Immerse yourself in meditation and reconnect to the deepest part of you.
Do more than just go on vacation. Make your next vacation meaningful and dive deep into peace, rejuventation and meditation. Whether you come to a destination retreat or visit Sedona, being on a retreat is a unique opportunity to unplug, spend time exploring meditation, and rediscover appreciation for your life. It can help you create a new normal.
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 facilitates are secular in nature, yet are deeply spiritual. They are 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 lives.
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, or at our destination retreats in the United States and Europe. Each retreat is held in a beautiful serene location. We’d love to have you join us.
