"We tend to think of meditation in only one way. But life itself is a meditation." - Raul Julia

Meditation and Rounding Weekend: A quiet meditation retreat 
July 28 & 29  Saturday 11:00-6:00 and Sunday 9:00-5:00

Join us for two days of silent meditation and grounding a combination of restorative yoga and mindful meditation.  Rounding is a systematic procedure derived from the ancient Veda* that's designed to purify the mind and body at the deepest level. This process consists of a specific sequence of easy yoga poses (asanas), balancing breath work (pranayama), meditation, and horizontal rest.

The simplicity and efficiency of the technique produces powerful results. Performing the proper progression with the correct intention allows deeper rooted stresses to release and brings the nervous system back into balance.

Effortless purification of the mind and body through Rounding can bring you to a greater state of happiness, clarity and peace more quickly. Practicing multiple Rounds on this retreat weekend will be equivalent to 3-6 months of meditation.

It's easy to learn regardless of your physical fitness and you can incorporate this advanced practice into your daily life at home for enhanced benefits.
