Natural Meditation

Full Immersion in Effortlessness

 See a Video Message from Dean


Trying to meditate is self-defeating, like splashing around and trying to flatten out the waves on the ocean of the mind. But for centuries, sages have taught how to give up trying—how to sink naturally into the silent waters below the surface.


Dean Sluyter, author of the Amazon best seller Natural Meditation, has taught this approach throughout the U.S. for over 40 years, from prisons to universities. On this retreat, he’ll guide you step by step through several varieties of effortless meditation, using such “vehicles” as sound, the senses, love, a single breath, and the “I”-sense, so you can discover which are most comfortable for you.


No experience, attitude, belief, or cross-legged postures are required. Unplugged from the busy-ness of daily life, you’ll spend three days marinating in an atmosphere of deep silence, punctuated by lively discussions and Q&A sessions, a short walk from some of the most spectacular cliffside coastline in the world. You’ll go home rejuvenated, with all the tools you need to establish a daily meditation practice that’s a pleasure rather than a chore.
