Registration for all Online retreat types for January to March 2021 is now open. Our offerings now include a new introductory weekend retreat. All retreat schedules are in Pacific Standard Time.
Free Ongoing Programs
These programs are available to you throughout the year and are run by the BMCM presenting team.
Our free, one-hour introductory webinars are an easy way to explore passage meditation and get your questions answered. There are no prerequisites, and everyone is welcome!
Introductory Weekend Online 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 Online 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.
Weeklong Online Retreat
This retreat is designed to put your meditation first, every day. For five consecutive days, you have a rare opportunity to focus completely on your practice of the eight-point program.
Setu Half-Week Online Retreat
This retreat is based on Easwaran’s concept of setu (Sanskrit for “bridge”). Death is not the end of life but the closing of a chapter, and what comes next is shaped by how we think and live today. Setu retreats are for people who are 65 and older, or for anyone facing a life-threatening illness.
This is the most immersive program we offer - a package of at-home and online components over five months. It could be right for you if you’re a dedicated passage meditator, you’ve attended several weeklong retreats online or in-person, and you are deeply moved to contribute your own life to a spiritual renaissance that brings light to our troubled times.
In-Depth Online Course: Introduction to Meditation
This course will give you everything you need to start your practice of the eight-point program of passage meditation.
