Immerse yourself in meditation and reconnect to the deepest part of you.

Many people desire a meaningful vacation—that’s the aim of meditation retreats. Whether for a day, a weekend, or even a whole month, a meditation retreat is a period of time away from your everyday activities, distractions, and responsibilities. During this retreat you have a unique opportunity to develop more self-awareness and appreciation for life. You will experience more clarity and peace which will result in mind-body healing.

The meditation retreats featured through the McLean Meditation Institute are themed to address issues many of us face in our daily lives. Some meditation retreats focus on cultivating creativity, or uncovering and healing a particular emotional issue. Other meditation retreats are religious, and can include prayer, or other spiritual practices. Many are secular in nature and are attended by those who are looking for stress reduction, healing, and a new perspective on life. A meditation retreat leaves a lasting impression. Take some time to explore our upcoming retreats and workshops, both in our Sedona home among the majestic red rocks, or those that we bring to other serene locations around the world.

A meditation retreat creates a memory of feeling whole and good—what your life can be. It’s one of the touchstones for more meaningful life and a new perspective. McLean Meditation Institute’s retreats are secular in nature yet can be deeply spiritual. Its safe atmosphere designed to encourage participants to find out what’s inside: who they are and what they really want, and to become more intimate with their own awareness and their own life.

The retreats include powerful meditation practices, mindfulness experiences, time in nature, and gentle yoga. There is always time for silence, recreation, and focused discussions, and it’s guaranteed that you’ll discover something new about yourself.

Everyone will dive deep into meditation—whether they are new at it or are seasoned meditators. Meditation is a very subtle yet undeniably powerful practice to create more balance in the body, spaciousness in the mind, and a new appreciation for everything and everyone in your life. Our goal is to teach a deep practice of meditation so you can to create an opportunity to retreat every single day. The meditation itself is the retreat. And when you return home, your new awareness will follow. The changes may be subtle at first. You might order something different on a menu, have more patience with your children, or notice you are less concerned about what people think. You might feel more balanced, peaceful, creative, or confident. There also could be more profound changes as you explore your relationship to your job, or where you live, or you find  a renewed purpose or passion in life.
