Led by Jeff Collins and Gisela Konrad
December 28, 2017 – January 3, 2018
Light on the Hill Retreat Center
Van Etten, New York
This silent retreat will flow from periods of sitting meditation (on cushions or chairs) to walking meditation to several periods of yoga practice each day. The yoga is grounded in the tradition of viniyoga, a style that is grounded in breath awareness and the physical movement that flows out of that breath awareness. So the awareness work moves seamlessly from meditation in seated stillness to meditation in movement. Beginners to yoga and meditation are very welcome.
Gisela has also been leading silent retreats for 20 years. She has been a certified yoga teacher for 30 years, studying under Gary Kraftzow, Richard Miller, and the late Joan Ruvinsky. She has completed two of the three-month retreats at IMS.
