Waking Up in the Wild: Ocean

  • Asilomar State Beach Pacific Grove, CA, 93950 United States (map)

What would it be like to:

Hold a sense of steadiness in the midst of ever-changing external conditions;

Be present to constantly arising, moment-to-moment sensations, thoughts and emotions;

Be completely engaged and willing to be impacted by what is here;

Feel fully alive and connected with the miracle and majesty of the Pacific Ocean?

Join us for this half-day retreat of exploration and experience: bringing full presence of open senses, heart and mind, surrendering to the awe of the Ocean’s teachings of Waking-Up in the Wild.

Sittin’-in-the-Waves is a meditation practice developed by Marianne Rowe. Different from surfing, swimming or boogie-boarding, this practice is focused on being rather than doing while in the water. It is an amazing experience of exhilaration— of being moved, splashed and spun-around—and reclaiming balance of the body and mind.

So, grab a wetsuit (bring your own or you can rent one) and join us for this opportunity to meditate in Monterey Bay.

After our time in the water, we’ll enjoy a picnic lunch and each other, as we share our perspectives, insights and experiences.
