Transforming Your Life Through Meditation is a five-and-a-half-day residential retreat that allows participants to fully immerse in an exploration of the inner refuge, the true source of healing. You will be introduced to the stillness of body, silence of speech, and spaciousness of mind as the three doors that connect you to the transformative power of this refuge. Through the daily practice of yogas of movement and breath you will explore the sacred architecture of the subtle energy centers and channels. Singing sacred syllables, you can clear blockages and open to the genuine warmth of being. You will be guided to reflect upon challenges that limit the fullness of your life, and learn how to bring these challenges to your practice in order to release them. Join us for this unique opportunity to deepen your relationship with yourself while being supported by the collective presence and companionship of the group.
This retreat is open to everyone, though having some experience in meditation is recommended. It will be is ideal for those wishing to deepen their meditation practice by exploring the meditation methods of the 3 Doors in more depth than in possible in a weekend seminar. It will also be an excellent preparation for those interested in entering into the next 3 Doors Academy.
