Rolling Meadows Retreat

Meditation, Breathwork & Yoga Retreats

Change seems the way of things during these times. Rising to meet the present day challenges brings infinite potential and expansion as well as the opportunity to cultivate and refine the art of deep surrender.

After 22 years of being the stewards and teachers at Rolling Meadows and listening to the call of this time, Patricia and Surya have moved on, passing the evolution of Rolling Meadows to two of their students, Melissa Schneider and Peter Szar, dynamic manifesters, who will carry Rolling Meadows forward in their one energetic trajectory.

Patricia and Surya will continue to teach at Rolling Meadows and at other places of natural beauty around the world which support their long held belief that the inner work of self awareness and personal evolution is the greatest gift we can give to the world.

Their work continues from 40 years of experience, to offer the format of silent meditation, yoga, movement, and breathwork retreats in a spiritually focused process of self-transformation through the cultivation and recognition of Awareness.  

Their silent retreats offer an intimate, highly experiential and reflective experience. Sessions include meditation, classic yoga asana, yin, and restorative yoga, movement meditation, yoga nidra, breathwork, psycho-spiritual processes, writing, art, silence and communing with the natural world. 

In this supportive environment, away from the demands of daily routines, light is shed on habitual patterns of behavior. Time is given to digest life experience, and space opens to recognize the ease and peace of our True Nature.

Silent meditation, movement, breathwork and yoga retreats

Our meditation, movement, breathwork and yoga retreats offer a rare opportunity of shared silence, except during the sessions when questions and discussion may occur. The silent community creates a supportive environment for an opening to inner silence, allowing the body and mind to quiet while being aware of conditioned beliefs and the ever-available presence of our True Nature. 

Retreats are available on scheduled dates only which are listed on our calendar page here.

Participant from New Brunswick, Canada

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.
