SKY Happiness Retreat at CU Boulder

The SKY Happiness Retreat is an innovative life-skills training and self-development program offered to students at more than 40 universities across the country, including Stanford, Yale, Emory and MIT.

Through experiential learning, students gain profound stress-management and leadership skills, develop a personal daily breathing practice, build strategies for social connection and engage in peer-driven service initiatives. Taught over three consecutive days, we introduce the SKY meditation technique, a scientifically validated breathing practice that significantly increases one's well-being and calmness. SKY reduces anxiety and stress markers.

The SKY Happiness Retreat is one of the coolest places to connect with yourself, make awesome friends, and have fun! Understand the sources of stress and the role of breathing techniques in reducing stress.
