The practices of meditation, classical hatha yoga, yin and restorative yoga, pranayama, and self inquiry create the flow of the day with personal time between sessions for enjoying the natural world and walking the extensive trails that weave thru out the property.
The form of the retreats provide a supportive environment, allowing you to begin or deepen practices, to shed light on habituated patterns of behavior, to take personal time for digesting life experience and to recognizee the ease and peace of our true nature.
A container of shared silence is maintained during the retreats, except during the sessions. Silence is restful, being the mirror of your natural state. The silent community creates a supportive environment in which to surrender to the inner silence, allowing the body and mind to quiet while being aware of our conditioned beliefs and the ever available presence of your True Nature.
Rolling Meadows offers a full yearly schedule of small group yoga and meditation retreats in a fully restored 1840s New England farmhouse in mid-coast Maine.
The 100 acre yoga retreat center is located on a dirt road in a rural area in mid-coast Maine 15 miles from the coastal town of Belfast. It is situated on a high ridge from which there are expansive views of the distant hills and the uninterrupted sky.
Extensive flower and organic vegetable gardens, streams, woods, walking paths, a spring -fed pond for swimming and a small flock of sheep grazing in the pasture invite one into relationship with the slower rhythms of the natural world.
The simple elegance of the farmhouse provides a serene and restful setting for yoga and meditation groups of up t0 10 people in comfortable rooms. Participants can relax in the sun room, library, living rooms, screen porch or by the woodstove in the winter months.
