Explore meditation, philosophy, and self.

This retreat-style training program will offer you the opportunity to explore meditation techniques based on deep inner science and to gain an understanding of methods for teaching them to others. You will be guided by Mark and Cristina in a variety of meditations anchored in the deep yogic science of Inner experience.

To help people connect, and dis- cover the tools that will allow this connection to happen and be maintained. A place where you come to learn balance, connect with nature, and share with others.
