The Wisdom of the Heart
Meditation and Yoga Retreat
November 9 – 12, 2018

Rolling Meadows

In this Meditation and Yoga Retreat, through the practices of meditation, yoga asana, yin yoga, pranayama, yoga nidra, restorative poses, self-inquiry, silence and free time in the natural world we will explore and discover for ourselves what spiritual traditions thru the ages have encouraged us to follow: the wisdom of an open heart that guides us to live as the ever-present unity and love that we always are beyond our conditioned patterns of thought.
