To gain a meditation experience that is sublime and real, meaningful and powerful, one must prepare the body, mind and heart for the experience. Asana, breath training and pranayama practices that are at once kind and also able to take us gently beyond our usual self-imposed limitations, are key to experiencing meditation in a real way that is both personal and universal. Practices that guide us from the very real experience of living in a body in this world, to the very real experience of the subtle nature and beauty of our being and the world we live in are a great preparation for the even more powerfully subtle experiences meditation has to offer.

Great teachers and practitioners have passed down time-tested methods that we can today follow to experience greatness in our own being, to feel the passion of life, and the joy of living, the beauty of the sublime in us and around us.

Join Shari for this retreat in the Pocono Mountains where one can truly and deeply relax, practice asana, pranayama and meditation, and come away with peace of mind and a greater sense of self and the world. The natural surroundings immediately allow the body and mind to shift into release and rest. That coupled with the practices to soothe, nourish, and strengthen allow the heart, mind and body to restore vitality and create peace and harmony.
