Daylong Meditation Retreat
with Ram Dev Dale Borglum

Saturday, June 25th

$40 Early bird pricing until June 18th
$45 After 

Come be a part of satsang [like-minded community] for a rich daylong meditation before the holiday weekend

We invite you to join us for a dedicated meditation retreat. This is not a workshop, this is a meditation retreat. Dive into a rich meditative exploration of the healing path that ultimately brings us into a state of fierce compassion, focus, empowerment, and boundless spaciousness.

Dedicating a day for practice in the midst of a busy summer reinforces for ourselves that practice is happening in every moment, regardless of season, day, time, or circumstance. We lessen the gap between “I’ll meditate on that day and time” versus “Everything is a meditation.” 

The guided meditations will bring us into deepened awareness and include all stages of the meditative path from embodied mindfulness to compassion and open heartedness to tantric deity practices, and finally, non-duality non-practice.

This retreat will be a combination of guided sitting and walking meditations interspersed with short dharma talks. Ram Dev will teach walking meditation for those who haven’t practiced it before.

You are also welcome to just listen to the instructions and meditate in any way you’d like as though we were together in person in community. 

It is encouraged to make this a day of silence except for the Q&A sessions and discussions with Ram Dev.

A private zoom link will be emailed a few days before the retreat.

Online Retreat Preparation

Creating Your Retreat Environment 

Meditation practice is supported and enhanced by a tight retreat container in which our normal activities and distractions are kept to a minimum. This container enables us to go deeply into practice. During this online retreat we invite you to do your best in creating this container in your own home to get the most out of our time together.

  • Turn off social media, news and other entertainment. We recommend turning it off for the entire day, but at the least, for the entire duration of the retreat.

  • During the hourlong break, practice mindful movement, eating, drinking, and being with silence and stillness. Please refrain from phone calls, texts, and turning on the television. All of this will be there after the retreat is over.

  • If you live with other people in your home, inform them of the daylong retreat ahead of time.

Your Space

  • Pick a place where you will sit to receive teachings and to practice.

  • Be intentional about your choice of space. Where do you feel most awake, receptive and at ease? Where can you be undisturbed?

  • Set up your chair/cushion in advance, along with a side table for a notebook, water, and anything you’ll need during our sessions. Make sure you have an outlet nearby to plug in your computer.

  • Uplift your space in some way, perhaps with a flower or a candle, or a small altar.
