Most people find it far easier to learn anything with the support and guidance of experienced teachers in a structured program. Our weekly classes help you build, sustain and deepen your daily meditation practice. They provide an ongoing path of learning and personal growth. Classes are hands-on, experiential and include dynamic interaction in a group setting. Organized according to the student’s level of meditation experience, our courses are designed to help you get the most out of your meditation practice in the shortest possible time.
Enrollment includes access to recordings of every meeting so that participants can listen again and again to the talks, discussions and guided meditations. You’ll never miss a class even if you are out of town. Participate onsite or online.
Most courses are paired with a companion one-day retreat to give participants the opportunity to integrate their skills and learning in a deeper way.
Retreats are the best way to accelerate progress in meditation.
One-Day Retreats are designed to help participants stabilize their skills and deepen their practice. Tailored to level of experience, they provide an appropriate degree of challenge and learning.
Longer Retreats are for those interested in catalyzing deeper transformation. We host weekend programs and 5-Day residential meditation retreats every year. Complete immersion in the retreat environment 24/7 increases the process of taming, transformation and awakening.

– Heather Bloodworth, YMCA Executive
The learning was broken down into segments that I could digest so that the next class built on a solid understanding. If you’re looking for a place to get a handle on how to be mindful, how to reduce self-caused issues, ClearLight can’t be beat. Smart, kind people speaking clearly!
– Jim LaPann, Attorney
The retreat was excellent. I appreciate the guidance, the exercises, the discussions, the time for practice, and the care and compassion in helping us awaken in a loving way. I absolutely value the teachings on awakening and open heartedness. Best retreats ever!
