Meditation Retreat with Ajayan

View from Samadhi HouseWhen: Thursday eve, June 13 to Sunday noon, June 16 2019
Location: Samadhi House on San Juan Island, Washington state

Join us for a weekend of pure Being, rest, rejuvenation, and inspiration! In this meditation retreat, we will:

  • Review the essential principles of meditation to ensure you have deep, effortless, profound meditations every time.
  • Learn accessible advanced practices guaranteed to further deepen your meditation. These special techniques tangibly awaken subtle energies and open the energetic body, making meditation deep, effortless, and blissful. Ultimately, this develops a full connection with Source, Cosmic Energy, the Divine.
  • Explore what makes for real, lasting happiness that cannot be overturned by the ups and downs of life–and you will begin to develop that through your meditation practice.
  • Effortlessly begin to develop the “4 Immeasurables”: Loving Kindness, Compassion, Empathetic Joy, and Impartiality. This is common to Yogic and Buddhist traditions, and is echoed in many of the spiritual traditions of the world. Through the practices you’ll learn on this retreat, your heart will open to actually begin to live these practical ideals.
  • Enjoy the beauty of San Juan Island, especially Lime Kiln Park, with an optional daily walk and meditations in nature (weather permitting).

In sum, this retreat is a chance to connect much more deeply with your inner Source to emerge refreshed, with a new perspective and deepened sense of spiritual connection. Hope you can join us!

The Monday morning after the retreat, I felt so calm while doing some activity (such as driving).  I normally feel this calmness during a good meditation, but never felt this during activity. It felt really good. Since the retreat I’ve felt more mental clarity; I’m transcending almost everyday with the personal mantra (this never happened before); and I feel much more motivated towards my spiritual development. I am SO glad I attended the retreat.  Thank you for doing it!

I really enjoyed this weekend. I learned a lot and I love learning. And lots of meditation and hiking, all combined just what I needed. I started reading Effortless Mind and couldn’t put it down,  look forward to finishing it and starting Whispers and seeing you again at a future retreat.Rick Goeden

You may also attend the retreat and participate in meals but find your own accommodations, either in Friday Harbor or Roche Harbor (Samadhi House is almost equidistant between the two, about 15 to 20 minutes drive.) As San Juan Island is a hot tourist destination, and March is the off season, you can easily find accommodations on island. There is even camping just 7 minutes away.
