Learn how to meditate for the first time, or learn how to meditate with more concentration and upliftment if you already meditate.

You will learn:

  • An effective technique to help you concentrate
  • How to sit comfortably so your body is not an obstacle to inner peace
  • How to begin a daily practice of meditation
  • Ways to experience the benefits of meditation throughout your day
  • How to keep your meditation practice fulfilling so that you want to continue

You’ll leave with the techniques and understanding you need to sustain a meditative practice.

Your weekend will include physical exercises to aid relaxation, and written lessons to help you get the best possible start on your meditation practice.

During this weekend retreat, you have the best setting for learning how to meditate. At The Expanding Light you’ll feel the uplifting peace of more than 40 years of people's devoted meditation practice. The welcoming and relaxed atmosphere here, the daily practice of meditation after yoga postures, the humor and joy of the staff, and the wonderful fellow students – all will help you relax and experience inner peace.

Thank you for opening my eyes, heart, and brain to meditation. Even though I didn’t know what to expect, I learned more than I could have imagined.
Ananda is a magical spiritual place. I also learned about being spiritual, which I didn’t think I had in me. My hopes are to continue what I learned. I will keep you posted.  —S. Schochie

I just returned from the Learn How to Meditate retreat. I am meditating everyday, so far, and feel that a door opened for me. Thank you for all your dedicated work. — Christine Ely
