Next Silent Retreat

Samadhi Silent Retreats to discover the truth of your own divinity.Most of our Samadhi Silent Retreats begin on a Thursday night at 6pm and conclude Sunday afternoon at 3pm. 


All of the Samadhi Silent Retreats feature the Mystic 7, which are the seven common experiences of every Mystic, Master, and Sage that has come into Self-Realization of their own God Consciousness. These Mystic 7 Experiences are brought to life by David Browning who has experienced all of these Mystical Experiences and now abides in a state of consciousness called Kaivalya or Self-Realized God Awareness.

We are now holding private silent retreats to facilitate the opportunity for participants to have their own experience as Source-Awareness and to learn the skills of self-inquiry. These retreats are arranged for 3-7 people as the demand is created. When you are ready to schedule your own Private Retreat contact us for available dates. CONTACT US>>

To give you a really good feel of what a Samadhi Silent Retreat feels like from a participant's point of view, I'd like you to meet Jason and hear his perspective... 

“Enlightenment Can Be A Blast!”Enlightenment Can Be A Blast, response from 3-Day Silent Retreat participants
​By Jason Reagan

“Wow, this was so much fun, so light hearted, so humorous, yet profoundly deep and practically inspiring.” These were my thoughts at the end of the 3-Day Samadhi Silent Retreat in Athens, TX. With my history of attending two Vipassana 10-day silent retreats I have a unique perspective of how each benefited me and how they compare. I can say with full conviction that both styles have powerfully affected me, my first Vipassana being the catalyst for the most major life change ever thus far. That said, the Samadhi retreat delivered more value in less time and with more tangible benefits. I would gleefully choose to do another Samadhi retreat, which I cannot say the same for Vipassana.

The most notable standout from my experience was how much freaking fun it was! During the first evening discourse David Browning, founder and instructor of the Samadhi Retreat & Meditation Center, made the statement that indeed enlightenment can be a blast, which is a far cry from most orthodox silent retreats throughout history. The remainder of the retreat proved he wasn’t kidding. It was a jubilant time for me, and I suspect the others as well. 

There was so much laughter! This was such a pleasant surprise for me, as my background is only one of rigid, silent retreats who take themselves very seriously. So often I would catch David beaming a smile as he explained the philosophies of what we were doing. It’s so obvious to me that he ‘gets it’ because of his light heartedness. I don’t believe a person with actual Source experiences in their lifetime could be anything but jovial, and joviality is David’s nature (although he would argue that his nature is everything).  READ MORE >>
