Nothing accelerates inner growth like these retreats. The results are truly awe-inspiring. I invite you to give this gift of love to yourself for the benefit of all beings.
-Paul Dugliss, M.D.
Physician, Heart-based Meditation Teacher
“I have done so many yoga retreats where I have done some extreme things and the restfulness that came to me through this retreat process is golden. I am super grateful because I have an awareness now about how restfulness can be such a healing agent in my life and in my constitution. Most of all the nervous system which I felt depleted feels so strong, clear and balanced.”
“I received so many blessings, insights and lessons… My heart has been completely transformed, it has expanded so much I don’t even know how to describe it, but I feel it and I feel so incredibly blessed and so grateful.”
Cat Cornell, Massage Therapist
“I have been transformed again, and I just feel so much love and so full of love. It is just so wonderful to think how you can become family with people in such a short period of time. I experienced a filling up of love beyond anything else and that is really what matters to me is being able to give love and receive love. I want to take that with me wherever I go, to whoever I meet.”
From beginners to advanced meditators, these retreats can offer a wealth of growth and immense healing on all levels... No dogma, no make-believe, these retreats are the real knowledge and real experiences. I can't think of anyone who would not benefit from these retreats.

Heart-based Meditation 2020 Annual Retreat
The Healing Power of Consciousness
April 26 - May 1, 2020
Art of Living Retreat Center
Boone, North Carolina
Our healing capabilities often lay dormant until we learn how to tap into their source and open to the infinite potential we hold within. We invite you to join us for an enlightening exploration of the facets of the heart and the healing power of your own consciousness. This retreat will help you discover the keys to healing on all levels of life and give you the tools to access them within your own being.
Come experience the transformation that is possible within the container of retreat and the support of spiritual community. We will dive deep into Heart-based Meditation and life-changing practices that will reveal your inner source of healing through the window of the spiritual heart.
We encourage you to give yourself the gift of retreat as an opportunity to let go of your day-to-day responsibilities and enjoy deep rest, rejuvenation, healing and connection. Nourish yourself in communion with the outstanding beauty of nature and delicious organic, vegetarian food at the Art of Living Center in Boone, NC. This is a rare chance for profound self-care on many levels. We hope you will join us.
