Mindfulness & More - Residential

10-day Meditation Retreat

October 30 - November 8 2020

Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center  Downingtown PA

Each day gets deeper and more delicious, for a classic ten days of meditation and other practices that support your spiritual development.  Gurudevi Nirmalananda will teach both mindfulness and yoga's meditative practices, showing you their differences and similarities.  In addition, you get help with your aches and pains, on both the physical and mental-emotional levels.  

The ultimate goal is the "More" named in the title.  Experiential knowing (vidya) of your own Self (svaroopa) is easy when you meditate with a Master.  More than mere teachings, her presence easily up-vibes you to a higher frequency within.  This is the first time she's offered a meditation retreat in the ten-day format, so make your plans now.  Limited space available.
