McLean Meditation Institute Reviews
My husband and I have been interested in trying meditation and when we learned about McLean, we felt like we couldn’t pass up the chance to go. We took a guided meditation by Sarah, who was warm, welc... more »
Phenomenal! I chose to book a retreat for female Veterans with Sarah as a capstone to a program we held in Phoenix. Right from the start Sarah welcomed me and really catered the weekend retreat to wha... more »
Even before I found Sarah McLean I had been meditating for 35 years. However, I wanted to know more. After much research I chose McLean Meditation Institute; primarily to strengthen my own practise and yet I secretly hoped that I would feel comfortable enough to teach. The program is extremely well organized, instructive and supportive. There are challenging times to be sure and yet Sarah creates an open, respectful and intelligent community whose collective wisdom is inspiring and inclusive regardless of age or experience. It has been only 18 months since my graduation from the program and my life has radically changed. My practise and understanding of meditation has evolved to a new level. I love to teach and that is very rewarding, but on a personal level, my deeper meditation practise has supported me when events that would have previously sent me for a wee bit of a spin!, now allow me to sit comfortably in a deep seat of knowing and sense of calm. Just last month my father died and I was fully in charge of all arrangements. In the past, I would have spent far too much energy worrying about whether I was doing things correctly, or what people would "think" instead of being mindful of what was at hand. At this time of difficulty, I almost felt outside myself, except what it really was, was the recognition that I was in fact fully awake to my surroundings and therefore able to respond intelligently and compassionately to what presented itself. Accessing universal intelligence, compassion, and wisdom have been strengthened immeasurably and I have never felt more connected to what is real than I do now. Meditation is not a panacea, but it is an invaluable tool in facilitating your own evolution towards a life of peace and well-being....or, if you are so compelled, in assisting others. Whether you wish to deepen your practise or share your skills as a teacher, McLean Meditation Institute would be the place to go. Go for it! xo
You can't help but be drawn to this place! The intriguing location and sign lead you into a portal of mindful gifts and offerings as well as community centered meditation happenings. You will also learn of retreats, events and all the local workshops being hosted by Sarah. Whether you meditate or not, do stop in. They are happy to assist you in any part of your journey. Continuing education and teacher training is available.
