Adam is the son of James Baraz, a co-founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Adam graduated from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, in Spring of 2011. He has done extensive retreat practice, including the 3-month retreat at IMS, a one month retreat at Spirit Rock, two month-long retreats in the Tibetan tradition, and numerous shorter retreats.
Adam recently returned from his second experience of a darkness retreat in Guatemala. Last time he spent a week. This time he went a bit longer. He’s calling his talk tomorrow night
“Let Go, Let’s Go!: 21 Days in Darkness”. Facing the mind with no external distractions for that long can be a transformative experience. He looks forward to sharing what he learned with the community and inviting you to explore the edges of fear, courage and surrender.
