The Art of Meditation with Maryon Maass

This ancient system is meant to explore the dimensions of meditation—from body, to breathing, to mind. At the level of the physical self, it will help you find a quiet stillness within. At the level of the breath, it will lead to an uncoupling from the tensions and negativity of daily life. At the level of mind, it will help you to learn to rest in a quiet center of being for the nervous system and the brain to benefit for long term. Beginners and seasoned students welcome.

Shavasana decreases heart rate, blood pressure, muscle tension, and general levels of anxiety.  It increases energy levels, boosts memory, and stimulates the ability to concentrate. It gives you a more easy sleep and brings a general sense of well-being.

Learning to relax consciously is a skill. Practice, and feel the peace within.
                     This benefits the nervous system thus eliminates stress in the body and mind.

 Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in shavasana (corpse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness. Included are gentle movements for rejuvenation. All levels welcome.

Silence Retreat
October 7–9 and 7–11
Silence Retreat View  Yoga is Samadhi  Silence Retreat Labrynith

Silence is the deepest and most authentic form of communication, both with others and within ourselves. It is the language that transcends the constant noise in our minds and allows us to experience our essence, our true Self, that purest state of being, a state of peace, joy, and love. Silence is not merely an absence of speech. It is a fullness of the mind; the mind filled with the flow of an energy stream rising from within. For such a silence one needs guidance. A guided silence helps the participant channel their emotional energies, directing them inward to the healing source of life force. The silence retreat guide takes care of the personality issues that arise in the participants through techniques of the ancient wisdom of the Himalayan Tradition.

San Damiano Retreat Center is located on a secluded property with beautifully forested hills and views of Mount Diablo. Its serene setting and high vibration lead the mind body effortlessly to stillness.

• Guided meditations
• Morning and afternoon restorative yoga and Awareness Through Movement lessons
