Travel + Leisure Feature

We’re so excited to share that the Art of Living Retreat Center is featured in the June 2019 edition of Travel + Leisure!

In this article, the Art of Living Retreat Center’s own Medha Garud guides Michael Joseph Gross through his very first Panchakarma cleanse, where he experiences the unexpected peace and calm that comes along with cleansing your body and mind. Through prana-filled vegetarian meals, abhyanga massage, and one whole day of the ultimate inner cleanse, Michael finds his bliss.

He says, “Outside the window there are three trees: two pines and a maple. I come to know them better than any other trees I’ve ever seen. The trees are there all day, while insecurity, anxiety, fear, anger, resentment, mourning, and regret take turns on me, hard; loves, dreams, plans, and memories–of tastes, of faces–take turns on me, too. None of these thoughts are me; I am only their observer. Branches catch the light from many angles, east to west, morning to evening. I am there for all of it.”
