Retreats & Special Events

Meditation retreats are open to beginners and experienced practitioners alike and offer a chance to experience an extended period of meditation that is so vital to developing a deeper practice. Whether it's a single-day with your local sangha, or multi-day residential experience in a remote location, retreats support our deepest intentions to be free and offer a chance to hone specific mindfulness meditation skills. 

(3, 6 OR 9 NIGHTS)
MAY 26 - JUNE 4
watershed Center, Millerton, NY


This special retreat version of George Haas's signature Meaningful Life course takes place at the beautiful Watershed Center in upstate New York.  During the retreat, George will guide you through the four foundations of mindfulness, emphasizing radical self-acceptance, calm and clarity. With a stable mind and open heart as a foundation, we will then explore aspects of relational mindfulness: how you connect to others, how you can be completely yourself in relationship and work; in other words, how to achieve a meaningful life.  Each morning will include Dharma teachings with meditation instructions. The afternoon will offer an opportunity for longer, uninterrupted practice, and evening sessions will focus on loving-kindness meditation. This retreat is open to beginners and ongoing practitioners, and is encouraged for anyone seeking to deepen their meditation practice and bring greater insight into their daily life. Just two hours north of NYC, the center provides stunning mountain views and healthy, organic meals.  Check back soon for registration details!



George will be giving guest talks and day-long retreats this Spring in Boston, Western Massachusetts, New York and Santa Cruz. Check back soon for more details!
