Description

Learn to develop or expand your personal meditation practice with the founders of the Holistic Life Foundation—Ali Smith, Atman Smith, and Andres Gonzalez.

Explore topics such as finding time to meditate with modern schedules, creating a meditation space, and carrying your meditation into your life. Experience a variety of meditation practices—including mindfulness meditation, mantra meditation, subjective meditation, guided meditation, walking meditation, music meditation, and more.

In addition to the history and philosophy of meditation, HLF shares ways to support your practice through reflective tools and journaling techniques—all in a fun, informative, relaxing, and rejuvenating environment.

This retreat is ideal for meditators of all levels, including those who have never meditated and are curious about the practice, those who think meditation is not for them, and those with years of experience looking to deepen their practice.
