Rolling Meadows, is a 100 acre meditation and yoga retreat center over-looking the hills of coastal Maine.
Our secluded, hilltop retreat center provides a quiet environment for spiritual renewal supported by the practices of yoga, meditation and the undisturbed beauty of the natural world.
Scheduled silent meditation and yoga retreats for up to 11 participants are offered throughout the year in an 1840’s renovated New England farmhouse on 100 acres of walking trails, fields, gardens and a spring-fed swimming pond. From the sun-filled rooms, the expansive views create a feeling of openness while relaxing in the intimate atmosphere of a farm built 150 years ago.
When not at Rolling Meadows, we offer Yoga Retreats in India, Costa Rica, and Italy.
The practices of meditation, classical hatha yoga, yin and restorative yoga, pranayama, and self inquiry create the flow of the day with personal time between sessions for solitude, reflection, enjoying the beauty and peace of the land and walking the extensive trails that weave thru out the property.
The yoga and meditation retreats provide a supportive environment to begin or deepen practices, to shed light on habituated patterns of behavior, to take personal time for digesting life experience and to recognize the ease and peace of your True Nature.
The resident teachers, Sunyata (Patricia) and Surya offer the rare opportunity of shared silence during the yoga retreats, except during the sessions. Silence is restful, being the mirror of your natural state. The silent community creates a supportive environment for opening to inner silence, allowing the body and mind to quiet while being aware of conditioned beliefs and the ever available presence of your True Nature.
USA Today, Boston.com, Travel & Leisure.com and Outside Magazine have rated Rolling Meadows Retreat one of the top ten places to take a yoga retreat.
Sunyata’s (Patricia) book, Sustenance, is now available here

The retreat I took last year completely changed my life. I learned invaluable lessons of acceptance, love, and peace. After struggling for a very long time, I finally felt understanding. Many people have asked where the shift originated, and I always pinpoint it at your retreat. I am so grateful for the time i spent at Rolling Meadows.
