India Retreat 2017

Retreat 2017 – Established in Being, Perform Action

A Passage to India,

February 10 – 22 or February 12 – 22, 2017

Join Jeff and Adele for an enlightening journey to the land of the Veda

Imagine meditating in Rishikesh, India, the home of Vedic knowledge. A city nestled on the banks of the great river Indians know as Ma Ganga. Here, close to the river’s source, the water is crystal clear. Here your meditation practice will ‘cook’ you – meaning your practice will deepen, long-term stresses will be washed away and you will have even more access to the experience of inner bliss.

In Rishikesh, streets wind back through time. Ancient stone carvings. Ganesha: the remover of obstacles. Shiva: the Lord of Worlds. Blessed temples. Secret caves. Nightly Ganga aarti (sacred ceremony) performed by Pujya Swamiji and his students. Travel to an ancient city that expands the consciousness of those who make the journey.

And in your free time explore the city. Shops filled with silks, pashminas, malas made with semi-precious stones of ruby, sapphire, tourmaline, pearl, citrine, amethyst and rudraksha beads. Lovely. We will visit Ramana’s Garden, an orphanage that takes in some of India’s poorest children, educating them and preparing them for a productive life. We will climb to a hilltop temple to view the Himalayan massif.

Established in Being, Perform Action

While in Rishikesh we will learn how to act from the depths of our Being, rather than from our surface thinking. We will learn how to recognize and neutralize the many distractions and obstacles that can prevent us from having the life of our dreams; how to make the mind one-pointed, stabilizing and clearing it to be available for the bliss, peace and happiness that is our birthright. A life of fulfillment on the move. A life following charm. A life worth living.

In addition to daily talks and group meditation, we will be teaching rounding: a practice of light yoga and pranayama – a simple breathing technique – used to enhance one’s experience of meditation. Additionally, we have organized several day trips to surrounding Vedic sites.
