Vedic Meditation (VM) is a science-based technique that absolutely anyone can learn, and millions have. It has been proven to make you more content, less stressed, more productive and adaptable to the demands of life. You will walk-away with a self-sufficient meditation practice, through correct guidance, group accountability and knowledge sessions while being supported in Soma’s sanctuary to elevate and fall in love with your new life skill. Soma’s Meditate course is designed for individuals of all levels. Every person that has attended our retreats - led by Soma founder and master teacher Gary Gorrow - has left Soma with the skills and knowledge of meditation, finding inner peace wherever they are.
On the last day of the retreat, you will have the option of joining our Rounding Deep Day to experience the ancient art of Rounding. Rounding is a unique sequence of very simple asanas, breathwork and meditation designed to release significant amounts of stress in a short period of time. This technique has been used for thousands of years, allowing us to access the depths of our awareness, release layers of tension and fatigue from the nervous system and provide a palpable sense of peace and stillness that allows us to adapt to life's challenges more easily.
At Soma, we often talk about our “life toolbox”, which we describe as our arsenal to regulate our nervous systems and allow clarity to deal with life’s day-to-day. As well as learning VM and Rounding, Soma co-founder Peter Ostick will lead the team in knowledge sessions guiding the group in “finding comfort in uncomfortable situations” to further your tools to create space within yourself and your thoughts.
