Fall Retreat with Swamiji - One Day Retreat

Aug 31, 2019 7:30am-4:00pm (ended)

As the summer comes to an end and the days get shorter, the falling leaves remind us that it is time to go deeper within ourselves and focus on our spiritual practices. This one-day retreat is led by Br. Dayamrita Chaitanya and is a great opportunity for introspection, meditation and prayers. 
Gentle Amrita Yoga, Meditation, Manasa Puja (mental worship), Bhajans, Scriptural discussions, vegetarian lunch, Question /Answer sessions with Swamiji and Chai/snacks followed by the regular Saturday Satsang.

Note: the Saturday program will start at 4:30 pm with Archana and is open to all. Ganesh murthi making will start at 3:30 pm in the Snack Tent.
