For information regarding dates for Weekend Retreats for meditators please email

TM® Weekend Retreat provides an opportunity to gain deep, rejuvenating rest through a structured program of extended TM practice along with profound knowledge about the development of higher states of consciousness. This unique experience results in a dramatic reduction of accumulated stress and tension. Ladies who have attended report that even one such weekend remarkably boosts energy, clarity, happiness, creativity and health for months afterwards. Stress and tension melt away more quickly, providing a deeper foundation for the development of consciousness as a field of all possibilities. Many women TM practitioners take time for a weekend retreat on a regular basis.

Highlights of the weekend

  • Extended practice of the Transcendental Meditation® technique
  • Discussion of personal experiences with lady leaders in the TM® organization
  • Beautiful videotaped talks on the growth of higher states of consciousness by TM’s founder, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, as well as other leading thinkers and scientists.
  • Personal instruction in easy-to-practice Maharishi YogaSM Asanas and a simple neuro-respiratory breathing technique of Pranayama. These gentle mind/body programs are effective in helping to remove surface stress and strain and smoothing the way to deepen your TM practice.
  • Sharing a weekend of personal growth with other women
  • Delicious organic vegetarian cuisine, including fresh locally grown vegetables in the summertime

All of this is enjoyed in a deeply nourishing, blissful, peaceful atmosphere, in the company of other meditators. You will enjoy meetings, meals and walks outside in the countryside with your fellow course participants.
