Inner and outer stillness purifies the mental field to cultivate connection to the deep-seated self. It is this state of spiritual wellbeing and mental clarity that the Journey into Sacred Silence seeks to invite.

“Silence is the greatest healer and meditation is an inner teacher. When we discover who we are beneath the non-stop chatter of the mind and our conditioning from society, we as humanity will move to the next stage of evolution. The best expression of love for oneself is the beginning of your spiritual path, and this meditation journey offers that and so much more.”

Peaceful and tranquil stay in Hong Kong

After a day spent in your meditative and silent practices, relax and restore in your boutique-style bedroom sanctuary. Set on a secluded hilltop overlooking beautiful, serene nature in the New Territories, breathe in the fresh air and enjoy views of abundant vegetation from your room.

Both villas boast five unique bedrooms with various designs, air conditioning and beautiful en-suite bathrooms.


Bespoke Program

Keeping mauna is a way to open ourselves to sacredness.

Within this blissful container of stillness and connection, presence is restored and the whispers of inner wisdom return.

With no need to interact and perform, energy returns to the soul, and slowly unclouded questions arise from the quietude of a once busy mental field.

Mauna, or Noble Silence offers a medicine for modern humanity to stay grounded and awakened; to keep one’s mind purified and open to creative downloads.
