The retreat is a variety of sitting and walking meditations and talks on meditation.

The recordings may be used for your own personal retreat, spread out over five days as the original retreat was or at your own pace. For each day, there is one recorded morning session and one afternoon session.

Meditation Journeys the VR App

Presented by The New York Times
with Mark Coleman

Take a moment to be more mindful as The New York Times presents Meditation Journeys, an immersive VR experience that will transport you to a spectacular Pacific Ocean vista, the peaceful shade beneath the giant redwoods, a babbling stream where you can watch the sunrise and the quiet stillness atop the California hills at sunset. Throughout each journey, the meditation coach Mark Coleman, founder of Awake in the Wild and The Mindfulness Institute, will guide you through these mindful meditations.

With four videos in this collection, you can choose the meditation and location that suits your mood. Meditating while immersed in VR may change the way you think about mindfulness – or simply make it easier to shut off the outside world and focus on your meditation practice.
