Easwaran describes passage meditation as a “come-as-you-are party”, and our Young Adult (YA) retreats reflect that. Everyone is welcome, and we hope you’ll feel relaxed and comfortable from the start.
In a group of 15-25 people, you’ll take part in interactive workshops and exercises designed to help you practice what you learn. There's also open time in the schedule, so you can rest or simply be on your own if you prefer.
Your group will focus on how to meditate, and the benefits of passage meditation. There will be lots of time for getting your questions answered.
About our style: we’re enthusiastic about passage meditation because we’ve seen the tremendous benefits in our own lives. Our retreats are focused on passage meditation as an effective way to train your mind. Our retreats are practical and enjoyable.
By the end of the weekend you’ll have
- Tried out passage meditation five times (each session is 30 minutes and you can meditate on a chair or on the floor)
- Experienced the benefits of a quieter and calmer mind
- Developed a personal plan for maintaining a successful practice at home (if you choose)
- Experienced a balanced schedule of learning, rest, chats over home-cooked meals, and optional activities like a long walk on our beautiful nearby beach.
