with Mark Coleman
Sea Trek is happy to offer a Vipassana meditation retreat and sea kayaking trip in the pristine wilderness of the Sea of Cortez. When you go on this trip, you get the same experience as our Classic Islands trip, but with a focus on mindful meditation with and within nature.
Meditation practitioner Mark Coleman has been practicing Buddhist meditation since 1984. He is a Spirit Rock Meditation Teacher and has been teaching Insight meditation retreats since 1997, and has written a book, Awake in the Wild: Mindfulness in Nature as a Path of Self-Discovery. With Mark on this trip, you have an experienced outdoorsman who can help you with the internal adjustments necessary on a trip like this.
The retreat will be mostly in silence to support the meditative process, and there will be several periods of meditation daily as well as time for discussion, talks on the themes of meditation in nature, talking circles and opportunities for one to one work with the Mark Coleman. There will also be free time to paddle, swim, snorkel and enjoy this spectacular setting.
