A MARRIAGE OF MEDITATION AND YOGA
A SILENT NEW YEARS MEDITATION RETREAT
LED BY JEFF COLLINS AND GISELA KONRAD
*AT LIGHT ON THE HILL, VAN ETTEN, N.Y.*
*FROM DECEMBER 28TH, 2019 TO JANUARY 3rd, 2020*
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.
The cost of the retreat will be $675 for a single, or $615 for a double with double occupancy in the Lodge, $575 for a space in the cottages, and $470 for a space in a retreat hut. These costs cover the actual expenses of putting on the retreat. A bowl will be put out at the end of the retreat for a donation (dana)
If you are new to meditation and/or yoga, you are invited to try this experiment. All willing newcomers to meditation and yoga are welcome!
All meals will be prepared by our volunteer cook, Heike Polster, with the assistance of retreat participants during a one-hour work period each morning. They will be essentially vegan, and any dairy products will be optional.
