Darkness therapy

Darkness tharapy is rediscovered form of meditation from Eastern philosophy. In this time the darkness retreats popularity increases also thanks to our most significant promoter of it actor Jaroslav Dusek. Darknes retreat not only opens up path to oneself, but also after some time, you can tune in to the finer vibrations. Darkness therapy is also very significant helper for lucid dreaming and astral travel. Let your mind relax come to rediscover your natural abilities that are suppressed to a minimum by our consumer society.

Darknes therapy close to Nymburk is operated in a specially adapted brick house, which is used only for this purpose. In addition to three retreat rooms, there is cozy teahouse (only for participants), which is available before and after retreat. The rooms are equipped by orthopedic mattress, antialergic pillows and duvets, yogamatts and musical instrument. Each room has its own bathroom. The price is from 4500 CZK per week.

What is Darkness Therapy

Darkness retreat is form of therapy where the person practicing it is for week in a total darkness. In this darkness are done all daily routines such as eating, shower or exercise. Darkness therapy was long ago widely used in many spiritual traditions. Today, we are coming back to it for many reasons. The most interesting factor is from our point of view, the cyclicality of the earth and at what stage we are now. Darkness is yin, feminine energy, which is now waking up after a long period of yang. The Cult of the Mother Earth is now really on the rise and the female part in all of us is awakening on many levels. Darkness is also extremely important for proper secretion of hormones, especially melatonin.
"To be sure, I am a forest, and a night of dark trees: but he who is not afraid of my darkness, will find banks full of roses under my cypresses. And even the little God may he find, who is dearest to maidens: beside the well lieth he quietly, with closed eyes."

Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Why darkness therapy?

Darkness retreat helps on physical, mental and emotional level. What will happen in the dark is always very individual. Important is, that darkness creates ideal conditions for many to be solved. Today, we work a lot on the masculine principle, therefore, our body and mind solves what is acute or currently important. But if we reduce input of information by 70% that we get via eyes, we get a chance to resolve issues on which we in everyday hustle have no time.

How the retreat goes darkness therapy

On the start day arrive at 18:00 (possible otherwise). We'll talk in our cozy teahouse, we will show you environment, we’ll give you food, and then it is up to you when you switch off the light and plunge into the darkness. Every day we provide consultation, and bring fresh food and herbal tea. We enter the room in two, but if you wish on particular day to only talk to one of us, it is fine (women sometimes don’t wish to share sensitive sexual topics in the presence of a man ...).

In the last day of retreat we’ll wake you up and spend a while with you in our tearoom. Afterwards you still have time to get packed, hygiene and adaptation :-). It is possible that after emerging from the darkness, you will not be able to drive right away, we take you on the train or you can spend time walking in the beautiful Elbe Valley, also teahouse is for you to sit and settle if you need to.

In the darkness, you are locked from the outside so no one can disturb you, but from inside you can anytime quit or interrupt. In case of emergency, you will have a lamp in the room that you can use.

Food during the Darkness Therapy

Diet in the dark is vegan or vegetarian (everything is by agreement). We cook homemade meals from quality goods grown in the region. You can also practice fasting. However, I recommend that only to people very experienced in fasting or experienced in darkness retreats. Both processes are very strong, so it is not appropriate to combine then for beginners.

What to take with you into Darkness Therapy

Take your comfortable clothing and hygiene supplies. In the room will be available some traditional musical instruments, and also have you your voice. However, if you wish you can even bring your own musical instrument.
