“Within choiceless ever present awareness there is a choice; That choice is to be person or presence, head or heart, mind or being. Awareness will not be affected by this choice, but everything else will.”

“Whenever we meet together as presence, something beautiful takes place. We collectively rise above the level of the personal mind and come to rest fully inside our own Being”


This is an invitation to join Paul Hurcomb for a 5 day silent retreat of Satsang, meditation and self inquiry in this peaceful and relaxed location in the middle of nature in Skinnskatteberg. The main purpose of this retreat is to stop and be still and look inwards to discover your own true nature.

This retreat offers the potentiality to come to complete clarity of who you are beyond the mind made identity and personal history. It is a direct invitation to come to rest as the timeless and ever present Being. There will be daily Satsangs (meetings in truth), guided meditations, inquiries and walks in nature.

From previous participants:

‘The meditations, your teaching and the cumulative build up over the 5 days has yet again had a profound effect…And it’s not just the personal experience, but seeing how you work with each individual person – and with all of us as a group – that is so powerful. Your gentle, kind mix of knowledge, humour and love is really a devastating combination – breaks down all resistance and allows one to see and feel where it wasn’t possible before.’ – Anne

‘The simple recognition of what is always there and of what I am brings a deep peace. Not really an awakening as much as a slipping into what I seemed to already know. Loved also how Paul held and responded to everybody so sensitively – loved the power, clarity and humour with which Paul teaches. So touches and resonates with my being.’ – Sujan

“It was a humbling experience to be in a context where I can be very vulnerable and go into stillness. where I can put the spotlight on aspects of my being that i haven’t been able to look at before. I enjoyed listening to the other sharings, it was very insightful, emotional and I gained a better understanding for other people’s challenges and struggles and made it easier for me to empathise with other people.” – H.J

 Paul Hurcomb

Paul spent 12 years as a practicing Buddhist until 2002 when in the midst of deep suffering he had a profound awakening from mind identity to presence. This experience led him to leaving his job as a school teacher and spending long periods of time in South India. This was where he met his master Sri Mooji who introduced him to the self inquiry teachings popularised by the great sage Ramana Maharshi. It was during this time he recognised the self.

Since 2011 Paul has been holding simple meetings and retreats with groups of seekers in Spain, Uk and Sweden. Paul’s approach is natural, compassionate and warm, always combining the deep embodiment of presence with a direct, clear and authentic approach to spirituality.
