Now what’s the golden nugget in today’s busy, overly stimulated, hyper-connected society?

Neo believes silence is golden and can help to lead one to finding solutions to personal challenges, whether presented by economic stress, relationship discord, life change.

May 20th 2009, New York – Neo’s Silence, Meditation and Yoga Retreat in Andalucia, Spain, July 5th-12th 2009, features two days of guided silence and meditation to help people deal with stressful or transitory situations, such as those thrown up by the current economic crisis.

An experienced yoga teacher who runs yoga retreats in various worldwide locations, Neo believes that the combination of guided silence, meditation and yoga is highly effective in gaining insight:

“In turbulent times stress can cause the mind to go into survival mode which, ironically, often prevents it from finding a way out of a difficult situation. Insight and solutions can be revealed in moments of quiet contemplation, reflection and deep relaxation acquired through silence, yoga and meditation.”

The path to achieving insight, or what many call the “Aha!” moment, is an area of interest for many psychologists and scientists including cognitive neuroscientist John Kounios who states:

“If you want to encourage insights, then you’ve got to also encourage people to relax”.

Through a number of studies, published in 2004 and 2006, Kounios and Mark Jung-Beeman, a cognitive neuroscientist at Northwestern University, observed that focusing on letting the mind ‘wander’ in a relaxed state is the real key to achieving insight. Neo incorporates this philosophy in his teaching and uses silence and meditation to facilitate this kind of ‘brain wandering’ to access insight and solutions.

With the global recession now hitting hard, many people are finding themselves in unforeseen transitory situations which can be extremely unsettling and difficult to navigate unaided. Neo’s retreat gently guides its participants and equips them with useful strategies to relax, re-evaluate their goals, find clarity and their own individual path to contentment. A retreat participant comments on the positive effects of this experience:

“An inspiring week. I would recommend it to anyone who is unsure of their path or finds themselves at a crossroads in life. It just might highlight the signpost”

Neo is no stranger to business turbulence. He experienced the dot com boom and its ensuing storm and emerged in 2002 with a new perspective on life. He has been teaching yoga, meditation and silence retreats ever since. In addition, he is no stranger to stress and workload; he lives in New York City and his work involves international travel to eight countries and includes running a children’s charity as well as recently starting a social enterprise.

Neo’s Silence, Meditation and Yoga Retreat in Andalucia, Spain is taking place July 5th- 12th 2009.
