Nondual Retreat: Coming Home
with Kathleen and Jeanne

Boise, Idaho
May 19-22, 2017  

Pathless Yoga - Nondual Retreats with Joan RuvinskyThere is no practice that brings This, nothing that takes It away, and yet... somehow we are called... this ever-present, changleless light calling Itself home. 

During this predominantly silent 3-day retreat the myriad of practices from the nondual Tantric tradition will be engaged, including quiet sitting, body and breath sensing, iRest® yoga nidra, inquiry dyads, chant as well as outdoor practices from the Vijnana Bhairava.

Four gatherings in community per day are interspersed with free time for contemplation and integration as we experience the multi-dimensional exploration of the aspects of Being. The gift of silence allows true listening to emerge. Each day dialogues deepen the understanding that is uncovered as the retreat progresses.

about pathless yoga

nandiProfoundly influenced by the non-dual teachings of Jean Klein as offered through Joan Ruvinsky and Éric Baret, Kathleen Knipp shares her love of Pathless Yoga body and breath sensing, thetexts of Kashmir Shaivism and iRest® Yoga Nidra in Montreal and elsewhere in Canada and in the US. Having assisted in the development of the iRest® Yoga Nidra teacher training curriculum under the direction of Richard Miller, PhD, she acts as a supervisor for its certification candidates and maintains a private practice offering dyadic yoga nidra.

A former resident of Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, an E-RYT500 yoga teacher and co-founder and former director of Global Yoga Journeys, Kathleen has been fully absorbed in the study and practice of yoga for the past 20 years. She pursues her bliss
by chanting, hiking and back-packing, preferring wandering in the woods and exploring
the meditations from the Vijñâna Bhairava over most sorts of formal practice.

Jeanne Dillion is a Yoga Therapist and the Director of Yoga for Wellness, LLC. Jeanne’s yoga studies have been influenced most deeply by Joan Ruvinsky as well as many renowned teachers including Richard Miller, T.K.V. Desikachar and Gary Kraftsow. She is passionate about teaching yoga and meditation.  Jeanne finds deep joy inspiring others to find health, healing and enhanced wellbeing. Her teaching style is gentle and accessible.  She loves living in Boise with her husband, Lee, and spending time in nature playing with their many grandchildren.
