Yoga and Meditation Retreat

Lino Laure and Maxwell Starkhouse

Meditation Waterfall ImageThe tradition of practicing yoga and meditation (dhyana) are two complimentary systems. They have been around for thousands of years. Because of their universal and beneficial effects, they have both withstood the test of time. Many people from all walks of life enjoy the practice of yoga and meditation today in our modern world. Yet, their roots come from the rich traditions of the Vedic sciences of India.

About the Facilitator(s)

Lino LaureLino Laure has been practicing meditation for over twenty-five years.  A year after learning meditation, he had a spontaneous spiritual awakening, as the surge of kundalini energy awakened within him prompting a whole new level of life, self-awareness and direction. For over 16 years he has received guidance by his teacher, a Dhanur Vedic master healer from Kerala, India, learning aspects of yoga, meditation and healing arts. Lino enjoys sharing what he has learned, and helping individuals gain a better understanding as they practice the art of meditation and yoga.

A quote from Gary Renard:

About the Facilitator(s)

Gary Renard

Gary R. Renard

Gary Renard, the best-selling author of The Disappearance of the Universe and Your Immortal Reality, was born on the historic North Shore of Massachusetts. He became a successful professional guitar player, but during the harmonic convergence of 1987, he heard a Calling and began to take his life in a different direction. At the beginning of the 1990’s, he moved to Maine, where he underwent a powerful spiritual awakening. As instructed, he slowly and carefully wrote Disappearance over a period of nine years. In the fall of 2003, after much encouragement from other speakers and students, Gary began to present talks and workshops in public. His speaking career took off remarkably fast, and today he lectures internationally. Combining a disarming sense of humor with radical, cutting-edge metaphysical information and experiential exercises, this acclaimed teacher of A Course in Miracles has been described as one of the most interesting and courageous spiritual speakers in the world. Over the past seven years, he has spoken in 43 states, 23 countries, and was the keynote speaker at the International A Course in Miracles Conferences in Salt Lake City and San Francisco. Gary is also the most recent recipient of the Infinity Foundation Spirit Award. The award is given to a person who has made a meaningful contribution to personal and spiritual growth. Past recipients include Dan Millman, Ram Dass, Gary Zukav, James Redfield, Byron Katie, and Neale Donald Walsch.
