Want to learn how to meditate? Deepen your practice? Meditate everyday? Or you want to reduce stress, improve your relationships, or search for more meaning in life?
Whatever your reason, the science is clear: Meditating every day can improve your health, happiness, focus, and energy.
The problem is, when you first try meditation, it's easy to say, "I can't meditate" and give up. Very few people ever taste the pure joy of a meditative mind. This 24-hour Meditation Retreat and Digital Detox is designed to change that.
The good news is that this retreat can be done in the comfort of your home. No need to stay in a temple for 10 days to experience the beauty of it all. You just need a few days preparation and 24 hours of silence.
So are you ready to slow down your mind and find some inner peace? Let's begin!
The overthinker looking for less stress, less anxiety, and new tools to calm the mind.
The newbie who wants to learn to meditate but doesn't know where to start.
The casual meditator who meditates occasionally but wants to deepen their practice.
Meditation is like music. There are many different styles and some you may be more attracted to than others. Either way, you'll get plenty of time to practice them all.
Most people never enjoy meditation because they never meditate long enough. Going deep for 24 hours is like a light mental shock therapy meets meditation marathon. You can thank us afterward.
Your addiction to technology and social media is making your mind work overtime. You'll set up a Distraction-Free Smart Phone and Digital Detox systems to give your mind a break.
In the evenings, you'll learn tools - like bullet journaling, mouth tape, and a 2-minute meditation technique - to help you fall asleep faster and sleep deeper. In the mornings, you'll practice a meditation sequence to warm you up for the retreat itself.
Most food in our modern diet spikes then drains our energy and leaves us feeling lethargic and constantly looking for the next hit. You'll learn an optional yogic monk diet designed to keep your energy balanced and say goodbye to that afternoon drowsiness.

24-Hour Meditation Retreat and Digital Detox
Hey I'm Mike. I'm former entrepreneur, behavioral scientist, and advisor to the United Nations. I first learned how to meditate in 2007 with Ajaan Buddhasak in Thailand. I've studied with Eckhart Tolle and Sadhguru at his ashram in India. For years, I've taught social entrepreneurs how to meditate and improve their wellbeing on retreats around the world. I also support humanitarian aid workers in times of crises.
In 2019, after selling my company, I started a meditation center in Cambodia. The concept was to teach meditation in a modern way, while also helping students learn at the Temples of Angkor Wat. We were just starting to pick up, then COVID happened.
We all remember that it was a hard time for many. On a whim, I asked on FB if anyone wanted to do a meditation retreat in the comfort of their home. In the first year of COVID, over 100 people did a 24-hour Meditation Retreat!
This course is the result of many iterations, all aimed at helping people like you learn meditation more easily and make it part of your daily life.
