Cultivating the Heart of Love: Loving Kindness and Compassion Daylong Retreat with Janka
Saturday December 2nd, 10am – 4:30pm
at Rising Fawn Gardens
This daylong retreat will focus on the practices of mindfulness, loving kindness, and compassion.
The retreat will be held in noble silence and will include alternating periods of siting and walking meditation, 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.
Bring your lunch, wear comfortable clothing, and bring any appropriate props you will need for your sitting meditation practice. Rising Fawn has large bolsters and blankets.
Registration fee: $35
The registration fee covers only the rental of the Yoga House.
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 ethic 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. Your contributions will help Janka continue to lead a life devoted to teaching. Your gifts also allow her to take time for her own practice, ensuring that her teachings are continuously enriched.
There are two work-study scholarships available for those in need. Please call Janka at 423-488-5406 to inquire.
