3-Day Home Retreat

Awaken at Your Own Pace
This program was recorded over an extended 3-day weekend and includes talks, glimpses and student Q&A. Both audio and transcripts are available. 

Loch guides you with unique glimpses and micro-meditations to build and support your awakening: waking up from your chattering mind, to waking as awake awareness, then waking in to embodied presence, and waking out to creating and relating in your daily life.

Enjoy this Retreat Time by Your Self or with Others

These recordings are perfectly suited for doing your own 3-day home retreat or letting it guide your practice over a few weeks or months, by your Self or with fellow students. Both the audio and the transcript are divided into short sections so that you can marinate after each glimpse. The link under each section opens a page with both audio and transcript. The audio player is at the top of the page.
