The Soft Road Vedic Meditation Retreat - Memorial Day Long Weekend - May 22 - 25 2020

Menla Mountain Reteat Centre, Upstate New York

Intuition And You – Nature’s Guide To Greater Happiness

Choice and decision-making are central to the human experience – a powerful expression of our individuality, at the heart of all progress, and our evolution towards greater happiness.

Yet, for almost everyone, decision-making provokes a level of anxiety, self-doubt, or procrastination, depleting our energies and wasting precious time!

Life’s not meant to be this hard. It’s of huge benefit for you to become expert with Nature’s guide and direction finder – your intuition.

Intuition is present in every choice. In learning how to reliably recognize and cultivate your intuition, a different experience of life unfolds infused with intuitive guidance, self-trust, internal stability, and greater happiness sourced from within. We call this The Soft Road.

The practice of Vedic meditation creates the optimum conditions for perceiving – and following – intuitive guidance. This effortless technique unwinds stress and fatigue from the physiology, expands our awareness, and refines sensory perception.

Come and enjoy this opportunity for Retreat with master Vedic teachers and founders of The Soft Road, Neil and Melanie Kirkbride. Surrender to the simple structure of the days, be nurtured and supported, immerse in the peaceful setting, and experience the insights and profound benefits that come as we let go of do, do, do.

Daily knowledge sessions explore the vast potential of our intuition and address important questions including, how to recognize intuitive guidance, how to build self-trust, and how to overcome the fear to take action. Learn how to combine intuition and intellect to create the ultimate dynamic duo!

On this Retreat meditators can deepen their practice with “industrial-strength meditation”, also known as Rounding. No prior experience of Rounding is necessary; expert teaching and supervision is included.

The 4-day course to learn Vedic meditation is a requirement for this Retreat.



We will be offering the 4-day course during the retreat for an additional $800
