About this trip

The all pervasive sound of silence. But this sound, for most, is drowned out by the clanging of this ever-changing world. The sounds of our hopes, our dreams, our fears, our ideas. Our minds long for silence, but have instead become addicted to grabbing, fixing, and understanding. During this intensive, we will take time everyday to listen. We will work on the suspension of our thoughts and ideas, and enter into a state of meditation. 


Meditation is the absence of manipulation. It is total acceptance, it is letting go, and it happens when we stop doing what we “should” do and instead allow ourselves to be led by the wisdom of our heart.


During this Sadhana intensive we will be practicing 2 short mantras, followed by a short pranayama, and then a longer seated meditation. Students are encouraged to meditate 20 min morning and evening during the course. We will meet 3 times a week on zoom to support each other, discuss, and practice.


If you are looking for a supportive meditation community, then this intensive is great for you!  All sessions will be recorded and are accessible for a week after the live session. Meditators are encouraged to show up for live sessions, but can watch the recorded session if they are unable to attend live.


Schedule: Live sessions will take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 10am NYC time. Please note we will not have Saturday sessions on April 23rd and April 30th.


Use code EARLYBIRD to save $99 by signing up before April 14.

The accommodations and food and yoga were great. And big thanks to Marina for allowing me special kitchen privileges! However, a couple of things I reasonably want for $3000 a week: There is hot water for showers only during certain hours of the day. We weren't told this upon arrival, so after two attempts at a hot shower, I took one with cool/lukewarm water. Not good. Turn on the hot water. Also, this is the 21st century -- so in spite of Cocoon's virtue signaling "great opportunity" demurral/excuse in the small print ("Please keep in mind we are in the countryside, not NYC. This is a great opportunity to leave your phone in your room, and enjoy nature, a conversation, or a lovely book") -- there should be a working, stable internet connection in every room, not just in the main gathering space. As it was, you had to sit in the freezing foyer on an uncomfortable bench to do any reasonable internet business or work. Don't tell me I have to talk to someone or read a book in my free time. I'm a grown up. Zero stars for this. Cheers!

Above and beyond all expectations - though the weather was a little chilly (early April), the location (Cocoon Portugal) was idyllic and the food was incredible, the meditation, yoga practice, and pilates bootcamp - just WOW - the overall experience literally defined what a PERFECT RETREAT looked and felt like in real life. Jared, Rebecca, Alison, and Jason + Cocoon Portugal, Anton, Tony = these people held such a warm embrace and a holistic container for us to heal and to just be. Thank YOU so much!
