Nondual Retreat: The Everyday Miracle
with Kathleen
Willow Springs, MO
October 19-22, 2017  

meditation hallCelebrating in community the fullness that is already here—the everyday miracle. Life as practice, practice as Life.

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 Vijñâna 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.

Note: an opportunity for deepening the experience with a massage from retreat participant, Mary Menefee, will be available.

about pathless yoga


Profoundly 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, the texts 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.
