Programs

  • Introductory Weekend Meditation Retreat

    Easwaran describes passage meditation as a “come-as-you-are party,” and our retreats reflect that. Everyone is welcome, and we hope you’ll feel relaxed and comfortable from the start.

  • Returnee Weekend Meditation Retreat

    A weekend retreat restores your energy and enthusiasm for the spiritual life, so that you can be at your best and help everyone else around you.

  • Senior Half-Week Meditation Retreat

    These retreats are based on the concept of Setu (Sanskrit for “bridge”). The Setu Program says that death is not the end of life but the closing of a chapter, and that what comes next is shaped by how we think and live today. Setu retreats are for people who are over 65, or facing a life-threatening illness.
