Special Workshops

Saturday Morning: Meditation & Creativity. Dada Nabhaniilananda

Pretty much everyone comes up a great idea at least once in a while. But when they come, and how often seems to be beyond our control. There’s something that both Disney Studios and the ancient Yogis of India understood: to optimize our creativity we need to learn to control our states of mind. In this workshop you will learn how to do that through meditation, art and music.

Sunday Morning: The Secret of Meditation & The Heart Circle

Some people find meditation difficult because when they first start practising they do not feel any different. Through a simple shift in perspective, we can make our meditation a richly emotional, uplifting experience. After this your meditation will never feel like homework. Then we learn a special chanting technique called a Heart Circle Kiirtan.  Using music and mantra chanting we create such a beautiful atmosphere that everyone in the group feels a flow of love as their hearts open to the experience of the divine love within. 


Dada Nabhaniilananda, Didi Ananda Lalita, Jayamala

“We awoke each morning to the gentle sound of kiirtan and the sun peeking through the oaks and carried that sense of serenity and interconnectedness throughout the rest of the day. This retreat allowed me to refocus on what is truly important, and to meet others who are walking this same spiritual path. I greatly look forward to my next visit!!”

– Kelly Morgan

“I came to this retreat searching for some fundamental answers about my life and its direction. I was surprised to receive more than what I was looking for. Dada and Didi are both beautiful souls with contagious smiles, radiating a tangible kindness, ready with wise advice and gentle guidance. 

It goes without saying that the yoga we did strengthened my body, the meditation strengthened my mind, but putting these two in synchrony had the synergistic effect of strengthening my commitment to service. 

Prepare yourselves for more than just spiritual fulfillment, but also sunsets and moon shadows. You’ll begin to see the harmony within ourselves, our fellow brothers and sisters, and maybe even the cosmos.”

– Alexandra McGee
