7 Days 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

A natural, resilient and relaxed way of being arises as we open to the ever-available essence of our true nature. Experiencing this reality through yoga postures, meditation, sacred movement and silence, we drop below and behind the habitual and conditioned patterns of thought and reactivity. The container of shared silence and the subtle practices during retreat, open our capacity to recognize what is always here and who we are, the pure awareness. From this embodied remembering, balance, vibrancy, and peace are restored in ourselves, reconnecting with our deepest and most reliable resource.

Program

In this Silent Meditation, Breathwork and Yoga Retreat, through the practices of meditation, breathwork, yoga asana, yin yoga, pranayama, meditative movement, yoga Nidra, breathwork, restorative poses, self-inquiry, silence and free time in the natural world we have an opportunity to more clearly see and release the conditioning that does not serve us.

The purpose of spiritual practice and teachings is to help us find freedom from the limiting habits, patterns, behaviors and beliefs we have absorbed from our culture and families so that we may live from our true self – our 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 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 we offer in our 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 us from the peace of our 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 we 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 our natural state. This silent community creates a supportive environment in which to surrender to the inner silence, allowing us to question our conditioned beliefs and surrender to the truth of our 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.
