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

Have a little time off? Do more than just go on vacation. Make your next vacation meaningful. Make your vacation one of peace, rejuventation and an immersion into meditation.

Being on a meditation retreat for a day or a week can be a unique opportunity to unplug, spend time exploring your own inner world, and to find more appreciation for your life. \

A meditation retreat can be a reset button and can even create a new normal: one where you are more present to what matters to you, responsive rather than reactive, and have a deep inner peace.

Some of our 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 retreats that Sarah McLean facilitates are secular in nature, yet are deeply spiritual. She says she teaches techniques, not traditions.

Sarah creates a safe and open atmosphere designed to encourage participants to find out who they are and what they really want, and to become more intimate with their lives.

Each retreat includes instruction in meditation and mindfulness, deep meditation practices, interactive exercises, mindfulness experiences, time in nature, and some offer 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.

Each retreat is designed to create a touchstone of feeling whole and good—and a new perspective. It’s a meditation vacation!

In a meditation retreat with Sarah McLean, you’ll discover the secrets to how and why meditation works, and whether you are new at it or are a seasoned meditator, you’ll learn a sustainable practice of meditatio.

When you return home you can bring the practices with you, so you can create a mini-retreat every single day. You also might notice that you are experiencing some subtle changes. Perhaps you order something different on a menu, or have more patience with your children, or you are less concerned about what people think.

You might sleep better, feel more balanced and energized, or find more creativity or confidence. With a continued meditation practice, 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, or at a world class destination in the United States or Europe. Each retreat is held in a beautiful serene location. Do something sweet for yourself.
