Holiday Retreat: Living Peace, Living Love

with Swami Jnaneswariananda, Swami Vashistananda, Swami Dharmananda, Swami Sivasankariananda, Hamsa Chaitanya, Anuradha and Angelika

December 21 - 26, 2018


The Christmas holiday symbolizes the highest in us – pure Devotion and Love. In the Yoga tradition the word Bhakti is this, and the practice of Bhakti is seen as both the devotional path of Yoga and also the goal of life – to come in to union with the absolute Love itself. In this retreat we will start and end our days with meditation and devotion in Satsang, enjoy twice daily Yoga Asana and Pranayama classes and wholesome vegetarian organic meals, and we will also participate each day in joyful chanting and divine song, enjoy the gifts of great musicians, and participate in special Christmas pujas. All who participate will certainly experience the bliss of the Self and also carry with them gems of both philosophy and practice that will help to experience the joy of Christmas every day. Join us for a special holiday retreat filled with the Yoga of Love and Devotion.
