Suniti Dernovsek is a choreographer, performer and movement educator living in Portland.  She has been a student of dance, yoga and Buddhism for 20 years. She teaches a warm and generous style of movement that is influenced by her interest in contemporary and classical dance forms, Iyengar and Vinyasa yoga and mindfulness.  She brings her love of movement, fondness of detail and her own understanding of practice into her teaching.

 

 

“The power of retreat with Caverly is that you are guided to design and practice a ‘tool kit’ to recognize and intercept the internal negative talk and feelings we each have. This happens through the mentoring of a skillful teacher, intimate dialogue with other workshop members, and the repeated practice of exercises that connect with the breath, calm the mind, and energize the whole system. Over the several days of a retreat, your ability to practice gets deeper, no matter what level you start at, and stays with you longer in your post-retreat ‘daily life.’” — James, Arts Administrator

A Note about Dana:
At One House of Peace, we endeavor to keep the cost of all our retreats low, so that our offerings are accessible to as many people as possible. We also keep our costs low to allow for dana to be given at the end of retreat. Dana is the Pali word for generosity and is a spontaneous expression of the heart in appreciation for the benefits received through the hearing and practice of the teachings at retreat. The encouragement is to find the place that allows you to experience generosity as an expression of gratitude for what is received, while not creating undue financial hardship for yourself. Offering dana is an opportunity to find the middle way. In the spirit of accessibility, dana is a suggestion, not a requirement. Suggested dana for the entire retreat experience is between $30 and $100 per day.

Awakening to the New Year - A Five-Day Retreat | Dec 27, 2017 - Jan 2, 2018
Awakening to the New Year - A Five-Day Retreat

mainspace

This retreat isn’t about making resolutions, though it is about intention. It’s about realizing your deepest heart’s desire. It’s about embracing change out of love and passion, not obligation and fear. Through awareness practice, we remember who we authentically are. We remember what we authentically are. When moving through the world from that recognition, intention manifests differently than when our attention is aligned with the feeling of separation. From separation, awareness practice is distorted into a self-improvement plan and resolutions are a familiar and painful by-product. This retreat focuses on the alternative.

Join us for an inspiring and empowering journey of self-inquiry on this silent retreat. The retreat takes place from December 27-January 2 at Still Meadow Retreat Center in the tranquil Oregon countryside 30 minutes from Portland. Click to see photos of Still Meadow Retreat Center.

No experience required. All are welcome. Given our deep commitment to being an open and inclusive community, accepting and supporting diversity in age, race, physical and mental abilities, as well as sexual orientation and gender identity, please let us know how we can fully support your retreat experience.

Activities include meditation, group discussions and private guidance sessions with Caverly, as well as mindful movement, guided imagery, journaling, and mindful walking — all within the backdrop of silence.
