A wonderful retreat with Radhikaji December 2015

The Himalayan Retreat in Swami Rama’s Ashram, Rishikesh was a wonderful experience for everyone.

There were 20 of us from 5 different countries. Of these 10 persons were already part  of the THATfirst Family.

  • India 7
  • Germany 6
  • U.K  5
  • Nepal 1
  • USA 1

We had daily sessions from 10 am to 12 noon. Occasionally we had an afternoon session from 3 p.m - 4 p.m. In these sessions we discussed the entire process of meditation, from gross to subtle.  For those who were new, many misunderstandings about the process and nature of meditation were clarified. For those who have already been part of the THATfirst family since longer, it was a wonderful opportunity to spend time together and deepen the practice. 

There were 4 meditation sessions everyday. Out of these one was guided and the other 3 sessions were independent sessions. All the sessions were mandatory. Indeed, there was a wonderful presence in the meditation hall as all of us meditated together!

We also enjoyed the beautiful walks along the Ganges and the simple vegetarian meals. And the 10 days were over far too fast!

Next week-long Retreat in 2017

We will have another retreat in the year 2017. Since there is a great interest in the retreat, we  will only accept those who join in our online meetings and participate actively. Participation in the online meetings is a pre-requisite to joining the retreat.
