Dear friends,

We are excited to invite you to a 3-day meditation retreat at the beautiful Saranam retreat center in West Virginia. This retreat will focus on mindfulness meditation, trauma healing, and spiritual practice, offering a transformative experience in the heart of nature.

During this retreat, you will be guided through practices that cultivate deeper awareness, presence, and compassion toward yourself and others. Together, you will explore techniques for healing from past traumas, as well as mindfulness practices that can help you uncover inner freedom and fulfillment.

Saranam retreat center is a stunning location, nestled within the serene forests of West Virginia. The natural beauty and peaceful atmosphere create an ideal setting for your inner journey.

Your accommodation at the retreat center will be comfortable, providing a restful space to reflect and recharge. All meals will be provided, ensuring that you are nourished and energized throughout your stay.
