6 Day Meditation, Breathwork, and Silent Yoga Retreat in Maine, USA

Rolling Meadows, 83 Sullivan Road, Brooks, Maine, 04921, USA

Insightful Silent Yoga and Meditation Retreat in USA

With the support of yoga postures, pranayama, restorative poses, yin yoga, meditation, silence, breath work, meditative movement and unstructured time in nature, this yoga retreat will be an opportunity to experience and explore the peace and joy of being.

Most of us lead very busy lives. Demands of work, family and the complexity of simply living consume most of our waking hours. From early childhood we’ve been conditioned to achieve, improve and generally be more productive. Modern life with computers, cell phones and convenience food further feeds our addiction to a fast-paced life. While much of this activity has value, it can become unbalanced. There is little time to understand the art of being.

Rolling Meadows provides a serene and restful setting for yoga and meditation groups of up to 11 people in comfortable rooms. Participants can relax in the sunroom, library, living rooms, screen porch or by the woodstove in the winter months.

Program

In this retreat, through the practices of silent meditation, breathwork, yoga asana, Yin yoga, pranayama, meditative movement, yoga Nidra, breathwork, restorative poses, self-inquiry, silence, and free time in the natural world, you will have an opportunity to more clearly see and release the conditioning that does not serve you.

The purpose of spiritual practice and teachings is to help you find freedom from the limiting habits, patterns, behaviors and beliefs you have absorbed from culture and families so that you may live from you true self – your Sacred Self. This retreat is designed for those people willing to let go of the past and step into the vast unknown, the only place that true transformation can occur.

The various practices offered will not always follow conventional, currently popular practices of yoga and/or meditation. Participants should be prepared to explore various innovative and novel means of moving energy in the body/mind in order to increase their capacity for greater levels of awareness that exist beyond their conditioned and limited self.

Breathwork

Breathwork is a dynamic practice for releasing, purifying, healing and attuning with the Source. Bridging the conscious and subconscious, conscious breathing is one of the quickest ways to personal transformation, enhanced well-being, and the direct heart-opening experience of Divine Love. It is a profound part of the process Rolling Meadows offer in their retreats.

Breathwork is primarily an experience of yourself in relation to your inner landscapes and the innate healing ability of your own breath and your own psyche.

Yoga class

Yoga sessions include classical Hatha and Vinyasa, Yin yoga, and Restorative poses. You are encouraged fluid movement and personal exploration in the yoga classes to cultivate an internal reference point.

Pranayama brings awareness to the breath and increases the availability of Prana, the life-force. Self-Inquiry is an opportunity to awaken to the truth of who we are. The embodied recognition and experience of long-held patterns of conditioned behavior lifts the veil that keeps you from the peace of your true nature.

Meditation

Meditation periods are approximately 20-30 minutes and draw on the Vipassana and non-dual traditions. Guidance will be offered in breath awareness and in open attention with the focus to relax and simply be with what is, as it is, without manipulation, so that you may come to rest in the natural state of awareness.

Silent retreat

A container of shared silence is maintained during the yoga retreat, except during the sessions. Silence is restful, being the mirror of your natural state. This silent community creates a supportive environment in which to surrender to the inner silence, allowing you to question your conditioned beliefs and surrender to the truth of your being.

The morning after arrival participants are asked to refrain from social conversation with one another during meals and free-time. This is called “social silence.” This social silence ends after the morning session of the last day.

Note

This retreat is for those seriously committed to the work of self-transformation. It is not a spa or vacation. The use of electronic devices is prohibited. Participants must place their cell phones and electronic devices in the retreat office the first night of the retreat and remain at the facility for the duration of the retreat.

Everyone is asked to stay off computers and phones to allow for an undistracted experience and deeper connection with yourself. This also enhances everyone’s experience. The combined intention of unplugging from technology in retreat is essential for the focused work of looking within. An emergency contact number will be provided to give to loved ones.
