Meditation and wellness retreats are an extremely hot topic right now, and it’s easy to see why. The modern American lifestyle moves at a furious pace, and as a culture, we’re extremely out of balance. If that sounds familiar, you’ve come to the right place (Boulder, that is). For anyone who is looking for an escape that goes just a little bit deeper than the usual weekend getaway, there is arguably no better destination in the United States. Here are just a few of the Colorado meditation retreats you’ll find in and around Boulder.
