Meditation, Contemplative Arts & the Great Outdoors

This Spring Break, discover something new—about simply being. Being yourself, being in your body, experiencing nature with your raw senses. Meditation is a process of self-discovery that lets you tap into the basic vitality, openness and creativity that we all naturally possess.

In this six-day program, you will get a thorough grounding in the technique of meditation, whether you are a beginner or regular meditator, as well as have the chance to explore meditation in action through contemplative arts, outdoor activities and celebratory events.

Guided by a youthful staff of seasoned artists and practitioners, and set in the serene wonderment of Shambhala Mountain Center, Retreat in the Rockies is sure to be an eventful and outrageous journey. Awaken your senses, spontaneity and spirit with a spring break you will actually remember!

For those ages 18 – 25 only.
