Renowned meditation instructors offer weekend immersion at Yoga Loka



The benefits of meditation are well known, but few practices are tailored to the special needs and interests of the individual.

Lorin Roche, Ph.D. and Camille Maurine, authors of Meditation 24/7 and the top selling Meditation Secrets for Women, have developed a life-affirming approach to meditation that embraces the uniqueness of each practitioner and invites variety and pleasure into the practice. Roche and Maurine will share their method during a weekend meditation immersion and training at Yoga Loka in Reno April 20 – 22.

“All human beings have the ability to meditate,” Roche said. “Meditation is a name we give to a universe of techniques for accessing our own innate ability to heal, rejuvenate and be in love with life. Meditation is intimacy with life. Practicing can feel as natural as breathing.” Roche and Maurine will guide participants through a variety of meditation techniques over the weekend, helping them to find a style that resonates with their own unique nature and what is going on in their life.

The practices include guided explorations of the senses, the instincts, flowing movement and breath-play. Anyone can do these, and all are welcome.

“When we tend the internal styles and practices that match our inner nature, meditation feels natural and we relish our experience,” Maurine said. “Meditation becomes an internal vacation and healing temple that helps us balance our energies and prepare for loving action.”

Roche is one of the most highly experienced meditation teachers in the United States. Since 1968 he has worked with educational institutions, athletic teams, hospitals, the military, the homeless and creative professionals. His other books include The Radiance Sutras–a new version of the Bhairava Tantra, Meditation Made Easy, Breath Taking and Whole Body Meditations.

Maurine is a dancer versed in the performing and healing arts, with 40 years of meditation experience. She gives a global online course based on Meditation Secrets for Women. She is the creator of the transformational Moving Theater process. Drawing on over three decades of teaching and 29 years of relationship, Roche and Maurine share their experience with humor and compassion.
