In every person’s life there comes a moment when they need time away in nature to regain inner peace. Whether you are a newbie or an experienced meditator, going on a meditation retreat is always a good idea.
There are now so many retreat programs you can choose from. And deciding on one is an overwhelming task. So, you might want to choose between retreat locations instead of specific programs as the scenery and activities may differ from place to place. Before we jump into the 9 most picturesque places for meditation retreats, let’s first find out how to pick the ideal retreat spot for you.
First off, ask yourself what kind of scenery are you looking for? Are you looking for the serene view of the ocean or the greenery of the jungle? While nature is better for meditation retreats, some people may want the scenery of a busy city too.
Secondly, what are your favorite activities? If you like staying active even when you are on a retreat, you may consider destinations where you can hike, play sports, etc. For some people, a sunset beach walk is all they need.
Lastly, what kind of accommodation do you prefer to stay at? Do you need to stay at a luxurious and elegant hotel for complete relaxation or hotels that commune with nature? What is your vibe?
When you have all these questions answered for yourself, picking your next meditation retreat destination will be a lot easier.
