Patricia Brown has been teaching yoga and meditation retreats since 1981. Patricia's teaching is a quiet exploration of Awareness...Yin yoga, breath, gravity, silence, quiet sitting. She focuses on ease and naturalness and on noticing and sensing what we already are. She creates a silent, undistracted environment for developing a quality of listening from which a self-referenced practice and orientation to one's inner life can emerge.
Surya-Chandra Das began studying hatha yoga and meditation in 1988 and has taught classes and yoga retreats since 1990. His teaching is a blend of the various teachings he has experienced and his own explorations. Nondual Awareness or Presence is the foundation of the retreats. Surya is interested in helping participants understand the depth and breadth of Yoga - that it is so much more than performing asanas (postures) and can permeate every aspect of our lives well beyond the retreat.
More about Rolling Meadows
Rolling Meadows offers a full yearly schedule of small group yoga and meditation retreats in a fully restored 1840's New England farmhouse in mid-coast Maine. The simple elegance of the farmhouse provides a serene and restful setting for yoga and meditation groups of up to 10 people in comfortable rooms. Participants can relax in the sun room, library, living rooms, screen porch or by the woodstove in the winter months. Facing south to the surrounding countryside, the yoga and meditation room is filled with light, and is fully equipped with meditation cushions and yoga props.
Extensive flower and organic vegetable gardens, streams, woods, walking paths, a spring -fed pond for swimming and a small flock of sheep grazing in the pasture invite one into relationship with the slower rhythms of the natural world. Guests are invited to walk the extensive paths thru the woods and fields, take a wood fired sauna, swim or cross country ski in season and to rest in the quietude of uninterrupted time in the natural world.
Wholesome meals are prepared fresh three times daily. Much of the food comes from the extensive organic vegetable gardens on the property. Patricia and Surya have a passionate interest in understanding the relationship between a wholesome diet and vitality and the meals served on retreat reflect this commitment. The menu is vegetarian and includes dairy, and eggs. Special dietary needs can be accommodated with advance notice.
