The Art of Living Retreat Center

Signature Meditation Retreats

Where health meets inner peace. joy. happiness.

Find your happiness. inner peace. joy.

All we ever experience is this moment, right now. So often the mind is crammed with thoughts or stresses that we miss what’s happening directly in front of us and consequently life itself. To be in the present moment, with a centered state of mind, is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and those around you. You gain freedom from self-doubt, cycles of negativity, and fear. It opens up space for you to live how you choose, not how your mind dictates. You feel more energized and alive, better able to flow through life’s peaks and valleys. Relationships improve, stress is reduced, mood is enhanced, and you experience greater enjoyment each day.

At the Art of Living Retreat Center, our immersive signature retreat experiences unlock the transformative power of holistic well-being, helping you foster vibrancy and balance in your life.

You drive up this mountain and it’s instant total bliss. It’s beautiful. Everything about it is magical.

1200x300

The perfect place to clear your mind.

Many people believe the mountains are the closest point to the heavens and we couldn’t agree more.  There are thousands of reasons to meditate in nature. It’s a place where wisdom and perception come alive. It activates our senses and makes letting go of worries easier. The usual distractions seem far away and unimportant. It’s easier to let go of worries (and electronic devices!!) when you’re communing with nature.
