Aaron Rodgers has emerged from the darkness.
On Wednesday, the Green Bay Packers quarterback left his highly-publicized darkness retreat and we are now getting a good look at the place the 39-year-old spent the past few days disconnected from the world.
Rodgers was at Sky Cave Dark Retreats in the Cascade-Siskiyou Wilderness in Ashland, Oregon.
But what exactly did Rodgers’ living situation look like?
ESPN reporter Xuan Thai shared details from the four-day retreat where people stay in dark rooms. It is a common ancient spiritual tradition around the world. During his stay, Rodgers was in a “Hobbit-like structure with 300 square feet of space, devoid of light, with a queen bed, a bathroom and a meditation-like mat on the floor.”
“Hobbit-like” is no exaggeration, either, with a simple doorway leading into a cave.

I won’t lie, it looks pretty cool. And considering there is some proof that prolonged dark retreats enhance the production of endogenous DMT in the body, it could definitely be a good time. All of the psychoactive molecules without taking any drugs.
Now that Rodgers has emerged from the darkness, the NFL world will be waiting to see the decision he makes about his future. As it stands now, Rodgers can either retire, return to the Packers, or force a trade.
It’s never a dull offseason with Aaron Rodgers.
