12-19 January, 2019 in Tiruvannamalai, south India
The obstacles seem to have dissolved and we will be back in Anantha Niketan Ashram for a week of silent meditation through deep rest—within the lively countryside and warm friendship of the Ashram.
26 March-2 April and 3-11, 2019 April in Sattal, north India
We will be back for 2 weeks again in this haven for life. Please note there is a day between the retreats this year by request of the Ashram.
In her teachings, Jaya Ashmore integrates her own love of meditation—and of life—with deep experience in the traditions of Buddhism, Advaita (non-duality), yoga, Christianity, and Hindu mysticism, as well as ecology, embodied movement, and the Japanese art of Jin Shin Jyutsu.
Born in the U.S, where she studied religion and art at Harvard, Ashmore began practicing meditation in 1985 and was authorized to teach in 1998. A gentle revolutionary, she has taught meditation through deep rest on silent meditation retreats in 12 countries.
She has spent most of her adult life in India with her teachers, and her nonprofit Open Dharma has supported awakening in thousands of people from any and no religion since 1999.
NB. Jaya is a much-respected senior teacher of the Dharma.. She offers precious retreats giving every participant much support. Strongly recommended. Christopher.
