An Anusara Yoga and Meditation Retreat
Summer Retreat August 24-28, 2023
With Rudrani and Jacalyn
Dai Bosatsu Zendo
We are preparing for our wonderful summer retreat with much excitement!! We are overjoyed at the overwhelming response to the announcement of our return to our beloved Zendo for our annual Summer retreat. From 2004-2017 our community gathered every Summer to practice Anusara yoga, meditation and inner reflection in this beautiful sanctuary.
Our retreat group will be staying in the guest house on Beecher Lake and in the Zendo nearby….a place of bright and enlightening energy. Our accommodations at the guest house, already comfortable and homey, have now been newly renovated. Photos of some of the changes have been included in this email.
The Zendo is a traditional monastery with residential monks in practice. We will be unfolding our retreat with their silent practice in the background. Zendo grounds are located in a 400 acre nature preserve in the Catskill mountains making this place a wildlife refuge of extraordinary purity. The Zendo's guest house has been our sanctuary for seventeen seasons of deep and fulfilling retreats. We return there with great celebration knowing the depths of practice we have enjoyed there as well as the extraordinary splendor of nature surrounding this unique place.
The theme of the retreat will be Returning Home to the Heart of the Great Self. The theme is a seed to plant inside. In the inward turning, we will co-create the retreat as we contemplate the deeper layers of our being through the lens of our practices and inner experiences.
Our four-day retreat will include
Two Asana Classes daily
- morning class (level 1 & open level separate groups)
- afternoon class (both levels together)One class that includes gentle pranayama, restorative asanas, therapeutics, yoga nidra and deep relaxation.
- Daily Morning meditation. Seeing foundations of our practice — deepening throughout the retreat with gentle and cumulative guidance.
- Three nutritious vegetarian meals daily. Zendo staff will prepare these delicious meals from the Zendo garden and local organic farms.
- Afternoons free time. Time to swim in the pristine spring-fed Beecher Lake, hike, nap, read, sunbathe, journal (bring a journal or a notebook).
- Evening Satsang. Satsang includes retreat group sharing, Q&A and exploration of experiences woven with the wisdom teachings of higher Self.
Transportation will be a community project. We will connect participants who are providing rides.
