauty of inner Stillness.


When we long for Stillness and inner peace in the middle of a chaotic world, the thought attached to the longing often has a certain undercurrent that says:  "Stillness is out of my reach because I’m not calm or skilled enough, I’m not good or deserving enough to attain it". The intensity of the longing is an indicator of how distant or separate we feel from Stillness. 


This sense is not a personal failing, it is the definition of the human predicament. Our minds are wired to believe that Stillness is somewhere outside of us, that it is difficult to reach and only available to those worthy of it.


In reality, Stillness is alive in all of us. It is our natural state of being, our Source and our very own Self. Stillness is the unchanging, invisible and eternal presence of Life itself. When we meet in Satsang, Self-inquiry and Meditation, we have the chance to tune in to Stillness, to recognise and experience it as our True Nature with doubtless certainty. 


Meet Sampriya

Sampriya/Marie-Lou Kuhne Millerick


More than fifteen years ago, I decided to answer my inner calling to dedicate this life entirely to living in Freedom and Oneness. I spend most of my time in the Himalayas in India, in the presence of an enlightened Master and a community of yogis from around the world.

My greatest joy is to share my deep insight into the state of spiritual awakening with all those who want to reconnect with the center of their being, the Source of Life, Love and Freedom.

If you want to know more about me, here is a detailed biography and information about Essence of the Himalayas, the school of Meditation and Oneness.
