Inside The Darkness Retreat Where Aaron Rodgers Meditated

According to Scott Berman, the owner of Sky Cave, Aaron Rodgers completed his Darkness meditation at his retreat.

Aaron Rodgers is known for spending his offseason in what can be described as unconventional methods of self-reflection. In 2020, the Green Bay Packers quarterback traveled to Peru to try ayahuasca, a plant-based psychoactive traditionally used in indigenous ceremonies, and nearly got stuck in South America as the coronavirus began to shut down the world.

He has openly discussed his affinity for retreats — yoga retreats, meditation retreats, silent meditation retreats. So, when he recently shared the news that he was about to go into a four-night darkness retreat — a visit he had been planning for the past four months — it sparked a lot of online conversation, some good, some not so good.

“I think we could all use a dose of turning our phones off once in a while and unplugging from society, some people don’t want to do a few days and nights of darkness, and that’s fine,” Rodgers recently said on “The Pat McAfee Show.” “But to out and out judge it like you have any understanding of it, that’s not exactly a way to come together as a society and connect better as a people.”

Rodgers, 39, completed his darkness retreat at Sky Cave on Wednesday, according to Scott Berman, who owns the facility on hundreds of acres of forested land in southern Oregon. The quarterback, who has played his entire 18-year NFL career for Green Bay, hasn’t said whether he’s playing in 2023. Before entering the retreat, he said he was hoping to “have a better sense of where I’m at in my life,” but was not going to the retreat just to figure out whether he’ll play in 2023 or retire. He is under contract with the Packers for $59.465 million guaranteed if he plays in 2023.

Due to ESPN rejecting the request by reporter Allison Williams for religious exemptions from the COVID-19 vaccine, she has filed a lawsuit against ESPN, asking for compensatory damages.
