Meditation Retreats

Despite progress in technology and medicine, people in today’s world continue to suffer greatly from anxiety and depression. The practice of meditation enables one to discover peace within oneself, allowing one to overcome inner turmoil and unlock enormous hidden potential.

During the 1970s-early 80s, the renowned sage Baba Muktananda was one of the first and foremost teachers to bring the ancient teaching of meditation to the West, creating a “Meditation Revolution.” In continuation of that tradition, Meditation Retreats at Shanti Mandir, Walden, provide a powerful atmosphere in which to deepen one’s understanding and experience of meditation.

All are welcome, and no experience with meditation is necessary.
