Whether you are in need of some space to think and reflect or are looking to nurture yourself in a spiritual and peaceful environment, we lovingly welcome you to be our guest.
We offer a number of Scheduled retreats throughout the year:
Christmas and Easter Celebration Retreats – These are truly spiritual ways to celebrate the beauty of these special times. These retreat are held in the silence and provide time for meditation, contemplation, relaxation and connecting to the stillness within. On these retreats there will be a Christmas and Easter message from Mata Yogananda Mahasaya Dharma.
Silent Retreats – Are held over weekends every few months throughout the year.
The above silent retreats are an intrinsic part of the spiritual path for all meditators. They nourish us spiritually so that we can commune in a deeper way with our Higher Self/ God within and engage more fully in all of life.

About Silent Retreats:
Giving yourself time to enter into the stillness is a wonderful way to help you to recharge your energy as well as to link more deeply to your higher wisdom. These retreats begin after a short introduction on the first morning, where retreatants have the opportunity to meet one another then we go into the silence except for necessities.
