Aaron Rodgers, star quarterback for the NFL’s Green Bay Packers, has just returned from his dark lair in Oregon and has been contemplating whether to play next season or retire.
Appeared in aubrey marcus podcastRogers spoke for the first time about a two-day journey into darkness.
“I spent a few days imagining what it would be like to retire and then imagine what it would be like to continue playing.
Last month, Rogers checked into a sensory deprivation facility called Sky Cave Retreats for an extended stay in a completely lightless room. He had previously said he was spending time in isolation, but he “had a better understanding of where he is in his life.”
When asked if a setback in the dark would shed any light on his decision, Rodgers was still unsure, but we’ll find out soon enough.
“I really wanted to reflect on some of the relationships in my life, some of my family, and obviously some of my career.
He said he expected some people to be unsatisfied with his answer.
“If you don’t like it and you think it’s drama, if you think I’m a diva or something, ignore it,” he said of the big decision. is my life.It’s important to me.I’ll make a decision soon.We’re going down that path and I’m really excited.”

Before entering the retreat, Rogers said on “The Pat McAfee Show” that he would be going for a four-day dark retreat.but according to reports by ESPNhe shortened his stay by two days.
Sky Caves owner Scott Berman said that Rodgers stayed in a 300-square-foot (300-square-foot) room that was partially subterranean and completely dark. His accommodations included a queen bed, bathroom, and meditation mat.
Rogers admitted to Marcus that it was difficult to navigate in the dark.
“The worst part was coming out of one of those kind of meditations where you think the bed is here and you’re disoriented. And that’s how many times I ran into things.” There’s a way: wall, or dun, there’s a bathtub.”
But eventually he realized the darkness was worth it.
“All the answers lie within me. In the dark, I touched on many of them, and definitely emotions. I am grateful for the time,” he said.
