This retreat will focus on cultivation of Equanimity (Upekkha).

Equanimity is likened to the eye of a storm – offering refuge from fear and reactivity while maintaining a calm, engaged presence. Equanimity is the protector of wisdom and compassion, relieving anxiety in the face of uncertainty – while supporting the ability to live in peace and forgiveness with that which cannot be changed.” – DaeJa Napier

The retreat will be held in noble silence and will include alternating periods of sitting and walking meditation, mindful movement, instructions, and reflections, with a mid-day lunch break to practice mindful eating. The schedule will also include an optional discussion period to reflect on how to skillfully apply the wisdom of the practice in our daily life.
This retreat is suitable for all levels of practice; however some meditation experience is suggested.

We’ll be gathering at the newly opened Yoga House at Rising Fawn Gardens, Georgia. This beautiful 600-acre farm is nestled between the natural boundaries of Lookout Creek and the western slope of Lookout Mountain.

Bring your lunch and any appropriate props you will need for your sitting meditation practice. Rising Fawn has chairs, large bolsters and blankets.  Wear comfortable clothing and shoes for walking outside.

Covid-19 related policies:
For our safety we are asking everyone to wear a mask while inside. We will be able to properly ventilate and socially distance so mask will be optional while you are sitting on your cushion or chair.

Cost: $40 registration fee + Dana* for the teacher

There will be an opportunity to offer Dana to the teacher at the end of the retreat (financial contributions in the form of a check or cash).

*Dana is the time-honored etic and tradition of expressing gratitude through generosity that Janka is dedicated to keeping alive by freely offering the teachings, and her guidance. What this means is that she receives no compensation for teaching retreats and relies instead on the generosity of retreat participants.
