The Art of Living Retreat Center (AOLRC), situated on 380 acres on a mountaintop in Boone, North Carolina, reopened on April 15 with its signature meditation programs and Ayurveda and R&R retreats.

AOLRC offers three meditation programs. The Happiness Retreat is offered twice a week and teaches participants the sudarshan kriya, “a powerful breathing technique proven to reduce stress, bolster immunity, relieve anxiety and much more,” according to the website description. The Meditation Retreat is offered twice a month, and The Silent Meditation Retreat is offered once a month.

In addition to its own programs, AOLRC hosts a wide variety of third-party retreats.

From August 20 to 22, Iyanla Vanzant, known for her work on Iyanla Fix My Life on the Oprah Winfrey Network, will lead a Fix Your Life Weekend workshop, teaching the skills and tools needed for people to become the best versions of themselves. The Wild Awakenings workshop from October 1 to 3 will be led by best-selling authors Cheryl Strayed and Roda Ahmed. Aspiring writers will enjoy a new program that explores the stories they long to tell while learning how to do so with clarity, courage, consciousness and depth.

“We look forward to welcoming guests back to Art of Living Retreat Center and introducing both new and past guests to our diverse wellness retreats, special guest speaker events and more, all set against an inspiring and serene mountain background,” says Venkat Srinivasan, AOLRC’s director of operations.
