THE THEME
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE: 
Finding unity in times of division

We’re living in a dynamic period of time which is causing much upheaval in both the collective and in our individual lives. During our day-long retreat, you will learn how to cultivate unconditional love for your partner, your family, your neighbor and even those you disagree with on social media. 

WHAT IS ROUNDING?

Rounding (aka Industrial Strength Meditation) is a systematic sequence of techniques derived from the Veda to deeply purify the body and the mind. 

 

The series consists of a very specific set of easy asanas (yoga poses), pranayama (breathwork), meditation, and savasana (lying down). The technique allows deeply rooted stress to effortlessly release and rapidly brings about greater states of well being and clarity. If you've learned Rounding before, your technique will be refined for an even more profound experience.

 

Rounding requires no yoga training and can be learned by anyone regardless of level of fitness, and the technique can be brought home to enhance your current meditation practice. 

 

Prerequisite: Vedic Meditation Course

    If you live in today's modern world, it is impossible to not be affected by heavy demands and inordinate amounts of stress. Every time you look at the news, you see the affects of a society under too much pressure. The only way to change the collective is at the individual level.
