Course Description:
Peace, happiness, healing and transformation.

Rejuvenate yourself and your healing abilities with an incredible retreat in the Garrison Institute, a former Capuchin monastery overlooking the beautiful Hudson River. Earning 16 CE Hours has never been more relaxing.

Experience the transformational practices of meditation, yoga, self-inquiry, present moment awareness, self-compassion and noble silence, along with their clinical applications, in an ideal setting - the magnificent Hudson Valley. This perfect location is ideal for deepening your learning of both yoga and meditation! All levels are welcome.

The meditation and yoga retreat is a rich exploration into practices that cultivate happiness and healing. We will follow a balanced schedule of meditation, clinical teachings, and group discussion, gentle yoga movement, transformational practices, mindful eating, walking meditation, noble silence and deep rest. We will journal our responses to inquiry questions, practice emotional regulation skills, learn to witness thoughts, calm our nervous systems and experience inner quiet.
