What I am trying to tell you is that, from the outer to the inner, going deeper inside, we reach a stage when there are no thoughts, but we are still there. You cannot be absent in any situation, and you are not the thoughts. You are there - the consciousness is there - the awareness is there - without thoughts. Is that not a state of complete silence? Only thoughts break the silence. What else?
A website of Lucie's spiritual teacher Gurudev Shri O.Sharma is now opened and regularly updated with new discourses (Satsangs). If you are interested to know more please click here.
We have also started publishing small books on various spiritual topics taken from our teacher's Satsangs. So far we have published topics Love, Attachement & Detachment, Meditations, Ego, The Aim of life, Spirituality & Religion, Spiritual master and the seeker of Truth, Purifying emotions and intellect.

Our Oast house has accommodation for up to 15 people, and a large barn has been converted into a fully equipped yoga studio. The centre is set in 16 acres of land in a quiet and secluded area. The garden consists of fields, woods, a series of ponds, and an organic kitchen garden, which provides most of the ingredients for the vegetarian food that we cook here.
In this setting we run workshops and residential retreats. We see yoga as one way to develop an awareness of our inner selves and increase inner peace and happiness. This in turn helps to improve our performance in daily life and our relationships with those around us.

She spends several months a year in India with her spiritual teacher. When in England she leads yoga workshops, retreats and training courses.
