Heart-Based Meditation

A weekend retreat

May 19-21, 2023 - in Montpelier, VT

A spacious weekend of rest & connection

We encourage you to give yourself the gift of retreat as an opportunity to let go of your day-to-day responsibilities and to rest deeply. Many of us have found that this format truly facilitates deep connection, impactful healing and powerful transformation. 

While is retreat is for practitioners of Heart Based Meditation, there is still time for you to learn the technique before the retreat!

Experience the power of group meditation and community connection as we dive into the deeply healing practice of Heart-Based Meditation.


The weekend is designed around time-tested meditation sequences that include time for personal movement and stretching, breathwork and rest periods to give you the maximum integration benefits. This is an amazing way to deepen your practice and bring deep healing to your nervous system. We also create space for small group sharing to facilitate connection throughout the weekend.

Setting time aside for our personal growth has great potential for healing, enhancing our relationships and creating a powerful, positive ripple effect in our lives. We hope you will join us and experience it for yourself!
