My Silatha Journey began when I discovered meditation, and the calm and fulfilment it could bring to my busy, daily routine. Living, loving and breathing this new rhythm, has been the most beautiful gift in my life. I wish to share the Silatha Journey, enable you to light your inner glow and feel the difference in your life.’ Silatha Founder, Veroniek Vermeulen.
‘It all started in 2011, when I took time out from my career in senior corporate management, for a meditation retreat in Nepal. ‘I loved my job and enjoyed success, but I felt life was leading me. I wanted to regain control and consciously lead my life.
In the Himalayas, I had a life-changing realisation. I felt what it meant to be in the present moment. By contrast, our modern lifestyles are busy and preoccupied, we spend half of our time thinking about the past or future, rather than being in the moment.
I understood how meditation enables consciousness and peace, and this motivated me to transform the way I live my life.
In our modern Western lives, there is always more to desire and this is, by nature, deeply unfulfilling. Meditation offers an alternative, to connect inwards. It allows us to nurture our own inner quality and strengths for long-term pleasure and true fulfilment.
I continued my learning with retreats in monasteries in Vietnam and Myanmar, although I found the ‘glow’ was difficult to hold onto once back in everyday life. This is what sparked the idea to transform the ancient wisdom of meditation for modern lifestyles. This breathed life into the Silatha Journey.
I left my corporate career behind to self-fund Silatha. First, commissioning the transformation of the ancient mediation symbol the Dorje into a handcrafted necklace. Each set with one of ten gemstones that align to an inner quality to be nurtured.
Secondly, to make meditation easy to practice in everyday life, I developed the Silatha Meditation Course App with a series of guided meditations to introduce different techniques over 21 days. Learn to nurture your chosen quality and connect inwards, in about 15 minutes of practice each day.
I invite you to begin your own Silatha Journey and discover your inner source of lasting fulfilment and happiness.
A strong team behind Silatha makes it possible for you to experience this beautiful journey, please meet the fantastic Silatha team.
