The Sadhana Retreat is a weekend in which you focus on your sadhana and other issues related to improving your Krishna consciousness. You will intimately associate with other devotees, hear from them, and also share your challenges and realizations. Thus, the Sadhana Retreat is a wonderful way to avail yourself of the power and benefits of sadhu sanga.
We create a temple like environment with a morning and evening program. During the day there will be interactive classes and free time for extra chanting, study, journaling, and associating with devotees. And there will be plenty of wonderful prasadam and kirtana.
Dedicating an entire weekend to your spiritual practices is a special gift to give yourself. It is like a Japa Retreat for your sadhana and a wonderful transcendental vacation.
Many important aspects of bhakti that cannot be given proper attention in one hour temple classes are explored. More importantly, we discover how these issues relate to our personal lives and our practice of sadhana.
The Sadhana Retreat is meant to energize and improve one’s daily practice of sadhana. One of the primary ways this is done is through the practice of sadhana at the workshop. Therefore, the schedule includes a full morning program beginning at 5:00 am.
The extended length of a retreat allows more time for exercises, group sharing, writing, contemplation and one on one discussion. This provides an even greater opportunity for bonding among the devotees.
