  • I knew that Sarah could help me to learn to do what she does—help others realize their full potential. Sarah helped me to translate my passion and ideas into action. Working with her I discovered exactly what I was longing to do—help women discover a higher purpose for their lives!

  • My intention was to go on retreat and have a meaningful weekend and honor myself. Not only did I honor myself, I had the most incredible, transformational experience of my life.

  • Your meditation class was an amazing experience that I will not forget. After meditating with you, I haven’t ever felt like that in my whole life. Thank you.

    Lois R. Scottsdale, Arizona
  • I took a meditation class with Sarah and with my meditation practice, I find myself clear of what I need and want, and I'm more trusting of my inner voice. I no longer take anti-depressants (which I have been on for years), and I feel more secure in my self and my life.

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

Do you want to do more than just go on vacation? Make your next vacation meaningful with a meditation retreat. Whther you join us at a destination retreat or come to Sedona, being in retreat is a unique opportunity to unplug, spend time exploring meditation, and rediscover  appreciation for yourlife.

Some meditation and mindfulness retreats focus on cultivating creativity, others give you the opportunity to dive deep into your meditation practice, and there are those that offer the opportunity to explore and heal a particular emotional issue.

All of the McLean Meditation Institute’s retreats are secular in nature, yet are deeply spiritual and held in a safe atmosphere designed to encourage participants to find out who they are and what they really want, and to become more intimate with their life.

Each retreat includes instruction in meditation and mindfulness, powerful meditation practices, interactive exercises, mindfulness experiences, time in nature, and an opportunity to explore gentle yoga.

Meditation is an 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.

You’ll discover the secrets to how and why meditation works, and you’ll be guided into deep meditation—whether you are new at it or are a seasoned meditator. You’ll learn a sustainable practice of meditation so you can to create a mini-retreat every single day once you return home.

Each retreat is designed to create a touchstone of feeling whole and good—and a new perspective. What a great way to vacation!

When you return home from the retreat, you might notice some subtle changes at first. Perhaps you order something different on a menu, or have more patience with your children, or you notice you are less concerned about what people think. You might sleep better, feel more balanced and energized, or find more creativity or confidence. More profound changes might follow as you explore your relationship to your job, or where you live, or you find  a renewed purpose or passion in life.

Take some time to explore the upcoming retreats and workshops offered in Sedona, around the United States, or in Ireland, each retreat is held in a beautiful serene location. We’d love to have you join us.
