About NextGEN New Year’s Meditation Retreat

Ever longed to spend time in the quiet with your deepest self, to get in touch with that inner light no words could ever touch? The changing of the calendar year in the dark of winter is a perfect time to do just that. Clear your inner space, reflect, reset and explore different meditation techniques in a supportive community with amazing, like-minded spiritual seekers of this rising generation.

Join us Dec. 29-Jan. 2 in the Southern California high desert in a sacred annual tradition to release the old and embrace the new. No meditation experience necessary: This retreat is a perfect way to begin exploring different kinds of meditation that will reignite your soul and light up the new year.

Come experience:
🏮 Silent meditation
🏮 Labyrinth walking
🏮 Sound healing
🏮 Mindful movement
🏮 Stargazing
🏮 Guided meditations
🏮 Journaling
🏮 Reflective group processes

This retreat is intentionally designed for those in the next generation aged 18-35ish as a sober alternative to the typical New Year’s party scene.

All meals and accommodations are included. Note that this is a (mostly) silent retreat. Stay an extra optional day after the silence is broken on Jan. 1 to connect, play and celebrate with your spiritual community.
