A great way to leave the city life behind and just unwind in nature! We have 55 acres of wooded trails and rolling meadows and a quiet lake to enjoy. So relax and disconnect with some meditation for awhile.
This is the perfect place to get away and de-stress, enjoy nature & the bask in the energy of multiple spiritual retreats that have been held in this amazing space.
For an additional price you can arrange for a unique Massage during your stay, or an aromatic Meditation Ceremony.
This listing is primarily for the "Meditation Room" (see pictures) which is a private room with a lakeview balcony that sleeps 2 people on a floor futon - monk style. If you have a large family or friends traveling together, there is more space available in the "Great Room" for 7 more people on air mattresses.
You will enjoy the immediate change of climate when you drive onto the Samadhi Retreat property... here you will find great horned owls, coyotes, crickets, deer, ducks and chirping frogs. The peacefulness is serenely mingled with the lakeview, the wooded forest, the casual atmosphere, and the lazy lifestyle.
As our guest, you will have access to the second floor living spaces including the Great Room, kitchen, bathrooms, and outside patios. You may also enjoy the piers down at the lake and a walk through the paths in the forest. The listed room is upstairs at the Samadhi Retreat. This room has a full size meditation futon (and a twin size mattress) on the floor for a monk style experience, a romantic get-away, or travelers passing through looking for a unique experience.
David and Dawn will be available during your stay to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Special meditation ceremonies and massage can also be arranged for an additional fee.
Massage: Available with advance notice: $65 for 40 minutes with TWO practitioners, We've been told repeatedly that this Massage feels like an hour and a half.
Meditation Ceremony: The Samadhi Resin Ceremony™ was created by David Browning, and incorporates three dynamic tantric elements into one powerful practice. Almost everyone who has attended the Samadhi Resin Ceremony reports that they were able to attain the deepest state of meditation that they had ever had, while others experience profound spiritual awareness, which is beyond their ability to describe. (For more info, search "Samadhi Resin Ceremony")
Meals: With prior notice we may be able to arrange to serve you a fabulous dinner. Dawn has been experimenting with some really great vegetarian meals that might just be the highlight of a purely relaxing stay at the Samadhi Retreat.

We, David and Dawn, are the directors of the non-profit Samadhi Retreat & Meditation Center in East Texas. We truly love our little piece (peace) of paradise out here in the woods and have had some wonderful people come out to enjoy it with us. The Samadhi Retreat is a non-denominational monastery for spiritual remembrance.
