Himalayan Retreat September 2017

After our last retreat early this year, many of you asked when we would have our next retreat. Our next retreat is in Rishikesh in September 2017.

This retreat will be an opportunity to go within and intensify your practice. You will be encouraged to take up special practices or observances during this time, besides 4 times a day practice.

The cost covers food and stay. Accommodation is in single or double bedrooms. It does not include your transportation to the Ashram, donations to the teachers and your personal expenses. 

You may not leave the Ashram during the course of the retreat except for daily evening walks. Those interested in shopping and sightseeing should do so before or after the retreat.

Self discipline and self analysis are the grounds for ashram life."
