Returning to Source: The Depth Teachings of Meditation

October 14—20, 2021



“The goal of life is to live totally awake, where we see only the One, undivided Self in everyone and everything.” —Richard Miller

Meeting yourself is medicine. 

When you’re able to fully see, hear, and respond to what life is asking of you in each moment, you feel in harmony with the true flow of life. Meeting opens you to Source—your Essential Nature—and a full heartfelt embrace of both your humanity and your non-separate Essence that is loving compassion in action. 

Meet yourself on retreat and experience your underlying Source Essence of unshakable and unbreakable Awareness-Being-Presence that awakens your underlying felt-sense of wholeness, peace, joy, and compassionate loving kindness through the depth teachings of meditation.

This retreat invites you to realize your innate indestructible well-being through periods of guided and silent meditation, Body and BreathSensing Yoga, iRest yoga nidra, and interactive discussion. 

While taking a respite from your daily life, this one-week retreat will help you to:

  • Meet yourself and your Essential Source Essence
  • Heal limiting beliefs and emotions
  • Grow trust in your innate intuitive wisdom
  • Deepen your intimacy with yourself and all of life
  • Integrate meditation into all of your daily activities

This retreat is for:

Anyone with prior meditation experience wanting to dedicate an extended amount of time to their meditation practice, inner journey and discovery, and the experiential nondual teachings that underlie iRest Meditation. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need prior retreat or meditation experience?

We recommend that you have prior meditation experience from other traditions or that you’ve attended at least one iRest Institute immersive foundational meditation event before attempting this livestream retreat. 

Do I have to attend all seven days?

If you’re planning on taking the retreat to meet iRest Teacher Certification requirements then you need to attend all seven days. 

For all others attending the retreat, while we encourage you to attend as much as possible, you will have access to recordings if you can’t attend all seven days.

How do I prepare for a retreat at home via livestream?

To support your experience of this multi-day retreat, it’s best if you’re able to dedicate a room or quiet area. While there are regular daily breaks throughout the retreat, it’s ideal if you can be undisturbed to support a deepening into your inner journey. 

You’ll receive a comprehensive home retreat guide prior to the event that will include a Zoom guide, welcome packet, and tips for preparing your home space for retreat.


This retreat is being livestreamed using Zoom.
