nourish + restore

"Rest is the basis for action." - Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

For thousands of years, meditators have come together to retreat from their daily responsibilities for a few days and award themselves the gift of turning within and enjoying deep rest.  Through diving deeply into meditation and enjoying knowledge about expanding happiness and cultivating higher states of consciousness, meditators leave retreats at the end of the weekend with a profoundly revolutionized understanding of the world and their role within it.

Join us this fall in Texas, where we will honor this ancient tradition of community and retreat.  Meditators from all over the U.S. will come for an intimate weekend of relaxation and restoration, and will leave feeling refreshed and nourished from the inside out!

What is Rounding?


Vedic Meditators will learn and practice Rounding, an advanced technique which combines simple, gentle yoga postures and breath work with your current meditation program.  Practicing multiple rounds a day on retreat can yield levels of rest and stress release that is equivalent to up to 6 months of regular meditation. 


Rounding retreats are a unique opportunity to take your practice to a new level by gaining the deepest levels of rest available.  Releasing layers of accumulated stress will leave you feeling refreshed and revitalized for months to come.
