What is the SKY Happiness Retreat?
SKY Happiness Retreat is a holistic happiness and well-being program taught over 3 days on campus which trains participants in the evidence-based SKY meditation practice, breathing techniques, yoga, social connection and mindful leadership. SKY has been shown to significantly reduce anxiety and depression, lower stress markers, and increase wellbeing, focus and optimism.

Participants will also discover how to connect with others and their deeper purpose through engaging interpersonal exercises and service initiatives to increase self-esteem, social connection, positive relationships, practical soft skills, mindset of responsibility, and leadership skills.

The SKY breathing meditation - a powerful psychological tool to de-stress, purify and energize the mind & body, is very helpful for managing emotions effortlessly and being 100% more productive and happier in every aspect of life. Graduates of the SKY Happiness Retreat are taught an effortless and effective home practice that can be done everyday at home.
