Embodied Life Retreat

Johanneshof Graduate Zoom Retreat

Johanneshof Graduate Zoom Retreat with Russell and Linda Delman

Dear ELMP Graduates,

What a powerful time to be alive! There is an overflow of information, change, confusion along with a virus running its course through the world. Here in the USA, we are also freshly questioning issues of race, power, and social justice. We are hoping that this might be a true retreat where Silence, practicing together, Pausing and cultivating empathy can help us transform and re-vision our interconnectivity on all levels.

Our Johanneshof retreat has, of course, been cancelled. We have decided to create an ELMP ZOOM Graduate Retreat August 13-16. Many of you who have come to this retreat through the years know how deeply transformative it is to be in this atmosphere for a few days.

We will be presencing, in virtual reality, a feeling of being at Johanneshof. We hope to encourage ourselves to live a bit like we are there, and be in our homes at the same time.

Like all the ELMP's, at Johanneshof , where Zen meditation and a monastic way of life is practiced, we keep silence from the time we wake up through meditation and through our breakfast. We often take time for walks and to experience nature. People will take time for naps, reading and reflective writing. Perhaps you can approach these days like a "home retreat".

We are inviting / not demanding all who sign up to create a self-schedule of walks/baths/writing/reading, perhaps a second meditation period - so you are in a Johanneshof-like, personal retreat in our unscheduled hours.

Our retreat will include all Embodied Life practices with a focus on meditation. The intention is to deepen your personal practice and, for those interested, to look at the essential aspects of offering/guiding Embodied Meditation to others. Our movement lessons will support your sitting as will our listening-speaking practices.
