Meditation Retreat in Rishikesh India

Meditation Retreat in Rishikesh India is designed for training the mind. The Retreat offers different techniques that could help us experience Meditation.

We provide these methods which we can use as tools to attain what is already within us - relaxation, withdrawal, concentration and so on. During the retreat, an individual is expected to follow certain strict disciplines so that the experience of a subtler level can be had.

Meditation Retreat is organised for a certain technique which is termed such as - Antar Mouna Meditation Retreat, Prana-Vidya Meditation Retreat, Yoga Nidra Meditation Retreat and so on.

How it works - From our experiences, we know the ability of mind which can witness, identify with external and internal objects, visualise, imagine, to hold on to any particular internal and external object.

In the retreat, we learn how to use these tools systematically.
