To touch peace is to come back to the place in us where we feel clear and calm, whole and connected. The distractions and pressures of modern life make it more important than ever that we prioritize pauses and practices that bring us to our inner still point where we can gather what we need to stay close to what matters and to be fully present to the grief and the joy of life.

Contemplative and devotional practice, meditative and mindful movement practice, time spent in nature and time spent in silence are all human rituals as old as time meant to guide us to an inner luminosity where healing and clear-seeing can happen.  

In this 5-day retreat, we will stop, rest, listen, reflect, be present, and nourish our inmost self. We return to the wider world feeling motivated and committed to continue pauses & practices in our everyday lives.

Retreat sessions include self-compassion practice, gentle yoga and meditation, qigong and walking meditation in nature, guided relaxation, sound-bathing, and forest-bathing. The retreat also offers generous free time for personal reflection, connecting with other retreatants, nature walks, canoeing or kayaking on Kanuga Lake, and simply resting and renewing yourself in a peaceful and restorative setting. 

Retreatants will find that there is something for everyone, regardless of physical limitation. No prior experience with yoga, meditation, or qigong is necessary. All are welcome.

Monthly Deep Rest Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is a guided lying-down meditation that induces deep relaxation and peaceful states of awareness. Research highlights how Deep Rest practices can release cumulative stress from the body and brain, reducing inflammation and down-regulating stress-hormone arousal while harnessing the body and brain’s natural abilities to heal and recover with focused, structured rest. Monthly Deep Rest Yoga Nidra falls on the second Sunday of every month from 2:15 – 3:30pm EST.

Community Meditation

Free gentle yoga and meditation session every Wednesday evening from 7pm – 8pm on Zoom. Seated tension-release on a chair or a cushion (your preference), breath-work to release distress from the nervous system, lightly guided seated meditation, concludes with a progressive relaxation that can be done lying-down or in a reclined position.

All are welcome. No prior experience necessary. This practice can be done in a chair, on the floor, on your couch, or in your bed. To join the group, simply email Jenne so she can send you the Zoom link ➡️ info@jennesluder.com
