About the Event

Dr. Miles Neale, Dr. Emily Wolf & Mary Reilly Nichols 

As the Indic mind science traditions of Buddhism and Hatha Yoga have come into dialogue with modern psychology and brain science, we’ve begun to learn how they facilitate profound healing and transformation.  This retreat will explore the science and practical application of three Indic approaches to mind-body health. Dr. Neale will explore how deep mindfulness and yoga postures promote self-healing and personal transformation. Dr. Wolf will show how mind-clearing works as a crucible for social healing and altruistic engagement. And Mary Reilly Nichols will reveal how the tapping the subtle yogic nervous system through breath-work and chanting helps us learn the highest levels of blissful altruism modeled by living masters. The retreat will weave together talks and discussion with guided practice of a range of yoga practices and meditation techniques. 

It is recommended that you wear comfortable clothing and please bring a yoga mat if you have one, otherwise one will be provided for you.
