Chopra Meditation and Yoga Retreat
About 8 years ago, I started waking up feeling flat-lined. It was taking a little more effort to be happy. Which is really saying a lot, because I tend to be an optimistic person. I usually see the good in everything. My family often jokes about my memory being selective toward only the good memories and I would say that’s probably true. I have endured many losses (as have most people) and the gift in them, has been to focus on the good and appreciate life.
But, at this particular time in my life, It was like my starting point had dropped. This was an interesting time for this to be happening, because my kids were healthy and happy, I had a great marriage, my parents were well, we were in the best financial position of our lives, we had a comfortable home and a nice new office, money in the bank, etc.. On the outside, it was looking like I really had it all.
But in the background of my mind, something kept telling me to meditate again. I hadn’t meditated in a few years, because life was good. After learning how to meditate in College, I only meditated when things were especially challenging in my life.
So, I started on a meditation journey which has literally changed the course of my life (there’s always a gift in there somewhere). I started meditating daily and went on several retreats, one being Seduction of Spirit at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, CA.
If you’re looking for an easy, enjoyable, beginner meditation retreat, this is a great start. You’ll learn a personalized mantra (a vehicle to help you access heightened levels of awareness). You’ll see a change in yourself within a few weeks of practicing (if not sooner). I’ve heard many people say they slept better after the first day. It was this retreat that inspired me to become a meditation teacher, so I recommend it wholeheartedly.
