Living Truth, Living Love
Living truth, living love, living our Essential Nature are not attainments. They are already the case—our nearest—waiting to be fully embodied. Love, truth and freedom are always knocking from the inside, longing for expression. Meditation does not entail journeying to another abode or realizing some higher spiritual self. True meditation enables us to realize that there is no mirror that needs polishing. In this recognition, suffering eases and unconditioned joy, peace, love, and ever-present peace and equanimity blossom.
During the retreat we discover that all movements of body, senses, mind and world are direct pointers that continually point to our Essential Nature; “This,” that is simple, beautiful, still, equanimous, and the essence of true love, happiness, peace, and well-being that is independent of circumstances; neither coming nor going; ever-present, yet unrecognized because of its simplicity.
Join us on this special Easter retreat where we engage practices of Body and BreathSensing Yoga, and periods of meditation, iRest® yoga nidra and spirited self-inquiry that celebrate awakening, not as an achievement, but as our ever-present Presence in which we experience our True Home that exists within us. This is the way of enlightenment. This is the way of true peace, harmony, aliveness, and love.
This live-streaming retreat offers a seamless experience that includes ongoing technical support and easy instructions. You’ll have the option to access recorded sessions, so you can easily engage the material on your own time and schedule. All levels are welcome.
This event satisfies the Certification long retreat requirement.

About Jennifer Cabanero
Senior iRest Trainer
iRest Certification Supervisor
Supervisor of Trainers
In 2003, Jennifer was introduced to the deeply healing practice of Yoga Nidra, and specifically to the teachings of Richard Miller.
in just a few sessions, She felt a profound shift in her ability to be at ease amidst the ups and downs of life. Jennifer immediately dove into both a personal practice and formal study of this beautiful form of self-inquiry. In 2010 she became a certified iRest teacher. She is also a Supervisor for trainees in the iRest certification process.
Jennifer has been teaching yoga since 1998. She encourages connecting the breath with sensation, moment to moment, so that the poses arise from an inner wisdom rather than an outer form imposed upon the body. Jennifer has also been the studio manager of The Yoga Tree in Seattle for the last 15 years.
Through iRest, Jennifer has become aware of a deep sense of wholeness that has always been present and with this wholeness, an ability to fully welcome life with all of its ups and down. How could she not share this with the world?
