Meditation + Sailing Day Retreats

“Mindfulness gives you time. Time gives you choices. Choices, skillfully made, lead to freedom.”

Bhante Henepola Gunaratana

The quality of our daily lives is very much dependent upon the choices we make, but in a world where days are filled with constant demands, stressors, and interruptions how does a mind full of constant chatter and a nervous system rooted in survival get to a place of calm and rest?

If you Googled this question, you’d get meditation as the first option and learning about mindfulness as a close second. Meditation has been a practice used for thousands of years to bring about more clarity, self awareness and peace.

If you think you don’t or can’t meditate, you have and you can! Resting in the delight of a sunset or skiing effortlessly and joyfully down the slopes, getting lost in the beauty of nature, and any flow state are all states of meditation. It’s a natural state for the body and one much needed to restore ourselves from the stresses of life.

Our Mediation and Sailing workshops are designed to introduce you to or strengthen your daily practices of mindful living and meditation. There are many doorways into meditation and some can be as simple as following your thoughts and feelings into a flow state. We teach different traditions and methods so you can enjoy the proven and vast benefits of meditation for mind-body healing.

“Reading makes a full man, meditation a profound man…”   Benjamin Franklin

Why sailing and meditation? Sailing has the ability to change our physiology as well as our psychology almost immediately because of its proximity to water, where you experience what has been coined the “blue mind” effect. It puts you in the present moment so that you experience a natural state of mindfulness and can embody this to take into your daily life. 

Our scheduled events are on Saturdays. We offer private, weekday day retreats for private group or corporate team events.

Upcoming Dates: Starting in June through November

$355/per person (all inclusive)     Limited to 16 Adventurers Per Session

“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes. Including you.”   Anne Lamott

When we allow ourselves to paint expressively, without rigid rules or expectations, something magical happens. The act of letting go and allowing our creativity to flow freely taps into our innermost emotions in a powerful way.

Expressive painting is more than just making art – it’s an outpouring of the heart and mind onto the canvas. As we let the brushstrokes, colors, and images emerge organically, we release all of the bottled up feelings, worries, and blocks we accumulate in our day-to-day lives.

We’re here to play, open the doorway to creativity, and make connections. Join our next event!
