SKY Campus Happiness Retreat

The SKY club is offering its SKY Happiness Retreat Feb. 10–12 in-person. This is open to all CU Boulder students, faculty and staff. It is a powerful weekend retreat filled with evidence-based meditation and breathwork practices, social connection, self-development and stress-management skills that bring calm, clarity and happiness.

SKY Happiness Retreat is a total well-being training offered to thousands of university students, faculty and staff across the country. Participants gain foundational stress-management and leadership skills, develop a personal evidence-based breathing and meditation practice, learn a short personal yoga practice, develop strategies for social connection and community building, and engage in peer-driven service initiatives. The SKY Happiness Retreat introduces SKY Meditation, an evidence-based meditation practice integrated with breath work that can significantly increase one's well-being and calmness, and significantly reduces anxiety and stress markers. The retreat features interactive group processes, experiential learning, emotional intelligence training, breathwork, yoga, evidence-based meditation, and service leadership. It's one of the coolest places to connect with yourself, make awesome friends, and, most importantly, have fun!

Research about SKY


The Yale study evaluated the SKY Breath Meditation practice along with Yale's in-house Emotional Intelligence program and MBSR (mindfulness). The study found, by practicing in the SKY, meditation program students reported improvements in six areas of well-being: depression, stress, mental health, mindfulness, positive affect, and social connectedness.

The Harvard study found participants of the SKY program reported significant decreases in perceived stress levels, sleep disturbances and resiliency against anticipatory stress.
