One Day Silent Retreat

A day of silence in the beautiful surroundings of the Surrey countryside

With Marion and Martin Young and Jan Collis

12th June & 23rd October 2024

Enjoy a day of silence & stillness, an opportunity for deep rest, reflection and relaxation at Wychcroft Retreat House in Bletchingley in Surrey, the perfect venue for a silent retreat with its deep presence of stillness.

  • Slow down and recharge – With guided meditations, Conscious Resting and time for personal reflection
  • Disconnect from technology – Our busy lives cause our minds and bodies to be on hyper-alert, which is stressful and tiring. Escape from your phone and sink into the stillness (we offer an emergency number in case you need to be contacted).
  • Enter into the silence – Let your brain waves slow down… let your mind and body unwind
  • Create space – For your inner wisdom to shine through, and to reconnect with your true meaning and purpose
  • Connect directly – To the guidance of your Soul, a deeply comforting source of infinite wisdom and inspiration
“Paying attention to outer silence creates inner silence ~ The mind becomes still.”
~ Eckhart Tolle

On this one-day retreat you will be gently guided on how to ‘be’ in silence and how to get the most out of the experience

Wychcroft House is an idyllic location set in the beautiful Surrey countryside, with views for miles.There are footpaths enabling you to explore the area or simply walk and absorb the tranquillity. The presence of stillness means it is an ideal place in which to experience being in silence, especially for the first time.


Arrivals from 9.30 am and we finish the day at 5 pm.

What previous retreat participants have said…

“I was expecting to find the Silent Day Retreat difficult. I am an incessant chatterbox and the only time I ever stop talking is when I am asleep. Plus, I am forever checking my mobile devices. How would I cope if I had to switch them off for almost an entire day?

Marion was incredibly reassuring and actually, slipping into the silence was effortless. After a couple of hours, my mind slowed right down and by lunchtime, I had discovered my inner Prozac. I touched a profound bliss within that I had never experienced before and it stayed with me long after the retreat was over. In essence, it was life-changing.”

“I loved last Saturday! I had never been on a silent retreat like that before and it surpassed any expectations I had. It helped me to truly experience the depth of this god-like energy within me. I felt connected to its gentle power, and how that power connects us all. The feeling has not left me.”

What previous retreat participants have said…

“Thank you so much for a wonderful day – I loved all of it, I resonated with all that you offered and said. Indeed being part of a group was the key as I just don’t have the discipline to gift this to myself… even though I know how beneficial it is. I got all the learning (and rest) that I needed and am now completely sold on the intention to take regular conscious rests!”


“I loved the retreat. I wanted to stay at leaving time – so perhaps in the future an overnight retreat would be a real treat!”
