21 Mar Yoga of Gratitude Retreat – MA 2013
2013 Yoga of Gratitude Retreat
A unique summer event on the marshes of New England exploring the theme of gratitude. This weekend retreat was defined by participants’ authentic sharing and strong devotional practice to daily yoga and meditation. Such a joy to facilitate yoginis who, even when challenged by personal loss and difficulties, take the practice of Aparigraha to new levels, finding the blessings in everything.
“I want to thank you again for an amazing retreat!! It was in your studio that I truly began to understand the meaning of yoga and spirit. Thank you for showing me the path–now MY work is to follow it! You have a very special gift and I feel so very blessed to know you.”
“I was reminded of how important my practice is to me and all those around me. My being able to forgive seems to have taken a new “feel” and for this I am grateful!”
“A special thanks to Jennie for sharing her love and gratitude with us. I’ll always remember, “the love you withhold is the pain you carry,” not to mention that “meditation is the way.”
“Loved the environment – casual and homey; the first night dinner together – great way to break the ice; the weaving of teaching – discussions, chanting, meditation, quiet time with the yoga practices; the food selections – light and healthy; the size of the group – intimate and comfortable. I will carry forward a daily gratitude practice whether it is woven into meditation, writings, or mantras…the focus on consistently looking at people and situations with thankfulness and joy.”
