At Home Retreat – The Marriage of Meditation and Yoga
Gisela Konrad and Jeff Collins
February 17 - 21, 2021
In one sense the goal of spiritual work is to become increasingly intimate with and expressive of our true nature. Both the tool and the fruit of increasing intimacy with our true nature are to dwell increasingly in a state of simple and precise awareness. This classic, four-night silent retreat is designed to serve the nurturing of this intimacy by providing the space and time for steeping in that awareness.
Each day the retreat will flow from periods of sitting meditation to walking meditation to several periods of yoga practice. The style of yoga offered is known as viniyoga, which is grounded in awareness of breath and of the physical movement that flows out of that awareness. Anyone who can breathe can participate in this yoga.
The retreat will include meditation and yoga instruction, Dharma talks, chanting, and group and private meetings with the teachers.
For our 2021 at home retreats, three fee tiers are offered. Please choose the option that best fits your ability to give in this time. We are deeply grateful for your support.
Please note that registration fees do not include dana for the teacher or the Center. In the Buddhist tradition the teachings are offered freely and teachers are not paid for their offerings. They rely on dana contributions from students. Similarly, Southern Dharma keeps registration fees low to ensure the Dharma is accessible to all. Fees cover only a fraction of Southern Dharma’s operating expenses. We appreciate your practice of generosity to continue the dissemination of the Dharma!
A limited number of need-based scholarships are available. Please indicate your interest in a scholarship during the online registration process.
