Nondual Retreat with Joan Ruvinsky
St. Louis (Cook Station), Missouri
September 16-20, 2010
In the simplicity of just listening, concepts are seen to be what they are, merely concepts, and the background of being reveals itself as we come to celebrate the multitude of forms the formless takes. Paradoxically, this predominantly silent retreat fulfills one of the requirements for the Integrative Restoration Institute iRest® Yoga Nidra Teacher Certification.
Using a myriad of practices from the tantric yoga tradition including pranayama, quiet sitting, body sensing, chant, yoga nidra and inquiry dyads, a multi-dimensional exploration of the aspects of Being is experienced. Four gatherings in community per day are interspersed with free time for contemplation and integration. The gift of silence allows true listening to emerge. Each day dialogues deepen the understanding uncovered as the retreat progresses.
