Rolling Meadows Retreat

Rolling Meadows, is a 100 acre meditation and yoga retreat center over-looking the hills of coastal Maine, providing an environment for spiritual renewal supported by the practices of yoga and meditation. Scheduled silent yoga and meditation retreats for up to 11 participants are offered throughout the year.

The practices of meditation, classical hatha yoga, yin and restorative yoga, pranayama, and self inquiry create the flow of the day with personal time between sessions for solitude, reflection, enjoying the beauty and peace of the land and walking the extensive trails that weave thru out the property.

Patricia Brown

Patricia Brown (Sunyata) In my teaching I am interested in removing the boundaries of classic yoga asana, guiding students in a subtle, sensual, fluid exploration of embodied Awareness from which a self-referenced practice and orientation to one’s inner life can emerge.

Blending movement and stillness, and encouraging inner listening as the portal to the mystery beyond form, I offer a path to what lies beneath the surface, creating a sacred environment for students to explore through asana, pranayama, meditative movement and meditation, the ease, openness, compassion and inherent wisdom of Divine Love that is our true home.

The daily ritual of practice over 33 years continues to guide my life in an ever evolving embodied inquiry into who I am at the deepest level… it is this exploration that guides my teaching.

I first began studying yoga asana in the Iyengar community, and later with Angela Farmer and teachers of the Vanda Scaravelliapproach. Having a desire to deepen my practice, I began sittingVipassana meditation retreats with SN Goenka and with teachers from the Insight Meditation Society and Forest Refuge. Studies in meditative movement with Jungian based Authentic Movement and Continuum generated further inquiry into the subtlety of form and formlessness, the dance between movement and stillness, and the complimentary practices of yoga asana and meditation. The influence of teachers of Advaita, the non-dual tradition of Ramana Maharshi brought another thread into this tapestry of study, practice and teaching.

I developed Body Prayers – Yoga, Meditative Movement and Meditation Silent Retreats for Women, led yoga teacher trainings, have taught inquiry through meditative movement, and co-developed Rolling Meadows Yoga and Meditation Retreat Center in Maine. See more photos and other events by this presenter
