Winter retreat

​Behind the eyes, the seeing.

MAY 29th to June 2nd



Participant – How can I remain completely silent, if my mind...

Satyaprem – You will not be completely silent. You only think that because you don't know who you are. The first basic thing is to know who we are. When you know who you are, many of the questions you are asking will be irrelevant, will not make any sense.

There is no separation between you and Silence. You are the Silence and the Silence is singular – there are no two “silences”. Silence cannot be measured, it cannot be measured, it is immeasurable. Silence is all there is.

Noises are definitely plural, but Silence is not. Do you conceive of "distinct silences"? No. Removing the misunderstanding takes us directly to Silence. The moment you begin to understand, the chips begin to fall, and you go straight into Silence.

Silence is inherent and is just waiting for you to pay attention to it. See carefully if you are everything you think you are. See if you are this body, see if you are your mind. Investigate this and observe what remains despite all the answers, behind all the answers. Forget the mind, it is on the surface, like noise. Go deeper and access the supreme answer and the supreme answer is the purest Silence.

Whenever we rectify the known and succumb to logic, we move away from what is bringing the new, the unknown. Satsang, however, works in reverse. Satsang reminds us of who we really are and takes us away from who we think we are.

This environment is peaceful when it reaches your heart and is seen, if it is not seen, if it is imagined, it becomes confusing, very confusing and you keep trying to be the person you think you are. But if you saw it, if you looked in the right place, it's painless.

Simply recognize that you are nothing like you are thinking and that in the presence of this, all is beauty, silence, peace. If you look at the right place, it is immediately accessible. If you look in the wrong place, not only is it inaccessible, it appears to exist. In fact, this makes this secret that we are sharing here even more complex, because it does not exist at all. Only in sensory terms is it inaccessible. That's why stillness is almost fundamental.

Some things are precise and precious in our encounter. One of them is to give your eyes time to close, cutting off contact with the external appearance for a certain time. This stillness, this absence of movement, necessarily leads us - almost as if magnetically - to the sensation that is not silence, but that is neighboring, is the limit. Because in the stillness of the body and mind, we understand that our system is engaged in movement all the time.

If you understand this, you observe yourself. And Satsang is accessible to anyone who has already observed themselves. Otherwise, it is neither accessible nor desirable. On observation, we know that everything that really matters is inside. Anything.

Satyaprem 4.jpeg


​Born in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, in the early 80s, he had his first contact with the enlightened master Osho, from whom he received the name Satyaprem, which means "Love for Truth". He studied Journalism, dedicated himself to Photography, Painting and Poetry; publishing his first book in 1983 – "PA" – in Rio de Janeiro.


For approximately twenty years, he has been focused on working with Therapy and Meditation, working in Brazil, Europe and India as part of the Multiversity team of therapists, from Osho Commune International. Among therapies, he specialized in Primal Therapy, Family Constellation, Tantra and Kinesiology. His work with meditation was based on Satori, Awareness Intensive, an intensive process of self-inquiry based on the structure of the Japanese Rinzai Zen Schools and perfected by Osho with his meditations.


In 2000, the "end of the search" was revealed to him and, since then, he has called on people to awaken to their original nature, sharing the "Encounter with Truth" (satsang) through lectures and retreats, in addition to books that contain excerpts from these meetings.


For 22 consecutive years, Satyaprem has held the Carnival Festival at Sítio Leela, in addition to other retreats throughout the year – both at Sítio Leela and in some cities in Brazil, Europe and the USA.
