PRIMORDIAL SOUND MEDITATION AND YOGA RETREAT
What if you were given a mantra that could instantly connect you to a deeper level of awareness—to the still, unconditional loving place within yourself?
Welcome to Primordial Sound Meditation.
Rooted in the ancient Vedic traditions of India, Primordial Sound Meditation has been revived by Deepak Chopra and can now be passed along to you by Chopra Center-certified teacher and cranial sacral therapist Andrea Carver.
As a participant, you will receive a personal mantra that matches the sound vibration of the Earth during the precise moment you were born—calculated with mathematical formulas according to the day, time, and place of your birth. When you repeat your mantra in meditation, you enter a unique vibration that allows you to slip into the space between your thoughts, into your deepest nature of pure awareness. You return to the innocence from which you were born.
This personalized mantra—if used properly—acts as a super conductor between your external and internal worlds. It pierces barriers and brings forth peace and unity of body, mind, and spirit.
Who should attend:
This workshop is specifically designed for intermediate and advanced students—people with experience in spirituality, energy work, meditation, and yoga.
If you are a beginning student, please note that Andrea will offer this workshop specifically for you in March, 2019. See more below.
Where it is:
For three days, you’ll retreat with Andrea Carver at a private home nestled against the red rocks of Snow Canyon. In this beautiful, natural environment, you’ll take daily hikes, practice yoga, and receive your primordial sound mantra to meditate amid warm sunshine and blue skies.
What you’ll receive from the retreat:
- Instruction developed by the Deepak Chopra Center that emphasizes the benefits and principles of meditation, as well as the importance of primordial sound.
- One-on-one time with Andrea, to receive your personal mantra and make it part of your meditation practice.
- The collective, nurturing energy of group meditation, which can enhance and deepen your personal practice.
- Soulful instruction that illuminates “that which passeth understanding”—to bring forth inspiration, intuition, and a deep sense of connection.
- Daily intentions, yoga, and hiking.
- Daily continental breakfast. Please note that apart from breakfast, meals are not included. We’ll venture to local restaurants for lunch and dinner.
- Access to a hot tub and swimming pool.
- Optional, 3-mile sunrise hike on Sunday, our departing day, to the vortex in Snow Canyon—a geological, high-energy location, where we’ll practice Primordial Sound Meditation together.
- Certificate of course completion.
What to bring:
- Yoga mat and clothing
- Hiking shoes and gear, including sun-protective clothing
- Snacks for the length of your stay.
How to sign up:

These accommodations will cost $200 for the length of the retreat, per person, and will be offered on a first come, first served basis.

Her love for Deepak and his teachings is contagious. She seamlessly incorporates my non-denominational beliefs within the material. I’m happy I took the time out of my busy life to experience this retreat. – Natasha Banne
Andrea’s meditation workshop has given me the tools to change how I see life, to act rather than react to experiences as they happen in my life. I’ve been given strategies for success. Andrea is an enthusiastic, alive teacher with a good sense of humor that added so much to the class. She gave multiple examples that make the teachings come alive. I easily understood the concepts she taught. I loved this class and this instructor. – Merlyn Picture
This is the first time I’ve attended a retreat of this nature. I am so happy I attended. I plan to make this a part of my daily routine. I can feel a difference in my attitude and I feel more balanced and excited to go home and share this with my husband. Accommodations and instructors are amazing and well worth the time and money. I would like to attend more of Andrea’s workshops, retreats, and anything else she offers. – Lisa Adams
Andrea’s mediation retreat was 3 days packed full of knowledge, laughter, learning from others and so much more. Her teaching style is flexible and vey easy to follow. She is very aware of all her students and strives to make sure everyone is grasping the concepts she is teaching. Andrea’s passion for meditation is catching!

Andrea’s meditation workshop is a valuable experience to help you understand how to use meditation to improve every aspect of your life: health, relationships, potentiality, happiness, personal joy, and blessing the lives of others. Thank you Andrea! You are a blessing to so many people. – Shelley
I enjoyed the meditation retreat. It gave me the skills I wish I would have had earlier in life. It was worth the time and money to gain this experience. This has helped me view my life as well as the world around me in a more positive way. This workshop has helped me have the confidence to make correct choices. It has helped me realize the brain-gut connection and I have angels to help me. I am excited to be able to put the things I have learned into practice and share them with others. I loved the yoga! I’m not very good at it and haven’t had much experience but I’m going to make it part of my life after this class. – M.B.
I finally felt I was home with my meditation practice when I received my own personal Primordial Sound.
– Connie Case
I’m so glad I had the opportunity to come on his retreat. I realized that meditation is just what I want at this time of my life. We live in a mad world. There is so much pressure everyday to accomplish everything. Meditation is the answer in helping me recognize what is most important, how I can serve other and puts me on a path of gratitude. I suffer from anxiety, through meditation I receive relief. The weekend retreat in St. George was just what I needed. The home where we stayed was amazing, the view of Snow Canyon spectacular. Hiking in Snow Canyon was perfect, and very healing to my soul. The information that Andrea provided in this class was critical in beginning the process of meditation for life. I highly recommend this for help in anxiety sufferers. – Liz Burkholtz
An amazing retreat! I’ve been meditating for 10 years and yet gained so much knowledge from this weekend. Learning my primordial sound was life changing for me. The setting was amazing, the people were fun, and Andrea has such a beautiful way of teaching that touches the soul no matter what your spiritual beliefs are. It was the perfect gift to give myself. I’m grateful that I did. – Rebekah Kammeyer
